Wheel Nut Torque Specifications
Check the wheel nut torques occasionally and when they've been loos-
ened for service.
Improperly installed wheels can adversely affect tire wear and vehicle
handling, which can result in serious injury or death. Always ensure that all
nuts are torqued to specification. Do not service axle nuts that have a cotter
pin installed. See your Polaris dealer.
