ARGO has recalled about 500 Xplorer all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) because fuel may overflow and catch on fire.
The problem is that “incorrectly installed check valves and vent hoses can lead to fuel overflow,” according to the recall notice.
No injuries were reported, but ARGO said it received 2 reports of fuel overflow incidents, including one fire.
The recall involves ARGO Xplorer XR 500 and XRT 500 ATVs in model years 2020 through 2021.
ARGO also recalled the XR 570, and XRT 570 ATVs in model years 2021 through 2023.

ARGO is asking consumers to immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact an authorized dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair of the fuel system.
“The dealer will perform an inspection of the vent system, re-route and extend the vent hose, and install a fuel neck insert,” according to the recall.
