View Full Version : 96 Spx Vts

04-05-08, 08:32 PM
Hi, I picked up a 96 SPX with bad VTS - motor, housing...the works all shot. Does anyone know if any of the other models VTS are interchangable with mine. The 95 XP and 96 SPX share the same trim. I was wondering if any others would work (possibly newer, more reliable??).

Yes, your model is interchangable with a couple other years......
P/N for the VTS motor is: 278000616
Used in the 1996 GSX, SPX, and the XP.
Used in the 1997 GS, GSI, GSX, SP, SPX, XP.
Used in the 98 GSX Limited, SPX, XP Limited.
Let me know if I can help any further.
BTW, that motor will run you in the range of $185 bucks brand new.:cheers:

Thanks! How 'bout the housing... hook up to the vts guage OK from a different model?

Nope, sorry, the housing is specific to that year and model only.
P/N 278000509 and replacement cost for about $227.:ack:

Your welcome. I'd normally close a thread when it seems to have a successful ending.....but in the event you find another part of the VTS you may need an answer on, I'll leave it open for another week or so.
