    minimum I would run is a 1.175 and I would lean towards a 1.325.. I would run at least 168 if not 192.. Good luck ! ;)!

    I saw a picture somewhere today that shows the track of the new SRX. It looked like it has the pattern showing, I would just use that. No need to measure or use template, just drill where all the markers are. It showed a combination of singles and doubles.

    Did you notice if there were quiet bumps on the inside? I am guessing none.

    I was hoping none, but the pics that were posted here show quiet bumps and stud markers as well

    Is a silent drive really silent compared to a full clip regular ripsaw2?

    It will be a ripsaw 2 - 1" fully clipped and I'm sure it will have the quiet pads

    As listed the rip II even in 1" version is listed as quiet lug in my catalogs
    Not a heck of a lot of difference in noise from the ones i have seen

    I hope that is a Rip II as the belting is better IMHO than Rip I, and the paddles are stiffer

    Makes the track quieter. Ride a sled without that track and you will see(hear). Might actually even be better for top speeds, who knows. At every row of lugs there is a fiberglass rod in the track, the idler weels make noise when they hit this rod, and it makes a noise/hum. The quiet pads are like little ramps before this rod, so there is less of an impact when the idler wheel goes over it. If a Yamaha dealer doesnt understand something as simple as that, not sure if they should be in the snowmbobile business.

    Every magazine test rider says rip 1. Pic is a rip 1. So i believe its a rip 1.

    I think this is a mistake, not the 1'' track I would prefer. Poor choice from Yamacat.

    Swap to a rip 2 - 1" without the bumps.....
