    Conversion With two Polaris skis...

    Got two Polaris Skis...SL780 & SLTX 1050 Looking to swap the 1050 and put it into the 780 and part out the 780 which is all good btw. Got these two for a bargain.

    Is this possible would anything stop me from doing this? All stock everything. Any insight would be great.


    Thanks,
    Arlen

    How much work are you willing to do

    Those two boats are really quite different. I would recommend start by making sure the 780 hull has mounts for the Domestic triple. Hopefully, another forum member could answer that. If you have to, mounts can be glassed in. Be prepared to swap a lot of parts, there isn't much that they share in common engine-wise.

    I believe the 97 hulls had the same mount points for either a domestic or Fuji. The 96 SLT 780 and SLTX also had this. If you look at the Fuji mounting, there is a different set of mounting plates for those skis then the one piece bed plate like the earlier Fujis had. It should be a direct bolt in swap. I think the 96 SLX and the SL 900 were the same too.

    The 780 two piece bed plates make the stance shorter and therefore align with the 700 two cylinder mounting locations. The mounting locations will be present in the SMC hull but likely will not have the forward threaded inserts installed. You will either need to install inserts, or through bolt the mounts at the forward mounting location.... The rear mounts are the same. A 780 with split bed plates will drop directly into a 700.
