    New Slx project

    I recently picked up a 96 SLX 780 that is bored .30 over I believe. I got it for $350 with a trailer from a friend. Anyway it looks like the battery made contact with the electrical box and melted the wiring harness, the previous owner already pulled the stator off. I have worked on plenty of snowmobile and dirt bikes but never a jet ski. I'm wondering where I can get a good service manual from. I would like to go through this thing and make sure it's in tip top shape before I take it out on the water. Any help on where to find parts or service manuals would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    There are plenty of parts out there. Lots of guys here willing to sell spares. Ebay is an option, but you need to be careful there, some are selling used parts for more than you can get them new through a Polaris dealer. There is still lots available through a dealer. Service manuals are not hard to come by. Someone here should be able to steer you to one.

    Do you guys know if a Stator off a sl 650 will work on a 780? I found one on ebay that says it will fit a 650, 750, and 780. I see a 750 stator will work but haven't been able to confirm that a 650 stator will work. Thanks

    no and the early 750 stators wont work either ,if you use a 750 it has to be a 94 and up stator

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    sbt now sells new stators for Polaris pwc's. Nothing wrong with a good used one tho.

    If you catch the Polaris pwc addiction like the rest of us, don't miss out on the gathering! Last year was my first time going and it was a blast!

    Its an awesome time. Besides, it will give you the chance to possibly ride a lot of the other offerings from Polaris. Although that could be dangerous, it might make you spend more money.
