Would be great to hear some real World testing of this Talon 67.
It's the only other option for 165 G4 Summit X with 3,5 pitch.
Unfortunately they do not make the Talon 66 for 165 with 3,5 pitch, it would be my choise. Really like the idea about track with both hard and shoft lugs.

I have one, but snow sucks so no real riding with it yet.

It is soft, propably works on powder really well. On packed snow I could imagine that it is like other tracks on this category.

I have 154 with 3,5 pitch and weight of that was 55.11 lbs.
Interesting. From my spec research, I thought a stock 165 3" was around 40lbs and the W67 is 60lbs.

I did the mountain testing last season this track...

Hands down the best track in the 2.5" catagory...

Does not weigh 20 lbs more, on average -5 to +5 lbs depending on track-BJ

3300 miles on my stock track and its ready to shed a few lugs, going to try this track as well
Wow nice work, its taken me a couple small bottles of loctite 404 to get my track to where it is now at 2500kms! I'm the slow guy on the trail as well, that track has been babied on the surfaces that would hurt it. excuses excuses eh!

Camso conquerer is another 3.5" pitch option. 2.8 is the lug height. I rode one briefly last season on a Polaris and wasn't impressed.
I'm also in need of replacing my stock track. I'll be going used oem. I like the performance of the stock track in my local snow, but the cost of a new replacement is unjustified.

Ya there's also a 2.6 lug conquerer now as well. Haven't read a whole lot of good about the conquerors regarding durability. The cost of a new w67 can be justified, but a new stock track can not, 600$ more than the w67...ya no thanks

Made this puller to get caliper off bearing.

bought these spacers a while back, track change was a good excuse to get them put in place finally.

this track replacement went so smoothly. Had everything prepped for install. Clean bolts ready for loctite. Took the chance to go over skid and make sure all is ok there. The ZRP lockout washers are wearing a bit, tmotion has 1/4 movement to usual movement. Now to ride and give a ride report. So cold at the moment tho, mid week hope to get out.

Finally got out and got to test the track in some really deep powder!
Road ride up was smooth and cruising speed seemed a little higher. Way less vibration!
In the deep, I could braap it along and it would maintain momentum, or I could full pin and out it comes up on top! And away we go! Tried to do a few trenching scenarios, slow start on an uphill in the deep as an example, but it keeps the sled moving and gets on top. Was worried going to the 15" wide I was going to loose some flotation...not the case
Sled feels more playful and is really fast from edge to edge (zmotion & tmo delete)
Engine rpms never changed, but it seems the engine has an easier time getting to full rpm? Less rotational spinning weight?
Either way, for the one ride i have on it, I couldn't be more stoked!
For the price I paid $899 I'm happy to be rid of the stock 3" and have some peace of mind my track isn't going to blow apart!
