    There was a recall. Contact Polaris, or a local Polaris dealer.

    If your HIN number shows the 2003 recall was never done, then Polaris may still be required to do something.

    Service Bulletin 2202879 - Hood Tether Kit 1998-2001 SLH, SLX, Pro 1200

    The problem was the plastic hinge would fail, allowing the front of the hood to lift up. If you are moving fast enough, the wind can catch the hood and force it into the rider's face with force.

    There was an expensive lawsuit about this a few years back. Polaris lost.

    The actual recall fix was to add a metal flex cord to the front of the hood, preventing it from flying up when the hinge itself fails.

    I also got hit in the face by mine. Its not gonna be an easy find, but keep your eyes open. Eventually something will come up.
