    Slt X?? 1050??

    http://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/boa/1683651006.html

    So the SLT hull can have a 1050 motor in it? Does the SLTX have different motor mounts in the hull?

    How does one fit a 1050 into a 1996 SLT??

    '95 was the last year of the SLT 750. In '96 they had the SLTx (1050) and the SLT 700 and SLT 780.


    I believe the mounts are the same, but there are many other things that would have to be swapped. Probably not worth it. You can find a decent SLTx pretty cheap if you're patient. I bought mine for $500 with a bad crank. I have no more than $1100 total in to it right now and that's with a new crank, bored jugs and new pistons.

    I've got a 1996 SLT 780 with a toasted fuji motor in it. I'll keep my eye out for a SLTX, but it just seems like if I'm going to have to do the motor rebuild anyway, I might as well bump it up to the 1050 or the 1200.

    I thought the Fuji motors and domestic motors had different mounts? I wonder Polaris got the 1050 into that SLT Hull.

    Anyone else know?

    Anybody know if it is just a different motor/bed plate for the SLTX. I'm wondering if I get the SLTX plate if it will fit in the SLT?

    Thanks

    I have SLTX bed plates and can measure distance between motor mounts if you want me to.
