    Fuel Baffle cross-referencing

    My 98GSXL needs a new fuel baffle p/n:
    275500469 (replaces 275500418

    I have found some on e-bay for a 97GSX and a 97GTX that might work along with a 96 GSX p/n
    275500318

    But none match my p/n. So I am wondering how different can they be? I believe the 97GSX and 98GSXL's are the same hull, same 15 gal tank, same pink wires etc.

    have any of you guys tried using a Fuel Baffle from another ski that did not match the OEM p/n?

    Thanks,


    Gary

    All limited models (with a 951 engine) use a different baffle than non limited models. Limiteds have 5/16 fuel supply nipples and non limited use 1/4 inch.You should repair yous as there is primarily thre things that can go wrong.

    Thanks Benz for saving me some $$.

    I repaired mine last night but have not installed it yet.

    A couple of issues arrised:

    1) I cut the opening with the soldier tool, and the fuse was on the other side, so I had to cut the other side too.

    2) I don't have a plastic welder or one of those cool soldier tool with the smoothing plate. used the soldier tool with the zip-ty melting it made a raised surfice like a weld that a 5 yr old might do--it wasn't pretty.

    So now with both sides all cobbed up when I went to put it back in (I didn't take it out did not realize the tight fit) I questioned weather it would fit. So I filed some of the "weld" down now exposing some gaps again.

    Frustrated I used some JBweld

    So before I put this cobbed up unit back in do I need to worry if there are other small leaks in those areas?

    btw removing the fuse and soldiering worked great! What is that fuse for anyway?
    Will I cause damage by not having it?

    Should I install an external fuse?

    Thanks for the help,
    Gary
