  1. This is probably old news for some but should be a regular stop for everyone, it's not just bike orientated people.

    Here are just a few bike listed for recall matters.

    http://www.recalls.gov.au/view_recall_detail.php?Recall_ID_Auto=14748 Triumph ST Sprint

    Many more brands and models included.

    This site is invaluable for most goods. We should have a constant link to it, as it is safety related?


    Product Info: Model: MT-01 (T&V).

    Defect Details: It is possible that the rear suspension may collapse during riding due to the bearing installation part of the suspension arm breaking. It could become damaged by a stress corrosion crack that is caused by a remaining stress at the bearing press filling part and a corrosive attack on the surface of the stressed area by a corrosive agent such as that which is used to melt snow.
  3. nice post.. thanks for the info..
  4. cool post but mine has been checked before buying
  5. Wow going from the majority of opinions i thought the list would only apply to korean bikes :shock:
  6. Hyosung GV650
    :shock: That's a lot worse than most of the other recalls.
  7. The Koreans have a cunning plan, they don't actually issue recalls.
  8. Or salt air for those who live near the coast......
  9. What, warm water? No wonder I don't ride a Yamaha :p

  11. Nice info there :)

    Yeah, they realise where the Japanese went wrong, by flying their own planes, and just built crap bikes for us to kill ourselves on ;)

    Yeah, that tends to happen... :?
  12. Good post, Ive already had to have the Gixxer thou back to the shop twice since June. 1st one was a posible loose generator bolt ( 1 month after purchase) and then the recall above. Now the Injection warning lights are playing up so back she goes next week. Shes so new and so friendly with the mechanic already :(
  13. well, it IS a spewzuki :!: ;) :p
  14. Great post
    I'm gonna make this a sticky and people can add recalls as they come up.
  15. Sounds like a friday arvo or monday morning build that one.
  16. Good onya Joel :LOL: Nah, not just our bike, first 2 times it went back we got recall notice from Suzuki Aust, so must have been majority recall. Hopefully shes all sorted now. Mind you, washing the 600 on the weekend and noticed that lower fairing bolt has fallen off. Never a dull moment. Does nt matter , they both look horn. :demon:
  17. http://www.recalls.gov.au/view_recall_detail.php?Recall_ID_Auto=15119 Hyosung 650

    There plan has been foiled or they've out smarted themselves :wink:
  18. Hyosung or S & T Motors as they are actually called have issued no global recalls it is left to the importers to make that call (Decide what they can get away with), this recall was issued by the US and European importers a year ago and the GT650 engine recall was only ever issued by the European Importers.
