    please help me figure this out?

    hello all im new to this forum and new to pwc's as well i have a question for all you polaris guys out there. I bought a polaris jet ski a few days ago, and im trying to figure out what model it is. Its VIN plate on the back ends in 92 so its a 1992 ski, through my research i came to a conclusion that it was a SL 650. but when i searched for some photos of 1992 sl 650's i found that the ones i saw had there gas filler caps on the front nose in the center. on my ski its on the right side of the nose about 2 feet back from the tip of the nose. and i also noticed my fuel shut off switch is on the right side as well just under the steering bars on the right side. does this sound like a sl 650? or something else? i also have a problem with the bucket in the back not turning left. is this just the steering cable that needs to be replaced? i tried adjusting the couplers on boths ends and it still doesnt turn left. i want to know the exact model so i can order the parts. does anyone know where i can get a new lcd screen for it? i also noticed while searching for a air filterfor a sl 650 that it doesnt look like it would fit my ski. my discriptions may not be good enough so if you would like i could email photos of the skis various parts. thank you very much.

    post some pics of the engine compartment, the hull, the nose and the bucket area.

    You could have a hybrid machine.

    VIN ending in 92 is a 92 model year, but I don't recall the 650 having a digital gauge in 92

    the 750's came with the mfd screen.. in 92 i believe there was only the 650 but i could be wrong.. pics will help members on here figure this out.. my old 94 sl650 only had a fuel gauge and and the gas filler was on the nose.. the newer bodys have the filler on the side.. i think this started in 97.. my 97 1050 is on the side.. i hate too say this but you might have bought something that was the vin tampered with if you cant post them on here for some pm them too me

    There should be another VIN plate under the battery. Make sure they match.

    What color is the engine
    How many cylinders does it have


    IS the LCD screen oval or round?

    Look for :

    Seat Shape
    Hull Shape
    Handlebar location and angle
    filler location
    graphics/color scheme

    let us know, once we know what you really have, we can help
