Default New to polaris - what tools do I need?

I jumped ship to a 13 pro this year from the turd that is the Proclimb. What tools do I need to service the sled? I am basically looking to be able to swap weights, helix, springs, tracks, etc. I pretty much like to have everything. Also any weird fasteners, etc?

Already have a clutch puller?
Annoying else for the primary? ( looks mostly the same as a cat clutch)
Any special tools to swap spring/helix on the team?
Special tools for the driveshaft?

Thanks in advance.

Nothing special for the Primary. Just basic hand tools since you have a puller already.

SLP makes a nice secondary clutch tool:

The secondary also needs an impact driver to remove the screws.

Good thread idea. I am also jumping from Cat to Polaris. One of the best things I can say about my M's is that I didn't even know what tools where in the tool kit because they never broke down. I have ridden with Polaris guys recently who cursed the lack of tools in the OEM tool kits. What should a guy toss in? Is there any critical tools that didn't make it in the tool kit?

Allen wrench and wrench to adjust the belt deflection on the Team clutch.

Is this with glove on or off? I foresee this happening to me now that I no longer have the cable scratchers and will be using the "normal" scratchers this season.

You will need to take pictures of your buddies at the bottom of the hill that couldn't make the climb you just made!

Honda rivets for when you roll your sled and windshield pops off, 6 MM Allen for readjustment of handle bars, 15 mm for track, 1/4 inch drive metric drive socket set, 4 way screw driver and leather-man. Don't forget your local helicopter pilots
phone number as the Pro overheats when you drag others off the mountian.

You'll need a 11mm (7/16 will work too) wrench to go with the 1/8 Allen wrench for the belt deflection.
As far as the cable scratchers, they don't work as well as the stock ones.

i'm with pro-8250
you just need a few memorized nice things to say about your friends sleds so they don't get bummed out ! ha ha

for real (on sled )
like said above wrenches/shock adj.tools/extra oil (for fill ups)
good gloves (not much wind protection)/ maybe allens to adj. bars to liking
spring tool (i carry one they can be handy )/plugs/muffpot

shop
same as above good torx set/ primary puller /ratio rite (for oil)/tork wrench etc.

congrads on the jump i think you'll really like the sled
