Thread: SLXH seat

    SLXH seat

    I just got a 98' SLXH. Runs great but needs new seats. Anybody know where I might be able to find them? I have also heard that you can convert to a 1 piece seat as well. If you can I would be willing to do this if I can find a seat. The current seats have the plastic cracked in multiple spots.

    Couldn't you just replace the vinyl on them? I did on my 2 seater and it looks great. Got the vinyl for like 20 bucks. It's not that hard. The vinyl can be found at any sort of fabric store/sewing store.

    The SLXH seats did crack the plastic and could fly off while at speed. There was actually a recall on this and Polaris replaced the seat with what I seem to recall as a new design. It was a safety recall so they had to do it and you still might be able to get it done for free. Please send me half the cost of a new seat that I might have saved you Just kidding. Welcome to the Hulk.

    I would replace the vinyl but the plastic base undereneath is what is cracked. I tried to look into the recall but all the polaris dealers in my area that I know of kind of gave me the finger.

    It's a safety recall so they better not give the finger. They can check by inputing the vin # to see if the recall was ever performed on your ski. Approach them by telling them it is not just a recall but a safety recall. If someone gets injured because they wouldn't perform the safety recall then they are up poops creek because you did your part by going to them? Maybe your local BBB (Better Business Bureau) could help?
