Polaris has voluntarily recalled 800 of its' 2009 800 Assault RMK 146 snowmobiles due to a potential to cause snowmobilers to lose control of the sled, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
According to the USPSC's
website, the rear suspension's bolts can break causing the rail tip to become dislodged and interfere with the track. This could cause the track to lock up and the rider to lose control.
Polaris reported eight incidents in which the rail tip bolts broke, two of the incidents resulted in the rider being ejected. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves 2009 Polaris 800 Assault RMK 146 snowmobiles both in red and black.
Consumers should look for model numbers S09PL8EE and S09PL8ES, which is located on the right side of the tunnel below the seat.
These snowmobiles were sold nationwide from September 2008 through June 2009 for about $10,600.
