Ski-Doo Issues Recall Over Fire Risk

Ski-Doo announced a recall this month over an issue that could cause a fire in thousands of sleds.

The 2017 Freeride, MXZ, Renegade and Summit models fit with 850 E-TEC engines are all affected by the recall, which is over fuel hose connections.

In the affected units, the hose connections can wear our prematurely and leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire. Ski-Doo says that the initial recall was issued on March 29 and an interim repair was implemented on April 17.

A permanent solution for the problem will not be here until July.

Owners are instructed not to ride their snowmobiles until the fix can be made, though if you must ride your snowmobile, your local BRP dealer will be able to perform the interim repair procedure.

For those in remote areas where there is no local dealer, contact BRP’s customer service at 1-888-272-9222.

Ski-Doo also says that aftermarket modifications will not prevent it from performing the recall fix on a snowmobile.
