Bombardier Recalling Three-Wheel Motorcycles for Fuel Leaks

Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. is recalling certain Can-Am Spyder GS, RS and RT vehicles from the 2008 to 2012 model years because of a problem that could result in fuel leaks and possible fires.

Some of the three-wheeled, motorcycle-like vehicles have fuel caps that may not fit properly and as a result do not seal the fuel tank. If the fuel cap does not seal properly, it may allow fuel vapor to escape. The vapor could ignite under certain conditions. In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, BRP said the recall affects 33,700 vehicles.

BRP, a maker of snowmobiles, personal watercraft and four-wheel all-terrain vehicles developed the Spyder as an alternative to traditional motorcycles. Riding one feels like a mix of motorcycling and snowmobiling.

Under the recall BRP will notify owners and send them replacement fuel caps free of charge. The recall is expected to begin next month. Customers may contact BRP at 888-638-5397.
