    You Don't Have To Removed The Fuel Tank To Replace The Float And Or Sender??

    Sorry for the caps, But I just wanted to say. i read on here somewhere that somebody said you do not have to remove the fuel tank (or remove the bolts and slide it foward) to get the sender out.
    i just want to say I have a 96 slt780, With a bad sender- float... And And
    BULL_HOCKEY, crap, shizzle sticks.. I messed with that sender for two hours, there is no way in hell I could get that sender out, Finally I gave up, the new on isnt here yet anyway ... But holy Jesus SOMEONE please tell me there is an easier way to get to the rear bolts for the tank. Did I forget to mention is was full of fuel also.. God that is a holy pain in the butt.. Sheesh, please help a fellow addicted to the polaris nut out..

    It's not the hanger type it's the integrated pickup float style! I have gone to premix so I removed my oil tank and made the hole were the cap for the oil fill was bigger and I can remove the sender thru the hole!

    So, do you have the tank hardware out or are you still held up on the rear bolts?
    Drain the tank enough so that when the sender comes out and you have the tank tipped, you're not dumping fuel everywhere. Ahhhhhh, just empty the tank. I'm sure I don't have to tell you this BUT be sure to use caution while removing and storing your fuel (I store mine outside).
    Remove some foam for easier access to the bolts.
    On the rear bolts I have a 3/8 ratchet about 3 inches long that basically fits in my palm, it has a swivel head to it. I get the exact length of extensions and a socket so that I can get the ratchet just above the tank and make 1/4 rotations of the ratchet.
    Once the hardware is out, remove the filler hose and disconnect the lines to the sender (be sure to mark their correct location), slide the tank forward and or/tilt for gauge removal.
    After a few times, you'll be saying how easy it is.

    On the SLT hull the sender sits under the steering pod area and there's just not quite enough room to get her out. It's like they knew it and tease you.

    Wetherby you referred to a float arm so I thought you were talking about the old school Polaris float arm that was mounted separately on the tank! Sorry!

    The javascript is straight from the polarind web site. I'm guessing it's wrong?

    Lmao, Yeah the sorry lil fu%^&* will not come out with the tank being in it's stock location. I wish I could find the post that said " it takes some manuvering but it will come out without moving the tank".. Sh*t-head..
    Yes Ph, your exactly right. As usual
    I have a different question, I was speaking to Jay at atlantic.. Very nice, knows his crap type guy. He told me to pull the bearing cone on my 96 slt 780 just for sh*ts and giggles and see if it was dry. I pulled the cone today after riding all day yesterday, sure enough there was a small amount of water in there. The bearings and seals still look like new. Is this normal? Or is there a way to keep the water out??
