Our records show that you own a potentially affected vehicle.

What will BRP do?

BRP is issuing revised maintenance schedules information. The changes are: 

(1) SEVERE DUTY - precision that this duty includes Commercial/Work & Rental use.

(2) Slide shoes in the driven pulley need to be REPLACED: 

  • Every 3000 km (1900 mi) (Schedule A) if SEVERE DUTY or DEEP MUD/WATER USE

  • Every 6000 km (3700 mi) (Schedule B) if REGULAR DUTY

What should YOU do?

We are providing you with a Maintenance Schedule Booklet containing the revised maintenance schedules, to be kept with the Operator’s Guide. This booklet is sent with this letter. It replaces the maintenance schedule information in your Operator’s Guide.
