I used to work at a Suzuki dealer, not an issue. All they need is the VIN to type into suzuki connect.

It was a commonly known issue for gixxers to develop a spongy front brake over time. Not a total loss by any means, but if you cracked the little bleeder on the master you'd get a bit of air then it would be fine again for a while. The air was coming from somewhere, and now we have the answer.

From what I read it was from them letting moisture in. I ended up getting a brembo master and calipers from an r1. Problem solved

That was my first thought too. Nissin makes them, so wouldn't all Nissin M/C's be messed up? And the answer is no, because Suzuki specs their M/C's and Nissin produces them. So it's only for the M/C's that Nissin produced for Suzuki. It's a problem with the way Suzuki wanted them, mounted them, etc.

I really think it's the resi or the line they use that let's moisture in. Mine gave me problems until I switched resis

Awesome, I haven't had any problems with my brakes going soft on my 05 600 but the fluid in it has maybe 3k miles on it as I had to put brake lines on the bike when I bought it but shit; why pass up a free brand new brake master cylinder that the shop puts on for free?
