    1996 Polaris SLT 700

    Is there anyone else in this forum that has this PWC? Just want to compare notes if needed.

    I have a 1997 SLT 700. I think the only real difference is the colors.

    The hull of the 96 is different than the 97 but mechanically, as with most Polaris PWCs they are the same

    I was unaware that there was a difference in the hull from '96 to '97. Any Idea what the differences are?

    The 96 hull is fiberglass not SMC. Its the same as the 94 and 95 SLT 750. Flatter bottom and lighter. I would love to find a nice 96 SLT hull. Drop a 1200 in it and it would be one hell of a sleeper.

    Gas filler moved to the side. Bilge button on handlebars. Some other changes I have forgotten...

    Interesting, Don't think I have ever seen anything other than a side fill SLT...? Also Extended pump in 97

    I was thinking of the SL which has the gas filler on the nose prior to 1997.
