What is this please?

Hello all, can anyone tell me what this plug is and where did it come from on my 19 RS1?

Much appreciated!

Re: What is this please?

looks like some type of temporary plug to me. Like the plugs you put in engine ports to stop debris from falling in when its not installed in the machine. I cant imagine something like that being permanent. Maybe it was laying somewhere loose from assembly and finally fell out.

Re: What is this please?

I have never seen one anywhere I would think it would have to be some excess packaging from the dealer.

Yeah, this was my thought as well. Just to flimsy looking to be something of importance.

Thanks a lot!

They are used to cap off ducting/intake during manufacturing and Polaris forgot to remove them, good thing you found it!

Polaris actually issued a stop ride on some 19 models for this same thing: https://www.polaris.com/en-us/recall...urbo-vehicles/

No problem! I had heard that there were some models that these plugs were actually blocking the intake covers for clutch/air intake. I'd bet you found the only one but to be safe you might check under your intake.

I found one on my last 2017 Turbo sucked down the engine intake just before the air box.
