Well as you can tell by the title, you know my dillemma. I have the 2000 indy triumph 600 triple and am wondering the pro's and con's of studding. Also if i do consider studding how many studs? What pattern? I know that the # of studs depends upon horsepower but i can't find a HP rating for my sled. Too few will cause pull through and too many will also damage the track and rob power. Any opinions? Any suggestions on installation if i should decide to do so?
I would think 144 would be apropriate for you're sled. I have the 600xc and run 96 I could run 144 but I mostly trail ride. The more you install the least amount of kick out you will get going around turns. Wich makes the sled unusual to cornering. Picked and unpicked sleds ride differently.
Yes use caution anyplace snow is thin and surface is hard. You are going to loose some just try not to loose alot.
