05' 800 121'' 600 miles every out side paddle came off, dealer said delamination, DOO said abuse. sled has only 2 trips to the UP. any one ever see this?
Yup mine is junk. The ride I lost them on everybody I was with showed zero track wear. I put a 1.5" ripsaw on my sled and rode it this weekend. It hooks up reall well and shows zero wear.djm said:Randy (Paul Aris on here) just had this happen to his 1.65" lug snocross track... see the attached thread. He has a picture of the track with the losted lugs about half way down the first page. My guess is that Camoplast must have had some problems when molding .. for a batch of tracks.. I am running 2" and don't usually do any trail riding but got stuck riding with some buds on the trails last week.. and we weren't wasting any time .. and I still have all my lugs... so I don't think it is typical... with tall lugs.. It is more likely for one to tear a corner or two off a lug catching it on a rock.. I have three sleds with 151's with 2 inch.. and have never experienced the problem.. nor have I with any of the 136 x 2" that we are running.
You would probably have a better chance of warranting it thru Camoplast rather then skidoo. What kind of abuse did doo tell you that the track had? High speed?
Interesting.. I have ridden with nothing but 2" lugs for the last four years.. even put 350 miles on trails last week much to my disgust... must confess I don't like doing that.. as I prefer boondocking.. but the group I was with .. ..I had trouble getting them off the perfectly smooth trails last week... I have never seen that.. happen. Never seen more then a corner or one or two lugs ripped off of track due to catching on a rock.. in the mountains..ROTT said:
My 03 440 track did not rip lugs off either. I my have had a couple rip up higher after 3000 miles. My biggest problem before was studs ripping out.joev said:^ROTT said:
What??? we have two 2003 440x 1.65" lug tracks. trail ride, cross country and the tracks have 90 plus studs. NOT ONE LUG is gone. PLUS my track has 40 1 inch holes drilled out.. ALL LUGS ARE IN THESE 2003 sleds. sorry you just have a bad track. sorry joev
It must have something to do with a bad batch of tracks on the 04 440s.summit22 said:I have an 04 144 with 2 inch lugs and I have 4,000 miles of crappy snow conditions here in MI and all my lugs are still intact. I do lots of trail riding and racing so I ride it like it is a 1 incher.
It was a known problem in 04. The 03 440 tracks were fine, but the 04 tracks were largely junk. The tracks that the 800 factory mods used were much better with taller lugs. No one ever admitted whether there was a problem at Campolast or whether the design called for a harder compound that wouldn't flex.Paul_Aris said:It must have something to do with a bad batch of tracks on the 04 440s.summit22 said:I have an 04 144 with 2 inch lugs and I have 4,000 miles of crappy snow conditions here in MI and all my lugs are still intact.
