Suzuki Issues Recall of 2007 GSX-R1000 Motorcycles for Idle Speed Control Problem

Suzuki has issued a recall of certain 2007 GSX-R1000 Motorcycles.

On certain motorcycles, each time the ignition switch is turned off, the engine control module (ECM) pre-sets the position of the idle speed control (ISC) valve for subsequent engine starting by opening the valve completely and then closing it to a start-up position. Due to improper shape of the internal mechanism that moves the ISC valve, the valve may remain in the open position instead of moving to the correct start-up position. This can result in no-load engine idle speeds as high as 5000 rpm the next time the engine is started. If the rider chooses to operate the motorcycle in this condition, the rider may have difficulty operating the motorcycle, which could result in a crash.

13398 units are affected.

I heard that news when I was in China. Another mechanical error from the plant manufacturing plant of Suzuki.
