When should I adjust my Ski‑Doo snowmobile drive chain tension?
Chain tension should be checked throughout the season. As you rack up the miles, your snowmobile’s drive chain will stretch and require the chain tensioner to be adjusted. An inspection should be performed at the beginning of every season, and then monthly or every 1,500 km (1,000 miles).
Ski-Doo deep-snow snowmobiles require a bit more attention due to the demanding conditions they operate in. Proceed according to the adjustment schedule below.
- After the first 75 km/50 miles
- Then every 500 km/300 miles up to 1,500 km/1,000 miles
- Then every 1,500 km/1,000 miles
