True Laser Track Laser Aligns the BRP CanAm Spyder With Bikeweek only days away, all thoughts are aimed at motorcycles in the Daytona Beach area. Just a short drive south on US 1 from Daytona is home of “True Laser Track” the patented laser alignment system for the CanAm Spyders.

This is not “new technology”… This is 15+ years of Patented and Proven WINNING NASCAR technology…adapted to the CanAm Spyder in 2013.

Originally, Mike Loescher invented the laser system for his fleet of 14 race cars in his race school in 2004.

In 2012 I broke my leg and made it impossible to ride my Roadstar for a trip my wife and I were taking…my friend from high school suggested a Spyder…after some thought and a quick trip to Central Florida Powersports…we bought one. Well what a surprise when I got it home…it darted and wandered all over the road, when I called that same friend who worked for BRP for 20 years ….he said they all do that. That was not acceptable to me….what I found out was every Spyder has “bump steer” in layman’s terms that means when the rider steps on to the bike the TOE changes…and if it changes to toe OUT that is a very scary ride. I also found out that the factory aligns to the frame…which in the race car world you would never want to do that…the frames are not square.
So I machined perfect adapters that attached to the steel center front spindle, where the wheel bearing is located. This is the exact center of the rotating front wheel mass. It is the only way that you can get a true alignment measurement; any other point will not be accurate. These adapters are machined PERECT with no run out, so the laser beam measurements are to the "thousands" or even a better description "to the width of a HUMAN HAIR, “states Mike.

A proper laser alignment can be done on a CanAm Spyder in less than 1 hour….more like 30 minutes.


On 3/25/14 BRP issues a service bulletin named Roadster alignment specifications, number 2014-6.
In this bulletin BRP endorses The True Laser Track patented Laser System and recommends their dealers use this revolutionary new method to align the Spyder.

On 3/25/2015 BRP issues a additional service bulletin named Roadster alignment specifications, number 2015-6A, endorsing True Laser track for the 2nd year in a row.

On 2/25/2016 BRP issues a additional service bulletin to their dealers named Roadster alignment specifications, number 2016-6, endorsing True Laser track for the 3rd year in a row

The patented laser system has been on the CanAm Market since July of 2013…we now have 153 BRP dealers in 28 states, 8 BRP dealers in Canada, 3 International and 12 Independents.

Most BRP dealers laser align every new Spyder that comes into their dealership from the factory….and the new 2015’s will be the same.
