2016 Can-Am Spyder F3 Coast to Coast Seat Recall Alert

Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. (BRP) is recalling certain Coast to Coast accessory passenger seats, manufactured November 18, 2015, to April 4, 2016, and sold for use on Can-Am Spyder F3-series motorcycles. When a passenger is sitting on the accessory seat, the seat may not activate a switch that changes the vehicle stability system to compensate for a passenger being on board.

CONSEQUENCE:

If the vehicle stability system is not alerted, the operator may lose control of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:

BRP has notified owners, and dealers will modify the seat to correct the issue, free of charge. The recall began July 22, 2016. Owners may contact BRP customer service at 1-888-272-9222.

NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
