Clutch Shudder on Suzuki m109r motorcycles

This petition was drawn up to address the issue of clutch shudder design flaw in some or all Suzuki Boulevard m109r model motorcycles. This clutch shudder problem seems to be widespread with all year models and mileage counts alike. It happens on low mileage bikes, it happens on high mileage bikes, it happens when cold staring, it happens with different grades of oil. It is very random and we strongly feel this problem should be addressed in a recall manner. We want our m109r's fix under a recall.

  • John Farar My clutch shutters so bad when I first start off that it has gotten to the point that I can't ride it. It also has a hard shift into second gear and it is very difficult to shift without grinding the gears. My bike only has 8000 miles on it and it isn't rideable.

  • Anonymous i have a hard shift on my second gear and this is so common on m109r's. i thought its just the oil so used synthetic mobil every 3k millage and change the gear oil every 4k but it didn't work. so a recall would be good.

  • Anonymous 2008 M109R has had the shudder problem from about 5000 miles onward. Now at 30K and still happens. I've found that the shudder only happens when cold so the people who say it's an oil issue I tend to believe. I'm going to start using synthetic oil my next change and see if that fixes things. But I will disassemble the clutch to see if anything needs replacing, also read to replace the wave washer. I noticed Suzuki superseded the clutch plate washer as well was: 21472-48G00 is: 21472-48G10.
