Default this what i need to run the 136?

Ive been searching around for 8" idler wheels and offset driveshafts.

For those that dont know im upgrading my 133.5 track with extra 10 to a longer track with all stock parts possible.



this is what i came across, but all this is new to me and i dont wanna spent stupid money and waste money on parts i dont need.

I would call Avid Products, tell them your situation and ask them about this.

You know I've heard there is enough adjustment to fit a 136" track on a 133.5" skid. Only down side is it takes all the adjustment to do it. What size are your rear wheels now 6.5"?

You could try a 7.25" wheel and it may work with some adjustment left. Unless your dead set on spending the money for an offset axle that is.

That's what I thought. I've already told you to get bigger wheels. If you get a 7.25" wheel you could fit a 136" track on your current setup. The wheel will probably go not quite1/2" below the hifax but it's do-able.

Rich, you need an offset axle in order to use larger wheels.

8" wheels would be too big. I'd try finding a 7" wheel, 7.25" if the other is unavailable.

Why? Is there a clearance issue with something else? I realize it won't be ideal and it'll ride lower than the hifax. I'll look better at my sks tonight.

I just think that would be a lot of pressure on the axle and bearings, maybe I'm wrong but that's the way I would do it. Call the pros and ask them.

1. i wouldnt spend money on billet wheels smaller than 9"
2. dont think 9 inch wheels would fit on the inside of a 133
3 chicks say size doesnt matter but anything less than 9" is not really worth the effort.

If he were to install a 7" idler in place of his current idler then the wheel will be what, 3/8" lower than the hifax? Run it, I plan to. If you plain ass don't want to buy bigger wheels, run what you've got. I've read you can fit a 136" if you max out the adjustment, the whole reason in putting the 7" wheels is so you have some adjustment rather than none.

What are some other opinions, too much stress on the axle?

I've seen a track that has run 8" wheels on it without the offset axle and it caused a lot of wear on the track where the wheels were contacting. That is the only wear point on the track all the way around in back instead of the clips riding on the hifax. You can find cheaper wheels as well, I run the avid composite wheels on my mod and they actually look good and are like $35/wheel. Erick from SF used to run them on his IQr mods too.

There is a huge difference between 7" and 8" wheels. That would be another 1/2" below the hifax which I wouldn't do.

offset axle. with 9" wheels and put it on backwards. that will add some adjustment to the rails.

Do you know what that track is out of, or what the number is on it? (look by the camoplast logo there will be a #)

I found a 99 RMK track on snowest and that one looks similar.

The 8" big wheels from Avid are very reasonably priced.

not really there is about an inch difference. ha!


go with a wheel company, like others said if money is tight try the cheaper composite wheels. do not get the cheap wheels from hiperf.com or dennis kirk. they will not last on anything more than a fan sled on ice. once you hit that first big bump the cheap aluminums will break. you get cheap wheels for 60-80 dollars and very good wheels for 90 dollars. not much difference in the long run.
