Question track wont fit! need help from experienced polaris owners.

hey guys and girls,

just swapped my track for a new 136, (Polaris dealer said it would fit, but it doesn't. the tension bolts are all the way back and i still need about an inch to tighten.

the sled is a 1998 Indy trail touring. xtra 10 suspension.
does anyone know what track comes on this sled?

im getting mixed reviews on this sled, some places say 121, others say 133.5

Sounds like the original track was one of the 133" Polaris tracks. They used to make small rail extensions to make the 136" work. I should have some and can dig them out if you are interested.

I just sold a 1998 Indy Touring and it had a 133.5 / so yes rail extensions back in the day worked for that to streach it out.

they also make off-set axle kits. Those would work perfect for this situation.

its the difference divided by two so an inch will do it in this case.
mine worked at about 3/4" setback, i hate setbacks tho, heavier front.
you can remove and replace the rear suspension brackets with those from an '01 RMK if its like mine, gives lots of mount hole options for this type of thing. just drill out one hole further back/down, do same in the front and should work, but extensions would be better.
