    95 slt 750 96 slx 750

    Hey guys. I'm new to the forums and had a few questions I was hoping someone would be able to help me with.. First off I would like to say that these forums have helped me learn A LOT about my Polaris.
    Now on to my questions. I have a 95 polaris SLT 750. 1 cylinder with no compression. I found a guy on craigslist that is selling a 96 SLX 750. i've been looking around and can't seem to find anything about a 96 SLX 750. Did they come with a 750 or 780?
    If it is a 750 will the stator work from the 96 to the 95? The reason i'm asking is because I burned the wires to my stator. STUPID mistake. I put the battery in and didn't put the plastic cover on it when I put the cdi box on top.. 15 year mechanic and I made a rookie mistake lol. WHen I go look at this 96 where on the engine will it tell me if its a 750 or a 780?
    I want to thank you in advance for any help..

    you can swap the stators. the 750 and 780 cylinders have a different exhaust manifold pattern. SLX's are 780's not 750's

    Keep in mind that others may have switched motors. I looked at an SLX that had a blown motor. They swapped out the good 780 into their 750 and were selling the SLX with blown 750. The water rails on the 750 have a "750" cast into them. The 780s do not. The bolt holes on the exhaust manifold as Nut mentioned are probably the best tell tale. The 750 exhaust has two bolts on top and one on bottom for each cylinder, where the 780 has one on top and two on bottom....

    If your ground wire is burnt up, you can try replacing the wire full length to repair it before buying a donor ski.....

    I've thought about just rewiring it but I figured it would be easier just to replace the entire stator.. To be honest the 96 that I was thinking of buying was CHEAP but after reading that its a 780 I'm gonna rethink about what I'm gonna do. I appreciate the Replies and all the help..
