Hey

Have an '05 f7efi.......considering it's mild and raining right now..... bang your head .........i decided today to adjust my belt deflection. Haven't tried sumthing like this before... :wacko: ........but have done a tonne of reading/searching on this site :site: and feel pretty good. Get out my manual/AC tool kit and pop tha side plug off the belly pan..... Cat happy........but then got stuck, nowhere to put my 3-prongged tool to remove adjuster/shims/o-ring. :eek: There's a bolt at the end of my secondary.......does that come off first and then i use the 3-prong tool??......or was there an update for '05's?

thanx

the reason i ask is cuz i looked up on arcticcat online parts diagram and don't see this 'bolt' at the end of the secondary.......making me wonder if it's been updated.......



I dunno

Yes that is the updated secondary adjuster. Change deflection by adding/removing shims same as before. Adding shims/ less deflection... take out shims/ more deflection. Just make sure to put it up on a stand and engage cluctch after adjustment to get an accurate reading.
