Suzuki Recalls 2005-2006 GSX-R1000 Motorcycles for Frame Crack

Suzuki has issued a recall of certain 2005-2006 GSX-R1000 motorcycles.

American Suzuki (Suzuki) is conducting a safety improvement campaign involving 26,082 model year 2005-2006 GSX-R1000 motorcycles. Cracking or breakage of the motorcycle frame can occur in certain extreme situations where unusually high stress is placed on the frame. Repeated hard landings from hazardous maneuvers such as extreme or extended wheelies or other stunts may generate sufficient stress to cause this problem.

26082 units are affected.
