    Fuel Selector

    I have been searching to figure out what to do about my fuel selector valve on my 1994 SL 750.

    I took it off today to put a new o-ring in it. Dropped it in some carb cleaner just out of habit to ensure it was good and clean on the inside. Then, I realize the inside has a formed rubber seal/bushing. Needless to say this is toast now.

    -Should I try to find a used selector?
    -Bypass the switch all together? If so, should I run off of reserve line or main? Is there any risk in not shutting off the fuel?
    -Get another fuel valve from an auto store?

    Thanks!

    I haven't had the need to look into it, but I've read that others use Seadoo valves to replace thier polaris valves that are no longer available from Polaris. The valves handle position is a little different. (its pointer)
    I have a 95 yamaha wave blaster in my garage waiting on parts, but was thinking it may have a valve suitable to replace my 650s valve. I just went out to the garage, and couldn't find the valve from my 650 as its pieces are everywhere. I did pull the blasters valve, and found it fits the sl650. The little index tit on the blasters valve will require making a hole for it to better fit and lock in position in the sl hull. My decals are gone from the 650, but I think the position of the blasters valve is a perfect match for the 650 if the index hole is put in the right place.

    My 650s hull is upside down, but my 780 is ok to test fit the blaster valve. It's just in different location on the same side. Even though the blasters valve has 2 flats on the stem, my polaris handle , with only one flat, will fit. Check the pics...

    Just get the Sea Doo valve for $15.

    Like Star said, the positioning of the pointer is off, but it's new and will give years of service.

    Any idea of a part number on that Yamaha valve?
    Still available new?

    Would be good to have an available replacement that actually agrees with the OEM Polaris valve knob markings.
