I just thought I'd start a post where we can get some specifics on transmission problems. If you have had transmission problems and your dealer has recognized the problem and fixed it please post it here.
Post the following:
2. How it was fixed
3. Name of the Dealership
4. Address of the Dealership
5. Phone number of the Dealership
6. Service Manager name if you have it.
With this info if anyone else has a problem similar to anything that is posted here we can have our Service Manger call the dealership that found and fixed that problem. This should help us all out as we know what normally happens. The service manager says "that's the first I've ever heard of that." If we start seeing problems in other areas I will start another post like this one.
PS even if it wasn't fixed please post it here because the more info we can collect in one place the more ammo we have with Suzuki in the event there needs to be a recall.
HERE IS WHAT WE HAVE SO FAR

I was able to stop by the dealer and actually see what went wrong with the transmission. The 5th drive gear was seized on the countershaft. The seizure looks to be cause by a lack of lubrication or heat build up. If you look at the schematics of the transmission breakdown, you will notice that the 5th drive gear does not have a bushing. Only a light film of oil cushions the mating surfaces of the countershaft and actual gear.
AFter repairs and during first day of riding wining came back.
