Most Polaris's are similar.

Release tension on track
Start on suspension bolts to see if they will move. May require penetrating oil to free them up. Will have to hold bolt on opposite side.

Remove chaincase oil and chaincase cover.
Loosen chain tensioner and remove chain.
Remove speedo cable and housing from LH side of sled.
There may be a collar in the tunnel on the LH side of the sled you will have to remove. May require penetrating oil also.
Remove the lower gear in the chaincase that attaches to the driveshaft for the track. Might have a snap ring to remove, otherwise just a bolt and washer.

Once collar and lower gear are removed, the drive shaft will move freely.

May have to release your suspension springs to get skid out of track.

Unbolt suspension and remove . Remove driveshaft and track.

While you have all of this out it would be a real good time to take all bearings to your bearing supply place and get new bearings and races.

Cutting your track is a very stupid thing to do, it ruins your track. Instead get track drop brackets and smaller drivers.

in the chaincase behind the bottom gear there is a bearing that the driveshaft rides in. you can take that out to remove your track but IMO it is easyer to remove the entire chaincase. the bearing is held in by a snapring. i have never been able to remove just the bearing to swap a track but i herd it can be done
