    Missing Intake Grate?

    Took a look under the ski today and noticed no intake grate (also a nice size crack in the hull that lets in plenty of water .. should there be an intake grate there? im not familiar with this ski much, so i took a few pics..

    btw this is a 97 sl700

    Absolutely there should be an intake grate there!

    One of the functions of the intake grate is to keep foreign objects out of the jet pump impeller. Sticks, rocks, hands and feet...

    You can always check the Polaris online parts database for exploded assembly diagrams, and lists of the parts for each model.

    You can re-install a stock intake grate, or one of the aftermarket grates.

    thx for the link! I will have to take a better look at the bolt hole and see if the threads are still in good shape or if they got ripped out with the grate.

    So...Anyone have a stock intake grate for a 97 SL 700 (part# 5630542-067)
    Also the bolt that holds the grate to the hull (part# 7515155)

    May also be interested in an aftermarket one if not too expensive. Cheaper the better! lol

    There is a photo gallery section.

    The manuals front page links to some other pages with Polaris pictures, and model history.

    What are you looking for?
