Great thing about the forum is that everybody is helpful! I self taught myself on my Prowler, but without the forum it would have been a struggle! I'm a older person, I am a Hot Rodder by heart! Only thing is that I found out I was very limited on heavy work as I aged. The Prowler afforded me a new outlet to screw things up! LOL

I've accidently dropped the chain into the case while working on the top end! Sucks! About half the time I can retrieve the chain if I'm lucky! LOL Good Luck! Motor can stay in your Prowler for this! I do recommend pulling the floor and seat pans for working room!
Gentlemen, I'm looking at the same problem on my 2009 700 xtx. The chain is trashed. the cam gear looks good. I just replaced the tensioner but I can still pull the chain up off the cam gear by about .100". I downloaded the manual but didn't see any mention of the pulling the chain off the crank gear. I was assuming that I had to pull everything and split the case but i'm hoping it's the same on a 2009 as a 2008. So before you pull the belt and wet clutch I need to pull the valve cover, head and the cylinder? If that's the case I'll need to buy the cylinder to block gasket, head gasket and chain? What else do you think I should pick up? If pulling the cylinder would you recommend honing and replacing the rings?

Sorry for so many questions. This is next weeks project with my boys.

I'd avoid pulling the head, the bolts are a one time use affair! I've reused head bolts and have had a 50% success rate. I usually ended up snapping one off! Finally went to cylinder/head studs to eliminate the factory bolts. Head and cylinder do not need to be disturbed in order to change the timing chain.
