Check with your local airport.

Be careful with that. Avgas is expensive, contains lead, and more importantly has no road tax added to it. You and/or your local airport can get in big trouble. I used to work at my local airport (KMEI) and we would sell it to you in an approved container but not allow you to add it to a motor vehicle of any kind. If you wanted to do that, you had to go off site.
I got an email from Polaris concerning yet another electrical system recall. It is about 10A circuit breakers that don’t meet functional specifications and may cause the engine to stop running. It only affects Slingshots manufactured between Feb 12 - July 31, 2019.
Just an FYI. I’m waiting on the letter before calling the dealer.
That looks like you have a dedicated speedo display. I previously tried a HUD for my phone, but my phone wouldn't flip the image so that the HUD was properly oriented. Would appreciate it if you could provide some links on what you used.
I used the Timprove T600 from Amazon. I wanted something simple that I could put anywhere and leave in place. It also frees up my phone for using Waze for times I’m actually trying to go somewhere specific.

This weekend I installed a new steering wheel and a GPS HUD. I needed the HUD because it’s hard for me to read the speedometer ant night. This thing helps a lot.
Thanks for the information!
I found a set of SL wheels and want to replace the stock wheels on my 2019 base SS.
I saw some instructions on the Polaris accessories site and it indicates that the mount (Clevis) needs to be replaced with the part that comes with the wheel kit.
Anybody know anything about this? Seems like it would clear.
Thanks for the replies everyone.
I took it apart and pulled (VERY gently) as much wire through the adapter as would come. I connected the wires, but reversed the connection just in case. I also bent the terminals in a little. When I bolted everything back together it worked perfectly. I road tested it and all seems fine now.
It’s just a hair off to the right but I think I will live with it for a while.
Hi all. I got a new Assault steering wheel and installed it today. I started it up and everything seemed fine. As soon as I drove away, the horn started blowing. Any idea on why this would be?
The clock spring did rotate about 1/4 turn as I was installing the adapter. I but it back where it was. Could I have damaged that?
Good luck and many thanks Sam!
Your videos helped push me into going ahead and purchasing my own Slingshot.
i've thought putting a small heater core in my SS
but it seems simpler and cheaper to wear heated clothes. I have everything from a simple heated vest, to a snowmobile outfit.
this'll be the 1st winter with my SS, but I used to commute in 20* weather on my BMW R1100RT enginecycle. if the roads were dry, I was riding.
I see what you did there!
I thought it was a good article. I couldn’t find anything really to complain about.
I don't own a 2019 or have immediate access to that unit.
The 2019 maintenance manual and the OEM parts illustrations still show that screw boss.
Is your 2019 purchase new or used?
Looked at your pics and it may be a trick of the paint glint, but there appears to be a cone shape with a round dimple. It appears to be either a putty filled and painted area. Or been ground down and painted.
Here's your pic back with the area I see...
Maybe someone with a 2019 can clarify.
Not knowing the model, that swingarm appears to be custom painted.
I’ll have to look tomorrow, but I think it’s the light.
Mine is a 2019 purchased new back in April. Completely stock swing arm. There are two or three circles in that area that appear to be left over from the casting process.
I was just looking at e rear fenders on slingmods.com and with all of the Metricks fenders that use the mounting hole on top they only list them as fitting 2015 through 2018 - taking this in to account and then seeng your picture it looks like the swing arm was changed for 2019 and does not have the necessary mounting boss
You might want to call slingmods or better yet Metricks and ask them before you think about drilling the swing arm
Yeah, I think I might just have to eat the money I spent. It wasn’t a lot.
Maybe I’ll figure out something.
If it helps here is a picture of the swing arm on my 2016 - as you can see it has the hole on the top near the drive belt - (I put a bolt in it to keep water from getting inside the swing arm) - and on the side of the swing arm you can see the square reinforced area that you are supposed to drill and tap - - if newer swing arms do not have the these areas built up as they are on mine there is no way in hell I would drill and tap it - - the reinforcement is there for a reason
mine doesn’t have the built up area on top like yours does. I can see a circle but no reinforcements on top.
The built up area on the side is the same though.
Anyway, that’s why I asked. Since I have no idea how thick the metal is there, I think I will figure out another way.
Thanks for the advice everyone.
You didn't state which brand or model of fender so good answers are hard to give.
My fender is from Metricks, it is the hugger model for the SLR. I've got a 16.5 so not sure if they've changed the swingarm. My swingarm is drilled and tapped from the factory.
I'm including a couple of pics, with their setup no drilling is required. Hope this helps.
