Here is my fourth attempt at a Jolaris swap. I thought I had documented my original 500 swap but guess I didn't. I just finished one for a BN member but didn't feel it was my place to show case his buggy. Seeing as I am doing another one for me I thought I would pass on my take on this very worthwhile conversion. Yes I have done the 400 2 stroke swap but was never really happy with it. Too temperamental for my taste.

Here I am modifying my spool to move the sprocket over and to accept a Polaris sprocket. On the conversion I did for the BN member I made an adapter for his spool just in case he would ever need to replace it. I will weld a new flange on mine and machine it down for the split sprockets that I have run on both my conversion with no problems.

File comment: Here is what it looks like cut off. Joyner actually has a raised area just for the flange.

Good luck my friend. I'm sure it'll be first class as always. :D

P.S. - still patiently waiting for you to build one from the ground up :wink:

Those holes dont line up exactly but better than I expected. For making cradles for folks maybe you could have them measure there width spacing to help take out some of the offset. Looking good better get busy though.

I do plan to do one, it is kind of in the works. For now I am going to have to be happy with this. The scratch build will be a 4x4 tho. A friend has a nice quad for me as a donor I just need to pull the trigger on it and get going. Since I have retired I have been busier than a one arm paper hanger.

Taking notes as I watch. :D

Just need to find a good (inexpensive) donor Polaris. Still keeping my eyes open for a 150 as well for you.

Worked on the spool today. It is now in the cradle so now I can locate the transmission. Things should move a little quicker now...I hope any way.

If you look at the last picture on my last post I took a sharpie and marked the area where the bearings ride so you can see how much it is moved to the right.

This is a spool adapter I did on the Joyner I converted for BN member. We opted for this just incase he needed to replace it later for what ever reason. So a stock spool could be used.

File comment: You can see the adapter ring I bolted to the spool between sprocket.
