M8 Gas Tank fitment

The threads on my 2011 M8 Sno Pro gas tank are busted since someone must have tightened down the gas cap wrong. I don't see any option on how to fix it besides purchasing a new gas tank.

I keep looking on eBay and I find gas tanks for the 2008 - 2010 M8, but nothing for the 2011. Will these tanks work with a 2011? They seem 100 percent identical to each other, but they do have different part numbers.

I appreciate any advice!

The tanks are the same. Go to your local dealer and give him your vin number. This was a warranty issue and most likely AC will send you a tank for free and pay for the dealer to install it. I have two tanks sitting in my shop just in case mine does the same thing.

Tjcatman, you believe they’re more or less giving them away? I haven’t tried yet, but I don’t generally have good luck getting free stuff.

I have an 09 Snopro I just bought used that has this problem.

cat had a epa recall and many have been replaced 10+ years out and if your dealer doesn't get it done for you it's on their side.

Cat covered my 2010 M8 tank last season when it cracked just below the filler neck threads.

Thanks guys! My dealer said they would replace it once they get one in stock (mid October or so). Supposedly they’re backordered.

I asked if they needed to install it, or if I could, and he said they needed to I still it. Doesn’t matter that much, I would just have liked to don’t it. Oh well.

Where about is it on the AC site? I tried the dealer for my 2011 HCR and they said that there was no recall. I'll try the AC site directly if I can find it. Mine is cracked at the bottom of the neck below the threads as well.

While the 11 isnt specifically listed, arctic cat will prob still do it. Got a tank for my 11 pro last yr. Have your dealer submit a recall with your vin and they'll accept or deny. I installed mine but dealer wanted the old tank back. Prob billed ac for labor. 😃Its an easy swap even though the new tank isn't exactly the same.
