I WAS OUT FOR A RIDE AND NOTICED THE HEAT ON MY THIGH AND LEG I REPORTED IT TO THE DEALER, AND THEY SAID IT WAS A RECALL ISSUE AND THEY APPLIED A THIN STRIP OF HEAT TAPE UNDER GLOVE BOX. SO ON JUNE 10TH I NOTICED IT WAS GETTING EVEN HOTTER SO I GOT A THERMOSTAT AND PUT IN GLOVE BOX AND RODE OVER TO THE DEALER, A 20 MINUTE RIDE, THE THERMOSTAT REGISTERED 155 THIS AREA WAS SO HOT IT MELTED MY SEAT AND BURN MY THIGH. SO ON JUNE 23RD I LEFT IT AT DEALERS AND BRP INFORMED THEM TO APPLY MORE HEAT TAPE AND REPLACE THE SEAT,WHICH WAS DONE. I PICKED IT UP ON JULY 9 THE AND RODE IT HOME AND GOT BURNED AND IT REGISTERED 150 AFTER A 20 MINUTE RIDE AND THE OUTSIDE TEMP WAS MID 70'S.

ENGINE

6/27/2014 - CLINTON, MD
I ROAD MY RT FROM MARYLAND TO MYRTLE BEACH SC. ON THE WAY THERE THE BIKE WAS HEATING UP ON THE RIGHT SIDE BURNING MY PASSENGER AND MY LEG. ONCE I GOT THERE I TOOK THE BIKE TO A BRP DEALERSHIP TO GET AN OIL CHANGE AND HAD TO PAY $335. I ASKED THEM TO DO A CHECK UP BECAUSE MY BREAKS WERE SQEAKING AND THERE WAS HOT AIR COMING FROM THE RIGHT SIDE AND THAT THE CONTROLS FOR THE PASSENGER DO NOT WORK . WHEN I WENT TO PICK MY BIKE UP THEY TOLD ME I HAD SEVERAL RECALLS ON MY BIKE, AND THE SWITCH WAS BAD. I SAID I JUST GOT IT MAY 17, 2014 AND THEY SAID NONE OF THE RECALLS WERE DONE. THE DEALERSHIP DID NOT TELL ME THERE WERE RECALLS ON THE RT. I THINK THEY SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE TO TELL CUSTOMERS THAT THERE ARE RECALLS. I DID NOT RECEIVE AND RECALL NOTIFICATION IN THE MAIL EITHER. I DID CONTACT A BRP DEALERSHIP AND THEY TOLD ME THEY WILL HAVE TO KEEP MY BIKE FOR 1 - 2 WEEKS TO FIND OUT WHAT THE RECALLS ARE. E ARE 25 COMPLAINTS AND NO INVESTIGATIONS I THINK NHTSA NEED TO DO SOME INVESTIGATIONS BEFORE SOMEONE GETS BADLY INJURED. EVERYTHING I HAVE READ HAD BASICALLY HAPPENED TO ME TOO. PLEASE HELP US TO GET THIS PROBLEM SOLVED.

5/24/2014 - BATON ROUGE, LA
HOT AIR FROM THE RADIATOR BLOWING ON THE RIGHT LEG REACHES 140 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AT THE ANKLE. THE TEMPERATURE WAS MONITORED USING A DIGITAL THERMOMETER WITH A REMOTE READOUT. THIS TEMPERATURE READING WAS REPEATED ON SUBSEQUENT TESTS. THE HEAT MAKES THE BIKE VIRTUALLY UNRIDEABLE DURING THE SUMMER WITHOUT TAKING THE RISK OF BURNS TO THE RIGHT LEG. THE MANUFACTURER HAS REFUSED TO TALK WITH ME ABOUT THIS ISSUE.
