I was reading how to fix the noisy chaincase on Polaris XCSP and the main issue is that Polaris put too much of a dog leg bend in the chain which causes lots of noise with the tensioner. I read that 25-39 gearing will work with the stock used 74 p chain and a modified tensioner or you could totally eliminate the tensioner since the chain is almost tensioned perfectly without it. Other gearing options are 24-40 or 23-41. The 25-39 or 23-41 are more desirable since I would only need to buy 1 gear instead or two gears. I like the acceleration of the XCSP and I don't care so much about top speed since a snappy off the start performance with decent top end is so much desirable than all out top speed which will hurt the bottom end. Plus I was wondering what gearing could help with the rather abysmal fuel economy of stock 2002 Polaris XCSP 600? I went on 130 mile ride on Saturday and every time we filled up the XCSP 600 it would burn consistently about 2 more gallons of gasoline the my 1996 Polaris XLT touring sled.
