Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) has recalled 5,042 of its 2013 Can-Am Spyder RT and ST series motorcycles due to brake-fluid issues.

BRP says the tandem brake master cylinder manifold inlet may melt allowing the brake fluid to leak out. If this occurs, brake fluid may leak not a heat source, increasing the risk of a fire.

BRP will notify owners and dealers will install heat shields and a heat deflector, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early September 2013. Owners may contact BRP at 1-888-638-5397.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
