Bandit safety recall
Here in Canada, I received a recall notice for my 09 Bandit 1250. I have the touring model (same as any other Bandit, but comes with hard luggage)
It seems the bike is a hazard to the rider and other road users as the side reflectors on the rear end of the bike are obscured by the side cases. I am all about safety, so I took my bike to the dealer to have the situation corrected.
After an hour at the dealer, here is Suzuki's fix. They also relocated the existing reflectors from the licence plate bracket to a location just below the rear part of the seat to be visible when the cases are off. (in my case, never)
After I got home, I ripped the newly installed reflectors off and tossed them.
I am wondering if there was a similar recall elsewhere in the world or if this is just a Transport Canada recall.
