Has anyone received a recall letter from Polaris on the 2009-2010 Sportsman 550/850? I received one today and the recall is about "the steering knuckle having an oversized ball joint stem mounting hole and/or improperly tightened steering knuckle pinch bolts that could cause a reduction in the clamp force required to retain the ball joint stem in the steering knuckle".I had this problem a couple of months ago and I made a few comments to the dealer and Polaris about it lol and finally they went through with the recall.What it boils down to is the ball joints will eventually fall out of the hub/steering knuckle and could be very dangerous.So check your front end parts before you ride and if the ball joints seem loose,then take the atv to the dealer and it will be fixed under the recall and hopefully your dealer wont have it for a month like my dealer had mine.
