First you want to raise the rear end off the ground. Then take a ratchet strap and pull the rear bumper and axle together so it collapses the spring and shock. Now you loosen the two pinch bolts at the very end of the rear axle arm. Take a punch and put through the hole of the eccentric axle housing, turn down to tighten or up to loosen, or roll the rear wheels forward or backwards to do the same thing. Leave at least a 1/4 inch of slack in chain. Now tighten the pinch bolts to 60 ft-lbs, remove ratchet strap, and lower rear end. Check regularly for proper chain slack.

There are three hoses on a Polaris 300 carburetor. The fuel line is the large one. One is a vent hose that goes nowhere, and the oil injector line connects to the small hose connector on the right side, nearest to the air intake. It goes straight out.
