    Default 2000 Yamaha Mountain max 700 with cracked saw on the track

    A buddy bought 2000 Yamaha Mountain max 700 which was sitting for 7 years.
    Its Yokohama track has crack on the bottom of the saw only at the wheel corner. The other part of track is OK. Will this track break soon or run several years until some of saw gone away?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd think it will last a while yet, I don't know if I would want to run it at top speed though.

    cut off the bad lug. smear a bunch of black E6000 glue. This stuff works great. I have repaired many torn lug tracks with it.Capture.PNG

    Run it.
    By the looks of the track clips, have a set of hyfax on-hand. Old rusty ones will chew up a set in no time.

    Just run it. I've torn many lugs off my MM and I am still riding it. Watch out for your bearings though, due to vibration.

    Stating the obvious is not neccesary!

    Thank you very much to those who have responded. I will try E6000. I will be careful with bearings and rusty clips.

    But, the owner is afraid of trouble on the mountain, so he wanted to change newer 144 track with extensions if cheap 144 track is available.
    I found and got on e-bay very rare Yamaha OEM extensions 141 to 144.
    So we are planning to get 144 track from USA. Shipping cost is not expensive. Listed price of tracks are 2 or 3 times higher than these e-bay ones in Japan.
    The number of Snowmobiles in Japan may be less than 1/100 comparing to USA, it a reaNos Yamaha Snowmobile Susp. Rail Extend KIT 8DP-RALEX-PL-AT 8DP-COLLR-32-10.jpg144tracks.jpgson.

    You should look into the composit brand tracks. They have only been on the market in the US for a few years, got good reviews are 2 ply and are cheaper and have a better warranty than the camso tracks.
