Suzuki 32800-41F11 regulator-rectifier recallThe Suzuki regulator/rectifier part numbers involved in this recall are 32800-41F11, 32800-15H10, 32800-05H11, 32800-41G10, 32800-15H00, 32800-18H00, 32800-05G10, 32800-10G10, 32800-05H20, OR 32800-06G01.

Some of these regulator/rectifier assemblies have poor adhesion between the heatsink and the circuit board.  The improper cooling of the assembly may result in the battery becoming weak and the motorcycle may stall.
