    Question Set-up sponsons????? Newbie Question

    My 96 Polaris sl780 already had a set of beach house sponsons on it when I bought it. My question is how do the need to be set? and what is their primary function? Are they better than stock?

    I'm running the stockers, but they are supposed to be better. The function is to keep the back of the craft from sliding out in a corner. Without them you would spin out trying to corner hard, especially going around a buoy course. I'm sure somebody here can tell you where they should be set.

    Not sure about aftermarket, but the stockers help lift the back of the boat out of the water.

    Every person will have a different riding style and a different feel they want out of the sponsons.
    Try a bunch of combo's, it's fun and easy.
    The higher they are the more speed you'll get, the lower you set them the better you'll go around a bouy, it'll be a much better bite.
