Hi, I got a 2006 APEX GT and I want to know what tension I got to adjust the rear track.

I tried to search the entire forum with no success.

Or maybe if its in the owner's manual ( witch I dont have ) maybe some one as a link to one.



Thanks !

I run mine as lose as posable ...if it ratchets,I tighten it some more.
Mine hangs down maybe a inch or so.

2" sag with 20 lbs pull is spec. Try to run it as loose as possible before ratcheting. Save ya some hyfax.

i didn't read that it was 2"?? per manual you use a scale and put 22 lb ft of pulling force on the track and should have 30 to 35 mm of space between the slider and track. however i would loosen it as much as you can w/out ratching as it will wear hyfax quicker when it's at the manuals recommended setting. imo

Sorry 2" @ 20lbs is my spec. Running 1 3/8" (35mm) @ 22lbs will smoke your sliders and kill top end. Been there done that.

Cheers.

Change all you idler wheels to polaris or doo's ones and you can run the track tighter and only change you slider's for the first time at 7000 miles like i did !

The track tension as well as idle speed , spark plug type and a few other specs are on a sticker on the left side of the delta box frame over right over the belt cover, I read it today but I forget the spec.
