What is this? Possibly a chain tension?

OK... I was installing a new rear chain and noticed this "worn out piece"... any idea as to what it is?
I installed a new chain because the other was so loose, and worn out, it kept falling off the sprocket.

This seems like it might be a chain tensioner or something like that.

I don't know much about chain driven ATVs but based on my dirt bike knowledge it looks like a chain idler pulley. A lot of times they'll be on a spring tensioned arm under the chain where it returns to the wheel sprocket. Sometimes they are just bolted to the frame and the chain rests on top of it to keep the chain from rubbing on the swing-arm when the suspension is extended.

after searching more and more through stuff on the internet... I've come to the conclusion it it a "Chain Roller Guide". EXCEPT mine is very worn out! LOL

I'll have to check with the local Polaris dealer and possibly purchase one and install.


Thanks
