    Just bought a 1997 polaris sl 700 did i get a good deal?

    Hello, just bought a 1997 Polaris SL 700 Deluxe. I paid $1100.00 for it with a single place adjustable trailer. (The trailer expands to haul a three seater if needed) It is very clean. Also, where can I get an owner's manual for it? I don't know anything about the features such as the trim and bilge pump features. What do I need to know about it? Thanks for any info!

    i didnt see a question of a good deal or not more that you bought it, it had an adjustable trailer and you wanted an owners manual as you where not sure about the bilge and the trim? if the ski runs, id say good deal with a trailer

    Was it a good deal? Depends on a number of variables... Location? Condition of ski? Condition of trailer? Does it appear to be well maintained? Good compression in both cylinders? Has the fuel system been gone through? Original or updated ignition system? Etc...

    Post up a couple photos of it. Those 97 SL 700 Deluxes are sharp looking skis. They're also a lot of fun to ride.

    A good deal is in the eyes of the buyer. If you're happy with it, that's all that matters.


    I've been looking for a ski for my wife. In June I found a '97 SLT on ebay in nearby Perrysburg, OH.

    $510 bid when the auction ended and it was mine. Included a cute little galvanized trailer.

    Put it in the water and next thing I see is my son driving away, lol.
