I was just at the Maine snowmobile show and sat on some of the new fusions. I noticed with my right foot, in the footwell the chaincase cover. I was wondering if anyone who has a fusion last year, when you rode, did you notice the cover with your foot when riding.

Thanks

i dont think you could see it on the 05..........the 06 has a lowered driveshaft ....that is probably why you see it now :smiley-faces7: :smiley-faces7:

I sat on an 06 last weekend at the Syracuse show- and i notice the right foot-well is alittle "tight"
and I was told- it was because they lowered the driveshaft 3 inches, i think the clutch has been lowered as well, to improve the belt angle- to combat those problems

The chaincase protrudes more on the 06 than it did in 05... It looks to me and I could be wrong, but the only reason it's wider is because they put a fill plug in the footwell, thereby eliminating the dipstick. There's also a siteglass for checking the level.

I present the chaincase/footwell of my 05 fusion.



The chaincase/footwell on my '06 fusion.Notice the additional tunnel bracing on the 06, there's a lot of that compared to the '05

Actually, I just got the 06 today and snapped some shots of the so called, problem areas... I had the 05 pic from last year, again of some so called, problem areas.

BTW - Yes, I just confirmed on page 84 of my owners manual, the bolt with the flathead screwdriver slot is in fact identified as #3 - Fill Plug.

You'll need a goofy funnel to add oil to the chaincase.

Thanks for the help and info everyone, that helps a lot. I was starting to get upset with Polaris, but this puts my mind to ease. Hopefully I am going to get a 07 next year, maybe the 600ho will be in the cleanfire injection then. Thanks everyone.

no funnel needed, use a squirt bottle of some type. been doing that for years regardless of chaincase type. if you can't find a squirt bottle, use a Plochmans mustard bottle

I definitely noticed it on my '05. I wear big boots (size 12 Sorel Glaciers, +1 size extra to keep 'em loose and my feet warm when it's below -30*) which probably made it worse. I was surprised that nobody complained about this last year. When I slide my foot in and out of the footwell, I usually keep it snug against the tunnel and every once in a while it stubbed on the chaincase. No big deal, I got used to it, but it was a slight flaw in the design.

I wear the same size and brand of boot, and that was what I was wondering. Just something to get use to I guess
