    97 polaris 1050 sl

    just starting up a little discussion. what do you guys think about the 97 1050 SL? pros, cons, likes, dislikes?

    might buy the ski, and wanted some 2nd opinions.

    This fellow seems to like them, I think...

    The 1999 SLX was a 1050 machine, while the '97 SLX was a Pro 785 model - different engines, different hulls, different ride characteristics.

    A friend has a '97 SL900, and it is a lot of fun, and rather quick. I imagine the SL 1050 version would be similar, as would the '98 SLXH (1050).

    Others on here have also commented favorably about the 1050 2-seaters.

    Does the one you are considering have the extended jet pump, and extended ride plate?

    We just got one last season with VERY low hours on it and it was babied. So far the thing is awesome and it rips... no regrets.
