    reverse for a slxh?

    I have a 98 slxh. I have noticed that the slth had a reverse option, but i dont think mine did. Will the reverse parts swap?

    if your jet nozzle has the bolt holes for the reverse grate , then u could use the sltx set up possibly

    Should be able to make it fit. I can't recall seeing a pump nozzle that didn't have the necessary ears on it already. You will need to get a reverse lever, will have to drill a bunch of holes for the lever to mount, and one hole for the cable to exit through in the jet pump recess. Also need an extended pump reverse cable, and the gate/actuator assembly. There have been reverse kits for sale on ebay now and then......

    Just my 2 cents, i dont really see why you would need reverse on a 2 seater, heck I took the reverse off my 3 seater

    Polaris did have reverse kits for the 2 seaters. They pop up on ebay once in a while. I may even have one here in an unopened box....I have bought two of them.

    they had kits that fit the early sl hulls,don't think they fit the 98 up stuff as the mounting for the handle would be different.would also need a reverse setup to work with trim as well.

    The reverse kits did work with trim. I have bought 2 of them. They include a new custom bent trim rod that clears the reverse cable in the pump area. TxPro is right about the handle mounting on the 98 and later hull. Im not sure where you would mount the handle. On a nozzle that has reverse, you can just remove the plastic spacers between the reverse bucket and the nozzle, and insert the trim nozzle in place of the spacers. Its that easy.
