Polaris Industries Inc. is recalling about 11,300 "Outlaw IRS" ATVs. The OEM says a retention bolt can come loose causing the rear wheels to lock up, which poses a risk of serious injury to the rider.
The recall involves select 2006-2008 Polaris "Outlaw" ATVs with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS). The affected models include the:
2006 OUTLAW 500 IRS
2007 OUTLAW 500 IRS
2007 OUTLAW 525 IRS
2008 OUTLAW 525 IRS
Manufactured in the United States, the units were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from January 2006 through January 2008 for between $6,900 and $7,400.
Polaris has received 11 reports of loss of control, including one rider who suffered a strained leg muscle.
Polaris says consumers should stop using the recalled ATVs immediately, and contact any Polaris ATV dealer to schedule a free repair. Polaris has notified registered consumers directly about this recall.
