Important notice: Follow the directions and instructions in your Slingshot Owners Manual for your year and model.
New Owners , this thread was created to help you see some of the important information needed to maintain and enjoy your Slingshot. It is almost impossible to make one posting fit all Slingshot years and models. The information I have posted is for my 2017 Midnight Cherry SL LE. The information is posted from the 2017 Slingshot Owners Manual. If you have a different year and model Slingshot, you should ALWAYS check your owners manual that is for your Slingshot. My information is a guide to lead you into looking the information up in your Owners Manual. There are differences in the different years. It has been pointed out that there are different lift points for the Post 2017 years, so there can be other important differences that you need to observe. Be careful and by all means, you read your owners manual for the section you are to perform a procedure on your Slingshot.
