Can-Am Ryker

Wheel May Drop Off Can-Am Ryker

A Serious Issue

BRP Australia has issued a recall for their entry-level Can-Am Ryker three-wheeler roadster because a front wheel may drop off.

Riders have been advised to stop riding their Ryker, according to the official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

The issue only affects 30 of this year’s models sold between March 27 and September 26.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) of affected vehicles are listed at the end of this article.

The notice says the front wheels assembly may not have been installed properly, referring to the amount of torque applied to the installation of a red locking clip (pictured below).

“This could result in a wheel loss, reducing the vehicles handling and control,” the notice quaintly asserts. “This increases the risk of an accident, potentially leading to serious injury or death of the rider or other road users.

“Do not ride your vehicle until it has been inspected and repaired.”

BRP will contact owners by mail and arrange to repair involved vehicles, free of charge.

The company has only issued three other recalls in Australia for their Spyders, twice for brake defects and once for the vehicle bursting into flames.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

It’s important to know your legal rights on recalls. Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
