    Question 97 SLT 780 shims

    Shim discrepancy question: I recently acquired the aforementioned jetski. I only closely looked at one of the engine mounts and it has the bent tangs and the second smaller stud. Watercraft Superstore/(SBT) lists the 780 as having the shim style without the second hole http://www.watercraftsuperstore.net/...1992-1997.html. With what I'm seeing it should have the style with the second hole http://www.watercraftsuperstore.net/...1995-2005.html. Am I correct in my thinking that they should correct their website to have the 780 listed under the two-hole shims instead of the single? In other words when it comes to the 780 I should buy according to the picture and not how they are titled, right?

    Welcome!! Certainly you can alert them of this, but models and updates and rebuilds can vary so much.... Just make sure you call and are getting what you need to match your mounts.....

    I emailed them and received confirmation that the 780 takes the two hole shim and that they'll be correcting their respective websites. In fact, the two hole shim will work for any Polaris, but don't pay extra for the second hole unless you need it.
