We have just received a note from Arctic Cat regarding the 2006 M7 models within a VIN range of 4UF06SNW96T111797 – 4UF06SNW06T112997 and the 2006 Crossfire models within the VIN range of 4UF06SNW46T113280 – 4UF06SNW26T115934.
According to Arctic Cat, â€œDue to the unforeseen circumstances, Gas Tank Neck Extension (p/n 1670-801) was not available during the production of the above models; consequently, some of the affected snowmobiles were shipped without the extension installed.â€
Of the two Crossfire models we had last season, one had this installed and one did not. It appears the white plastic â€œsleeveâ€ keeps you from filling the gas tank to the top, the purpose being to keep fuel from dribbling out of the vented gas cap. It also reduces the amount of fuel that can be added to the fuel tank.
If your sled falls within these VIN numbers, your Dealer should contact you to install this piece.
