    this is a known issue on the 2018's. BRP knows about it and is replacing them as they occur. My dealer in Atlantic, IA has already ordered the replacement paddle shifter for my Spyder - just haven't taken the time to get it done? Mine seems to shift OK, but a bit of struggle once in a while when shifting to reverse...

    Apparently I have to bring mine in for service befoe they will order the part. BRP said my VIN is showing it wasnít part of the recall, even though I have an 2018 RTL. So I have to bring it in for dealer to confirm the problem, then wait for part to be delivered to dealer & installed. Since this is a known problem youíd think all 2018ís were covered. Frustrating.
    Thanks everyone.

    Can someone message me the bulletin, my 2018 RTL stopped downshifting with the paddle button yesterday,
    need to send this to the dealer involved. So parts can be ordered ASAP.
    Thanks all

    You can start by calling BRP so they can search your VIN. I can’t manually downshift, no N or R but according to BRP, my VIN isn’t listed for the Warranty Bulletin. So I had to drop it off last Monday for dealer to “diagnose “.... hope you don’t have the same problem, they wouldn’t order the part till I dropped it off. Haven’t heard anything yet, gonna call them soon. Got 2 charity rides this weekend. Missed last weekends, hoping not to miss this weekends. Best of luck!
