Changing a Track, how hard is it?
Posted 12 February 2012 - 04:42 PM
How difficult is it to swap out a track. Im pretty mechanically inclined, but Ive never swapped a track out. Anything I need to know going into it?
Sled is a 2010 XRS 800R.

It takes a lot longer on an XP. the brake is down on the left side and has to come off, special tools are usually needed. If you have elec start which most of them do now then you have a battery and some electrical stuff in the way.
I find it very easy. I haven't done it on as new a sled as you have though, Done my VMAX twice and my ZX chassis four times.

My father-in-law and I are not very mechanically inclined; however, using these awesome directions(which were written for a REV and we were working on a F Chassis so there were some slight differences) we were able to accomplish the task in about 10 hours total. With these directions in hand if you are mechanically inclined you shouldn't have any problems. Good Luck!

X2! Take your time and try not to rush!
If you can hang it with straps 4-5ft off the ground it will be easier

i can do it in 2 hours by my self first take the chain case apart then loosen all skid bolts then take one side of the bolts out next flip sled on its chaincase side remove the rest of bolts then skid next swap your track then do it again in reverse but put the drive shaft bearing in first
That's all there is to it.
IMO rockstar tastes like an ashtray.. When tuned right, Monster will add more throttle burps per second than Rockstar.
Hope you didn't whack it too hard...I sure am glad I had the lid on or it could have hurt...

Taking some pictures while you're disassembling stuff never hurts, and ziplock bags are great to keep parts together.
