So I just uncovered my 99 arctic cat zr700 after it sat since last year, wouldnt start so I pulled the carbs and cleaned them, got it running perfect, the track must have been a little seized up so I got it all freed up and got the sled running perfect and all ready for winter!!!!
I brought it to my buddy's house where I store it for the winter b.c I ride directly from his house onto local trails and stuff, was testing it out in the lawn today and when you take off there is a knocking noise coming from the chain case, thinking maybe its the chain drive?
The fluid looks good, and is full, didnt hear these sounds last year, but I have read that 10k miles is when u should look at changing your chain, and this thing only has 4k on it, is it worthwhile to order a new chain right away? or should I take the cover off and inspect it first? This is the only sled I have owned, and while I am a pretty decent mechanic, I dont know all that much about the drivetrain, what do you guys think?
Here is a video of me and my friend ripping it across his lawn and opening her up a little bit and clearing it out :Smoke:
Also, do you guys know where the heck there are grease fittings on this thing? I was looking the other day and cannot find any?!
