Advice On Studding Your Track

Question:

Dear Motorhead,

I have 2 Polaris IQ LX (a 2007 and a 2008) with 128″ x 15″ tracks on both. I want to stud the tracks on my own and being a mechanic of 45 years I think I can get it done.

Can you recommend the best pattern, brand, what tools I’d require, etc? You’ve helped me before and I value your opinion.

Thanks,

Jerry

Thanks for your email!

It would be fairly unproductive for me to expound on how to stud your sleds with the expert advice available from SNOWSTUDS.COM. I absolutely recommend visiting snowstuds.com or call 1-888-234-9822 to get all the info on the “how to” of studding.

Here is some advice from my own experience: Do not stud the outer belts of the track. Do not exceed three studs per pitch – I would recommend a max of only two per pitch. Make sure you have good carbides on both sleds after studding as a studded track takes more leverage to turn thus making runners critical. Go to a six inch carbide or ideally a dual runner.

Hope this helps,

Motorhead Mark
