I'm guessing the "inserts" are what you had done...or did they put tanks in the 1st time ?? I've said all along that the insert wasn't going to work......Cat better be ready to do ALL the tanks instead of getting out easy with that chinsey insert !

Best of luck..let us know how it all tunrs out ...

dropped them off this morning, picked them tonight, new tanks installed on both sleds. no insert in them, they said new tanks don't need them, hope this is true. it was really good of dealer to do it right away. just check your tanks before you ride or drive 5 hours to ride, and keep some 'seal all' around just in case. they just did the inserts the first time.

Ok did you get the filler neck installed, or are you talking about getting a brand new tank installed and it cracked?

they put inserts in the tank neck the fist time (recall) and it still cracked, today they installed new tanks on both my f7&f6 with no inserts, they said new tanks are thicker now and don't need inserts, hope that explains it.

They put in a new tank in my 04 Sabercat 700. I noticed immediately that all the wires to the battery weren't reconnected, which I had to do myself, no big deal, but that isn't how I dropped it off. Then to my dismay, when I filled the tank with fuel and cranked it over, gas ran out all over the floor of my trailer. I called the dealer and they said bring it back...they wouldn't come pick it up to fix their mistake. Needless to say, I had trailered it to them twice just to get the new tank. I decided to fix the problem myself. They failed to reconnect the fuel line to the tank which is a simple fix, but just poor workmanship. I can't stand inept mechanics!!!!

haven't seen my machine since I towed mine and my friends back from the dealer and then over to his shop. They both had the tanks put in but his was the third time. He told me some bad news, when he walked passed the trailer the other day he said the machines were reaking of gas. He was in a rush didn't get a chance to look at them but we're guessing theres a lake in the belly pan in one or even both. I'm really not in the mood to drive 3 hours to Pennsylvania yet again for this bullS#@t. I just purchased the machine a month ago and was told all the updates were taken care of, like I said his was brought back 3x's for the tank thing. bang your head


When I actually check the machines out for myself I'll let you guys know what's going on
