Polaris Recalls Some Model Year 2022 MATRYX RMK, INDY, SWITCHBACK, VOYAGEUR, and NORDIC PRO Snowmobiles.
Polaris has determined that the throttle release switch (TRS) on some models can fail to disengage when the throttle lever is released and if a stuck throttle condition occurs when the TRS fails to disengage, it can lead to loss of vehicle control, posing a crash hazard and risk of serious injury. In addition, Polaris has determined that the throttle cable in some Model Year 2022 MATRYX RMK units can be kinked during installation, which can lead to damage of the throttle cable during operation and impairment of the throttle function, posing a crash hazard and risk of serious injury.
Number of affected vehicles: approximately 13,300 units globally
Number of incidents: Polaris has received four reports of kinked throttle cables and three reports of a stuck throttle. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the impacted units and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair if needed. DO NOT attempt any repairs yourself.
