i just bought a sled and it had a brand new track with old studs. i took the studs out and thought i was going to put new ones, but im not. i was wondering if it is bad for the track to have holes in it with no studs
any tip is helpful
i dont see any harm in doing it. but one of my friends father owns a yamaha dealer and he said that its not good for a track. as of tonight i have 78 miles on the sled and nothings happened yet.
thanks for the tip.
Geezz. I give you a tip and you make me jealous with your "78 miles" comment. No sign of snow here. I had a piped 650 Indy in the 90's that I rode hard for 3 seasons after I removed studs and I sold it with that track on and he put another season on it.
ive heard good stories on the 96 ultra. my sisters boyfriend had one. he had aftermmarket heads dynoport triple pipes, reeds, well clutched, and im sure some other stuff. and i was told that he burry the needle no problem and was in front of some 800's. my next sled would possibly be an ultra.
Well Ive been harping about this sled so much on here that the regulars are probably sick of hearing about it . But yes it was extremely reliable and it now has 10000 miles on it with no problems at all. It still runs great. I am selling both my sleds and will keep which ever one dosnt sell. If I keep the Ultra I will throw a new bottom end in it just to be sure. But theres nothing like the look on peoples faces when their new 800 twin takes a wuppin.

Its all true . My ultra is modded as well and it is faster than my XCR
Faster than your 800 tripple?! Wow, that's pretty good. What pipes do you have in your Ultra?
Megaman, I can't believe you haven't heard me bragging about this machine on here yet. It has the legend kit plus clutch kit from a drag racing team in the States plus PSI modblaster II lake race edition pipes. The legend kit includes flowed and bored carbs, reeds, heads, helix, and springs plus a legend motor plate to keep everything together. I also have UFO's which really worked on this combo in the lower mid-range. I ran 86 mph. in 440 feet at the local grass drags. This speed was second on the day to a fully modded T cat who ran only 89. And all this with nearly 10,000 miles at the time.
