    New Riding Season = New Mods (1996 Polaris 780 SLX), Have Some Questions

    Hey guys,

    New season of riding means new season of mods! Have a 96 Polaris SLX 780 with updated fuel lines, cleaned up carbs, spark plugs etc.

    Looking to do the following:

    - HydroTurf (any recommendations?)
    - Ocean Pro "R" Ride Plate (" ")
    - 785 CDI pro upgrade - higher revs and better curves? (where to get?)
    - Triple Pipes (where at?)
    - 6 vane Strator (where at?)
    - Impeller 12/17 heard is best (where at?)
    - Intake grate?

    Thanks guys,

    Would also need pointers on how to install all the parts, except the turf. Contact cement, certain kind?

    Post a WTB thread in the Polaris Classifieds for each piece you are looking for. You may also find the 785 CDI, 6 vane stator, and 12/17 on ebay. Your stock grate should be an R&D style, which I would stick with.

    The 785 CDI isn't really going to get you much until you find some triple pipes.....

    I would do the Ocean pro O plate, not the R. The ride quality is so much better with the O version.
