Just picked up an 03 pred that needed a new carrier... It also came with an 06 swing arm. Guy I bought it from said the 06 is a direct bolt on it's just a little bit longer so I would have to get a new chain. Is that correct or am I gonna need to get an 03 swing arm to make everything work? I purchased a rad mfg double bearing carrier. Should it just be put it all back together and new chain and I should be good or am I gonna need different parts? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

the 2006 swing arm is actually about 1 inch longer than the 2006. polaris says the 2003 is 5/8 inch longer than the 2004 thru 2007 swing arms, but the 2 203 arms i have measured 1 inch longer. they will all bolt right up though. totally interchangeable but the 2003 rear shock is a bit longer and with the shorter 2006 swing arm the rear of the machine will be very tall.

As far as I'm told, the rear shock is the stock 03. So in case the guy who sold me the bike had it backwards or was confused possibly. If I go with the longer of the two swing arms I should be ok and the carrier I purchased should fit into either of them no problem?

Awesome! Thanks for the help, I'm hoping that's all I need to have this thing ripping and ready to go. Most the other stuff is rebuilt or new so fingers crossed I don't run into any other issues... I'm pretty confident I can get it all back together after looking over the manual. But it seems like, measure swing arms take the longer, put the carrier in, install axle then button up everything and it should be hopefully good to go!

Awesome. I know it is not related but I like to tie that brake line away from the rotor. It just gives me some piece of mind[smile] Anyway hope it turns out alright.

Well I'm gonna grease it up tonight, from what I have seen on other carriers people say they blow the seals from the pressure while greasing them... Any way to prevent this besides drilling and tapping another hole as a vent and plugging it after?
