Polaris has issued a recall for about 800 2009 800 Assault RMK sleds due to a risk of loss of control hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced.
Bolts in the rear suspension can break and cause the rail tip to dislodge and interfere with the track. This might cause the track to lock up and the driver to lose control of the snowmobile.
Polaris has received reports of eight incidents in which the rail tip bolts broke, two of which resulted in the rider being ejected from the sled. If you own an Assault, contact a Polaris snowmobile dealer to schedule a free repair.
