    WTB: Need a hood and hinge for 00 SLX

    My hood is due to go over Niagara falls at any moment now. I need a new hood that will fit on an 00 slx. Obviously, the correct color would be nice, but anything that will fit will get the job done for now. Let me know if you have / know of / or can find anything.

    Thanks.

    Did your machine not have the Service Bulletin update that added a retention cable to the hood, in case the plastic hinge broke?

    I guess not . I finally get this thing running right (I think) and it decides to throw its hood into my jaw...I'm assuming this isn't going to be easy to find. I checked ebay, they have nothing.

    This problem was a big deal for Polaris at the time, and some people were badly injured.

    Hope you were not seriously hurt.

    An alternate fix to the wire strap is to install the hood mounting from the triple pipe kits. The triple pipes got in the way of the stock hood hinge, so there was a metal clip that was used instead. It is quite solid, and the hood will not come off, even in racing conditions.

    Not too bad, just a cut and a sore jaw. I'll definitely find a very solid way of securing it this time. My big concern is actually finding a hood.

    Do you know what other models and years had the same shape hood?

    Have you emailed John Zigler and Beach_Blonde?
