The following report is filed with the NHTSA:
Report Receipt Date:November 20, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V777000
Component(s): Electrical system, lighting
Potential Number of Units Affected: 9,182
Manufacturer: Polaris Industries, Inc.
THE RECALL: Polaris Industries, Inc. (Polaris) is recalling certain model year 2015 to 2016 Slingshot motorcycles manufactured from April 21, 2014 to October 22, 2015, Slingshot SL motorcycles manufactured from April 28, 2015 to October 23, 2015, and Slingshot SL SE motorcycles manufactured from December 15, 2014, to October 22, 2015. In the affected motorcycles, the headlight relay may fail and result in a loss of headlights.
WHAT COULD HAPPEN: A loss of headlights can reduce driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin December 4, 2015. Owners may contact Slingshot customer service at 1-855-863-2284. Polaris' number for this recall is SLI-15-05.
