Fuel tank recall

I have a 2004 T660 Turbo that I have discovered the fuel tank is cracked on the top at the filler neck just like the Firecats and Sabercats from 2003 to 2006. Anyone else have the same issue? I thought at first It was just the cap leaking, but the dealer let me know it is a known issue on the fuel tanks from that time frame, just my sled is not on the recall list.

Wife's 06 sabercat 500 lx and neighbor's 04 sabercat 600 both had the filler neck crack.
Both were covered under the gas tank recall, but if the dealer did it, you had to pay for labor.

So did you pay the dealer to do it or did you install the tanks yourself?

I paid the dealer at the time.
Also took the time to go over the sled since we just purchased it used and it was Jan.
I think it was 70-100
If I had the time, it doesn't look too hard to do.
I replaced the F6 and fuel pump under recall. Just a matter of taking it all apart, draining the gas, pull it and put it back together

tank fuel neck cracks Crossfires

Just had two 2009 Crossfire 800 Sno Pro sleds with cracked necks. One would leak profusely when full which alerted me and low and behold the other sled had a crack.

Took them to the dealer and both were replaced and installed free of charge.

Made my day after being upset about finding the cracks!

Cracked tank

I had a 2009 arctic cat m8 sno pro and mine did the same thing. Arctic cat went good for the tank but I had to pay for the installation at the dealership. I was told that the dealer had to install the tank under the warranty claim. If you have any issues with your dealer contact Arctic cat head office.

You should have never paid for labour on Sabrecats. I just got mine replaced 10 days ago. I paid nothing.

Mine has been replaced twice. No cost. Your dealer screwed you if you paid labor on a recall.
