Motorcycle Recall - Can-Am

NHTSA Campaign ID:  11V081000
Component:  Power Train: Manual Transmission: Column Shift Assembly
Manufacturer:  Bombardier Recreational Products
Recall Date: 02/07/2011
Potential Number of Units Affected: 160
Defect Summary:
BRP is recalling certain model year 2011 Spyder RT SM5 Roadsters. While downshifting, it may be possible to inadvertently engage reverse without depressing the reverse button, due to a defective reverse actuator cable. If this happens while vehicle is moving forward, the rear wheel could lock and the engine could stall.
Consequence Summary:
If this happens while vehicle is stopped or moving forward, vehicle could back up. This condition may increase the risk of a crash possibly resulting in injury or death.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will validate proper operation of the reverse actuator and if defective, the reverse actuator assembly will be replaced free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before February 11, 2011. Owners may contact BRP at 1-888-638-5397.
