Anybody have any experience with their track skipping or chattering at the front drive gears when climbing or under full power? This is a Polaris 1996 or 7 (cant remember which) 600 xlt-rmk version with a 133 inch paddle track. When climbing at full power or accelerating at full power it acts like its skipping gears unless you let off the power a little. The track is properly tightened.

Thanks!

If the track is definitely tensioned (around 1" gap between track/slides with 20 lb weight hanging on track), could be the drive chain slipping. Did you tension the chain lately? Recommend checking chain tension once a year.
