Arctic cat recall

It was brought to my attention (tc1) that cat has stepped up to the plate and has issued an across the board recall on all 2008 and early 09 front diffs. If your not the original owner call the toll free number in the link.
If you are the original owner expect a letter from cat.

Good to hear. Every time I ride I was always worried it would just let out and I would end up flying over the handlebars straight into a tree...

Safety Alert Notice
October 3, 2014

Dear Arctic Cat ATV Owner,

RE: Specific 2008 and 2009 ATV models

Our records indicate that you are a registered owner of at least one of the affected ATV’s.

What is the reason for this notice?
Internal components within the front gearcase do not meet Arctic Cat standards and must be replaced. If the internal components were to fail while operating the vehicle, the front gearcase could lock up and possibly result in property damage, personal injury, or death.

What should I do?
Stop operating your ATV immediately! Please contact an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealership as soon as possible and make arrangements to have this very important service work completed. This service will be done at no charge to you. If you have sold the affected ATV, please contact the new owner concerning this very important matter.

We apologize for this inconvenience; however, we have taken this action in the interest of your safety and continued satisfaction of our products.

If you have any questions concerning this notice, call Arctic Cat at 1-800-279-6851.
Sincerely,
Product Service and Warranty

There are 3 different kits, because of the different gear ratio's used.

The kit will include the ring gear (its part of the front diff) and will require the dealer to remove the front gearcase from the machine, and replace the diff inside of it.

Thanks for posting this info.
I am a 2nd owner of a 2009 550H1 EFI. Just called the Canada toll free # and was told mine was made after the serial #'s that were recalled so mine is OK.
Be interested to know how many dealers would contact the 2nd owner to inform them. In my instance the Cat was bought new from the same dealer as I bought it from. The original owner traded it in for a new cat with power steering.
