Default 2015 Indy 600 sp questions?

I havenít had a Polaris since 1997, just purchased this one and performing some prep work, adjusted oil pump and greased everything, vented oil cap, Is there a grease zert behind the secondary clutch on the jack shaft bearing carrier? Do they all puke oil out the ves hose hooked to the solenoid valve?

No I don't remember a grease fitting I think you have to pop the seal off and add Grease.
Yeah they all push a little bit of oil residue out the solenoid vent tube.
Nice starting point for a sled once you get it set up you'll really like it.

One wire was unplugged from the pipe temperature sensor, any reason someone would disconnect this?

It looks like I could swap this spacer from the inside to the outside where the ski mounts to increase the width of the ski stance?

I have 2 Indy 600's the only other things I do is run them in Ethanol mode and put cable scratchers on it.


Supposedly Ethanol mode helps engine from running to lean. There is no appreciable performance difference. And the cable scratchers just help if the trail conditions are hard packed to keep it running cooler. My normal temp is right around 123-125 degrees on both machines.


I have blown the bearing behind the secondary on one the machines. The tell tale sign is that the speedometer quits working (just like older machines). Still rode it 15 miles home that way.

bearing is "sealed" from what it says in the service manual. I just take a pick and take the cover off carefully, check it out and pack some low temp grease in there. You shouldn't have to worry to much about this bearing as there isn't a ton of load on it like your driveshaft bearing. Yes, the VES hose pukes

6000 miles on my 15 SP. Traded in 2 years ago. Still running. Definitely need to vent the oil cap. Lots of ways to do this. I made mine from a one way valve from old Polaris cooling system. No grease nipple behind secondary. Installed new bearing with a needle grease hole. Yes oil comes out the solenoid valve. Don't vent it outside. It freezes up. Just gotta stay on top of the clean up. Installed Skidoo rail mounted ice scratchers for low snow conditions. If you stud it in the middle of the track do not install tunnel protectors. Heat problems. Not needle unless you are using very long studs. Change fuel filter 1500-2000 miles. If it starts plugging you will hear the pump whining. You will love this sled.

I just purchased a 2014 Indy 600 SP w only 800 miles on it for my kid. I planned on adding 1.175" studs? So you say I don't need tunnel protectors?
