    JUST FOR YOUR INFORMATION



    Product: Polaris 900 Fusion, 900 RMK and 900 Switchback Snowmobiles

    Units: about 7,800

    Manufacturer/Importer: Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn.

    Hazard: There are 3 seperate issues involved in this safety recall:

    - Front Suspension Spindle -
    The nut that fastens the upper control arm ball joint to the suspension spindle can loosen. If this occurs, continued operation could allow the spindle to break and release the upper control arm, posing a risk of loss of control of vehicle.

    - Fuel Tank Chafing -
    The fuel tanks can contact the chassis along the bulkheads leading to wear onthe tank walls. This could pose a fuel leakage hazard.

    - Gasket -
    The gasket sealing the fuel pump assembly to the tank can develop cracks. This poses a risk of fuel leakage and fire hazard.

    Incidents / Injuries: 32 reports of spindle damage and two of fuel leaks. No injuries or property damage.
