KYMCO USA, of Spartanburg, S.C. is recalling about 1,700 units of its 2008 model year 70cc and 90cc Mongoose youth ATVs.
KYMCO says a manufacturing defect in the carburetor can cause the throttle to stick open, posing a risk to the rider. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Manufactured in Taiwan, the units were sold by KYMCO dealers nationwide from August 2007 through June 2008 for between $1,700 and $2,100.
Registered owners were sent direct mail notification of this recall and asked to contact an authorized KYMCO dealer to schedule a free repair.
