Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 94,000 model years 2021-2023 Sportsman 450 and 570 All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) sold in the U.S., and Canada.

An improperly assembled wiring harness can contact the brake line and/or vehicle frame during use which can result in a loss of the use of the front brakes and/or a fire.

The firm has received five reports of fire and three reports of damaged wires. Of the five reports of fire, two reports also indicated a loss of the front brake function.

This recall involves certain VINs of model years 2021-2023 Sportsman 450 and 570 ATVs.

The recalled ATVs were sold in green, blue, beige, red, camouflage, gray, titanium metallic, black, white, azure crystal and orange.

POLARIS is stamped on the front grille and POLARIS and Sportsman are printed on the sides of the vehicles. The model name is also printed on the side of the chassis.

The VIN is located on the ATV’s left rear frame.

The ATVs, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from May 2019, through November 2022, for between $6,600 and $11,600.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free repair.

Polaris has notified consumers to stop riding the vehicles and is contacting registered owners directly to provide more details about the repair.

Consumers may contact Polaris at (800) 765-2747 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (CT) Monday through Friday or online at www.polaris.com/en-us/off-road-recalls  to check if their vehicle identification number (VIN) is included in any recalls.
