Polaris Industries Inc., of Medina, Minnesota, has recalled about 11,300 Select “Outlaw IRS” ATVs, Model Year 2006-2008. A retention bolt can come loose causing the rear wheels to lock up, which poses a risk of serious injury to the rider.

The recall involves select 2006-2008 Polaris “Outlaw” ATVs with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS).
