    It has been found that cracks may be developing in the welded joints of the drive axle assembly and may lead to a complete breakage of the component. This may cause the track of the vehicle to suddenly lock. If this occurs riders may be ejected off the vehicle or loose control and collide with bystanders, a fixed object or other vehicles potentially resulting in serious injuries and/or death.

    You should immediately stop using your vehicle, call an authorized BRP dealer and make an appointment to have your vehicle repaired. Your dealer will replace the drive axle assembly and will perform this work at no charge to you.

    If you have questions, need assistance or to find your nearest authorized BRP dealer, visit www.skidoo.com, or call in the U.S. and Canada: 888-638-5397, 8:00 to 18:00 Eastern time.

    BRP apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
