133.5", fuckers almost identical to my SKS. You have more track lug than my SKS I see.

pitch and lug are different, pitch refers to the size driver you are running, ie a 2.52 pitch.

You should be able to drop to 2.52 pitch 8 tooth drivers which are a smaller diameter than your stock 9 or 10 tooth drivers. BUT the smaller driver also changes your drivetrain ratio meaning you will probably have to re-gear.

Check the front bulkhead clearance you have now and that will tell you how big of a track you can run

Example: If your stock track is 1" and you have 1" of clearance between the tip of the lug and the closed point around the track(tunnel or coolers) then you'd be able to safely run a 1.5" or even a 1.75" track

i did feel that way till i road with them, now i love the damn things. stopping,traction and if u got to run down gravel road, its nice to be glued to the road so u dont eat it at over 70. But thats running country and back home in Ia where i grew up(Muscatine Co. got some killer ditch trails)if ur lucky enough to have groomed to ride, then im jelous and understand ur point of view

I was the same. I actually got concerned with them early on. I had a Yamaha 440srx(worst sled I ever owed) and I had it up on the stand checking things over and it was studded and I pitched a stud through my garage busting out the window on the far wall. I ride with my kids behind on trails so this concerned me. So I went many years without, until couple years ago I was zipping down a country road (I know not smart) and hit a rut that kicked it sideways... being icy I then proceeded to swing the sled back and forth at the edge of losing it at every swing. Just about caught it and slowed enough, but ran out of road ended up barrel rolling it few times, ripping off my New mirrors, destroyed my New windshield, and ripped a seam out on the seat I had just spent a week making the panels and stitching together, that's not to mention I had my daughter on the sled with me and had to pick her up and dump her off the sled just before I barreled it through the ditch so she would not catch the sled. Probably the scariest moment I've ever had riding.

I think the safety factor alone is worth the cost. Put guides on the trailer or an old track.

a friend ate it at 80-100ish on a gravel road last winter, if hed have picked the track then the ass end wouldnt have swung out. His fault for not thinking,but he totaled a brand new Skidoo, regaurdless, he coulda made his wife a widow and his kids daddyless!! Not preaching,just saying if ur on both trail and country roads and lakes its best to have pics. Wood is cheap compared to hosptial bills and or death bro, just saying

My sled is studded, came that way with 1.875" studs. Not really impressed, studs don't do too much offtrail. Next track won't have them.

Nope studs do nothing off trail. They are for ice or hard pack snow. They are nice in hard packed snow if for nothing else then to bust it up so you kick snow into the coolers.

If you always ride deep snow or off-trail they are not needed and wasted money and added weight. If you ride trails or lakes they are very helpful.

As always they are a personal preference that varies with every rider for different reasons.

Ridding the "lake" here and the trails I still don't find them overly useful. And right now the portage is pretty much all iced over.

I would like to save the $200- it cost to stud a track. but then I would be sitting at the bottom of the trails that go up hillsides. they get spun to ice.

Wow Stagsex, if you replace your track every time you tear a few lugs you're going to be a very, very poor man.
