Re: torque spec?

For the Polaris cast aluminum wheels the owners manual says 90 ft/lbs.
Call ITP if you think they might be different.

Re: torque spec?

I heard people snap wheel studs at 90 ft/lbs. and now only torque wheels at 55 ft/lbs.

Re: torque spec?

I set mine at 80 pounds. Anymore than that it feels like it's going to snap. I picked up extras for the hell of it. Polaris price is about $2.00 each.

Re: torque spec?

Don't know what the correct torque would be but I would say 90 lbs is way to high.,(this is car & truck torque specs),(also beware of recomended specs, I twisted off the stud on the the crankshaft on my 660 Raptor replacing the starter clutch, one of many reasons why I now have a 700 Raptor along with the rzr s. Really take a look at the stud diameter and use common sence. (90 lbs is like the old norwegien rule, thighten it till it twists off and then go 3 turns more, I can say that because I am one.

Re: torque spec?

90 is just way to tight for such a small stud....more like 40.

Re: torque spec?

I called ITP and they said 90 for my SS108's. I do 80. Used to torque my Rhino at 45 and lost a wheel.

Re: torque spec?

If they want them torqed to 90 i think the should use A bigger stud.i still use the steels wheels and they dont torqe as tight.It seems like the stud would start stretching at 90lbs.If you take your wheels of alot are you suppost to change the studs every so often?

Re: torque spec?

The Rzr has 3/8" studs and any reference book you choose will only recommend 40-50ft-lbs. max. BUT that's assuming a standard nut that engages only 4 threads or so. The tall closed-end, flat-shoulder lugnuts that come with the Polaris alloy wheels grip the entire exposed end of the stud PLUS the flat shoulder pressing down on bare aluminum (no washer) adds a LOT of friction. This adds up to wasted torque. In short--the 90 ft-lbs you are applying isn't all going to the stud.

IF you apply the 90# correctly (in steps), to clean threads, to Polarus lugnuts you're not likely to snap a stud.

Wrench Re: torque spec?

it is 90ft lbs for ss alloys onto a razr and 28 ft lbs for steel and none we have done have ever come back-make sure to re-torque after every mile for 5 miles-people snap them because they dont follow what they are to do and if you are an agressive rider(which most of you are) you have too re-torque!

Re: torque spec?

im running the T7 ITP beadlocks and they are supposed to be around 90 (like everyone stated) but at 65 it feels like its going to snap... and thats with stepping up from 45 55 65. I'm pretty ruff on mine too and have yet to lose a wheel....(I probably will now that I jinkxed myself..hahaha)

Re: torque spec?

Another thing about torque specs. They are given for clean DRY threads. If you grease the studs you need to decrease torque (less friction=more torque going to the stud). I don't remember how much. Maybe 20%?
