Polaris Industries Inc., in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling about 11,300 “Outlaw IRS” ATVs, Model Year 2006-2008 due to risk of injury to riders.
A retention bolt can come loose causing the rear wheels to lock up, which poses a risk of serious injury to the rider. The firm has received 11 reports of loss of control, including one rider who suffered a strained leg muscle.
The recalled ATVs include some models of the 2006-2008 Polaris “Outlaw” ATVs with Independent Rear Suspension. The models that are being recalled are:
2006 OUTLAW 500 “IRS”, 2007 OUTLAW 500 “IRS”, 2007 OUTLAW 525 “IRS”, 2008 OUTLAW 525 “IRS”
The model name can be found on decals on either side of the fuel tank.
The ATVs were available at Polaris dealerships across the U.S. from January 2006 to January 2008 and were manufactured in the United States.
