    stock intake grate

    Can someone post a picture or give me a link to what a stock intake grate on a 96 SL780 looks like? I have a feeling mine is not stock but I want to make sure. It says R&D on it..

    I didn't know about that thread. I just knew if he had an R&D Plate is wasn't stock. It looks to me that you would probably get a little better performance out of the aftermarket plates.

    R&D wasn't stock on a SL 780. It WAS on a SLX 780.

    That pic Top cop posted is the stocker for a SL.

    Wasn't the one I posted stock on the SLT also? It is the exact same one I have on there now. I grabbed this one as a replacement. The one on my ski now has too much crud on it from salt water. I was just going to sandblast it and repaint it but I got a good deal on this one new.

    Awesome. Looks like I got an aftermarket plate.
    I havent been able to test out the ski yet but my brother-in-law said that it goes 60mph. In the top speed thread I seen most sl780's at around 54. Is it possible that the intake grate and an extended plate would make that much of a difference?
    I guess it could just be the speedo that is off too. I plan on taking my GPS when I take it out.

    That would be a good idea to get an accurate idea. The Dream-O-Meter sometimes fibs. If you paint it red, it will go faster. stickers work too.

    An R and D grate is a good one to have on your ski!

    That was the stocker for any Polaris 92-95, and many many more after that.

    Some came stock with a R&D version like the PRO 785 and SLX 780.
