Finally a Recall(Exhaust)

Well just released today the official recall on our XP1000s and the 850s from Polaris.Probably too late for a lot of you guys.
Polaris Recalls Sportsman 850 and 1000 All-Terrain Vehicles Due to Burn and Fire Hazards | Polaris Industries
Mine was done last month because it burned the gasket and melted the plastics, so I think I'm good but I'll be calling the dealer tomorrow to make sure it all matches.

I will call today to make sure but I believe they did it to mine.

It was a new exhaust updated, new exhaust springs, gasket, improved heat shields, plastic shield over the side, relays.

I posted a pic of the work order on the exhaust heat poll.

Anxious to see what this all involves, but I'm guessing it's just the springs/gasket, and more shielding thing?

I'm in good shape with my Power Commander, but I've been considering coating the exhaust and would actually like to ditch the goofy shaped muffler. I wonder if any of the mounts changed for 2017 and if the 2017 stock exhaust would fit?

I've actually been wondering that myself because I like the clean look of the 2017 exhaust.

I'm going back in forth on getting a hmf or not because I hate the look of the 2015 stock exhaust but I like how it is quiet but still have a deep tone

Nice! It's about damn time. Got the email just a few minutes ago. Going to call the dealer as soon as they open and get it scheduled. Thankfully I haven't had any melting plastic, but I definitely had glowing exhaust. It'll be interesting to see what changes.
