Even the car manufactures who have to go through much more testing have recalls......it happens everywhere. And us consumers who demand everything cheap doesn't help.you would think this stuff should be tested prior to public release? Polaris by far has the most safety recalls of all other power sports company's combined? maybe it's time to look at the people in charge and maybe show them the door. this stuff just keeps happening over and over. and people have died from some of these failures.
Didn’t know if they were breaking, corroding, unloading… but yea if they are breaking could be material or plating process - if they are Zinc plated which a lot of hardware for outdoor use is then hydrogen embrittlement is a pretty common failure but there’s obviously many things it could be so… just didn’t know what actually is happening to the boltprobably snapping similar to the 2ndary deflection screw due to poor material.
This is most likely the case. This has been going on at Polaris longer than I've gotten back into the sport. I dealer friend told me this years ago.IMO, usually test units/pre production sleds are hand built and with material designers choose. Then bean counters get the final say on cost effective materials/parts sources, is main reason for recalls/defective parts in final production units we receive.
