INDIANAPOLIS — More than 4,000 off-road vehicles are being recalled because they can have a damaged fuel tank that could cause fuel to leak. This poses fire and explosion hazards.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall involves Wolverine RMAX off-road side-by-side vehicles sold by Yamaha dealers nationwide from February through July in 2021. The vehicles were sold for between $22,700 and $26,700.
The recall was initiated after Yamaha received two reports of the fuel tanks being assembled incorrectly. There were no incidents of fuel leakage, and no injuries have been reported.

The vehicles were sold in silver, white, black, yellow, gray and blue. The model name Wolverine RMAX is printed on the right and left sides of the vehicles. The model number is located on top of the airbox. The CPSC said the Vehicle Identification Number can be found on the vehicle frame behind the left rear wheel.
