SLX780 Fuel tank Change
Hey everyone, I want to move the filler cap of my 96 Slx to another location other than right in front which is a royal PAIN to fill in the water especially when I am filling from cans. I have heard that a Pro785 tak has the right filler neck location, but am haveing a really hard time finding a used tank...Has anyone done this conversion? If you have an old tank you want to get rid of, lemme know..

Can't you just beach the ski when you refill?

I could sometimes, but most of the time I am at a dock, or marina where the water level is low enough so that I have to get down in the water to reach the filler cap anyway. I was thinking that by relocating it, I could just sit on the dock while holding the can. Randy from Watcon told me that the tank and filler neck from the Pro 785 should work, but finding a tank is tough! Didn't know the volume was less though, and I don't mind of it's a gallon or so shy.
