Arctic Cat released a service recall for the XTZ's. They put the voltage regulator screws in backwards which is causing the screws to wear holes in the battery. Here is a copy of the text of the bulletin for those of you that aren't able to make it back to the dealer to have it done.

Date: January 9, 2009 Product Line: UTV
Bulletin No: 2009-6-02 Subject: Voltage Regulator Mounting Screws
Affected Models: All 2009 Prowler XTZ within the VIN range of 305109-305693.

What is the reason for this notice?
It has been determined that the machine screws securing the voltage regulator are improperly installed
and need to be reversed.

Condition: Both machine screws securing the voltage regulator to the battery box were
installed incorrectly which may cause the battery to leak acid.

Solution: Reverse both machine screws according to the instructions in this bulletin.
What should you do?

Warranty: A labor allowance of 0.2 hr will be paid per affected UTV.
Instructions:
1. Remove both seats and center console; then disconnect the ECU from the main harness. Remove battery box
cover and battery. Retain all hardware.
2. Remove both machine screws securing the voltage regulator to the battery box; then install voltage regulator
making sure machine screws are installed from the top. Tighten securely.
3. Install battery; then connect the main harness to the ECU.
4. Install center console and both seats.

I checked my battery and there are no screws into the battery box. I can see where if you put a bigger batttery in there that the chance of contact would occur,but I don't see anything that would be able to rub the battery now.

It is under the battery, you have to remove the battery to see them and move them.

ok i went back and took seat liner out again just to see if the screws were sticking into my battery. They are not,they are in properly installed so i guess that the bulletin only pretains to a portion of the XTZs.
