What does the owners manual say ?

Not saying as a jerk as the newer Polaris's have their tools scattered about. They even use the clutch sheave opening tool as a side panel pin. They are effective at saving weight, I can tell you that. LOL. People that aren't told this or read the manual are left scratching there heads too.

People actually use that tool kit?? And changing a spark plug on the trail?? I don’t think I have seen anyone do that in 10+ years. The only tool needed out of the kit is the tool for belt removal.

And that they give you.


Last time I changed spark plugs on the trail was with my 1998 ZR 600 (20 years ago)


The tool kit they gave was junk
I'll be putting together my own

Well, most of the time you shouldn't have to change a plug, but what if you do?, and that same tool is used for the rear blocks. The dealer is looking into it, none of there sleds came with one. Would be nice to have a spanner wrench for the front shocks. $12,000 is it to much to ask for? Just remember Cat isn't losing any money on 2020's, they just took the dealers profit away!

I find more value in the hat and tee shirt my dealer gave me than I do in the OEM tool kit.
The spanner wrenches bend.
The screw driver shaft spins inside the plastic handle

I build my own kit with better stuff.
Like Greg said make sure you have the tool for the secondary clutch
A wrench to change rear suspension and spark plugs (if you carry spark plugs with you)
Another good one is torx driver so you can remove the hood if need be
A few wrench's, pliers with wire cutter, duct tape & electric tape, a few rags and I'm good to go
SShooterZ, 59turbo, Boom2 and 1 others like this.

Sweet spanner wrenches they provide us. I bent both of them more than once on all my cats. Dealer thinks they need to reef on them or something so that doesn’t help, but the wrench’s are junk.

I really don't care about the tool kit, the point is they should provide the tools necessary to adjust the machine.
