Just spoke to my dealer. Here is a portion of what was in the service bulletin from Suzuki USA:

Suzuki Motor Corporation has instituted a safety recall campaign to replace the front brake calipers. The supplier of the calipers applied a surface treatment to change the color of the brake caliper body. Due to insufficient sealing, some treating liquid may have entered the brake piston cylinder, damaging the surface of the brake piston seal groove in the piston cylinder. This condition can cause brake fluid leakage. To ensure customer safety and satisfaction, dealers will replace the front brake calipers.
My VIN was within the range and they say that parts should be available for ordering this coming week. My F's VIN ends in 00097 but each model (Naked w/ or w/out ABS, faired, California market or not) are each considered different models so it'll be hard to map this out.

Attached is the VIN decoder from the service manual. It is not the list of VINs covered by the recall.
