    2 Piece Oil Tank Replacement

    Hey guys....I am going to replace the famous leaking 2 piece oil tanks on two of my skis, a 2000 GTX Millennium Edition and a 2001 GTX. I have a few questions before i purchase the tanks and was hoping you could help.

    1. Are the tanks the same for both the 2000 and the 2001? I can find one that says its for the 2001 year but nothing comes up when i look for a 2000, but i assume they are the exact same from looking at them. The one i was looking to buy was in the link below.....do you think this would work for both years and is this a good one?

    2. Are there any grommets or gaskets i need to buy to put on the new tank? Im wondering if here is anything i need to put on at the bottom of the new tank or does the dispensing piece just pull out of the old tank and go into the new tank? Will i need to buy any clips for the hoses?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    You can buy a new 2 peice oil tank, but I believe it will also eventually leak at seam. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks guys.

    Bought a plastic welder from Harbor Freight for $16 and welded around the seam. Taped off the bottom hole, filled with water and I still had a couple leaks. I marked them, went back and welded those spots again, filled with water and no leaks! Saved me $100 and the same type of tank leaking again in a year.

    Easy to do as well.

    Tanks are all the same. I would replace the rubber grommet on the bottom & the one on the top to do it right.

    New ones dont usually leak for a few years. Or say f uck it & go premix.
