Hi guys i have a 1996 polaris XLT that is completely stock and i have a 136" bombardier track which is 15" wide its a 1" track with studs not sure how many but i was wondering how much im looking at spending would u think? I can get the tunnle extension done for free but what other will i have to pay for? rail ext. are like 105 or so what else is needed and will this reduce low end alot or what other problems could i be running into with the sled if i do this

Thanks!

it is a way do-able conversion, all you need is the tunnel extension and some rail extensions. i would drop your gearing as well, lower the top sprocket count by one tooth and you should be golden.

Don't you have to move the bottom of the chaincase away from the tunnel? I think its called "rolling" the chain case, right? Isn't it why you want to extend the length of the track? To get a bigger lug height under you

You can get a 1 1/4 inch lug in that sled with no problems other than taking the tunnel ware strips out.
(I have a 97 XLT SP with a 1 1/4 in it)
A 136 x 1 inch track will fit just fine with out rolling the Chain Case.
Rail extentions and tunnel extention is all that is needed. With a 1 inch lug you could probibly even keep the same gearing.

that sled will clear a 1.5" track without even changing the drivers. you can clear a 2" with swapping to 8 tooth drivers. you need to remove the tunnel protectors or knotch the track for the bigger lugs.

to clear a 1", nothing is needed just bolt in and go.

ok sweet im hoping to be able to do this to my sled will it lose power off the start? like be really noticable?[/b]
you won't really notice any power loss. i would gear down one tooth on the top sprocket to give yourself a little better low end. if you step up and go 1.5" lug, the gear down is necessary.
