Can-Am Spyder Recalls
BRP is recalling 160 Can-Am Spyder RT SM5 Roadsters built in 2011 due to power train issues.
BRP says while downshifting the Can-Am Spyder RT SM5 Roadster, it may be possible to inadvertently engage reverse without depressing the reverse button due to a defective reverse actuator cable.
If this happens while the effected Can Am Spyder Roadsters are moving forward, the rear wheel could lock up and the engine may stall. A vehicle stall without warning, or an unexpected movement into reverse, may increase the risk of a crash, possibly resulting in injury or death.
Dealers will validate proper operation of the reverse actuator and if defective, the actuator assembly will be replaced free of charge.
Owners may contact BRP at 1-888-638-5397.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safecar.gov.
