Suzuki Recalls 2013-2015 SFV650 Motorcycles for Improperly Positioned Fuel Tank Breather Hose

Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2013 Suzuki SFV650 motorcycles manufactured March 23, 2013, to April 8, 2013, 2014 Suzuki SFV650 motorcycles manufactured October 24, 2013, to November 26, 2013 and 2015 Suzuki SFV650 motorcycles manufactured August 9, 2014, to September 12, 2014.

During assembly of the motorcycle, the fuel tank breather hose may have not been positioned properly and may become kinked.

If the fuel tank breather hose is kinked, pressure may build inside the fuel tank and cause the tank to crack, resulting in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

287 units are affected.
