RIV wasn't an issue, but required the recall notice from the dealer. Once they learned how to do it, its a simple procedure. Bringing the machines in is another headache. My customs agent was a hardass and found the most expensive price to determine the machine value and maximize the import fee.
As posted, check out riv and the cibc websites for importing vehicles from the states.

Now, if you bought a used sled from a US dealer, and you were planning on exporting it home to Canada, I dont see why they wouldn't check their DB for you and provide a recall clearance letter. However, if you just walk in and say you bought a sled from Joe Blow and want a RCL....they may not be so quick to help.....
To answer your question....No, the "owner" cannot provide you with a RCL....as RIV states, it must come from the manufacturer with the BRP's letterhead (or an authorized dealers letterhead) as well as the VIN and a signature from an authorized person. It's a PIA.
I called some Ontario Ski-doo dealers and asked about this last time....they just laugh and say "sure, I'll get you a clearance letter....bring me your VIN # and $300"
How can we blame them when BRP discounts the same sleds sold south of the border in which they are made??

If BRP has to resort to terror tactics($300 letter), then it clearly shows how crooked low they are willing go, rather than be moral and practice fair pricing.

As always, there is more than the purchase price when considering a dealer, and things like this are another example of that. Get a dealer you can work with and they'll work with you too.
It also benefits your dealer to help you out - as long as you're buying another one.
The XP is the most fun sled ever made - but I like my XR more.

Canadian Tire never charges anyone.....always free to the importer...RIV pays them
I sent in my letter from the states that has the red ink, This is Not A Recall Clearance Letter, to RIV. My sled needed manifold bolts recall, I had the guy get that done and sent that printout with work done to RIV also. They RIV accepted these papers as a clearance letter. As a bonus, Canadian Tire did not charge for their inspection, part 2, form 2.
