My awesome Polaris dealer had it done in less than an hour and didn't charge me for it. Stripped bolt out, and installed the new helix for me.

They said it wasn't the first time that's happened. They have even broken Snap-On brand Torx bits that were made for an impact gun. The owner once ground down all four corners (where the bolts are) on a helix because he couldn't get the bolts out.

Hell I dunno, but I trust them to do it right. Already installed the clutch back on the sled. now if only we had snow....instead of this stupid rain. It rained in the mountains even, so the PERFECT snow that was up there is gone now, before I ever got a chance to hit it up.

Oh I know right? That place really is the middle of freakin nowhere. Anyway, I'm going to Carter Lake instead. I've never been there and only vaguely know where its at, but I'm going with people who do. Up in the mountains somewhere, thats all i know.... Should have a group of 5 or so people. Gonna be fun. Hope the new sled doesn't give me any problems, I am slightly worried about it.

Dang dude, that would be scary. Some guy just got lost up in the hills while riding a few days ago, he ran out of gas and tried to walk out. Was out overnight and very hypothermic when he was finally found.

Luckily I've got a crazy good sense of direction, carry a GPS and a SPOT emergency locator. Only thing I don't have is an avalanche beacon, which I REALLY need to get...

Maybe some, but not the SPOT. A SPOT is a gps device that can send out a ping every 10 minutes showing your location. It can also send out predetermined messages to selected emails or phones, but it's main uses are the HELP function, which sends a message to selected emails or phones saying you are in need of assistance, and most important, the SOS function which alerts emergency response crews of your location and that you need help NOW.
