I order a XCR 850 with a 1.35 track and I was just wondering that if a put on a 1.6 track will I have to re gear it and clutch it or will it be fine without doing anything. Thanks.

Why didn’t you order it with the 1.75?

Indeed, no 1.6 worth using IMO...at least not compared to the 1.75 BC. By far my favorite track.

Have them toss one on and see if they will give you a credit. If not just sell it or keep it for a spare. I had a dealer toss a 1.75 on my 2017 cat RR and it was by far the best thing I ever did. Hooks perfect on trails and I was able to have some fun off trail to a point. Top speed might suffer a couple mph. Instead of 100 it went 95.... lol I could give a crap about that 5 mph every time I hit it coming out of a corner!

Considering 1.35 gearing is pretty high anyway, yeah you’ll wanna gear down if you add traction

1.35 is fine but it doesn’t have the traction in lots of loose snow that a crossover track has
