I decided to have a buddy help me out with my summerization this year instead of having the dealership take care of it. I have a question about the chaincase tension on my 06 Fusion 700 because neither of use have ever done a sled like this before. Can you guys briefly tell me what you do to ensure good chain tension. I believe we tightened up the chains and then backed it off 1/4 of a turn.... Is this correct?

Thanks!

I personally like to run the chain tension looser than factory settings, I set the chain to where it almost touches the chaincase (on the opposite side of the tensioner) when pushing on the chain.

Just like everything else there will no doubt be 42 different opinions to follow.

That's what Polaris reccomends, but make sure you are really making contact with the chain. I had a sled that the bolt was galling the case and felt tight. Best thing to do is take the cover off and watch it. This also lets you inspect everything, and a gasket is only like $7. Also, make sure you roll the secondary clutch counter clockwise looking at it, and lock the brake, to take the slack out of the chain.
