SE5 Clutch Sticking Engaged

Dear Can-AmTM MY2010 Spyder Roadster Owner,


BRP Australia Pty Ltd (“BRP“) has decided that a defect exists on certain Can-Am Spyder Roadster

RS SE5 and RT SE5 models and is conducting a voluntary safety recall.


What is the potential problem?

When bringing a vehicle equipped with the SE5 semi-automatic transmission to a full stop, the clutch may remain engaged stalling the engine. Once the engine is stalled, it could be impossible to re-start and the rear wheel could be blocked. If this happens, it may be impracticable to push the vehicle off the roadway increasing the risk of a crash possibly resulting in injury or death.


What should you do?

Call an authorized BRP Can-Am Spyder Roadster dealer and make an appointment to have your vehicle repaired. We will update the centrifugal clutch assembly with new components. The dealer will perform this work at no charge to you. What to do if you feel this notice is an error?

This notice was mailed to you according to the most current information we have available. If you no longer own this vehicle or some information in this notice is incorrect, please contact BRP at your earliest convenience.

If you have questions, need assistance, or to find the nearest authorized BRP Can-Am Spyder
