Default Track selection 340

My 8 year old is all about powder but his edge 340 track isnít cutting it. Even if I kept the 121 and went with a taller paddle.

Any track with 1.25" or larger lugs will be an upgrade however the real improvement comes with increasing the footprint(longer track) as the 340 is limited so we need to rely on flotation rather than track speed........

So with 1.25Ē i wouldnít have any issues with fitting? If I went to the 1.5Ē would I have to modify? I think Iím going to stick with the 121 for now since he only weighs 65lbs.

According to other members a 1.25" lug is the biggest you can install with the factory drivers (9 tooth). That said you really need to measure the clearance between your existing track & tunnel before you make any changes.

FWIW, Devilmanak installed a 1.75" track with 8 tooth drivers on his machine but said it was tight. Thread here: https://www.snowest.com/forum/showthread.php?t=433969

We installed a 1.75"(2.52 pitch) track on our '96 Indy Lite with 7 tooth drivers & there was plenty of clearance. Probably could have even squeezed a 2" lug in that machine with the 7 tooth drivers.....

My 1.25" x 136 off a 550 Trail RMK works awesome. Geared it down in the chaincase and let it go.

I think Iím going to try the 121 Predator 1.25 for now. Should be huge upgrade from what he has now. You think Iíll be ok with stock gearing?

Stock gears should be fine for now.

I think you can add a little more tension in the secondary by moving the spring to the next hole if you need it to rev a little more at engagement.

The 121" X 1.25" track will be an improvement but not a huge one IMO.

I can respect if you are on a budget but just make sure you calibrate your expectaions accordlingly. If the riding terrain is mostly flat with little fresh / deep snow, the 121" choice will be fine. If you want spend time on some beginner hills with moderate deep snow the rider will be frustrated(& you too).

My 2 cents....
