My new 250 GTR is going to be on the road today.
« on: December 04, 2017, 02:40:31 AM »

Hi guys,

My final batch for 2017 250GTR will be on the road end of today or tomorrow. I have been reading up on rectifier, starter relay and starter issues. Being an ongoing model for many years, i wondered if these issues would have been ironed out somehow by now.

My wondering mind:-
1. Do current models still have these worrying issues?
2. What causes rectifier to fail prematurely?
3. What causes starter relay to fail prematurely?
4. Are there any aftermarket improved parts for these?

I hope this new bike of mine will keep me happy for many years to come till my next upgrade.

I wouldn't worry about these issues for at least 2 years or what ever the warranty is.

1) rectifier's are problems across the board on most bikes. Suzuki has multiple years of them on recall
2-3) I would say poor quality of material used. Starter solenoid usually fails do to corrosion internally and locks the internals in place(failure)
4) you can get a MOSFIT(sp?)  rectifier.  do a search on the board.

I would say you have a couple of years of worry free driving ahead of you with a 2017.
