No difference, I assume. The recall states the intake duct can contact the fuel line, causing a leak which poses a fire hazard.

I think what he means is that only the 2-up and 6x6 models are recalled, so where is the difference between those and the 1+up models that aren't recalled. If it's fuel line related, the engine are fuel tank are in the same location on all models, correct?

My guess is that there is a difference in the frame. a cross member in a slightly different location maybe. or any number of other small difference. Possibly the engine is in a slightly different location to account for the longer frame and use the same engines/trans.

Recall

I got the recall letter today for my 2015 570SP Touring. The letter states

"Model year 2014-2016 Sportsman 570 Touring / UTE / X2 models and 2017 Sportsman 570 6X6 models were manufactured with an air box intake snorkel that may come in contact with the fuel rail or fuel line during operation. The resulting contact between the snorkel and the fuel rail or fuel line may cause a fuel leak that may pose at fire hazard".

I have not had time yet to look at my 570 to see the issue. I plan to look at it over the next few days to see if I can see exactly what the letter is talking about. If anyone already has pictures that would be great.

no pictures but i hve the same bike as you (2016) and my air intake is definitely rubbing, easy to see when you pop off the seat and the intake cover.

Ok, so here are the pictures of mine.

First remove the seat.



Then remove the air box.



Then look closely for rubbing. Fuel Line Recall-img_3980.jpg

They said if there is no rub marks then they only need to install a bar to protect it. If there is rubbing, as is visible in on mine, they need to add the bar, then replace the rail and maybe the air box.

Well I checked mine out today. I only had some very minor rubbing on the bottom side of the air box snorkel. Didn't see any effect on the fuel line components. I still will take it in sometime soon to have the dealer do the bracket modification.
