I plan on studding a new track with these double backers. The lug height is 1.5". I will be using 1.625 or 1.75 studs. Any feedback on these? I am used to using  double aluminum backers with tall nuts with good results. thought I would try something new, might save a bit of spinning weight as well?

We really like these backers.  They are certainly not the easiest to install; however, they hook up extremely well, look good, and are durable.  Here's the singles we put on our 850 MXZ X

I'm running them on my 09 800 and like them a lot.
They seem to have a bit extra scoop and better traction than traditional studs with flat backers.
Weight savings is a plus.
Goodwin stocks them too.

My experience was that they were complete crap. I cracked 6 or so on the first ride. Another 5 or 6 on the second.

Went back to metal backers and tall nuts and never looked back.

They look to be more "nylon" in the photos, less prone to cracking. I don't wish to have this happen. Thanks for info.

Have run them with 1.45" MegaBites on the turbo 1200 for over 6000 miles and never repleaced one. Putting them on my 280 HP Sidewinder too.

 

I like to tap them half way thru or so before install as it prevents them from stripping out and seems to have extra holding power. Takes about 2-3 minutes to do 48 doubles with a tap and a reversible drill. I love them in a 1.25" track and the extra traction they provide, not sure how well they would work in a 1.5" track however.

Is that a 1 ply or 2 ply Knapp? Im thinking of using them on a cat turbo 225 flash with a 141in cut to 1.25,trail riding. Are those the 1/2" ones?

That is a single ply in the Doo turbo at 220-240 HP using 3/4" Super Lite double backer.   

 

I'll use the 3/4" Super Lite Plus double backers which are larger for the Sidewinder and the same 1.45" Mega-Bites for a bit of additional support with its higher HP output at 280 HP.

Knapp Attack ,
What size tap doo you need ? I've studded at least 5 tracks with these backers and have had Zero problems ! I heard the black backers ones are the strongest !

I've never had an issue with the black ones when tapped 1/2 way thru. Also, tapping them may take some stress off of them. Tried it without tapping and would strip them out before the head sunk into the track properly.

 

For tap I use whatever thread is on the Megabite, if I remember correctly I think its 5/16-24.

Used the doubles on my 13 XRS 800.  168 studs i believe. 6400 miles on a 1.25" single ply ripsaw, and not one single issue.
