Suzuki Motor Corporation
Models: Suzuki GSX-R750W Year: 1998
Suzuki TL1000RW Year: 1998
Number Involved: 6,087
Dates of Manufacture: September 1997 - April 1998
Defect: The hose connecting the fuel pump to the fuel filter on these motorcycles can come off, causing a leak of fuel pressure to the fuel injection systems. This can prevent the motorcycle from starting or can cause the engine to stall. Engine stalling while riding can reduce the driver's ability to control the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the original rubber fuel hose with a combination metal and rubber fuel hose set to eliminate the possibility of a fuel hose disconnecting from the fuel pump. Owner notification began Nov. 16, 1998. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Suzuki at 1-800-255-2550.
