      Your build date is imprinted on the VIN plate. VIN plates for the 98+ models is located next to the steering stem on the frame.

        Well I checked. I AM affected by this.... so I guess I would need to get to the local Suzuki dealer and have it switched out. (the passenger grab handle)

        Question: Will it come painted the factory color....or will it be black?

        How should I go about this...call my local Suzuki dealer and tell them the above recall?

          Print out the recall data, and call your dealer. If the dealer plays stupid, call Suzuki America at 1-800-255-2550 and mention the recall code & getting it straightened out. If you're not the first owner of the bike (i.e. - you're not 100% sure of the service history), you may find that they already replaced the original rear rail previously -- in which case they'll tell you as much (based on your VIN). Either way, the dealer simply does the install/replacement -- Suzuki America actually picks up the bill for both labor and parts. And, yes, you should be given a color-matched rear handle, provided your bike is still the original color (they'll base the color on the VIN info); if your bike has been repainted a different color, the rear handle won't color match. You may also find that the rear handle, even if the same color, may look different simply because your bike has undergone years of solar exposure, etc., while the grab rail is still factory-fresh (resulting in a slight color difference due to fading of the bike).

          Cheers

                Wow. Great info on the TSB and Suzuki America number and all. Thanks very much.

                Bike is all factory. The only mods are a Yoshi RS-3 exhaust, and Metzler Mez 4's, and some LED lighting effects.
                Paint is as it came from the factory.
                So aside from the sun exposure, I am happy to know that the handle (if it wasn't already replaced) will be factory color-matched and anew.

                  Where do we get this Motorcycle recall/tsb info?

                  I looked yesterday on the NHTSA site and only found info on automobiles.

                  Since someone has the db....can you lookup a 2002 Kat 600?

                      The vehicle ("Car") database has the motorcycle entries as well. No recalls on the '02 Kats, or it would have been listed at the start of this thread. Do a drill-down: year, manufacturer, vehicle type. If the vehicle type isn't listed (or the manufacturer isn't listed) for a specific year, then there are no recalls for that vehicle (or manufacturer) for that year.
                      You can also look up the complaints for the bike the same way.

                      Cheers
