WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 25, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –
|Potential Number of Units Affected: 6,618|
Polaris is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Victory motorcycles manufactured from January 3, 2012, through August 15, 2012. A torqueing procedure may have been missed on some throttle cable retention nuts. On certain motorcycles, the throttle cable retention nuts for either the pull or push throttle cable may have not been torqued correctly.
If the torqueing is missed and the retention nuts are loose, the retention nuts closest to the throttle body can become dislodged and interfere with the throttle function, increasing the risk of a crash.
Victory will notify owners and dealers will correctly torque the fasteners free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on October 12, 2012. Owners may contact Victory consumer service department by calling 1-888-704-5290.
Polaris’ recall number is V-12-01. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
