But you're right, one clutch failure with no injury and the manufacturer proactively issuing a recall is just as bad as multiple people dying, countless vehicles burning to the ground before the manufacturer reluctantly is basically forced to do something about the issue. One recall each right so it's the same thing?? Pretty dumb thought process.

The recall is due to the bearing in the primary seizing up and causing sheeves to get hot and potentially blow apart - its on the new "self adjusting" deflection primary.

I wouldn't say xx amount of years and still can't get it right because my 2016 works damn good with a team primary compared to my 2012 that had to be replaced due to incorrect clearances.

So some guy has a gas can right on top of the exhaust of his razor on a sweltering hot day. The can explodes and kills the occupant of the machine.
Why would the mfg not hold off and question every case then. I am sure every time someone dies on any type of vehicle the lawyers and ambulance chasers are going to go after the guy with the fattest wallet.

That is not even close to what happened. There were thousands of issues. That is why it cost Polaris an absolute shit ton of money. And their investors even more

When the fires are becoming an epidemic and the manufacturer was turning a blind eye to it is what the problem is until the CSPC stepped in and forced them (see the stop sale/ride of all 2016 turbos the morning of their dealer show to reveal the 2017 models - they didn't even release the 2017 turbo car that day because they knew they had an issue that was still unresolved). Then they stuck the consumer that invested in that $26k pile because if the consumer called the dealer about the recall the dealer was to report their vin number if they continued to ride it to exit any responsibility they (Polaris) had.

Ive seen Cats, Yamahas, and Canams go up in flames for the brilliance of having the fuel cans in the back - Thats not the issue with the 200k+ unit recall that poo has issued.

The largest issue was on the 900, 1000 s , 900/1000 fullsize cars were that some brilliant engineer put the fuel tank vent line above the header. Then on the turbo Polaris went cheap on an casting that an oil fitting went into - it cracks and sprays oil all over the header. These things run red hot headers from the factory thanks to the epa and the minute fuel slops out of the vent it ignites the vapor in the tank thats under the occupant. Or when the turbo casting breaks it sprays all over the header and the occupant can't see they're on fire in most cases until its too late.
