The notice says the clutch may fail under high-load, low speed conditions.
“If the clutch fails, this can cause clutch components to be ejected from the clutch housing. This could increase the risk of an accident and injury to vehicle occupants or other road users.”
Consumers should stop using the vehicle and contact an authorised Polaris dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair.
