What are the defects?

Suzuki Motor Corporation have advised that corrosion may start between the brake piston and return spring (located inside the piston). Moisture may be absorbed by the brake fluid after long-term use of the motorcycles. If corrosion is present, it may lead to the brake fluid becoming more acidic and may generate a gas by reacting with the brake piston.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, this could affect the front brake lever, causing it to develop a “spongy” feeling, which may result in reduced brake performance. Reduced braking performance may pose a hazard to the motorcyclist and other road users.
