    Hello there, just joined the forom as im having a little trouble with a 1996 polaris sl900. I have took the 3 heads off and i found 3 f**ked pistons, on the manual its size bore size 74.5mm but i have been looking on the net for replacements and they come in 75.5mm,76.5mm,77.5mm. the piston has the mark 78A on the dome.

    Welcome to the Hulk..

    You should measure your cylinders to find the correct bore.

    Can you post up some pics of the damage? Were all std pistons marked 78A? I don't remember my 650 being marked as such. I thought it was a 780 thing.
