Any idea what the issue is supposed to be? Only kind of safety thing I can think of that pulling a fuse would help would be a short...haven't heard of any complaints at all with the DPS.....

the u.k site never has put any recalls up..just checked under archives
Ok..wasn't sure about BRP...I know Polaris lists their recalls under the press releases section.
Unless there is something different about the PS on the UK model? If the UK had a recall you would think the US would as well..nothing on the CPSC website...no US recall.

got a couple hundred miles on my 2010 max xt-p 800, no issues, power-steering works fine, all though i thought it was alittle funky, changing the setting, with the combination reverse over-ride button, i've had no issues, but think a separate switch would have been better, if ya get some crud in there, wonder if it's gonna get a mind of its own ? not saying this is the issue, just something to wonder about if your a real mudder.

How would a separate switch be any more impervious to "crud"?
Just curious...I think combining it with the rev override is fine..look at it on the flip side..it cuts down on the need for another switch which could fail...
Add a switch for every little function and pretty soon you have what would look like the cock pit of an aircraft...jmo

I've got over 1000 miles on my 800 xt now and I don't ever switch it from the DPS max setting. I tried min a few times when it was new but didn't see any benefit to it.

i hear ya, just my reverse over-ide, on my 07 800, got water and crud in it, not sealed very well, but could solve that with some dielectic grease, my 4x4 switch the same, thought if the adjustement was on the pod, would be protected from crud, but then, not as easy to adjust on the fly. i ain't no engineer, just a " bleacher bum". i'm lovin this thing, took my 07 800 xt, for alittle spin in my dirt parking lot, was amazed how hard it steers compared to the xt-p, night and day difference. i am gonna stealth snorkel my cvt-exhaust, not really cured of the mudding problem i got.:clapsmilie:

I leave mine on Max as well 99% of the time...but when riding fast for extended periods the Min is nice...it doesn't feel unsafe at speed on Max...just TOO easy,Min feels better at high speeds.:smilietwocents:

Maybe there is different setup because they ride on the left side of the road :yahoo:

Read a post in the Rene section about the Xxc recall from the guy in Canada
http://www.can-amforum.com/forums/can-am-renegade/16945-safety-recall-2010-rene-xxc.html

He said the recall states the machine can suddenly pull to the left..No word on it effecting the Outtys...
Just an FYI for the unimformed..the handlebars have a direct connection..the PS can not turn the wheels without also turning the handle bars,in case anyone was wondering...
My DPS has never tried to get ahead of me,or turn the wheels on its own at all.
Hopefully it is just an Xxc thing...sounds possible, like it is a programming issue if anything.

I cant remeber exactly the problem but from memory the powersteering could have some kind of grounding problem that would make the steering pull to the left.

With the update done if this happens the powersteering will momentarily be shut off so there is no risk of the machine pulling left on its own.
And this affects all 2010 models with powersteering.
You should all get a notification in the mail from BRP soon because this is a safety recall.

From the Can-Am ATV recalls page(link above)
"There are no recent recalls at this time."

The only recall I can find is for the SPYDER DPS...is it possible there is some confusion going on here?
