Hey everyone, this is my first post here and I'm looking for some personal experiences some of you may have had with my situation.

I have a 2002 Edge "X" 600 with M-10 suspension. Like any good snowmobiler, I'm looking to replace the stock track with a 1.25" Ripsaw. I spoke with the guys at TracksUsa, and they said some of the Edge's with M-10 don't have enough clearance to fit the 1.25. They said I might have a problem with hitting the tunnel heat exchangers near the rear upper idler wheels.

I plan on measuring to see if I have enough room to fit it, but until then, I was hoping some of you might have had success or failure stories trying to do this same thing.

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Thanks!

If TracksUSA says you might have issues with lug clearance, Id take their word for it. Ive delt with them in the past and they know what they are talking about when it comes to tracks.
Just go with a 1" lug Hacksaw. It doesnt have an aggressive of a lug pattern as the Ripsaw, but for riding on groomed trails its plenty good enough.

Measure the clearance you have now, it should fit. My mom just bought a used '01 600 Classic with the M-10 and it is running a 1.75" track without problems.

Thats true. The Ripsaw isnt the best track in powder because of the fingers the lugs have on them. Whereas a straight lug would grab the loose snow, with a Ripsaw the loose snow tends to slip right between the fingers.
If you do a lot of powder riding, youd be better to go with the Predator track over a Ripsaw.
The Ripsaw is in it's prime on packed-down snow, but its not so good in powder.
