Good luck with that. Dealer reflash opens up a whole new can of worms. It's a voluntary recall and if you RZR is running good leave it alone. And if it's not running ok then get it reflashed from a vendor on the forum like EVO.

I'm not feeling the ECU reflash is needed. When I pull it on on polaris site it just says ECU reflash and no reasoning. My RZR is running fine and I'd hate to let them play with it if there is no real reason to.

Re: ecu reflash recal

exactly just because you feel that's running fine does not mean its not needed ask call the companies that make exhaust systems they all say that the S 1000 runs lean from the factory ECU Flash so that definitely can be a source of heavy exhaust heat also on the page where you see the recall click on hyper link that will tell you more about it.

That is incorrect it is a mandatory recall it says do not operate your RZR until you the recall has been completed
The Flash's to prevent misfires so one would assume they're going to fatten it up a bit as it is it runs way too lean these machines in mid-range

I'm probably the only one who's completely unconcerned and have no intention of stopping riding nor taking my machine in anywhere lol.

I never stopped riding last time. So the whole recall thing only cost me a trip to the dealer for the recall work. And I got an extra year of warranty. Not a bad trade. Lol

Seems strange that only the 4 seat 2016 Turbo is recalled and not the two seat.

Must be a different tune, as I would think the brake components are the same.

The weird part is my vin# off my 17 turbo doesn't work. I got the number off the machine it matched my registration which matches my insurance card all having the same vin#. I then put in what kind of machine I have and get three recalls. Happy days
