Hey guys i was looking at getting a 1989 polaris indy 500. I was just wondering what the deepest lug i could put on this sled would be? i know Royal Distributing in barrie has a 121" x 15" x 2" challenger track would this fit on it? would i have to loosen off my limiter straps off a bit to get more clearance?

Thanks any help would be appreciated Adam

Your going to need to do more than just loosen the limiter straps to fit a 2" under that. Your probably going to have to move the skid/re-drill mounting holes and maybe go with smaller cog drives to clear...someone else can confirm this though. I know 1.25" will fit with no problems and I think a 1.5" will rub. I think I read some where that someone shaved the fins off the front cooler to get the clearance between the cog and the front cooler...

1.25" is max lug height for mid 90s, I'm not sure if it would fit in an '89.
I would not recommend shaving the fins off the front cooler.
you can't move the mounting holes of the skid rearwards-- not only would the track not fit, but it wouldn't create any more clearance-- the driveshaft is in a fixed positioned.

thats why you get smaller cogs on the driveshaft. you have to drill the front mounting hole lower and buy a drop bracket for the reer so your rails dont stab through your track. this is my summer project

I forgot... IMO removing material from the front cooler is not a good idea, as stated. [Disappointed]
