Default Polaris 14' Assault RMK 800 build

     

Figured I'd share what I'v been up to!

After this years fishing season in Bristal Bay I decided to buy another sled, and happened to stumble across a deal I couldn't pass up.

Turns out the sled had quite the story behind it. The guy I met to pick it up is a pro rider and is featured in many riding films, this exact sled was used in the film Winter Project which came out a couple years back.

specs on the sled
2014 Assault RMK 800, 155x2.4" track. 20xx miles on it.
has van amburg bulkhead and tunnel braces
under seat bag as well as a dash bag.
C&A pro XT skis
stiffer valved shocks

Issues with the sled
bowed running boards from taking some seriously hard landings
slightly tweaked a arm
crank shaft broken in half
rear section of tunnel slightly tweaked
hood was painted & is flaking

initial purchase price $2,200.




Picked up a good bottom end for $300



got bored one day and started drawing up what I wanted to do for a rear bumper/tunnel brace



got the first template made, I will use this so I can make more in the future.



PO had swapped the stock shocks for a set of stock pro shocks, no idea why. So I yanked the stock pro shocks for a set of custom build walker evens done by ryznar industries that I already had



added a gas rack that I already had



Replaced the stock running boards for a set of Skinz air frames that I already had




straightened the tunnel


got bored so started to polish the tunnel




Spent $300 on pistons/gaskets. I went with aftermarket SPI pistons sense they have groves in the skirts to retain oil and prevent scoring.



heres a little time laps of the engine going together. feel free to check out my channel, I do regular uploads.

Everyone in my group "Noon Crew" has called this the Project Assault, so I went ahead and made it official


Now I'm at the point I need to finish building a rear bumper/brace and get a new A arm for it.

Well, its done (enough to ride) and I was supposed to take it out this weekend, but I some how managed to hurt my achilles tendon on my left leg. so I had to sit out this weekend. Hopfully I'll be good (enough) to be able to ride next weekend. But a this point I'm just looking forward to being able to walk

Swapped out the stock front suspension for a 43" zbroz high clearance suspension

Picked up a OFT racing pro armor tether



I also SCORED a series 6 155/2.6 track (according to Polaris website retails for $1,200) for $150! still have yet to install it

Heres a vid, at the end you'll see a quick clip of me riding. Will be posting a riding video soon though!!

I also did some clutch work on the sled, if your not familiar with CVT setup you may find it interesting.
