Polaris is recalling certain model year 2011 Victory Cross Country motorcycles manufactured from January 1, through April 11, 2011. The handlebar clamps and/or risers may have been machined incorrectly, which could cause the handlebars to slip in the clamps. This could cause the operator to lose control, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
The number of vehicles affected is 840. The recall number is #11V305000. Polaris will notify owners, and dealers will test and replace defective riser/clamp assemblies, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during June 2011. Owners may contact Victory consumer service at 1-888-704-5290.
