CLARIFICATION ON TRANSPORT CANADA'S SAFETY RECALL

August 2013

Date: August 30, 2013

SpyderTeam

Dear Can-Am Spyder roadster owner,

As some of you might already know today Transport Canada published a recall notification from BRP on all 2013 Can-Am® Spyder® RT and ST series roadsters.

BRP has proposed a solution to the issue raised by the recall; this recall notification has been approved for affected vehicles within Canada by Transport Canada.  Agencies in other countries are also reviewing the solution for their own jurisdictions, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the United States.

All of the details on the issue, the recall and the solution are being communicated to BRP's Canadian dealers as well as to all Canadian owners of a vehicle that is affected by Transport Canada's. As soon as we have the green light from agencies in other countries, we will release the same information to the dealer network and owners of affected vehicles within those countries, including NHTSA in the United States.

Following are some additional details regarding the recall:

What issue does this recall address?

Under some riding conditions, the tandem master cylinder manifold inlet may melt and cause brake fluid to drip onto a heat source, which may lead to a vehicle fire. 

How will the recall address this issue?

To correct this condition, dealers will install BRP-tested, specially-designed heat shields and heat deflector to reduce the heat in the general area of the tandem master cylinder manifold inlet and prevent it from melting. 

Should I continue to ride my 2013 Can-Am Spyder RT or ST until the safety recall is performed on my vehicle?

As you are now aware of the details of this safety recall, give yourself enough time to react and contact your dealer at your earliest convenience. 

Should I contact my Can-Am Spyder dealer for full details of this recall?

In Canada, our dealer network is being fully briefed on this safety recall. In other countries, we cannot release full details to our dealer network until the regulatory procedures with their respective agencies are completed. As soon as BRP is able to do so, our dealer networks in those countries will be fully briefed on this safety recall. 

In the meantime, if you have more questions, in Canada, consumers can contact their BRP authorized dealer. In the U.S., you may contact BRP directly by calling us at 1-888-638-5397 (U.S. & Canada only) from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM Eastern time Monday to Thursday, and 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM Eastern time Friday. For other countries, please contact BRP at:  

We apologize for any inconvenience and we will keep you informed.
