    polaris 750 versas a pro 785?

    I have a non running pro atm (working on getting it on water) my son got a 94 750 over the weekend.So my question is will the 750 even come close in comparison? From what ive read and saw in videos it wont,please give me your input. He got a super good deal on it it has dead cylinder but for $200 he couldnt pass it up...

    No comparison. I have a 95-sl-750 with all the upgrades, it is a fun ski, that uses regular fuel, and you can ride all day on one tank full,
    I find myself using it more that the racing pro and the pro 785 stocker I have,
    Don't get me wrong I love the Pro's,the pro's are fast and quick on the turns and are great skis,

    +1 No comparison as far as speed and acceleration goes, but having said that I love to ride the 94 sl650 and I have overall more fun on it than the pro785

    Drag race, NO (785 does 63 MPH and gets there fast. 750 does 48 )

    Playfulness, NO (750 can do donuts, tail slides, and wave jumps extremely well, 785 will kill you if you try the donuts)

    Fuel consumption, NO (750 will burn half as much fuel as the 785 in the same amount of distance. Will take much less time getting there though)

    The Pro can turn a 180 at 40 mph instantly, sl cant even come close.
    the sl is great on gas, the Pro is out in under 2 hours.
    Pro uses premium and the sl 87
    parts a plenty for the sl pro is pricey
    sl porposies in rough water. pro rips right thru
    pro has a deep v hull, sl's is a modified v
    pro is 3 inches longer, weigh about the same
    if you ride a sl first, youll be able to handle a pro very easily
    pro sounds like a nhra drag car, sl sounds like a jetski.lol
    pro has 140hp, sl has 80 hp
    pro has sponsons for tight turning, sl doesnt.although you can install a set on them
    ive had both, both fun and both have thier goods and bads.
