Thread: Tank recall

    Tank recall

    Are/have any of you had the gas tank recall done? Dealeship just called to say I'm next in line if I'd like to take care of it. My questions are, if it's not broken, why fix it. I don't use an aerosol spray on engine. I use fluid film. And my next concern is, when the engines come out, is everything going back to the same tolerance. Are they going to "find" something they think needs changing/fixing? I've had no issues in my 2 seasons.

    My sentiments exactly!

    The ONLY reasons I would do this recall is if you smell gas in the hull (obviously) or if your turbo oil lines are corroded badly. The only way to replace the oil lines to the turbo is by removing the engine, so let the recall pay for that labor and have the lines swapped while the engine is out.

    I've smelled gas in my engine compartment (not that strong and after it's been closed for long periods) since it was new (07 non turbo)...never been an issue. Also never used cleaner on the tank, only crc-56 on the metal engine and hull components on occasion.
    Think I'm going to pass on the change out...seems like the risk of other problems is greater than the risk of the tank cracking.

    Just had mine done, took them 2 days. It's worth the peace of mind. It's nice to know everything is resolved and plus the whole ski gets looked at in the process. Makes you aware of any possible issues that need attention.

    For anyone that has had it done: Is the gas smell after the ski has been closed for a few days any different?

    I am deciding if I want to have the recall done or not on both of my 2007's. I have only used CRC-56. They have been perfect to this point.

    the shop that i called said they would warranty anything they think was damaged by honda
