Suzuki has issued a recall of the GSX-S1000 and the GSX-S1000F for a potentially faulty radiator hose. No specific consequences or risks were given.

The recall affects 174 registered motorcycles in the UK, and has been instigated due to a radiator hose clearance concern. Despite no reported issues in the UK, customer safety and satisfaction is the highest priority, and Suzuki has elected to commence a recall to fit a new component to avoid any potential issues in future.'

'Customers affected with officially imported and registered machines will receive a letter from Suzuki shortly after the modification parts arrive, advising them to contact their local authorised Suzuki dealership, who will carry out the fitment of the new component free of charge. The work will take less than one hour to complete.’


Suzuki UK has no documented issues, but they have decided to issue the recall regardless.

Think it might be about top rad hose on left hand side, it seems rather close to exhaust headers. I put some heat tape on inside of hose (not visible ) just to be on the safe side. Haven't received recall letter yet but now my traction control select button has stuck in! So a trip too dealers today is in order as it's stuck in mode three (boring) lol.

A little updating.
I have received two letters:
1) Possible problem at the radiator hose that could come in contact with the exhaust manifold;
2) Suzuki found that the radiator hose has been mounted improperly;
Two letters for say the same thing, I think.

I'm waiting for a contact by the dealer

My dealer fixed it when I bought the bike, it was just a rubberband to keep the radiatorhose away from the exhaust. Took about 2 min to fix it :)

wrong...the dealer must solve the problem in other way.
he must remove the hose amd rotate it.
the hose have 2 colured spot, one white and one yellow.
he must respect the right mounting Suzuki instruction!

2 min? Are you sure that he have done the work? 0:)
I've followed my official mechanic during all the operation and I can ensure you that he spent much more time....

Remove half fairing and tip.
Remove radiator hose if is damaged or if it's ok only make the inversion of it (up/down).
Elimination of all radiator liquid.
Put the radiator hose on.
Put new liquid inside radiator.
Start engine for help new liquid to go in all the system.
Make a top up of liquid that is gone in the system.
Put on the half fairing and tip

:)

When I asked my sales guy he shrugged but assured me any recall items are fixed prior to sale. We'll see I suppose.
When i bought a Yamaha it said it needed a recall on their website but it didnt show anything on the dealers system. Turned out after contacting yamaha directly that the fix on that particular bike had been fixed whilst it was still knocking about in the factory.

Communication always seems pretty poor regarding recalls. My previous two bikes have all been new and all have required some sort of recall.

Yep one of the reasons why I think I'm gonna wait for the 2nd or 3rd batch to be imported maybe all the teething problems will be sorted out..!!
