The Suzuki GW250 is getting recalled, due to water being able to get into the wiring harness at the rear brake light switch connectors, which could possibly corrode the brake light switch.
The issue only affects certain 2013, 2015, and 2017 model year machines – for a total of 1,890 units in the recall.
If corrosion occurs to the wiring harness, it could cause the motorcycle to short, resulting in the headlight, tail light, and brake lights failing to illuminate.
To correct the issue, Suzuki will notify affected GW250 owners, and Suzuki dealers will install an improved brake light switch assembly, and install a water protection cover – as necessary, and free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 23, 2016.
