If it were mine and it were still under warranty first thing I would do is find out whether or not Polarise is issueing NEW parts.. If they are and I could get at it I would talk to my dealer about oking me to drill a pilot hole at the end of the crack and finish out the season with it.. I have done this on several occasions and it works fine. I wouldnt go with the weld job for fear of Polaris considering it "fixed" and losing the chance to get a new/updated tunnel.. Sure seems like they would have a chassis with stronger bracing in that area...
Anyway,, you dont want your sled down for the rest of the season.. Wayyyyyyy to much time left to ride!!!

All of the IQ chassis sleds crack right there under the pto side. It is common and that piece is not a structural member in the chassis. Im not sure why they crack right there but I wouldn't worry about it. Mine started cracking when it was brand new and I raced it all season without any problems, it now has over 2000 miles. My sleds that have cracked are: 05 900 fusion, 06 600 fusion, 07 600 cfi and 07 700 dragon.

Thanks mike 500. Had it welded up today looks good. That is the spot that cracked i have about 5000 miles on the sled so i cant complain i guees? The crack was about 1/8 inch not bad compaired to my budys who has the same sled with only 2000 miles and a1/2 inch crack or more, And yes mike it was under the pto side.
