Hi all - I just bought a new 2021 Riot X and have been shopping for a 2" track for midwest riding (planning to swap in the 2.6 when heading west). I came across 2 tracks, one of which is noted as being "new for 2022" with a split alpha window. Its listed to fit the following:

Fits the following 146" models:

2022 Blast M Late Build
2022 Riot X 8000 Late Build
2022 M 8000 Hardcore 146" 2.86-pitch Late Build
(Excludes Early Build models)


What would be different on the rail from a late build 2022 and a 2021 that would make this not fit on a 2021? First image is of the track that they are saying fits a 2021 and early build 2022's and the second is the fitment listed above with the split window. Also, any idea what the benefit would be (ie: does it create better track life)?

The drivers have to be different. They do poke through the window.
The width of the window is the same overall though, or at least it appears to be. Unless the 2021 drivers need the larger window, then that would make sense. The split window track is about $200 cheaper which is why I am hung up lol.
