Ski adjustment
 
Does anyone know what the proper toe is on Polaris Indy and Edge chassis and how do you measure it. I was told by a technician that he "thought" it was 1/8" toe in. If I were to measure the difference would center of the tips and center of the heels be the way to go or is there an easier route?

Thanks in advance

Actually, it's 1/8 to 1/4" toe out.

Yep, toe OUT about 1/8th of an inch.

There is a "how to" somewhere that uses a piece of 2x4 and a ruler to do it easily, if I can find it, I'll post the link.

What I've done is useing a long straight edge ( factory edge of plywood, ripped down) and place it along the outside edges of the track (both sides at the same time)

I used some square stock of tubing, have it go most of the length of the track, and to the tip of the ski. then you can measure off of that.

before you mess with toe in, make sure you handle bars are square or straight forward, then measure front and back of each ski to get them parrellel to the sled. if you just moved one ski's toe in to get the spec you might be riding with a consant turn to the right or left.

I just had my head burried in the Polaris maintenance manual. The manual calls out 1/8 to 1/4 inch toe out, measured 10 inches forward and 10 inches aft of your spindle pivot point (ski pivot). If you are measuring at the tips or at the back of the ski it is incorrect.
I just used the 5/8" bar method of setting camber on my 94 Sport, it was a breeze! I had to adjust due to replacement of lower radius rod bearings. (they seized up)
My 1st post on this board, hope it helps!

I always used the method Madcow talked about but I measured off of the studs holding the skegs in place. That way you know that you are getting a proper measurement instead of the side of the ski which is not always straight. I seemed to have better luck setting the ski's with 0 toe. Helped to eliminate any darting.
