Be aware that this motorcycle recall list is for the United States for the last 30 days, there is no way I could cover the entire world. But in the world of global manufacturing, if a motorcycle is being recalled in one country there is a good chance it is under recall in others.

Also, this should not be considered a definitive list, check for yourself if you have any questions.

If you are US based use the NHTSA website Enter your VIN number to see if your motorcycle is affected by the recall.

If you are based outside the USA, use the appropriate website to locate recalls that may impact you.

Ride On, Ride Safe


In an earlier post I made mention of the fact that more than a few Spyder owners have had their bikes catch fire. Bombardier, the manufacture, has dealt with that issue in the past but are now doing it again.

Bombardier has voluntarily reported to the US Government that all the 5165 Spyders WORLDWIDE built in 2013 have an issue where “Under very hot ambient conditions and low speed riding, the temperature in the engine compartment may rise and thereby increase the risk of a skin burn or a vehicle fire”.

Bombardier has sent owners of the RT letters explaining the problem and informing them that can continue to ride but to be cautious when temps exceed 30C/85F. In particular owners should:

“Avoid idling or slow traffic riding for a long period of time.”

“Avoid parking in an enclosed area immediately after your ride, let your vehicle cool down first.”

“Avoid prolonged direct contact with body panels; wear appropriate riding gear as stated in the Operator’s Guide.”

If you own a 2013 Can-AM Spyder RT you can contact Bombardier at -888-272-9222 or go to and enter your VIN number (if you are in the US that is).

You may also what to keep a fire extinguisher handy…just kidding!  🙂
