    Wasn't able to do it on either of my 2000 slx or slh. There was another thread recently that asked the same thing and I believe a few others also stated that it's not doable on these.

    Ask Zigler, I'll bet he's taken a few of those boats apart.

    I remember talking to Randy about this one time and as I recall the answer was grinding the hull (bucket lip) where needed for easier ingress and removal of the tank.

    Bad News

    No, No, and still NO. I tried for almost an hour and almost destroyed the tank. You will have to remove the engine. The only reason I am being so insistent is I do not want to see you damage yours. The plastic tank is NOT as tough as you think. You may be able to grind the hull but just take out the motor.

    Sorry Man

    the reason

    i asked for this reason.the 00-01 pro 1200 has an offset tank,it sits high and to the right,this would affect the ride and handling,the hull is glass as is the mount.with the motor out one could remove the mount center it and replace the 9.8 gallon tank with a 12.3 setup out of an slx slh.improved handling,ride,and increased range,2.5 gallon larger capacity.

    No......The tank is just too big. It's the ears at the back of the tank that hang you up.....

    I remember trying for hours when I installed triples and had to swap to the smaller tank...
