Suzuki Motorcycles Recalls 2011-2014 GSX-R750 and 2009-2014 GSX-R1000 Motorcycles for Damage to Left-side Drive Chain Adjuster After Upshifting

Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 GSX-R750 and 2009-2014 GSX-R1000 motorcycles.

If a gear is missed while upshifting, the strain applied to the drive chain after the next shift may cause the rear axle to move, damaging the left-side drive chain adjuster. If the drive chain adjuster gets damaged, the drive chain may come off, removing power to the rear wheel, and increasing the risk of a crash.

23,073 units are affected.
