1977 polaris colt 340 ss drive shaft

I need a complete drive shaft assembly for a 1977 polaris colt 340 ss.
I'm having a hard time locating one but did find someone who has one from a 1974 colt 340 ss.

Does anybody know if the 74 will fit on a 77?

Hi my book says the 250 - 340 colt series sprocket ratio is 15:35. The 1976 Displ. 244cc model is 13:35 and the 1977 colt ss 340 is 17:35. I do not know about the shafts and if their are compatible.

Sprocket ratio doesn't matter about the shafts. I'm also looking for a drive shaft for a 75 colt 340. From what I've been told by people is that they are the same as 77. The thing is is the drive cogs get extremely brittle and come apart. I know this sounds funny but the best way to test them is to drop them on a cement floor from 5 feet and if they chip they are no good. If they dont chip than they are good to go!
