Polaris recall

4 posts in this topic

From the Startribune;

Polaris Industries Inc. said Tuesday it is recalling about 133,000 RZR 900 and 1000 off-road vehicles it has made since 2013, citing reports of fire risk.

The company said it does not expect the recall to affect its financial performance.

In an announcement with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Polaris said owners of the off-road vehicles will be asked to contact a dealer for a free appointment to replace some parts.

Polaris has received more than 160 reports of fire involving the models, including 19 injuries and one death, the product safety commission said.

Some of the same vehicles were recalled last October because of a hazard with a fuel vent line. And later in the year, Polaris recalled some RZR XP Turbo vehicles that were sold from September to November to fix an oil drain line that also posed a fire risk.

Polaris said it has implemented a “corrective action plan” and updated its factory processes on newer versions of the RZR vehicle. The company also added warnings that tell riders not to carry fuel and other flammable liquids in their vehicles.

“We have been proactive, aggressive and thorough in putting forth a plan to get our vehicles repaired and give us, and our customers, confidence in the safety of our RZR vehicles,” Scott Wine, chief executive of Polaris, said in a statement.

Typical Polaris quality. I owned a RZR for a few years and yeah,it was fun but quality for the price they charge was low.

I don't miss it at all

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
