    Hi, I recently bought a 2001 Polaris XC SP 500, it isn’t an edge. I’ve read online and found that it should be around a 10 gallon gas tank but I can only fill it to be a 5 gallon tank. Is the gauge really wrong or does it have a 5 gallon tank? I just can’t seem to find any information on the tank size.

    Do you have a picture of your sled. Sounds like someone swapped out the original tank with a race sled gas tank which is a lot smaller.

    That's a stock tank should be about 12 gallon. Where you filling it from empty when you only got 5 gallons in it? If someone changed out the gas cap gauge with a aftermarket one not a polaris oem one they dont read right becuase of the tappered tank.

    part # 2521495
    dealer can get them about $50.00, Amazon has one $47.00 free shipping, try to avoid ebay they sell mostly aftermarket serch ( Polaris 2521495). make sure it says OEM look at the gauge face.
