Problem: Motion Pro is recalling 10,000 aftermarket brake levers, model no. 14-0415, sold for use on certain model year 1999-2008 Suzuki motorcycles. The lobe height on some of these levers are smaller and do not properly engage the stop lamp switch which will not deactivate when the driver releases the brake lever. If this occurs, the stop lamp will remain on which could possibly result in a crash.

This recall only pertains to aftermarket Motion Pro brake levers and has no relation to any original equipment installed on Suzuki motorcycles.

Corrective Action: Motion Pro will notify owners and provide a free remedy. The recall is expected to begin during August 2008. Owners may contact Motion Pro at 650-594-9600.
