Has any one ever heard of a 133.5x15 track? Suppose to fit the indy trail touring models. Would a 136 work? If any one knows please post a reply. Just seems kind of weird.
Thanks for looking and the help in advance.

That is the factory size track on most of the early to mid 90's polaris sleds. A 136 track will work with rail extensions, or with a set of 8" big wheels in the back.

Not sure of the other models, but my 1994 XLT has the 133.5" track and the sled is referred to as a SKS.

133.5 was the SKS and long track version for polaris till 97 700 RMK came out as a 136. Everything after is 136. They are getting harder to find, but some still out there.

Not so sure you can pick up that slack by putting on 8" wheels. You normally need an offset axle to do that, otherwise the outside of the wheel goes below the rails. No good. I don't think there's any such thing as a rail extension to go from 133.5 to 136.

I would think you'd be able to use the normal adjustment system to get enough of that slop out.

Thanks for all the help everybody. The rails measure out at roughly 53 inches and I believe that the 136 rails measure out at 54 or so. So maybe I can get the slack out with the adjuster.

I own a set of these rail extensions. They are or were sold by western powersports. Do your homework before you dog me.

This has come up before, and there IS a conversion useing a larger wheel set up in the rear. NO rail ext. needed. redrilling yes, if im remembering correctly.
I did SOME looking around but didnt find the thread with the correct info... its here somewhere. ??
j.b. shocks maybe??
my old 97 ULTRA TOURING has the 133.5. i looked into it a couple years back, but sold it instead.

I replaced the track in my 99 classic two up not long ago and it has the 133.5

I used a 136 and got it to work but I had to grind some of the rail off the back so I could push the wheels back far enough so the track wouldn't ratchet. Still seems plenty strong enough and its been off some small jumps without issues and who intends on jumping a touring sled? Don't really recommend this though
