    Bought a trailer and got two free skis

    Went and picked up a single trailer for my "new to me SL 750" this past weekend. The owner then gave me his two Polaris jet skis. A '95 SLT 750 with the motor in pieces and a '96 SL 780 that just needs the bendix replaced.

    I'm thinking I will part out whats left of the SLT 750. Then again, putting the 780 motor in the SLT might be cool.

    Thoughts???

    The SLT will give you a nice 2 up ski,and also a real playful one when riding single or in rough water.

    Keep the slt and put the 780 motor in it! there a blast to ride, fun fun fun, no sponsons! 360's 180's sliding around long glass like turns!, it's a riot. heres mine! Congrats on both skis and a trailer! woohoo! Put the bendix from the slt in the 780, it will fit perfect! Then your good to go. just replace the fuel lines, axe the auto cock and put a triple fuel pump in it and a gas cap update !.

    If I can get the "no title" situation cleaned up on the slt then an engine swap to get it on the lake is in the cards.

    Picked up the second jet ski of the "free deal" today. The SL 780 hull has a lot more "shore rash" than the SLT 750 hull. So out comes the 780 motor to be cleaned up and serviced this winter before it goes into the SLT hull. Looks like I also have a way to get the SLT titled into Texas so it's bonified


    I think I will part out what is left of the SL 780 hull. I just tested the oval MFD and it is dead, rats. I do have a set of 750 jugs w/pistons bored .5mm over from the deal.

    The 96 780 hull is way better than the sl 750, I would keep the 780 together and get it running well, then put your 750 motor in the slt.
    My point is that the slx 780 is a much better ski than the sl 750, unless you like the porpoising, I find it kinda embarassing
