Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) is recalling 111 Coast to Coast accessory passenger seats sold for use on Can-Am Spyder F3-series motorcycles.

When a passenger is sitting on the accessory seat, the seat may not activate a switch that changes the vehicle stability system to compensate for a passenger being on board.

If the vehicle stability system is not altered, the operator may lose control of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

BRP has notified owners, and dealers will modify the seat to correct the issue free of charge.

The recall began on July 22, 2016.

Owners with questions may contact BRP Customer Service at (888) 272-9222.
