    Thanks for posting this I have been wondering where those tie strips were that others have been talking about.

    Does anybody know if they have or anyone has seen a 2020 Can Am Spyder RTL Workshop Service Repair Manual yet?

    This is pretty minor, glad they did not delay production and are aware and standing behind there work Also big thank you to those that pointed this out, at first I thought they were being to picky. So please accept my apology.

    Hi Jim , I am the Can-Am On-Road Retail Director for North America. Rest assured we are fully aware of the issue. There should have been some zip ties as a temporary solution while we finish manufacturing the parts for the fix. They should take about 8 weeks. We decided to ship the vehicles despite the cosmetic issue because they do not pose a safety risk. We believe people would enjoy riding for the next 8 weeks over waiting for their vehicle. Your dealer should reach out to you as soon as the parts are in.
    I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. In the meantime enjoy the ride!
