Fixed the Fuel tank issue w/o a lawsuit
« on: October 21, 2017, 12:12:01 PM »
So I had one of the Fuel tanks with the leaking issue, tried to do some stuff myself to fix it to no avail. I ended up contacting Mike at Alliance who seemed a little odd on the phone however worked with me to get the issue resolved covering all costs :D to replace the fuel tank (New tank +labor at the closest authorized SYM dealer). I was a bit surprised being that it was a 2012 and I just contacted him a couple months ago (Aug 2017)...I just picked up my HD200 today with the new tank, its really nice to ride with a full tank and not have fuel splashing all over! Anyways, I'd recommend contacting them if you have the same issue even if it is a bit of an older machine....

I thought parts were impossible to find in the US? ;-). Good job Kokines and Mike@SYM!

Kokines, you have good luck sir! I've also had to get a new tank because of the same problem as so many others on this site, but paid my dealer, Scooter Dynasty, I think it was $210, for the tank and labor. Even so, with the new tank, the odor is still present, and whenever I fill it up, the smell of gas is very strong, even outside, and especially in closed areas... my garage might spontaneously combust someday after a fill-up. I usually use my side kick stand to park, but if I use the center stand, the gas vapors are less noticeable.
