well, i've decided to hold off on the 1.25" track for now, but i am looking at 96 woody's studs for $100- good or bad? sorry, no info right now other than .92(?) in, but i'm sure they're top of the line. also, i need new carbides, and if i don't go with studs, can i go with longer carbide or would that be overkill for my sled? i don't even know what the stock length was, but any suggestions would be great.
I've got a 99 XC500 and have 96 1" studs with
6" carbides. I think your lug height is.82.
Personally I think you will need at least a 1" stud. That gives you .18 of penetration.
As they wear you will have less so they will somewhat still function. A friend of mine recomended putting them all in the center and none on that outside strip. Less chance of catching an edge and ripping out studs or worse yet rolling the sled. I've had this set up four 3 seasons and 3800 miles and I love it. Studs are a little worn but they still dig. Hope this helps.
My father, in an attempt to keep up with me, bought 144 studs and aluminum backers for his 2002 ski doo mxz 800 got them at a placve here in michigan called magics and he paid $144 for it all. he was told by the sales guy, that happens to be a friend of ours, that they were new this season and came with a no break gaurntee. the odd thing about them is that they measure them differently than my woodys that are 1.075 i believe these measured longer but had the same length from stud point to outside of track. i helped install them this weekend and seemed to look the same as my woody's
well, just an update but i'm not getting either the studs or the track this year. for that matter, i'm probably not going to install my new slides, get my new carbides, or even top off the gas tank yet this year....
