Always wear safety glasses and nitrile gloves when servicing your Polaris snowmobile. When replacing skags, always replace in pairs and follow all warnings listed in the Owner’s Manual.

To remove and replace the skags on your 2023-2024 Patriot 9R PRO RMK Slash or KHAOS Slash or your 2025 Patriot 9R PRO RMK or RMK KHAOS, follow these steps:

1. Ensure the snowmobile is on a flat, level surface.

2. Safely raise the sled so the skis are at least 6 inches off the ground.

3. Remove the three skag nuts and washers inside the ski.

4. Pull the skag down and out of the ski to remove.

5. Inspect the skag for wear or damage and replace if necessary. Skags should be replaced when they have worn to half their original diameter and should always be replaced in pairs. New skags are part number 2891042.

6. Align the skag studs to the ski mounting holes and install the new skag.

7. Install the three washers and skag nuts. Torque the nuts to 8 ft-lbs (11 Nm).

8. Once complete, safely lower the snowmobile to the ground.
