There is no date on the recall notice. After doing a bit of checking into a further, this recall is from October 1, 2004.

I had the throttle stick on my 2005 summit 800 ho Adrenaline in November of 2006. Possible cause moisture in the throttle cable, but I consiser that a vital part of the snowmobile that should work. No one got hurt but it went wide open across my yard and crashed. Called the dealership in Devils Lake, ND that had just serviced and I had just picked it up from the night before and they said I was on my own for compesation for the problem.
