    Need Polaris SL Parts

    I have a 1997 SL 780 and I need a waterbox and the large U-Shaped Exhaust Hose.

    I can use the waterbox and hose from other years and models so please if you have anything close to this please let me know. 1995 650 anything.

    I am in Windsor Ontario and I can can travel into Michigan as well.

    Thanks for looking.

    In '97, Polaris moved the exhaust outlet from the pump tunnel-to next to the pump tunnel/exiting out the rear of the hull.
    So for '97 the u-shaped hose needs to reach 3-4 inches further.
    The '96 900 was the first model to use this set up.Appears the '96 780's were the older set up.

    I'm guessing the water box will be the same as other Fuji engines.

    I do know about the hose being longer but I have already been through this once. I just cut the hose and put in steel extension tube fastened with clamps. Ideally I would like the right one but I am looking to do it cheap so will take what I can get.

    If those hoses are burning up, you should check the screen/fitting at the top of the exhaust pipe. That cools the exhaust/hoses.

    I did check the water injection valve. I poked a small wire through it and cleaned the filter. In fact I took the whole exhaust off to check all the ports for blockage. At this point all I can think of is something in waterbox restricting the flow out. I was also going to replace the valve with one off a 650 as I heard they are a little larger.

    I can hear a metalic rattle in waterbox when I shake it around is that normal? Or maybe something crawled up there and died.

    Machine seems fine for about 10 mins and then loses power, waterbox gets hot and the hoses melt and the short one expands and pops off.

    @ wits end..

    Same problem as you. Read through it and see what you think.

    If you hear metallic sound rolling around the waterbox, try to get whatever it is out. Normally debris inside the engine gets expelled through the exhaust and collects inside the WB. It may be and indicator that somehting is wrong internally.

    Like: bad bearings, broken rings, loose screw, etc....

    Thanks for pointing out that thread. I am going to follow some of the ideas there.

    Still looking for someone in the Windsor area with used parts.
