Exclamation Polaris Recalls Sportsman XPs

Hazard: The crankcase breather valve assembly can fail in freezing temperatures, causing oil to leak onto the exhaust system. This could pose a fire and burn hazard to the rider.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received six reports of the crankcase breather valve assembly failing in freezing temperatures, resulting in three small fires. Minor fire damage to air boxes, ignition coils and the seat were reported.

Description: : This recall involves the Polaris ATVs with model year 2009. The ATVs were sold under market names Sportsman XP 850 EPS 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.
