Polaris 500 Offroad Vehicle User Manual

Toe Alignment
Do not attempt to adjust tie rod alignment. All tie rod adjustments should be
performed by an authorized POLARIS dealer.
Use the following procedure to check the toe alignment of the vehicle.
The recommended toe alignment is 3-6 mm toe out.
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 2-3 mm more than the front measurement on each side of the
vehicle to obtain the recommended 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
