    1996 Polaris SLTX 1050 HIN's

    Help needed with HIN's for a 1996 polaris sltx 1050.
    I have a SLTX 1050 with no HIN on the exterior side at the rear, however, i did find a tag on the inside of the hull in the forward compartment, tucked up near the split line, that had imprinted on it, Polaris Slt deck #5432417
    MC#417
    A bar code and a number above the bar code 001509. and date of 4 then 15 and a shift number which i could not read.
    How can I decode these to find out my HIN.
    If this isnt an HIN where is the second one found? is it glued in? riveted in?
    Please help as I could have bought a stolen ski!!

    cheers
    chris

    If the ski is a 1996, the last two digits of the HIN will be "96". I had a 1996 and a 1997 SLTX. There was a HIN plate on the rear of the ski on the upper deck and there was a HIN plate glued to the hull in the front under the removable storage container.

    cheers for the reply planiack, Ill have a better look tomorrow when its light(I'm currently in aus at my folks house). Did the plate that's glued look the same as the aluminium plate riveted on the rear? I will try and upload a picture of the plate I found. I'm thinking I might have to pull the engine out again and do a thorough check in all the nooks and crannies.

    Pull the storage bin. It should be right there. It wont be under the engine unless it fell off.

    cheers mate, its definitely not there.
    I've searched everywhere around there and got a mirror and checked up by the steering mount as well as the sidewalls of the engine bay and in the rear by the exhaust etc , I am hoping that it has fallen off and is wedged between the hull and the foam.
    so i might spend some time pulling it apart and give everything a good look over. it has been sitting in a storage shed for a few years so a once over wont hurt .


    cheers
