Transport Canada - latest motorcycle recalls

Bombardier Recreational Products is recalling a total of 2,677 CAN-AM Spyder's from the 2008, and 2009 model years.

Transport Canada Recall # 2009136
Recall Date: 2009/05/11
System: Steering
Units Affected: 2,677
Category: 3 Wheel Motorcycle

Recall Details: On certain vehicles, greater than expected force may need to be exerted in order to initiate turning of the steering handlebar from center position while underway. Once handlebar turning is initiated, however, the resistance reduces and steering mechanism movement responds to operator inputs normally. This higher than expected initial steering input force may cause the operator to overshoot a steering correction or turn, causing an unexpected deviation from the intended vehicle path. This could result in a vehicle crash causing property damage, personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the dynamic power steering (DPS) system.
