– Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  and Transport Canada, is issuing a voluntary recall on model year 2015 Polaris RZR 900 and 1000 vehicles due to reports of pinched fuel tank vent lines.  The recall is related to the vehicle’s fuel tank vent line potentially being incorrectly installed during manufacturing, causing it to become pinched, which may cause the fuel tank to pressurize and leak fuel, posing a potential fire hazard.  Polaris estimates that the assembly error occurred in very few vehicles; however, Polaris is issuing a voluntary recall so that all these vehicles could be inspected and any affected vent lines fixed prior to further use.

The return of the Arizona Offroad and Sand Expo this weekend September 25th to 27th has drawn a large amount of attention from the entire industry and local enthusiasts.  This show is shaping up to be one of the wildest trade show and off-road events located in the heart of Arizona at Westworld of Scottsdale.

“We have been blown away with the positive response from every company that we have talked to regarding coming and displaying at the show.  Originally we had a goal of 80 vendors, but the show has sold out twice now, upping the footprint to be able to satisfy almost 200 exhibitors,” said Andy Myers, show promoter.  “We shut the show down in 2009 when the economy could no longer host such an event.  About a year ago we realized that the market was sparking some serious interest, especially here in Arizona.  I am really proud to be able to bring this show back so everyone can once again get together with success and off-roading in mind.”
