It depends on how you ride, but probably around 120. You could probably go with studding the center belt only. What kind of track do you have on it now, is it the stock track?

You will need tunnel and front heat exchanger protectors, I have both that I took off a 99 600, I'd sell them for a reasonable price plus shipping.

Where is your track pre punched.....those would be the best to use.

I'll post a photo of the tunnel and heat exchanger protectors if you are interested, probably $40 plus shipping.

I run 192 in my XTC and it works really well, hooks up really nicely.

Front heat exchanger protectors - drill 4 holes and rivet (be careful not to drill the heat exchanger)

Tunnel protectors - remove the seat and gas tank, drill and rivet.

If your sled pulls as hard as mine I would say at least 144, aything less will be inefficient.

Yea I'd say 144. I'm going to have to stud my sx also. Previous track had 144 but when i bought it, it was missing three windows in a row [:0] There was no way I was going to ride it like that so I put some new rubber on her. After riding it for a year, some close calls, I think its time to do it. Doing a 360 on a lake on glare ice by accident while doing 50 mph, isn't as fun as it sounds. Lucky I didn't flip her or I would of been pretty upset. Tunnel protectors are pretty easy to put in. Like what was said, you drill 4 holes, and rivot them in. CAREFULLY ! don't drill through the heat exchanger. Its happened before. IF you know someone who can weld aluminum, you're okay. I don't know about your sx, but mine will run with the SRX's, and without pics it doesn't hook up the best thats for sure.
