Arctic Cat Recall: 2008 Arctic Cat 50cc and 90cc ATV

On Tuesday, Arctic Cat issued a voluntary recall for certain models of their 2008 Arctic Cat 50cc and 90cc Youth Model ATV due to a product defect which could cause the driver to lose control of the ATV and crash.

UPDATED RECALL INFORMATION 6/26/2008: Additional Youth ATV recalls were announced by Kawasaki and KYMCO for similar problems which could cause loss of speed control.

The speed controller can fail to return to the idle position when the throttle lever is released, or it could fail to be idle when the vehicle is started. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Arctic Cat urge owners to stop using their vehicle and contact their local dealer to arrange repairs at no charge.
