Can-Am® Ryker - Possible Front Wheel Loss
Dear Can-Am On-Road owner,
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. This is to inform you that your vehicle may contain a defect that could affect the safety of a person. BRP is conducting a safety recall on some 2020 Can-Am Ryker.
Our records show that you own a potentially affected vehicle.
What is the potential problem?
The front wheels assembly may not have been performed properly (torque application and installation of the red locking clip). In some situations, this could result in a wheel loss, increasing the risk of a crash.
Which models are involved?
Some specific serial numbers of model year 2020 Can-Am Ryker.
What will BRP do?
BRP will repair your vehicle free of charge. The corrective action involves an inspection of the torque on the front wheel nuts and reinstallation of the red locking clips. After the repair, your dealer will give you a copy of the Mandatory Certification Form. This service should take less than one hour.
What should you do?
Contact your authorized BRP Can-Am On-Road dealer and schedule an appointment to have the safety recall performed on your vehicle.
How to determine if you can continue to ride your vehicle?
The presence of a well installed red locking clip prevents a nut from unscrewing and therefore the vehicle can be driven to the dealership to be serviced.
A properly installed red locking clip is sitting well into the groove all around the nut. If you see an installation like the picture below - red locking clip NOT installed properly, contact your dealer to organise transportation of your vehicle to the dealership.
