:doh: My brothers sled same as mine is about to have his done a third time way to go poo. I hope the third tank holds up. I think with a hot summer in a garage is not enough ventalation plus a bad desinge.
Mine's gotta go in for the recall soon too. Can anyone get me the part number for a clear tank?? I was thinking about paying the difference to have the tank replaced with a clear one instead. Is there even a cost difference between clear and black tanks?? :dunno:
I TOOK MY TANK OFF AND TOOK IT TO MY DEALER AND HE SAID I DIDNT NEED TO TAKE IT OFF, HE WAS GOING TO GIVE ME THE RECALL AND I WOULD PUT IT ON. HE SAID IT WAS A RUBBER PIECE THAT SLIDES OVER THE NECK. :dunno: BUT THEY ARE ON BACK ORDER. DONT TAKE HIS WORD FOR IT, HE IS KIND OF A NO NOTHING.
i have a 2004 prox 700 and a 2005 SS. neither are in recall to best of my knowledge. per Poo website. anyway i did cross thread the cap way to many times. lucky it was during day and i could see gas spitting all over side of tank .
i did 3 recalls on 04 proxs,04 proxr 800 very easy install takes about 5 minutes,you apply a primer to the filler neck and new insert,let them dry,install the instant loctite,puch insert into neck it snaps inplace,then hold into position for 2 minutes and remove the installation tool,very easy,simple,makes filler neck smaller on the inside dia. approx. 1/4 inch,looks fine
My dealer told me some are getting new tanks while some are getting the retrofit. What determines what you get?? He didn't indicate that the tank would neccessarily need to be cracked for a replacement. :dunno:
dealer ran my vin's on puter. no polaris recall on my 04 pro x 700 nor my 2005 SS. only 2004 had issues per dealer? i would assume all the 04 prox have same tank ????? how about prox 2. is that tank different?
mine may have been a late build? somewhere i saw a list of sleds affected. maybe on this forum? or another? list was provided by polaris. i believe the 2004 prox 700 was not on list. my vin was run and no recalls at all on it. all my dealer sells is polaris sleds atvs and cycles. they would know!
