Coast-to-Coast Accessory Passenger Seat Does Not Activate Pillion Switch

BRP recalls Can-Am® Spyder Accessory Passenger Seat – model Coast-to-Coast for Spyder F3 series

Accessory passenger seat, model Coast to Coast, for Spyder F3 series


The pillion switch is not activated when a passenger is on the seat. This situation may result in a loss of control and possibly cause injuries or even death.


What should the customer do?

  1. Remove the seat and locate the part number under the seat. The part recalled is 708001833.
  2. Check to see if the updated stud was installed (see picture). If you do not see this additional stud, your seat is included in the recall.
  3. If the seat is included in the recall, visit an authorized Can-Am Spyder dealership to have the seat modified at no charge.
  4. In the meantime, if you want to continue riding with a passenger, use the production passenger seat rather than the Coast-to-Coast passenger seat.
