Bombardier Recreational Prodcut (BRP) is recalling just over one-hundred 2010 Can-Am Spyder Roadster RT’s for a faulty connection in the bike’s electrical harness. This recall affects only SM5 and SE5 motorcycles made between October 13, 2009 and October 30, 2009.
The faulty connection, which can be found between the key switch harness and ignition switch harness, may be routed to tight, and in some instances, cause the connector to unplug. In such an event, the vehicle would stall without warning, and potentially cause a crash.
BRP will notify affected owners, and authorized dealers will inspect the connectors in question. If they are found to be routed to tight, dealers will re-route them free of charge.
This recall is already underway, and concerned owners can contact BRP at 1-888-638-5397 or 1-819-566-3366. As always, owners can also contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 or go to safecar.gov.
