KEY POINTS

  • Polaris issued the recall for certain units of Youth ATVs sold in 2021
  • There have been two reports of fuel leaks
  • 1,200 units are affected by the recall globally

Polaris has recalled certain units of its youth all-terrain vehicles (ATV) because they may pose a fire hazard. Those who have affected units should stop riding them.

The problem with Polaris’ Model Year 2022 Outlaw 110 EFI Youth All-Terrain Vehicles is that the units may pose a fire hazard because the “inner layer of the fuel line can leak,” the recall alert on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) noted.

So far, the company has received two reports of the fuel leaks, but it has not received reports of fire or personal injuries related to the issue. Customers are being advised to stop using the units and instead to contact a Polaris dealer so they can set a schedule for a free repair.

“Polaris will be contacting all registered owners directly to provide more details about the repair,” the alert noted.

The company stressed that customers should not “attempt any repairs yourself.”

The recall affects certain VINs (vehicle identification number) of the recalled model. They came in gray/pink and gray/lime colors and were sold via Polaris dealers across the country from September to November 2021. Globally, some 1,200 ATC units are affected by the recall, the company noted.

Those who may have purchased the said product should go to the company’s website, where they may input their unit’s VIN or contact Polaris at 800-765-2747 to find out if their unit is included in the recall. The VIN may be located in the “left side wheel well,” the CPSC noted.

According to the company it had issued a Stop Sale, Stop Ride noted by Dec. 7, 2021. It announced the voluntary recall on Thursday.

ATV Safety

There are several “golden rules” when it comes to ATV safety, according to the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). This includes never riding on paved roads since ATV are designed to be used off-highway and never riding under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s also important to only ride an ATV that’s right for the user’s age and make sure to supervise users that are younger than 16 years old. As the organization noted, “ATVs are not toys.”

Other important rules to remember include wearing the right attire as well as safety gear such as helmet, gloves and goggles, and to only ride “on designated trails and at a safe speed.”
