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?!

The track is loose and the drivers are skipping on the inner lugs, tighten up the track a little at a time until it quits.

Nice ski, I cant help you fix it but if you need parts for it let me know, I get snow parts cheap. Man that looks fun, wish it snowed every so often here.

Ok I will give that a shot, do you think it is worthwhile to check out the chain case as well? maybe replace the chain and sprockets? thanks a lot!

Good to know, do you think you could price out the sprockets and chain for the chain drive for my sled? I would def prefer to buy from you, it is a 99 arctic cat zr700, I found the chain on dennis kirk as well, but if you have a good price, I will def buy, thanks a lot!!!!
