BRP is recalling all 5,165 units of its 2013 Can-Am Spyder RT “motorcycles” for problems with the engine compartment temperature when idling or in warmer temperatures.

Apparently the engine compartment on the 2013 Can-Am Spyder RT can retain an excess of heat, which in turn could burn the rider or cause the trike to catch fire.

At this time, BRP doesn’t have a remedy for this recall, but the company will send an interim notification to owners this month (February 2015), and will also mail a second notice when a remedy becomes available.

Concerned 2013 Can-Am Spyder RT owners may contact BRP customer service at 1-888-272-9222; and as always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and
