Dear BRP Customer,
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. BRP has decided that a defect related to motor vehicle safety exists in the following vehicles. As a result, BRP is conducting a safety recall.
Our records show that you own a potentially affected vehicle.
What is the potential problem?
The position light and flasher electrical harness in the front fenders may be loose and rub on the tires. Over time, this could lead to a short circuit causing an engine stall while driving without the ability to restart the vehicle. If this happens, the Vehicle Stability System (VSS), which includes the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), will not be available. This situation may increase the risk of a crash.
Which models are involved?

What should you do?
Contact immediately your authorized BRP Can-Am dealer and schedule an appointment to have the safety recall performed on your vehicle.
The repair is to secure the harness with proper routing in the front fenders. The procedure should take less than an hour.
BRP will repair your vehicle at no cost.
