Default Help needed: Track swap! Beer and pizza wrench session @ Eagle's

When: Sunday Nov 20th @ whenever ppl are available!

I need a hand or two getting this track swapped out on the Arctic Cat (2013 F1100 Turbo). If anyone is interested, I'll have beer and pizza for those that come over.

If we run into the evening, I'll have a bonfire if people are interested and the weather holds out.

Swapping a track out is something new to me. I've never done it before and there doesn't seem to be too many quality write ups out there on how to do it. So I figured I'd ask for help from TCG!

I've got the oil change kit and chain case oil on the way. Will be here in time for sure.

Also reading up on the maintenance items for the Polaris sled. Seems pretty easy, not sure that it needs to go in for service...

I can change oil in 4-stroke Yamaha as long as I have a filter wrench.

Swapping tracks never did that ever.

Well here we are. It's Sunday. Anyone available or wanna come by to eat some pizza and have a couple 3-4 beers?

Seems like everyone was available in the afternoon. I'll send out a few text messages and see what comes back.

Let me know!

By the way, as a side of trivia, this day last year, we got 14" of snow and I was riding my Arctic Cat around in the back yard. #BRAAAP

Wish I lived closer. I've swapped tracks before. It isn't too bad. Just make sure to set the tension even when reinstalling. Have fun!

I'll probably get out there around 2... but I want to finish this job today... so dunno, should I start earlier? Never swapped a track. So no idea how much time it'll take.

Take the clutch, belt, brake caliper and shields off.



Nevermind that damage to the aftermarket shield took when the belt blew off once on the trail last year...

Remove outside half of the caliper with a 5/16 hex head. Note, it'll start bleeding brake fluid due to the awesome design that puts the bleeder on the outer half of the caliper...



Sweet oring to be careful of too:


No idea why there's a channel machined in for fluid to leak from either. But whatever. Thanks Obama.

Remove the clip holding the rotor in place:

So then, i supported the track with a jack and removed the 4 13mm bolts holding the skid in place.





And then it jumped out on its own!



No it sure as hell didn't. I struggled like a bitch to get it outta there!

I'm pleased. Now I am going to treat myself to a quick lunch break with KJ.

So for anyone coming over, @Chester Copperpot, I'll be back around 230-3.
