Suzuki Recalls 2017-2018 GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000A, GSX-R1000RA, and GSX-R1000RZA Motorcycles For a Bad Engine Control Module (ECM) That May Cause High RPM In Neutral If Second Gear Is Not Reached Correctly and Rider Then Tries To Shift Into Second Without First Disengaging the Clutch Thereby Causing the Motorcycle's Chain To Stretch Or Break

Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain 2017-2018 GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000A, GSX-R1000RA, and GSX-R1000RZA motorcycles.

When upshifting between first and second gear, if the rider fails to engage second gear, a neutral condition will exist and may cause very high engine RPM. If the rider then shifts into second gear without disengaging the clutch, the motorcycle's chain may stretch or break.

If the drive chain breaks, the motorcycle will lose power, increasing the risk of a crash.

3,097 units are affected.
