Polaris has issued a recall bulletin affecting around 2,400 snowmobiles for the model year 2022.
Polaris has determined that under certain operating conditions some 2022 Patriot Boost RMK KHAOS and PRO RMK snowmobiles may have an increased risk of primary (drive) clutch bolt failure. Certain primary clutch bolt failures can cause clutch components to be separated from the unit, posing a potential injury hazard to consumers
Owners and dealers are advised not to ride or sell any of the affected units until the impacted vehicles can be inspected and repaired by an authorized dealer. Repairs will be completed for the affected consumers for free.
The recalled snowmobiles were sold in the following color combinations: black, black/blue, neon/orange, and red/white. Polaris and the model name are printed on the chassis on both sides of the snowmobiles. The model year and VIN are stamped on the right side of the tunnel.
