Suzuki recalls GSX-R1000 motorcycles due to loose interlock bolts

American Suzuki Motor is recalling almost 5,000 of its CSX-R1000 motorcycles, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2009-2011 model years of the Suzuki sport bike have loose bolts in its side stand interlock switch. Sudden and unexpected failure of the switch will cause cause the engine to stop running and increase the risk of a collision.

NHTSA says the company will contact those affected by the recall of Suzuki GSX-R1000 motorcycles. Mechanics at local dealerships will replace the loose side stand interlock bolts for free under Suzuki’s safety recall campaign number 2A29.

In May, NHTSA conducted its Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, an annual program to remind car drivers to share the road with two-wheeled counterparts. And Consumer Reports experts remind bike drivers and riders of the importance of motorcycle safety helmets in unexpected collisions.
