    Polaris Display?

    I have a 96 polaris sltx that has the display in the hood. Will any 8 pin display work or does it have to be a special display? I am looking at buying a display from a 97 sltx that has it in the handle bar pad.

    Thank You

    You can cross check the part numbers here.

    Your 1996 SLTX uses MFD 3280252, used on various models in 1996, 1997, 1998, and 2001

    The 1997 SLTX uses MFD 3280269, which was only used on that year and model

    Any 8-pin MFD will plug in and work. The Trim position display might be different, however. And the speedo calibration might be a little different.

    you have to make sure yours doesn't have the two studs on the back of it .if it does then you have to find one like it or maybe just put some silicone on it and push it down in there and let it dry if you want to use the other kind

    K447, what do you mean when you say: " The Trim position display might be different"??
    I am haveing A weird problem with A brand new MFD, the trim display does not keep up with the trim motor....even after I zero it. its like the MFD is calibrated for A slower trim motor. Could that be?? I showed Bob(Lugs785) at starved rock and he said he never had this kind of problem. Very weird.

    There are two kinds of trim motors. One runs at 'regular' speed.

    The other trim motor runs at 'double speed', and was standard on the Pro models, and I think some of the SLX years.

    There are two versions of MFD with Trim display. One MFD version tracks the normal speed trim motor, the other MFD tracks the 'fast' trim motor.

    Mixing the MFD and trim motor types does not affect the operation of the trim motor itself, but the MFD trim position display will read incorrectly.

    I'm guessing there is no way to change on MFD with one speed calibration to the other?

    Are you sure that's not backwards? My '96 MFD is in the pad and the '97 is in the hood.

    785 lugs is right, a hood mounted MFD has studs on the rear but silicone works well if the replacement MFD doesn't have studs.

    As far as I know, the MFD trim indicator motor speed 'calibration' cannot be changed.

    If someone knows otherwise, I am all ears

    Interesting....according to this information about the MFD (LINK) there are two versions of the MFD. I am having a problem with the trim level gauge not staying up with the motor.

    My first thoughts are well duh, you have the slow response MFD...but that one is limited to only 7,000 RPM. I've had mine up past 8,000 RPM. How does that make sense??
