ok folks heres an update so far

1 got all the shocks and straps in and then pulled them back out having more nitro put in. I started with a 300 psi charge on all of the. fronts not bad but a little to soft, the rears way to soft lost to much ground clearence talked with the guys at fox and got new pressure amount to be set today going 350 in the front and 480 in rear. Hopefully I will have it together tonite. NO i have not driven it yet this was just in the garage rear was to low for a ride I felt. I will keep you all updated.

2 any of you guys had trouble adjusting your locker cables I kow Lenny did make a post about how to adjust and I kinda get it, my locker was working, and since I have reinstalled the rear diff I cant get it to engage its not the diff I can pull the pin on the diff no problem there. Maybe I have the cable routed wrong and now its to long ?????? =( any input thanx

The routing of the cable shouldn't make any differance unless you have is bent around a corner real sharp. Make sure the cable is lubercated and have someone actuate the lever while you check if it is pulling the pin out correctly. There are 2 places to adjust the cable. One is at the differential and the other is at the lever. Also make sure the cable is seated correctly into its adjuster sleeve at the lever side.

Lenny thanx fro the tip!! Ill double check the cable routing last night I sqirted a lot of PB blaster down the cable at the top by the lever didnt come out the other end though, I did adjust the cable once up by the lever and I cant imagine the rear locker wasnt working I know my trails and know were I do and dont need to lock it for wheel slip. I have adjust it back and forth at the diff and nothing yet enless my wife moved the wrong lever lol cable is routed pretty much were it always has been Ill double check it tonite. Should I maybe unadjust it at the lever and start as if its new or just play with the diff adjustment cause thats all I touched??

The main thing is that the cable pulls the pin the right amount. Doesn't matter where you adjust it to get there. When you adjust it, jack up the rear wheels off the ground so you can spin them to feel when it's engaging and disengaging. Once it starts to engage, the pin should be pulled another 1/4" or so.

Ok shock update!

Took shocks to local 4x4 shop to have more nitro put in had fronts charged to 350 psi. Installed the back in trooper I think there gonna be a little stiff no biggie I can adjust down. So I had the front charged by the shop as well I was told the shocks were shipped at 300 psi then come to find out it was 280 the rears were at so I had rears charged at 440. Put rear shocks in buggy and the trooper is a low rider half the ride hieght is gone!!!! So no I'm calling offroad warehouse and I'm pretty aggravated not getting anywhere. The guy I spoke to and bought shocks from is out for next two days and the guy I spoke with wants me to buy bigger shocks I said NO!! So I call fox give them all the info I have collected told them everything that is going on and that I have not even driven the trooper yet! They were shocked lol no pun intended so they say I'll tell u what we stand behind our stuff all the way and something doesn't sound right if u wanna pay for shipping both ways we will set them charge them and go threw them with no charge to you except shipping! I said really hell ya, so the guys at fix call me today say there's hardly any oil in the shocks and they were only charged at 350psi. Of course I'm pissed but kinda relieved there putting about 28cc of oil in them setting them to 500 psi and shipping out tomorrow so I will have them on Friday. So in my own opinion fox has great customer service offroad warehouse is ok but I feel like they dropped the ball and my local offroad shop sux!!!! First test drive should be this weekend!!!!!! Fingers crossed

I found the locking adjustment really finicky too. At first, I had to remove both cables completely, spray Wd40 t clean them, then grease them with motorcycle chain lube. That had them moving smoothly. Once done, I did what Lenny suggested and rasied the ends up, one at a time.

Tip: Use the little red tube WD40 and chain lube comes with, insert it into the cable end and tape it with electric tape to force the fluid through the cable.

Tinman thatnx for the tip on lubing the cable I actually have been squirting PB bkaster down the cable I will try the WD40 as well the tube I think is smaller. Ok the part # for the straps

22" 18122

18" 18118

The lenghts are actually little over 22" AND 18" they said the straps will stretch about 1/2" I got them from offroad warehouse

      Hello all, 
      I just finished replacing my front and rear drive shafts. I drained and put new dif fluid in the rear dif. I went to the local dealer and they told me the fill capacity of the front and the transmission as I want to replcae that as well but they could not tell me how to access the fill. One how do I access the fill for front dif and 2 is the transmission fill the same as the rear dif? I don't see a dip stick or fill for the transmission but all in same area.

      Also, anyone can suggest a good shop/service manual for this bike?

      TLDR (too long didn't read) in blue for quick scanning
      Hey all! I'm new to the Side-by-side/UTV world. We own a smallish farm and decided to go with the 2021 Tracker 800LE Crew. We like the seating and the ride is smooth. However as a newbie I have some questions that maybe some of you longtime side-by-side/UTV owners can help with. We're still in the "break-in" period and it seems that after 30 min or less of driving the dash area gets super hot. You can feel the heat waves coming off the floorboard by your feet and my phone sitting in the little hole (where a radio might go) felt like I left it in the hot sun for too long. The glovebox was also way too hot. 
      So the question is, is this normal, or should I start checking engine coolant and filters? We literal have had it a day. I have read forums and looked up info and can't find anyone mentioning this issue. I just don't want to burn the thing up before we've even put it through it's paces ya know!
      Thanks for any help!

      I'll start by saying i'm learning as i go & have come a long way, but there are some maintenance issues on my mule sx that must be addressed & i've got nobody around with experience & cannot bring it to a shop.
      I've got rolling resistance when i jack up the front wheels. Months ago i thought i was possibly a brake issue but didn't yet have the equip. to pull the wheel hubs or press them back on... but the noise/friction seemed to resolve itself. I just checked up on it because i've got the tools for dealing with the brake system now and i noticed the wheels dont really spin... theres a lot of resistance and i can hear it coming from the front diff. I can't remember if it used to do that before, but i dont think it did. Its not the drive shaft or u-joints, but i've yet to pull them to be certain. it really sounds like its in the front diff. just where the drive shaft connects.
      Should the front wheels - when in neutral and in 2wd and no diff. lock - spin freely? Theres too much drag for mine to even go once around. Can anyone point me in a direction? Otherwise its trial and error with cv axles, ball joints, brakes, etc. and i dont have the $ or time for that. 
      I'm in over my head and really hoping someone can help. I'll try to make a video of whats happening, hopefully the sound will come through well. Maybe that will help diagnose it. Thanks.
