It's part of the Polaris recall listing at the top of the Polaris page. This one is 2 years old, mind you...

Isn't everything?
I like AC's big opening though. Don't need a funnel. Gotta have the right funnel for my Pol or the handlebar gets in the way. Stripped the cap on my first one.

Who,me? Part time Canuck

Is this the same recall?

CHICAGO, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Snowmobile and motorcycle maker Polaris Industries Inc (PII.N: Quote, Profile, Research) is recalling around 28,000 snowmobiles because of a fire hazard related to the fuel tank, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.

The CPSC said the recall is voluntary and in cooperation with Minneapolis-based Polaris.

The safety agency said the fuel tank filler on the recalled snowmobiles can crack, allowing fuel or fuel vapors to leak and posing a fire hazard to riders. (Reporting by Nick Carey, editing by Gerald E. McCormick)

I just bought my '04 ProX 550...would I still be able to have it fixed for free if I brought it in to a dealer? I see this recall list was made in 2005....
