Suzuki recalls more than 68K motorcycles over stalling risk

DETROIT (AP) — Suzuki is recalling more than 68,000 motorcycles in the U.S. because the battery charging system can fail and cause the bikes to stall.

The recall affects 15 models from the 2008 to 2012 model years.

The company says in documents filed with U.S. safety regulators that the problem was traced to a circuit board in the charging system. One customer filed a complaint in the U.S., but more than 200 complaints were received from other countries.

Dealers will replace the charging system regulator-rectifier to fix the problem. Suzuki will notify owners and begin the recall repairs in early March at no cost to owners.
