Anyone else get a recall letter in the mail? Post up what it was about
I saw one in the post office box so to speak. This was in regards to a 750. Not sure what it was about. 'IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL'
Yup, just got mine. Looks like most 08 and above Suzukis. Standard rectifier problem that I've been having on my Gixxers for years. Guess Suzi isn't going to provide refunds for the previous replacements .
Do you guys know if this applies to the 2010 GSXR 1000?
the biggest problem with suzuki regulator/rectifires is not the rec reg itself it is an insuffienciant ground
that chokes off the current flow through the rec/reg and then cooks it. i had that problem with my tlr,
when running, the charge voltage was inconsistant the rec/reg was running at about 300 degrees so i made a jumper wire from the rec/reg ground and ran it straight to bat ground with in less than minute my eec/reg temp dropped to about 140 gegrees and my charging voltage was consistant. i have in my experience found with japanese cars /bikes and other vehicles that their electrical systems are notorously under grounded .to check yours just do a voltage drop test against the ground side of your rec/reg.

From what I'm hearing from Orca Bay, they are being backordered due to the Japan situation. Wouldn't you think the US would have a million in stock since it's not a new recall for US bikes (which mine is btw). ??
Yeah the drilled pic is an ECU out of a Kawi....guess it was over heating too.
You should see where the reg/rec is mounted on the Aprilia Shiver. Bolted right on top of the front cylinder.
