    motor swap

    I have a 96 slt 700 3 seater. I would like to swap the motor into a 2 seater hull since I already have another 3 seater. Is there a polaris hull that this is possible to do with little to no mods? I'm a machinist so making brackets or adapters or stuff like that isn't a issue.

    Red Polaris engines are known as 'domestic', either two or three cylinder. All two cylinder engines have the same mountings and physical dimensions. All the red three cylinder engines are also the same size, but different mountings than the twins.

    Any other Polaris hull that originally had a two cylinder motor will accept your 700. Look for an SL or SLH Polaris of 1996 or later.

    I have 2 and 3 seat skis all with the same basic engine.

    The electrics are a slightly different, for example my wife's '97 SLT doesn't have an Multi Function Display (MFD) like my '98 SLH's, so it doesn't have a sensor for the fuel & oil tank, tachometer, hourmeter, and speedometer which povides the time/speed/distance functions.
