I just saw those today. Good price, not sure of the quality. Looks like he put the front tracks on backwards, a buddy looked them up on their site, they're the other way around on there. Could you imagine the human carnage if your foot slipped off the Honda footpeg and got sucked up the track while cruising down the trail!

It would hurt for a second...what I was noticing is that they don't have the angle in the front of the track like the new ones...probably wouldn't ride as smooth

The dirtbike kits are pretty cool, looks like a fricken peice of art. I got two budds , one on a ktm505, the other a 525. They have great traction, ride, cornering is great, but track terrible on non vergin snow,specially in the hard pack. They have their drawbacks, enough to kinda make them a novelty.

Good to go !!

Well after some slight mods to the brackets due to my previous lift , the tracks are working. Took it for a 1 hour test ride tonight then reset everything, top speed is down but no lack of power. The bitch does require some aggressive steering input( muscle)but i can live with it.Sat is long ride day, gonna wring it out good. Pics to come.

I could imagine without PS it would be tough until your moving pretty good. The Grizzly I tried was awesome, as long as the track is moving even a bit, the PS was almost effortless. Wonder how hard it'll be on the PS motor though.

It was an insane day of riding. Flying over 4 feet of snow and cruising around through the trees was nuts !Just at dark i burned across a huge clear-cut to hook on to a trail , no tracks but mine, and then it happened. I started on the trail and hooked a tree with a back track and started sinking on that corner, STUCK !!!! I then realized that the track was almost off because one of the end track rollers was gone.I found it in a tree well at the trail head. 3 hours later after digging a big hole under the track and putting the roller back on backwards because a bearing retainer clip was gone, i was rolling towards home another hour away.Those are the highs and lows of playing hard. Remember to always pack tools and survival gear, i do.

I'm looking hard for them but still can't see your pics.

So did the wheel (bogie?) come off because it wasn't installed right from the factory or abuse on your part? Curious because I've never heard of them coming off except when the bearing is toast. I do know that the tracks stretch quite a bit the first time out. Did the adjustment on my buddies Grizz and they were really loose from the initial ride.

The bearing is perfect and you can see where the clip came out of the wheel by some gouges in the plastic.I think its from smoking the tree. I did readjust everything after around an hour of riding and kept checking it all.I`m lucky the wheel could be put on backwards , there is a lip on the other side of the bearing that way.I checked the rest today and their all good.As for pics, i have some on a disposable waiting to develop,the guy i was riding with took some but hasnt e-mailed them yet.Sorry. I think i might order an end wheel to pack just in case, if it was just one of the small bogies i could keep going and i`m glad i found the lost one.

So get a small tabogan and bolt it to your rack so you skid on home next time you nail something hard.
