1. The brake light switch may have been over-tightened during production. This could result in a loss of brake fluid and subsequent reduction in braking performance.
2. There may be insufficient clearance between the fuel pipe and the bonnet. This could result in the abrasion of the fuel pipe, leading to a risk of fire.
3. The suspension swinging arm may not have the required strength and could consequently fail, affecting the directional control of the machine.

The recall affects Model Year 2016 – 2017 vehicles manufactured between 22. 4. 2014 and 26. 9. 2016.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your motorcycle, you should make contact with a Polaris dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer.

Manufacturers offer an unlimited time for those repairs, meaning that second or third owners can still get a recalled motorcycle fixed at no charge.
