    gas tank removal

    I have a 96 slt780 and I am getting ready to replace the float in the fuel sender and was wondering if anyone had pulled the sender on a ski like mine or similar. Do I have to pull the oil lines, etc?
    Any tips would be appreciated.

    Have you tried the on line manuals posted on here?

    Don't know about a 780 but......

    ??? On a SL750 if you remove/loosen/move out of the way the filler rubber hose to the tank and then remove the four tank hold down bolts you can move the tank (no fuel) ahead enough to lift out the sending unit.

    Not sure if the SLT is the same as a SL.

    That's why he's looking for someone's input.

    gas tank removal/update

    just a quick note to other slt780 riders, got my tank out tonite, quite a job, those bolts are not easy to get too. Used about a 15in. extension and a 13mm socket.
    Float is bad. Ordered new one from watcon.com

    I'm not looking forward to putting it back together, but I'm looking forward to getting out on Lake Erie.
