Lightbulb No Recall 4 ECU

How strange this is becoming , there is talk that some distributers maybe recalling some bikes for an ECU replacement. In another thread, "E-Mail received" there is a post with confirmation , in UK, that some bikes are definitely getting them there. In an earlier thread'' Suzuki is listening'' i told the forum that my dealer had phoned me to say he would replace my ECU in a week or 2 when he received the part. There was never any mention of a re call , and why would there be a recall.We all bought the bikes as they were and knowing the throttle snatch was an issue. If there were faulty brakes or fuel lines with no cir clips or whatever that was a fault of manufacture I would expect a recall. This is rider preference , some even saying there is no problem. So I will reiterate, I e-mailed Suzuki Australia, telling them that some forum members had been given a replacement ECU. I asked if I could have one . My dealer phoned me to say that he had been authorised to fit a replacement ,when it arrives in approx 2 weeks . There was no recall then, But I am now really puzzled by the varied responses some are saying yes.This is something each owner needs to pursue with first his dealer, next the distributer in his country. Good luck, if and when I get mine i will post the results and improvements if any .

Have the new ECU been installed as yet? And if so, what is the difference. Has it improved the jerky throttle and also is the bike's acceleration still the same, better or more muted?

If I wasn't planning to use Woolich gear to write to the ecu I'd be all over hitting up the dealership for a replacement ecu. My guess is the next release of the gsxs will have the new ecu. Stories of rough on/off throttle and difficulty maintaining speed will do too much to damage the brand. And by next release I'm thinking all new gsxs. I'm happy with mine because I have HealTech TRE and bazzaz with a dyno tune (pm me and I'll email my maps, I've already done this for another member here and he likes the mid range increase) and expect it will be better again with the ability to write to the ecu but all that costs money. There are no legal replacement exhausts and when you install PCV or bazzaz you disable the oxygen sensor so you loose altitude adjustment as well. So why no save some cash and get the bike you wanted by hitting up the dealer for the better ecu?

Edit: to be clear I'm not asking for money for my bazzaz map, I'm just sharing it with members here. I tried to email bazzaz a few times and they ignored my emails so I'm not going to upload a map that I paid hundreds for to their website.

It seems that North American bikes do not seem to have the snatchy throttle issue.

*** ECM issue update ***
Just spoke to Suzuki UK, have been informed that the actually IS a recall on certain models for replacement ECM (ecu). The receptionist for Suzuki UK was unable to provide me details of why there is a current recall though.
I have been asked to phone my local dealer quoting recall reference M-T-0012 to give them my chassis number and they will be able to confirm wether my bike is in the category for a recall. If they are unhelpful then I shall be calling Suzuki Uk back who are able to search as well.
* M-T-0012 *
From Simon on the Facebook Forum today...

I'm not sure how you figure that but you are wrong.
