Polaris Industries recalls ATVs due to fire
hazard
A 2009 model year Polaris All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) safety recall was voluntarily conducted by Polaris Industries
in cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed. The
valve assembly can fail in freezing temperatures, causing oil to leak into the exhaust system. This could pose a fire
and burn hazard to the rider. The firm has received six reports of the valve assembly failing in freezing temperatures,
resulting in three small fires. Minor fire damage to air boxes, ignition coils and the seat were reported. This recall
involves the Polaris ATVs with model year 2009. The ATVs were sold under market names Sportsman ESP XP 850
and Sportsman XP 850 ATVs. The model and serial number identification decal is located on the left side of the
machine on the frame rail below the front fender. Source: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09755.html
