Issue

On the models covered by this recall, the spring could lose its tension. In some situations, the wheel may engage without the snowmobiler’s intervention, which could lead to a loss of control of the vehicle and, therefore, a risk of injury.

As of December 23, 2021, the company has received no reports of incident or injury in Canada.
