soi just bought a big wheel kit and now iam thinking right now iam running a 144 and i bought the wheel kit with the intention of takeing up the slack in the track because iam almost out of track adjustment now iam wondering if i can run a 151 with the big wheel kit or if it will not take up anuf of the track lenght but i also have a set of slp rail exstentions to go from 144-151 but i dont know if i can run my wheel kit with the extensions because where the axel go's throught the exstention i think it might be widr than that spot on the rail so ya any info would be help full and also i dony know what make the wheel kit is because i bought it used aqnd it didnt say

What big wheel kit is it? Does it use an offset axle?

If the wheel kit came with the propper offset axel kit than you would be able to run the 151" track with the bigwheel kit and rail extesions. Could you post some pictures so we can see the situation a little better

ok ya i will find out what make the kit is

so sounds like the kit is made by hiperformance enginering so they say that it can be run as a 3 inch exstention

i dont think youll have enough adjustment to take up 7 inches of slacl in youre track with just the axle . i went from a 153 to a 156 with a new axle and bigger wheels and it worked out awsome. mabey try new rails there the same price as rail extensions and an off set axle and you can get then cut to run what ever size wheels / track you want

um man its only 4 inches to go from 144 to 151 and the wheel kit takes up 3 inches of theat and with extroverts i can run my track really lose so i think it will work

and actilly its only 3.5 inches to go from 144-151 because if you go 144-151=7divided by 2 =3.5 just like 144-136=8divided by 2 =4 so iam only .5 of a inch short with my wheel kit

when they say 3 inches, they mean 3 inches of track ie. 156-159. the offset axle and bigwheels will not be enough to take up the slack from a 144-151 without a skid relocation or using extensions

Gone Sledding is right on the money will not work for 151.
02-12-2008, 06:52 PM
ok guys this is what it says on there site
Offset axle kits for long tracks can be turned around for a
3” extension so you need 3.5" extensin for 144 to151 o why wont it work?
02-12-2008, 07:03 PM
the extension is only good for 3" of track 1/2 of that would be 1 1/2" so it will be 2" to short.

ok i see what your saying now
02-12-2008, 09:13 PM
I went from a 144 to 151 by just moving my suspension back, worked really well and made my track have a better approach angle, and didn't cost me anything...
02-12-2008, 09:20 PM
ya i know what you saying us i already set my skid back to go from 136 to 144
02-14-2008, 07:08 PM
Can the skid be moved back on a 02 polaris 800 rmk (144) to 151 position without causing problems?

honeslty i dont know but i cant really see it being aproblem i dont know tho so what do you guys think
02-17-2008, 09:05 PM
I used 9 inch wheels to go from a 159 to a 162. It BEARLY worked, I am completey out of adjustment. If my track stretches any more I am not going to be in good shape.

you can probably call the rail etension place ansd tell them you have a big wheel kit and they will modify the rail etensions
