Default Fuel tank filler neck cracked 2010 M8

Just noticed a crack below the gas cap threads.

I always made sure to never overtighten the cap and I never supported the gas station filler nozzle/handle on the tank while filling with fuel.

Figured I’d never have an issue because I was very careful. WRONG

Now, I haven’t seen a post on this in a while but a few years ago some people were saying Arctic Cat was replacing bad tanks for free or minimal cost.

Does anyone have any recent experience with this?

It was available for the firecats and they will still repair them to this day, but I'm not sure about the M's. you might have to call your dealer about that one

Had mine replaced a few years ago for the same reason. Call your dealer. They did mine and a riding buddy’s at the same time for free no questions asked. I think it was a safety recall. Arctic cat had to replace a bunch of m-series tanks

Thanks guys. I will call today.

Any good temporary fix ideas until I can get a new tank?

Not sure what the tank is made of.

Current ideas:
JB weld told me this via email:
The J-B Plastic Bonder is made specifically for polypropylene and polyethylene plastics. The same type of plastic you are trying to repair. The product numbers are 50133 and 50139. You will need to be able to roughen up all surface areas before you apply the product.

J-B Weld Support

Ph: 903.885.7696 | Fx: 903.885.5911


or
loctite plastic bonder
or
VersChem fuel tank epoxy
or
other ideas?

Coldfinger, Fortunately neither my '10 M8 nor my '11 Crossfire tank necks have cracked yet. I did however talk with an unfortunate sled owner in West Yellowstone last winter on a sledding vacation that had a cracked filler neck on his sled, who was in the shop ordering a new tank. He was also a autobody mechanic by trade and told me that at his shop at home, he could empty & dry the tank and fix it with a "plastic welder"! Based on that info, you may want to check out that option at a good autobody shop for a faster fix. Also a poster back in 2016 on Arctic Chat used PRC 1826 B1/4 aircraft sealant while waiting for his replacement tank.

I am pickup up some J-B Weld today and dealer is checking with Arctic Cat to see how much if any they will cover toward a new tank.

I am going to get the 50139 or 50133 and hopefully there is a black option.

There are multiple posts on Arctic Chat.com concerning the cracked filler necks on Crossfires & M's. It seems the good dealers get AC to cover the cost of a replacement tank, but most posters had to pay labor for the install or do it themselves!

Just noticed the same thing on my 2009 M-8 that barely gets used only 600 miles. Replacement from Arctic Cat is in the mail replaced by my awesome dealer and parts lady Michelle. Same crack near the threads. No cost to me but I don`t have a dealer close so will have to install myself. So not sure if Arctic Cat would pay to have it installed or not but would think they would.
