Polaris Industries Inc—Lock & Ride Passenger Backrests
What are the defects?
The affected passenger backrests, when used with an accessory luggage rack, can crack at the chassis mounting point.
What are the hazards?
This could cause a passenger to lose support, increasing the risk of the passenger falling off of the motorcycle.
What should consumers do?
If your Victory Cross Roads, Cross Country or Hard-Ball motorcycle currently has, or has ever had, a luggage rack installed onto your Lock & Ride® passenger backrest, you must remove and retain your passenger backrest from your motorcycle before operating your motorcycle.
Contact your authorized Victory motorcycle dealer to schedule an appointment to have the bulletin repair performed. If you have removed your passenger backrest and luggage rack so you could continue to use your motorcycle, you must retain them so that they can be presented to your Victory dealer for exchange. Repairs must be done only by an authorized Victory motorcycle dealer.
