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

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
