I had to have some friends explain this to me, so I'm going to pass it on to you. I hope it helps.

Tech Article

First. Read the manual, and loosen the bolts on the back part of the swing arm.



Tool needed is, the LTR 450 hex wrench that's in your tool bag. If you don't have this, grab one like it or a phillips screw driver.



Second. Locate the holes in the carrier. They should be on the bottom of it.



Third, put your tool in your sprocket hole and then the carrier hole.



Fourth, depending on if it's loose or tight you will move the atv either forward to loosen and back to make the chain tight.

Try to keep the axle on the top side of the carrier, as it was explained to me, if it goes on the bottom of it you will gain ride height (cheaters way) and you'll put more stress on your sprockets and chain and wear them out faster.


Your chain should have about 1.8inches to 2.2 inches of slack in it once you are complete.

Don't forget to tighten up the bolts on the back of the swing arm to the correct torque setting.

This is an excellent write-up and the pics help a lot but I'm a little thick on this one part.

Thanks, just struggling with that part.

I'm sorry it took so long to respond to this..


The carrier looks like an egg shape from the side. The axle will be on the top side of the egg and the adjustment holes will be on the bottom.

It is ok to have your axle facing a little forward or back.


I hope this helps, if not I can take more pictures or even make a small video for you guys.

Good info. Pics and explainations seem to always go further than reading the little manuals they give you from the factory.

I have found though that if you go up to a 37 or 38 tooth rear sprocket your axle won't be at the top of the carrier.

With the 38t and a 98 link chain our axle was at (what I would call) it's rear most limits and with the 37t and 98 link forget it. I used the stock 96 link length with the 37t and it's at it's most forward limit. I keep a close eye on it and everything seems to be ok but with the 37 & 38 tooth sprockets there's no happy medium.

Anyone out there found it different?

Armysig, nice job man. I'd like to ask the mods if we can start a new section for videos like these. Only vidoes (no posts). Call it "video tech" or something like that. Waddaya say?
