I saw a few other posts here for different year/model, i highly doubt their will be any difference for mine but better safe than sorry.

Wahts the tallest lug track i can get onto my 06 gade using the original drivers (10t? 1.25") or if i switched to 9t drivers?

Im looking to probably grab a 2" track to throw on when we go play in the powder way the heck out in the stix and throw on the 1.25 for normal trail riding and whatnot.

yup, Press off and new ones pressed on, I would reccomend your dealer dooing this, so everything lines up. The Regular drivers are 4 peices, and the Extros are only 2 peices. With the ammount of snow a 2in Paddle moves, I would reccomend extros to avoid track ratcheting.

Yes, they press on. I switched mine to 9 tooth extros with a 2in lug. Make sure you make some marks on the shaft before you start pressing them off. Just so you know where the new ones go.

The extros are recommended for obvious reasons but not necessary. I ran a 2" on my 04 (10T) with no problems. I did go to the 9T extros so I could run the track loser but not needed for track clearance. Remove the tunnel protecters with the track is NOT notched.

BTW: I thought I was going to swap my tracks and only run the 2" in the mountains but actually prefer it on all the time. Given we normally ride as much off trail as possible and I don't care much about top end.

Seeing how the extros are completely different marking the shaft does little good... Once everything is out put the shaft on the track (aligned correctly) and put a square on the floor up against the track. Now measure from the edge of the track (sqaure) to the center of the drivers. Note this measurement and use it to align the new drivers..

I don't mark the exsiting drivers, Just center punch the dead center of the shaft. Then measure out from there.

Yeah, I understand that but the center to the "edge" of a std driver will not be the same as the center to the "edge" of an extro. Unless you are putting a square (would it fit) in there and measuring from the center of the shaft to the center of the drivers I can't see how this would work.

I guess the point is.. However you do it make sure you get a measurement so you know exactly where the "center" of the drivers need to be aligned..

I used a digital caliper and it seemed to work but i'm sure other people have other ways that work also.
