CFMOTO Powersports of Plymouth, Minn., is recalling about 500 model year 2020 ZFORCE 950 Sport recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs).
The fuel line fitting on the vehicles can fail to securely lock onto the fuel injector inlet, allowing fuel to spill onto the hot engine parts and ignite, posing a fire hazard.
The firm has received two reports of the fuel injector connection not fully secure and locked in place, causing a fuel leak. One of the incidents resulted in a vehicle engine fire. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the 2020 ZFORCE 950 Sport ROV with a 963cc 4-cycle engine. Vehicles colors are red or gray with the CFMOTO logo in the center of the front grille.
The model name is located on each side of the vehicle doors. The model year 2020 ROVs will have the L in the 10th position of the vehicle identification number (VIN).
The VIN number is stamped on the right side frame rail, behind the right rear tire.
The ROVs, manufactured in China, were sold at CFMOTO dealers nationwide from June 2020, through August 2020, for about $13,000.
