Just helped a buddy with his mxz, it wasn't that hard a job, but it makes it easer if you have some one to help you. His had 4 bolts that held the susp. in, plus two on an idler wheel on the top, pulled his chain case and the bushing the speedometer hooks to, pulled out the drive cogs, took out the old track, slid in the new one and put everything back together.

it really is pretty easy,I have done it by myself but it is alot easier getting the suspension back in with another person.
just pay attention to how things are put together while you are taking it apart,I slipped up on my first attempt and put a gear in backwards :doh: it could have been a nightmare but I got lucky and caught it after the first ride

If you do it yourself make you check the bearings on the speedo side , while all of them , but especially speedo one ,because that one is press in and it usually sized first, and will explode and you"ll have problems then! I"m talking from experience ,this happen to me in my 94 mach and back than Ibrought it to the shop and it cost me $700.00 tofix! And after run only low temp grease in it [ grease fitting located on the speedo.] :sly:
