38 • August 14, 2017 • Powersports Business ATV/UTV www.PowersportsBusiness.com Innovative solutions offer gun storage options Seizmik is gearing up for the hunting season with the introduction of four new products designed with the hunter in mind. UTV owners now have an option for carrying their guns in or on their vehicles without the need for modi- fication or compromise. The new line of Seizmik gun holders are easy to install and remove, and will protect guns and keep UTVs safe from scratches that occur when holder modification is required. They offer plenty of room for ammo and accessories. The ICOS (In Cab on Seat) Gun Holder ($149.99) easily installs in UTVs without the need for tools, using the seat belt. It keeps the muzzles of two guns pointed safely at the floor and is made from closed-cell foam that keeps the guns from being damaged or scratched. Nylon webbing and buckles ensure little to no noise when removing or storing the guns out in the field. The OHGR (Overhead Gun Rack) installs on the rollover protection structure of most UTVs and holds guns out of the way. It is made with premium materials, like glass- filled nylon and cast aluminum, and has three different configurations for the best possible attachment to the UTV. It features rubber- lined jaws that won't scratch or damage the guns and rubber straps that won't make any noise when removing or storing the guns. The OGHR retails for $149.99. The Armory SST (Secure Storage & Trans- port) Gun Case holds shotguns, rifles and ARs with or without optics, accommodat- ing almost any long gun up to 52 inches. Designed for quick access, it has movable foam inserts that hold the gun in place with- out contacting sights. It has a sliding hinge design that allows for use of both hands to get the gun as well as work on the gun as it is held securely in place. It has extra space inside the case for the storage of rounds and cleaning supplies. It requires the Armory X Rack (sold separately) to mount to UTV dump beds. The Armory SST retails for $199.99. The Armory X Rack is designed to hold two Armory SST Gun Cases (sold separately). It attaches to both sides of a UTV's dump bed and creates a rigid, strong base to keep the guns stable no matter how rough the trail is. The Armory X Rack retails for $159.99. PSB Seizmik reveals line of hunting accessories for UTVs Polaris Industries has recalled 25,600 Sports- man 570 ATVs and 1,160 RZR 570 ORVs. The Sportsman ATVs were recalled because fuel can leak into the headlight pod, posing a fuel leak and fire hazard.

POLARIS ISSUES RECALL OF 16,800 RZRS DUE TO FUEL LEAK Polaris issued a recall on approximately 16,800 RZR 170 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs), when it was found that the fuel tank neck can crack or the wiring harness can overheat or short circuit, posing fuel leak and fire hazards. This recall involves all model year 2015 through 2017 youth RZR 170 recreational off- highway vehicles (ROVs). The recalled ROVs have two seats and were sold in red, blue and white. For model year 2015 ROVs, "Polaris" is printed on the front grill, "RZR" is printed on the rear panel, and "170" is printed on the front panel.

POLARIS RECALLS 35,000 ATVS OVERSEAS Polaris Industries is recalling up to 35,000 ATVs in Australia, Europe and New Zealand because they may have violated bans on asbes- tos use in those countries, reported the Associ- ated Press. On June 19, Polaris announced the recall in Australia of a dozen different ATV models sold since Dec. 31, 2003, while the details of recalls in New Zealand and Europe are still being finalized. The report states that Polaris spokesman James Fuller says a supplier inadvertently pro- vided parts with asbestos to the company. A firm Polaris hired tested the parts and deter- mined they didn't represent a health risk. No recalls are expected in the United States and Canada because those countries don't ban asbestos in brake pads and other parts.
