    At my dealer today having seal put in Angle Drive and Svc Mngr told me there was a recall in the works
    to fix the radio problem caused by the camera so they are replacing the camera. He said he'd call when
    he gets some in and it was about a 20 min job.

    Beats me as I don't listen to the radio anyway, but have read some posts talking about poor reception or whatever.

    Just had the break in service done on my 2016.5 SL and I was told the same thing. Back up camera, angle drive seal, and a new infotainment center due to a boot up problem all being replaced / repaired free and under warranty.

    Finally!

    ...now if they'd figure out a solution to the freaky final-drive bearings--backing up and hearing "...snap...snap...snap...POP...snap..." is not normal. Claiming it is "on the Slingshot" is like this guy claiming he's normal:

    Checked with my dealer this am, they have my sling in for some other goodies- here is the reply,

    I checked your unit when I got notification of this recall and it turns out its not a unit wide recall just a select series of vin numbers. We had a new turbo silver one in here that needed it as well. Looking into yours the recall does not apply to your unit

    Funny thing is that if it's true, they have failed to post the recall as required on the national data list as of last night. The only recalls for the 2015 is the headlights, roll bars and steering rack

    I was in the dealership when they got the recall and it applied to my SS I got last month. I just pick it up and the radio and camera problem is fixed.

    I have seen a couple of posts concerning this but did not realize it was an actual recall item until I came home today to find that Polaris has recalled The Back-up Camera on my 2016 SL LE I'm scheduled for an oil change this coming week anyway, so I may as well take care of that too and get more reception out of my radio

    Wish they would put a recall on the 2015 so I could get reception.
