DETROIT (AP) - Suzuki is recalling 210,228 motorcycles in the U.S. because the front brakes might not work properly.
The recall involves GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 motorcycles from the 2004 through 2013 model years and GSX-R1000 motorcycles from the 2005 through 2013 model years.
Suzuki says there have been no injuries related to the defect.
The company says older brake fluid and corrosion of the brake piston inside the front brake master cylinder can form a gas that reduces fluid pressure transmission to the front brake. That can reduce braking power and increase the risk of a crash.
Suzuki Motor of America Inc. will notify owners starting next month. Dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder for free.
