On the eve of the legal start of another snowmobile season, Polaris issued its latest recalls.

The first one one affects approximately 4,500 Polaris mountain (both Pro RMK and RMK Khaos) sleds that utilize the 9R engine. As you’ll see in the notice directly below, no injuries have been reported but 91 clutches have failed.

The second (posted far below) is focused on 4,600 units that utilized the Patriot 850 powerplant equipped with electreic start. According to the official news release, there have been 9 reports of ring gear failure among that batch, including four where the clutch seperated from the snowmobile.

In July, Polaris issued a Stop Ride/Stop Sale for many of the same vehicles for the same or similar problems. These official recalls formalize things with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

The failure can cause the clutch or clutch components to be separated from the unit, posing an potential injury hazard to consumers.

Number of affected vehicles: approximately 4,500 units globally

Number of incidents: Polaris has identified 91 reports of clutch failure, including nine reports where the clutch components separated from the unit. Polaris is not aware of any reports of personal injury associated with this concern.
