If you lost only one, it wont really matter. It all depends on how many you put in to begin with. If you have less than 144, it will click a little bit but no worries.

here is the thing how did you "lose" it? did it rip out of thwe track? if so you need a new track plain and simple. Did it just break? if so it sucks but I would wait a until they all need to be replaced to do that. I know a guy with lots of broken studs in his Mach Z he just says screw it cause he hates the sled and wants to get rid of it.

The stud did rip out ( don't know where when or why) through the track leaving a hole the size of the head (1" or so). I've put 200 miles on it since and it hasn't gotten any bigger? Should I be worried - I wanna get rid of it after this year and don't wanna buy a new track!

If you have spun a stud out of the track it means that you are spinning too much. I did this on my last sled. I avoided adding and spun more out of my track. I was told that this is because I am too aggressive in relationship to the number of studs. I would add mnore studs to stop spinning and throwing.

mutt it is prolyl cause you ride on bad trails and just keep ripping. Seems to be why people lose picks most of the time. ANd trail I would have to say you should get a new track man. SUcks but that is the way it is. Happened to my dad last year. THere are places that repair tracks maybe if it is small they can take care fo it. You have to look into that I can't help you do that.

Loosing 1 stud from the center of the track is no big deal. As long as the track doesn't rip I wouldn't worry about it. Just don't be over aggressive in your riding, I pulled studs by locking up the track on very hard packed stutter bump trails. That was on my old sled, lesson learned!

as long as the rip isnt moving to the outside of the track you should be fine. like most of us who keep our sleds like 3 years then sell, if it aint bad it should last w/o doin to much more damage. if your dealer is like mine when i traded, he looked at the engine, the hood, the shocks in the back, started it up and said ill give u $1500. didnt even look at the track w/ 3 holes from ripped studs....hahaha
