RECALL: Suzuki GSX-250R Headlight Issue

A ‘Glaring’ Issue With The 2018 GSX-250R Headlight

Driving at night isn’t my favorite thing to do – especially on a motorcycle – especially if my headlight decides to turn off mid-ride. I’m sure we’ve all driven cars that have a burnt-out headlight before, but luckily there’s a second to act as back up in addition to your brights for many layers of reassurance. Heck, my roommate has driven his car with a headlight out for almost a year now (mind you, neither of us drive at night).

The 2018 GSX-250R takes this problem and makes it 10x as dangerous as it’s a motorcycle-related problem. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published a document stating that 2,040 registered in the USA could be affected.

The document includes the issue and states it as a problem regarding the bulb filament breaking prematurely. Luckily this isn’t the end of the world as Suzuki suggests taking it to the dealership to get a new bulb popped in, but we can only hope that there isn’t something beyond the bulb that is causing them to show premature signs of breaking.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to replace a lightbulb (insert how many X does it take to change a lightbulb joke here), but Suzuki recommends you still bring it to a dealership so they can keep track of the repair when dealing with the recall on their end. No worries, it’s covered under warranty even if your unit is expired.

If you ride a smaller GSX in America it’s probably worth giving the Suzuki customer service department a call and giving them your VIN to ensure you don’t own one of the bikes affected.

Triumph Models Recalled Over Brake Detaching Issue

Triumph Motorcycles Australia has issued a recall for 928 motorcycles over an issue with the front brakes.

Triumph Street Models Recalled

Triumph Motorcycles Australia has issued a recall for 217 2019 and 2020 Street Scrambler and Street Twin models over a wiring issue.

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says: “Misrouted harness wiring may become damaged by the lower lug on main frame headstock when the handlebars are rotated. Damaged wiring harness may cause the engine to stall, and increase the risk of injury and death of the rider or other road users in an accident.”

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted and asked to present their motorcycle to an authorised Triumph dealers to have recall work carried out free of charge.
A new VIN label protector will be fitted to the motorcycle to prevent contact between the wiring and the headstock lug. Some motorcycles may also need a rework of the harness.

Loose Reflector Forces Triumph Tiger Recall

In what may seem a trivial issue of compliance, the reflector on the 2020 Triumph Tiger 900 could come loose and fall off.

Triumph Motorcycles Australia has issued the recall notice through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

It affects 74 current Tiger 900 models sold from 2 March to 21 August 2020.

The official notice says: “If the reflector is missing, affected motorcycles may be less visible to drivers of other vehicles, which could increase the risk of a crash, resulting in injury or death of the rider.”

Owners may also cop a fine or vehicle defect notice for an illegal motorcycle. Across Australia, these fines are less than $100.

All owners should contact Australian Triumph dealers to make an appointment to have the rear reflex reflector replaced free of charge.

The recall notice says the front brake calliper may leak brake fluid when parked.

This fluid weeping is related to a small incompatibility between the inner seal and seal groove of affected brake callipers.

This could affect brake performance.

Owners should also be aware that brake fluid is extremely corrosive and may affect paintwork.

Riders are asked to check their front brake reservoirs for leaks and contact their local dealers for an inspection and free replacement.

Fault fuel pump

BMW Motorrad has also issued a recall on several 2005 to 2012 models over to a potentially faulty fuel pump.

The following BMW models are involved:

  • 2009-2011 BMW K 1300 S
  • 2009-2011 BMW K 1300 GT
  • 2010-2011 BMW S 1000 RR
  • 2005-2011 BMW R 1200 GS

  • 2006-2008 BMW R 1200 S
  • 2005-2008 BMW R 1200 ST
  • 2006 BMW HP2 Enduro

  • 2005-2008 BMW K 1200 GT
  • 2012 BMW K 1600 GT
  • 2012 BMW K 1600 GTL

The recall notice says excessive loads on the fuel pump flange could cause the plastic to crack and lead to a fuel leak.

Owners are asked to bring in their bikes to a BMW dealer for an inspection and the free installation of a reinforcing ring.

Some owners whose bikes had a support ring replaced in a 2013 recall may require a new fuel pump.

They are warned of potential fire risks from the fuel leak.

Triumph Recalls Street Models Over Wiring Issue

Triumph has issued a global recall over wiring issues for its 900cc Street Twin and Street Scrambler models.

The issue revolves around the movement of the handlebars which inputs could damage the wiring harness over time due to a misrouted harness.

The wiring harness may make contact with the lower lug on the main frame headstock.

Constant steering inputs may cause the harness to rub the lug, resulting in wear and potential damage to the wiring over time. The engine may end up stalling unexpectedly.

The official Australian Competition and Consumer Commission notice has not yet been released but Triumph Australia has attempted to get in touch with owners to alert them to the issue.

Since some owners may have sold their bikes privately, we have published this recall notice to advise those new owners.

The issues affects 2019 and 2020 Street Twin and Scrambler models.

Owners are asked to book non their bike wth a Triumph dealer to have a VIN plate protector installed that will reroute the harness.

They will also inspect the harness and replace it if necessary, free of charge.

The “Bonneville” range has been the subject of several embarrassing recalls since they were introduced in 2016:

Indian issues 2nd Scout recall on brakes

Indian Motorcycle has issued a global recall on 2019 Scout and Scout Bobber motorcycles for a possible problem with the brakes.

The brake fluid on some bike might not have been filled to the manufacturer’s quality standards which could allow an air bubble which would affect braking efficiency.

This is a follow-up to the 2018 recall for a brake issue on the Scout which advised owners to do an “urgent pre-ride inspection” to ensure the brakes were working properly.

An official Australian Competition and Consumer Commission notice has not yet been released, but Indian Motorcycle Australia says owners have been contacted.

We publish all recall notices in case ownership changes hands and the distributor is not notified.

Inspect brakes

Since the official notice has not been released, we suggest riders check their brakes before riding and arrange an inspection.

The original notice advised riders to do the following urgent pre-ride inspection before riding the bike straight to the dealership:

  • Press down on the rear brake pedal. It should move freely and smoothly. The pedal should feel firm and continue to feel firm until released.
  • Release the pedal. It should return to its rest position quickly when released.
  • Repeat Pre-Ride Inspection for the front brake lever. Ensure the lever feels firm and that it returns to rest position quickly when released.

“If either the front or rear brake fails to perform as stated or travels too far before beginning to engage the brake, please contact your Indian Motorcycle dealer directly,” the 2018 notice said.

It’s always a good idea to do this sort of inspection with any bike as part of your usual pre-ride check.

It is believed the new notice invites riders to make an appointment at their Indian dealership for the brake fluid to be flushed and replaced, free of charge.

The manufacturer confirmed that no components of the brake system needed to be replaced.

We will update this article with the official notice if/when it is released along with the VINs of affected vehicles.

Safety recall on Aprilia Tuono and RSV4

Aprilia Australia has issued a safety recall notice for a brake issue on 2017-2020 RSV4 and Tuono 1100 motorcycles.

The official safety recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the front brake pad friction material “could potentially separate from the back plate, resulting in reduced braking performance”.

“Reduced brake performance may result in a dangerous fall or collision, causing serious injury or death to the rider or other road users,” the notice says.

Owners should contact their authorised Aprilia dealer to book a brake pad inspection and, if potentially faulty brake pads are found, they will be replaced free of charge.

For more information, owners should contact their nearest authorised Aprilia dealer or email [email protected]

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) of the 451 affected bikes are listed at the end of this article.

Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a safety recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle recalls as a service to all riders.

In Australia, recall notices are issued by the manufacturer and the Department of Infrastructure through a voluntary industry code under the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.

Bell helmet recalled for missing label

The Bell MX-9 Adventure DLX helmet has been recalled simply because the European certification label is missing from the chin strap.

Under Australia rules, helmets must have an ECE22.05 label on the inside of the helmet.

You can actually remove the compliance sticker from the outside of the helmet, but it must still have a compliance label stitched into the inside of the helmet.

However, the label is missing from the Bell MX-9 Adventure DLX helmet, but only those fitted with the Transition Lens and sold between 19 May 2019 and 29 June 2020.

The official notice from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has not yet been listed on their website.

However, TeamMoto and Motorcycle Accessories Supermarket have already alerted customers on their email data bases to return the helmet for a full refund or a replacement/swap using the original purchase price as credit.

Customers are warned not to dispose of the helmet.

Helmet recalls

While there are dozens of motorcycle recalls each year, helmet recalls are rare.

The last was an O’Neal helmet last year for a failed Fidlock clasp.

We have to go back to 2013 for the previous recall when four cheap Chinese helmets were recalled.

The only other helmet recall by the ACCC was all the way back in 1978.

Most recalls are issued voluntarily and posted online by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

Even though motorcycle, helmet and accessory manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the product may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle-related recalls as a service to all riders.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike, helmet or motorcycle product that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.

Fire risk forces Kawasaki ZX-10 recall

A fire risk has forced Kawasaki Australia to recalled 54 Ninja ZX-10R, RR and R SE models over an engine management issue.

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says:

The Engine Control Unit (ECU) programming may cause the engine to after fire when the Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS) function is used under heavy engine load (high rpm and throttle opening over 50%). This may cause the air suction valves to become deformed and/or broken. Continued use of the motorcycle with this condition may also damage surrounding parts. If this occurs, there is an increased risk of fire or accident and injury to the rider or other road users.

Owners will be advised by mail to contact an authorised Kawasaki Dealership to arrange a time to have a modification completed free of charge.

Click here for your nearest authorised Kawasaki dealer.

A list of the vehicle identification numbers of all 2019/20 models affected by the fire risk is included at the end of this article.

Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle recalls as a service to all riders.

In Australia, recall notices are issued by the manufacturer and the Department of Infrastructure through a voluntary industry code under the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
