Washington D.C.—American Suzuki Motor Corporation and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has voluntarily recalled about 1,350 Suzuki QuadSport ATVs for crash risks. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 15, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the regulator/rectifier circuit board can fail and cause the engine to stall during riding due to an insufficient battery charge, which increases the risk of a crash.

“This recall affects all 2009 LT-Z400 and LT-Z400Z QuadSport ATVs. The words ‘QuadSport’ and the model number are written on the front left fender of the ATV,” reported the CPSC press release.

Consumers are advised to contact a local Suzuki ATV dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair. All known consumers with recalled ATVs are being sent a notice directly from Suzuki.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Suzuki at (800) 444-5077 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.suzukicycles.com.
