Toe Alignment

Use the following procedure to check the toe alignment of the vehicle.
The recommended toe alignment is 1/8" to 1/4" (3-6 mm) toe out.
WARNING! Severe injury or death can result from improper toe alignment and
adjustment. Do not attempt to adjust tie rod alignment. All tie rod adjustments
should be performed by an authorized Polaris dealer.
1. Position the vehicle on a
level surface.
2. Place the handlebars in a
straight-ahead position.
3. Tie a length of string
between two stands as
shown in the illustration.
Position the stands so
that the string is flush
with the side of the rear
tire. If available, you
may use a long straight-
edge instead of string.
4. Measure the distance
from the string to the
rim at the front (1) and
rear (2) of the front rim.
The rear measurement
should be 1/16"-1/8" (2-3 mm) more than the front measurement on
each side of the vehicle to obtain the recommended 1/8" to 1/4" (3-6
mm) toe out alignment.
5. Repeat the measurement procedure on the other side of the vehicle.
6. If you discover improper alignment, see your Polaris dealer for ser-
vice.
