I am planning on studding my fuse 900 and i was wondering if 192 studs is to many i have bought c&a outlaw skis to make it turn better and was thinking about running a 9 or 10 inch carbide does this sound like a good combo? :russian_roulette:

Put in 192 or don't stud it at all. Way too much horsepower for less than 192.

Definitely 192............make sure you have at least 1/4" penetration (my girlfriend said she requires a min. 6") :banana: .............make your own pattern to get the benefit of the most possible scratch lines...........aftermarket companies patterns overlap way too much............take your time & have fun....... :beerchug:

i think 192 is too many , too much weight......it will rob you of top end speed imo... i guess it depends on how you ride......i used 192 once on a 01 xc 800 and it still spun the track under certain conditions and it was a handfull to steer .......after that i always used 144 with good success........until this year i went with just 120 1.45 woodys mega bites on my fusion 900..... i'm hoping this will work but i can always add 24 more........these 1.45's have more than 3/8ths penetration so that is why i went with 120 instead of 144 also to save weight..... :div20:

how does the rip saw work without studs? i bought a dragon and i planned on 144 studs but after seeing the track i'm thinking about giving it a try without studs. i have always ran studs in the past but thought it might be nice to loose the extra rotation weight not to mention saving some extra cash. just a thought. any comments.

i can't speak for the ripsaw but i had a six-pitch poo sno-pro 1.25"
track on my 01 XC 6. i rode it a year without studs. didn't think it
was too awfull bad. that is, until i spun out going down an icy snow
covered road at 70mph and slammed into a snow bank. went flyin'
off the sled and broke the windshield. not too terribly bad, but i vowed
after than, i will ALWAYS have at least 96-144 studs in EVERY sled i
have to ride from here on out. :div20:

I bought 1.5 inch redtips at hay days this year so my new question is if you use a longer stud do you need as many ?

yes, longer puts more stress on each stud, 144 down the middle

I'm going to use 168 on my sled. I am still up in the air whether to go with 144 in the middle and 24 on the outside or 120 in the middle and 48 on the outside. Any opinions?

I went with 144 down the middle when I first got it, there was so much track flex on ice and real hard pack that it was bending the picks on the outside and the ones dead center looked brand new. Now if your gonna run in powder all day then it won't matter but then you don't need studs.

Sorry to some of you but 192 is too many. Also 1/4" penetration is too short. Aside from more weight and rotating mass, they don't hook up near as good with 192 as it would with 96-120. Ever see the guy that lays on a bed of nails? There's so many that none of the penetrate. Same with studs, too many and weight is distributed to the point were they don't penetrate. What's the pont of spending the extra $$ on studs and putting more weight in your track if it does you no good? And don't say that less will cause pullouts... that is only true if it isn't studded right. Not enough penetraion will cause the lugs of the track to bottom out on the ice after the first swipe of the track as it spins on the ice. Again, not worth the $$ and time in studding. If your going to do it, get at least 3/8" min. penetration... I usually run 1/2"-5/8" penetration.

Studs save lives. You may save a few pounds, few miles per hour, but is that more important than your life? Icy trails, Icy roads, Icy lakes, Hard pack amything...These all require studs, some of them will spin you around like there is no traction. A Ripsaw without studs is fine, as long as you are ALWAYS on non slippery surfaces, meaning loose hard pack, or powder...

Also, you will never win a drag race, and you will always have to explain it is unfair because you do not have studs...

Stud your track!
