Has anyone tried the 26 tooth top gear on the 05 Fusions? I heard it was suppose to give a little more top-end without sacrificing all that much on the bottom end. I also heard that it'll slip right in... no other changes in the chaincase are necessory and no clutching changes are necessary.

....and does anyone have a Polaris part number for this gear? I believe it would be a 26T - 3/4W.

I bought one from HPE and put it on before I stored sled. Went on without any problem. I also went one tooth smaller on the bottom gear. Their Part number was 813-026 and was $29.95

Haven't run the sled yet.

3222127 is a 26 tooth 3/4" wide HYVO powdered metal sprocket with 15 splines. List priceis $29.99.

If you have a stock motor and clutching, I would not gear taller without making some clutching changes, but I would probably make clutching changes even with stock gearing!

Thanks ExcursionPSD! What's the recommendation on clutching? I heard the the EPI kit is a good one.

a buddy went to 26 top, down one on the bottom and used erlandson's kit. I was surprised at the acceleration, no gun for top end but it felt good. He says EPI kit necessary for gear change as per ExcursionPSD.

I've heard that the 2005 Fusion is over geared from the factory as all Polaris's are. I'm installing Switchback gearing in mine which is 24/37 with the 90 pitch chain. Do you guys know if your clutches are shifting out all the way? Draw a line with a black Sharpie on the primary clutch face and the belt will remove the mark up to the point that the belt climbs to. I used Heel Clicker Hammer Time weights in mine and it still didn't shift out all the way. What do you think???
