    Bought a 2016 left over 1.25 lug XTX with Upgraded shock...going to pick it up Tuesday.. after owning 3 Attaks..19000 miles total logged.. Wife has had a 2010 Vector LTX since new ..logged 10000 traded in on a 2013 Vector LTX with 900 miles. Couldn't resist the EPS ..fuel efficiency of the 3 cyl and 146 track..
    Any thoughts on studding and if I need cooler protection etc. I can't seem to find much on this machine being the only made it for 2 years.. The Apex XTX 2016 2017 must be the same... Woodys said to use 3.125 Gold Diggers.. and 102 of them...Which should be enough for my riding.

    Post up some photos when you pick it up Capt. Turns out the Vector at Billerica is an LTX.

    No such thing as a 2018 Vector LTX that I know of.. Just a Vector.. with 129 in track .. and I never found a listing for one on Yamahas site for the 1.75 lug track which it has..

    Those sales guys at Billerica are totally clueless I guess. It's what they keep telling me they have.

    I was surprised to see it's so different and aggreessive then the Ripsaw I used on LTX's. I can't find one at the Camoplast site like it.. the one on the XTX that is. I ride mostly groomed trails so I hope this holds up and performs well.
