BRP is recalling 9,353 units of the 2022 Can-Am Ryker because the handlebars on the three-wheeled vehicle might break during operation.
If you will pardon the pun, the issue stems from the handlebar stem bolts used to connect the handlebars to the front-end of the motorcycle, as these bolts might not have sufficient thread length to properly secure the handlebars.
According to recall documents, the handlebar stem bolt does not have a sufficient thread length to account for all the tolerances needed for the assembly.
The documents also mention that that debris may be present in the steering columns which could interfere with a proper assembly. This assembly is performed by dealers during the pre-delivery preparation.
Can-Am Ryker owners are advised to not ride their motorcycle until the remedy is complete.
To remedy the issue, Can-Am dealers will clean the threads of the steering column and install a new steering stem bolt, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 27, 2022.
Concerned Ryker owners may contact BRP customer service at 1-888-272-9222. BRP’s number for this recall is 2022-16. As always, the NHTSA is available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
