    Default Track for Venture

    Just bought an 01 Venture in great shape but it definitely needs a track upgrade. Can anyone tell me which track will work on this sled, max lug height? I'm hoping to find something used, so will a 136" from another brand sled work as well? Thanks

    The max is about 1.5" lug height. That's with no forward heat exchange protectors. I run 1.35 Cobra for the last 4 season on my 700 Venture witch is an excellent on /off trail track .
    My brother ran a 1.25" ripsaw (first Gen) on his 600 venture. Great on trail track not so good off trail but you often find them used and for sale.

    Shouldn't have problems finding a used 136" (2.52 pitch). They are very commun tracks and we're used on many, brands, makes and models.

    Thanks Vincent, that's the exact track I was hoping to be able to use height-wise. Do those come studded or do they need to be picked?

    put a 1-1/4" ripsaw on my dads 05 sx venture. we love it on that sled. as his gets used by guest riders that do not know warning sounds of eaten exchangers, i would only run a ice ripper or pre moulded stud track to prevent the loss of an engine from punctured cooler.

    As long as it is a 2.52 pitch. My sons SX6 has a Cat quiet track.

    136inch polaris tracks with the 2.52 pitch are a consideration..

    Great, thanks for the info guys.... I'm hoping a 1-1/4" with picks will fit... and leaving the front heat exchanger protectors in?

    If you are not out to stomp the competition into oblivion, I strongly advice you not to pick. Get something that has built-ins and never worry about throwing a pick through the heat exchanger ever again. And then consequently burning it to the ground. After all ..... this is 2-up Venture.

    With my sons SX6 , the Cat quiet track was basically a Ripsaw Gen I 1.25". And we still needed to remove the front protectors.

    i do not often drive my dads and unless you are going to drive it personally, i would use an ice attack or put in the i grip studs like mrsled did last season on his apex and sidewinder.
