    replace fuel selector valve 95 sl650

    I have a 95 sl 650. the knob for the fuel selector valve broke off, and so I purhcased one off ebay. Problem is, I can not get the old valve out of the hull. I've hit it with a hammer, but didn't want to hit it too hard for fear I would crack the fiberglass. It's like it's glued in. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to remove the old valve. Thank you

    You have to remove the large nut than give it a whack..

    If you bought a used one, make sure it is in good condition, otherwise it can cause a lean condition and ruin your engine.

    If you need a new one, BRP uses the same fuel selector on Can-Ams and Seadoos. I think the Polaris one is discontinued.

    Yea, I guess I fell into that one. The retaining nut was removed!!, yet the valve itself seems adheared to the hull. Any ideas? Thanks

    If the retaining nut was removed, then some adhesive was used.

    Try to carefully remove the valve. There is a "D" shape opening to keep the valve from spinning, so don't twist the valve. Try to push/pull or lightly chisel it free.
