Default 03 zr 900 track and stud recomendations

I did a few searches but was unable to come up with much on tracks for these sleds. I have a snowpro so do i have the 1 3/8 camoplast cobra track stock? The track on there is the original one for sure and dosent have any pullouts but i think is getting a little old. I have quite a few broken and bent studs too. Can anyone recommend a good track/studs for trail riding as well as some good straight line action with my friends? Thanks Mike

Sno Pro stock track was 1 3/8, I don't think they came with cobras in 03.

As far as track and studs.........10 different people will give 10 different answers... It all depends on what "you" want it to be the best at.....deep snow....hard pack...loose trail...ICE....

as far as bent or broken studs that usually means not enough studs ,not enough stud penetration or just plain meathead driving...

I myself drive mostly on hardpack or icy conditions with a whole lot of thumb,
so I run a 1" with 192 hornets (1.34") gives me 9/16"ish above the lug and it works AWESOME

And If you are looking for straight line action Stronger800 has a track for sale that's all about killing your friends on the ice.....if he still has it..

I have a 1 1/4 cobra track with 196 fast track studs. I only went to studs because I do ride ice and hard pack alot. I LOVE the cobra track. Studs tend to be a more personal preference thing.....

50/50. is that in the "assorted" bracket?? or do you need to be less than 1/2?

yeah, variety pack, i use Woody's 1.2 trail chisels and the 4 sided trail studs (dominators?), 96 chisels in the middle, my 900 with that setup (as well as my 1000) almost flips over backwards.

Hmmm, I might have to look into the ripsaw 1.25 as well as the 1" lug track. they sound pretty good. Any reason no one runs the 1 3/8 cobra track? If I do a 1.25 should i do 196 picks? I have a d&d twin pipes and clutch kit. I also plan on doing a powerbreather airbox. thanks

Im going to run the 1 3/8 on my 05 zr 9.. It will some ditch riding, fields, trails and lakes.. for me its all about traction in the powder. I wouldn't even mind throwing a 1.5 on it..

Ok guys, i got a chance to drag my sled out and turn it on its side and take a look at my track. It is a camoplast predator. I have been reading good things on it and may just replace a few broken studs or just make a few suspension adjustments. I have heard that this track is really durable.
