Track Ratcheting

I would definetly try tightening the tension bolts a bit. Maybe like 1/2 turn increments. Then accelerate hard. Do this till the track doesn't ratchet. You didn't mention your sled make and model. Arctic Cats with the Torque Sensing Link need like 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" of track tension with like 20 pound...

Question about the F6

Thanks to everyone for the responses. I decided to hold off and see what will possibly be offered in the Spring early-order programs, as far as any other options, etc.. . Probably wouldn't get to ride it too much anymore this season, too busy. I'm going to buy my friend's 1985 Yamaha Tri-Z 250 three...

Stud Length

If you hold them next to your track and they are sticking up over 1/2", they are definitely too long. You only want 1/4 to 3/8" over the top of the lugs. Depending on the year of the sled, you probably only need like .920 or slighty taller . I think Stud Boy makes a .960. Lug-height is measured fro...

Question about the F6

I have the chance to purchase an F6, and am wondering what the sled is like (good points or bad), so if you already own one please respond. Also, what is the avg. selling price that people are paying for one? I have a 2000 ZR600, so I would be upgrading to the F6 from this. Shouldn't be a whole lot ...

BEST STUD PATTERN

If it was my sled, I would just stud down the middle. Kind of a durability issue as far as I'm concerned. Never had a pull-through doing it that way. I have a ZR 600 and just ran 96 down the middle in a V-pattern with no problems. My friend with a 670 HO Ski-Doo had 144 studded both inside and outsi...

ZR600, coupled rear suspension or no?

The Arctic Cat coupler kit does involve removing your skid-frame to install a re-inforced rear arm. The kit also comes with a template showing where to drill the holes for the coupling blocks. I installed the kit into my 2000 ZR 600 and thought it made a world of difference. I also have C&A Pro skis...

how many??

I also have 96 up the middle. I've always heard that just studding the middle is better for durability of the track. Depends on how you ride though. What kind are you considering? The 96 on my ZR600 seems like enough for the type of riding I do, and I haven't had any problems with pull-throughs.

None of their ads list one, so they probably don't have one yet. Their phone # is 262.552.5312.

GRAPHICS

If you wait to be a "smart-consumer" like in the above posting, you will be left behind in the snow-dust. With the way sleds are changing just from year-to-year, you can't wait 2 years to let them get the 'bugs out'. I say, buy the new technology and look cool riding it!!
