    Dear Slingshot Owner:
    This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. The Slingshot Division of Polaris Industries Inc. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in some 2015-2017 Slingshot vehicles. Our records indicate that you have purchased a potentially affected vehicle.

    The reason for this recall:
    First, Polaris has determined that some Slingshot vehicles were manufactured with a brake system seal that does not meet Polaris quality standards. Some vehicles may have been manufactured where the brake pressure switch was over torqued. This may result in a yielded brake seal posing a leak in the brake system. A leak in the brake system, after a period of non-use, may result in decreased brake performance increasing the risk of a crash.

    Second, Polaris has determined that some Slingshot vehicles were manufactured with an engine fuel line that does not meet Polaris quality standards. Some vehicles may have been manufactured where there may be insufficient clearance between the fuel line and hood structure. This can result in abrasion of the fuel line posing a potential fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may pose a fire hazard.

    Third, Polaris has determined that some Slingshot vehicles were manufactured with a swingarm that does not meet Polaris quality standards. Some vehicles may have been assembled with an improperly manufactured swingarm, resulting in decreased swingarm strength. If the swingarm is compromised it can result in a loss of forward momentum or control, increasing the risk of a crash.

    What Polaris and your dealer will do:
    While parts availability may be limited, Polaris is working with suppliers to procure parts as soon as possible. Your Polaris Slingshot dealer has been authorized to complete the updates outlined below at no cost to you:

    Affected Component Repair Action:
    Recall T-16-02
    Brake Seals Install new brake pressure switch seals to decrease the risk of a leak

    Recall T-16-03
    Engine Fuel Line Replace the engine fuel line and inspect retention clips to reduce the risk of interference

    Recall T-16-06
    Swingarm Inspect, repair or replace the swingarm to reduce the risk of structural damage

    What you should do:
    Polaris will be sending you a follow-up communication no later than the end of November regarding the next steps for completing these bulletins. Once you receive this letter, please contact your local Slingshot dealer at your earliest convenience to schedule an appointment to have bulletin repairs performed. When making contact with your dealer, discuss parts availability, their schedule and how long they will need to keep your vehicle to complete the updates.

    If you have questions or if you need more information:
    While your Slingshot dealer is in the best position to answer your questions, if you have any questions that your dealer cannot address, if you are having difficulty obtaining the recall repairs outlined in this letter, or if you need assistance finding a Slingshot dealer, please visit the Slingshot website at Polaris Slingshot : 3-Wheel Motorcycle - Reverse Trike or contact our Slingshot Consumer Service Department by calling 1-855-863-2284.

    This notice was mailed to you according to our most current registration information. If you no longer own your Slingshot vehicle, please contact your local Slingshot dealer to have the ownership information changed. The Slingshot Consumer Service Department cannot change ownership information without identification. Federal law requires that any vehicle lessor receiving this recall notice must forward a copy of this notice to the lessee within 10 days.

    If you have had these repairs performed before you received this letter, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for the cost of obtaining a pre-notification remedy of the problem associated with this recall. For more information regarding reimbursement please contact your Slingshot dealer or the Slingshot Consumer Service Department using the information above.

    If you believe that the Slingshot Division of Polaris Industries Inc. has failed to remedy this defect without charge or is unable to do so within a reasonable time, you may submit a complaint to the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, D.C. 20590; or call the toll-free Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or on the web go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

    Sincerely,
    The Polaris Slingshot Team
