Hello,

Yes some of the burgmans have a contact issue in the switch drum. One of the contacts is a bit smaller and doesnt allow for good contact unless the ignition switch is switched fully on. Sometimes the switch can be on and not fully into its position. This causes an overheat on the contact and eventually fails. The typical motions with this is you should contact your closest suzuki dealership, have your VIN number from the bike ready. And they can look up your vehichle up and verify that your bike will still fall under the recall. If so you just set up the appointment with them and suzuki pays for the repairs.
