Polaris Industries, Inc. "Polaris" is recalling certain model year 2014 Victory Cross Country, Cross Country Eight Ball, Hammer Eight Ball, High Ball, Jackpot, Judge, Ness Cross Country, Vegas Eight Ball, Vision, Boardwalk, and 2015 Victory Gunner motorcycles manufactured January 22, 2014, through April 25, 2014. The crankcase may have been machined incorrectly causing insufficient clearance between the crankshaft and crankcase, causing the engine to unexpectedly seize.
Engine seizure may cause the operator to lose control of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Polaris will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the crankcase clearance, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on May 20, 2014. Owners may contact Polaris customer service at 1-888-704-5290. Note: Owners are advised not to ride their motorcycle until the recall remdy has been performed.
