Polaris Slingshot owners should take note of this latest recall, as it affects 6,860 Slingshot motorcycles that were manufactured between December 28, 2015, and April 27, 2016.
According to the documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the brake pressure switch on the affected units may have been over tightened, which may have damaged the seal.
If the brake pressure switch is damaged, it may allow brake fluid to leak, which would result in reduced braking performance. Since this can increase the likelihood of a crash, the recall was issued.
As such, Polaris will notify affected owners, and Polaris dealers will install new brake pressure switch seals, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month.
Concerned ownder may contact Polaris customer service at 1-855-863-2284, and reference recall number T-16-02. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
