That sounds crazy. Seven weeks? :eek:

I follow most, if not all of the spyder message boards - really the first time I have heard of this. Most of the time, the shop is too proud (or more likely lazy) to work with BRP directly on the issue - once they work with BRP the issue is usually resolved in just a day or so. Push them to call BRP - and start calling and complaining to BRP directly. You may also want to, although a huge pain, find another shop/dealership and move the bike if you don't get any progress immediately.

transmission problems, flickering N and R

I had the same problem. Replaced the gear position sensor. Problem solved, at least for the 1000 miles since then.

re solve

My suggestion would be to contact lamont on spyderlovers. He could probably find someone who could resolve.

Help....

I'll Pass on your information to the appropriate parties for help if you'll forward me your VIN, phone and any specifics you feel are appropriate.

Also, on issues like this there are two great avenues for assistance available to you:

The first is to contact the Spyder team at: [email protected]

The second is to try this number (888) 864-2002 and it is staffed for 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET any day, I'm pretty sure it is the right one, if not, I'm sure they will be able to point you in the correct direction.

My Spyder suffered the exact problem and was resolved with a new shift position sensor. Your dealer should be able to verify the malfunctions by hooking up to the computer and running diagnostics (B.U.D.S.). Part will be under warranty. Several peoplke have had this problem.

Gear positioning Sensor Error

I believe I have experienced the same fault. The instersting part is that when the pike gets cold the code errors dissapear C1290 and P0707.
The original gear positioning sensor is definatly the faulty part and funny enough this has started after the DPI recall and software upgrade was done.
Maybe the sensor should have been replaced in the first place as I have a feeling it sending wrong messages to the computer and can cause the tempreture and stearing to Malfunction..

Never the less the Factory is carefull putting out recalls since the Sensor and the Parking foot brake should have been covered under warranty.
