For Arctic Cat, the speed controller on the sporty 2008 DVX 50 and DVX 90 and utility 2008 50 and 90 could fail to be at idle on start up, which could result in loss of vehicle control.

For Kawasaki, about 6,000 2008 KFX 50 and KFX 90 youth ATVs have been recalled because the throttle can fail to return to the idle position when released or could fail to be at idle on start-up, which could result in loss of vehicle control.
