Polaris Industries, Inc., is recalling certain 2017-2018 Polaris Slingshot, Slingshot SL, Slingshot SLR, Slingshot SL Icon, and Slingshot GT LE motorcycles due to possible brake failure issues.

The recall announcement says that the brake pedals may have been incorrectly installed, allowing the brake pedal to separate from the brake master cylinder.
