    Yes...all you need is the MFD unit and a wire harness with the plug. I am doing this exact thing to one of my SL650's probably on Monday. I have heard that the round MFD's will fit the hole where the stock fuel gauge is...I will find out for sure Monday.

    Yes, quite easy to do. Hardest part is getting the wires into the elec box.

    You'll need a good MFD.

    Wire harness

    Pitot if you want the speedometer

    Round MFD don't have trim indicators, so it works well with 650. Unless you plan on installing trim, then you'll want the oval.


    I've got the harness and a pitot. The MFD (round) is a little hard to read, so I'll throw that in if you're interested. $20 plus shipping.

    Dang Kevin, that's a great price! If Polarisnewbee doesn't want it let me know.... I could give it a good home.

    You already have one........

    You want the oval MFD, and make sure the harness has the wires for the trim. (SLT harnesses are different from SL's)

    I thought the harnesses would have been the same. It would be nice to have a trim indicator....if I install trim. Still haven't decided between power trim or a drop nozzle on the Sleeper. Probably will end up with the power trim, then I can trim UP for playing around!

    Yes the round MFD does install where the gas guage was. I installed a Polaris MFD kit on one of my SL700.

    For the oil level to read, you will need a sending unit from a craft that has a MFD. The stock sender is just an on/off switch (when oil level dropped-sounded warning buzzer)

    SLT (round MFD) harness has longer wires, and doesn't have the 2 for the trim.

    An older SL 750 (round MFD) harness wouldn't have trim wires either. It used the mechanical pointer indicator.

    To add as I just did this to my 94 SL650, You will also need an oil tank from craft that had the MFD as the different sender wont fit in the hole in the current tank.
