SLX vs. SL 900. Which to buy???
I am looking at buying a project ski. I am currently looking at a 1996 SLX, and a 1996 SL 900. I have owned a 96 SLX and know quite a bit about them. However I know nothing about the SL 900. Other than the obvious motor size what are the differences? Are there any differences in the hulls, fuel systems, electronics, etc. Is there a top end speed or acceleration difference?
Thank you for any info provided!

Hopefully a moderator will move this into the correct section.
Many, Many, Many differences between the SLX780 and the 900.
780 (blue) is a Fuji engine, while the 900 (red) is a domestic. Nothing compatible between the 2.
900 makes more HP, and can be modified into a 1050cc with different cyls.
Both hulls would be the same.
Both jet pumps would be the same.
If I were you, I'd hold out and wait for a 1050 or 1200 project to come along.
