I order mine from http://www.hiperf.com/

Pretty cheap so I usually buy a couple sets at a time. Best way to do it is when you unbolt it from the front, loosen the track with the suspension supporting its own weight, I use straps from the rafters. Use a vise grip and pull the old ones out, once you get it far enough through a window in the trck, just yank it out. Trim new ones to the one you take off, and after using a little wd-40 in the channel, just push it on the rest of the way.

The best place to get your hyfax is your dealer- 20 bucks plus tax.
I think the best way to replace the hyfax is to pull the skid. I think pulling the skid is fairly painless and doesn't take much time. A lot of guys will say to open 1 window on each side so you can pull the hyfax through without pulling the skid. Either way works fine, but I am not going to be cutting one of my track windows open wider.

Do it now while its still warm so you don't have to deal with it when the sled is covered in snow and water.

Everybody has thier own way. Sometimes they are too well stuck to get it out a window, sometimes not. I've never had to open any windows any more than factory though.
I prefer dish soap to wd-40 though, I believe it washes out better. JMO

Never tried them, buy the cheap ones and replace them every couple years. I have never had to "open" a window to get them out, not on my polaris or my pops XP.

Guess soap would work too, just need something to lubricate the material as it slides on. It is kind of one of those jobs that seems likes more work until you actually do it, but it is pretty simple, or at least it seemed that way to me. Good luck

sometimes you might have to hit the hyfax with a deadblow hammer to get them started where they unscrew.or a big flat head screw driver in the side of the screw hole.it is easier with the skid out if they are stuck on there good.3min to pull skid.with air tools.dont forget to set the gap between the rail and the inner lugs of the track (center track)

you can use astro glide to reinstall easier.hahahah.pam.oil,tranny fluid,gear oil,vege oil for the greenies.butter,anything slickery

20-30min if there on there good.

had a friend run his down to metal and used a hot razor knife and cut the hyfax in 2

You don't have to cut the windows. It's easy to do without pulling the skid. If you aren't saving the old ones and they are stuck, just get a rubber mallet and a dull chisel and tap (EASILY), and the hyfax will come out. SLP also has a tool that you can use. I bought my hi-temp hyfax from SLP also and they come in one length and you just cut to fit. I got those as the cheap ones can be destroyed in one day's ride if the snow is bad or you spend too much time on the trail, even with scratchers.

Just besure to clean the rails before putting the new Hy-fax on. Also check the idler wheel bearings (if still installed). I use a little tranny fluid to aid the slickery part. Not hard to do, but do it when it's warmer than when it's colder.
