According to the CPSC, the right side panel heat shield of the recalled ATVs can melt, posing burn and fire hazards to riders. In addition, in 2015 Sportsman 1000 ATVs, the exhaust springs can stretch and damage the exhaust seal, which can result in exhaust leaks and pose burn and fire hazards. Polaris has received at least 793 incidents, including reports of warped, melted or burned side panels, 47 fires and four (4) minor burn injuries.
