If any one has any insight to the following question it would be of great help.

Studding the track: This will be my first time having both of my sleds studded , but after riding in Canada and hitting some ice on the lakes ; I desided to have my tracks picked. I of coursed would have asked some on my buds . But they have studs that can ride up a tree.

tahnks for any input.

Kinda confused - what exactly is your question?
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

HMMMM
I think your asking how big of a stud to use???
I think the rule of thumb is just so 1/4 to 3/8 inch stick beyond the lugs of your track. I hope thats what your looking for.

I have an 03 F7 that is brand new. Do you think I NEED studs, and if so how long is the "break-in" before I put them on?

I put mine on before I rode it, I don't feel there is a break in period for picks. I would go slightly longer than your lug like 3/8 inch.

I have used Gold Digger by Woody's. Be sure you only go 3/16 to a 1/4 inch longer that your track lug. You'll bend them easily if you go to long.

Check out Woody's site at www.wiem.com They have a application chart to advise you on what size and length, as well as how many for your riding style.

I have used the gold diggers with good results also.
