Got to ride in a Honda 1000 on tracks this week. It definitely has quite a bit more power than my Viking 700's to power those tracks. It runs about 30mph pretty comfortably with plenty of snort if you get into the throttle. They hunted hard all week in 2 to 4 feet of snow, running it hour after hour each day, they did back up into a deep ditch and broke one of the support bolts but it got back to the truck fine and they didn't realize it was broke until the next day, when that one track looked a little out of alignment. They figure they have about 5k miles on that set of tracks, the machine itself has over 10k miles and runs like a champ. He has another machine a couple years older with over 20k and still running strong. I think a Pioneer 1000 will be my next UTV purchase.

Thanks for that review Dale.  Do you know what brand of tracks he had on his Honda?  I love my pioneer....and am in the market for tracks.  It would be a great addition to the property winter travel.

The Camso 4s, it's the same ones I have, they work well and when you wear out all the bearings you can get replacements in the Spokane Valley.

Have had a new set on order for 6 weeks from
https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems
Should be here next week. In the mean time took the ECU box off and sent it to Gilomenís to get it flashed. Went with a torque monster clutch kit and heavy duty secondary spring. Running a 1000cc Polaris ranger.

Tracks arrived on Tuesday  so Pinetar and myself made a flying trip to Spokane on Wednesday to pick them up. So on Thursday
After a couple Coors light and throwing away the instruction. I went straight to YouTube And was able to figure out how to mount and adjust them for proper track angle. Havenít had a change to run them anywhere beside the field for break in but all I can say is wow. Iím running a stock Polaris ranger and with the track I have 18 inches of clearance.

Looks good  :tup:

I got my tracks on my SxS as well. Ran them all over in the pastures today and it goes great. Not as fast as my four wheelers but a lot warmer and dryer. The old Lab likes it a lot more laying on the front seat instead of the back seat of the four wheeler getting snow thrown in her face :chuckle:

Now time to take it to the hills and try it out in the deep stuff!!

I have wanted tracks for the RZR for a couple years, but as a westsider, I'm afraid they would only get used a couple times a year.

Thanks for the insight from the guys who have them!

:yeah: My Can-Am luckily has an override so you donít burn the belt up. If youíre in the high and like you said get into deep snow or steep inclines it will bog down and tell you to shift to low before you start breaking stuff.
Hopefully the belt chang goes smoothly and you can get them back on the trail

I would suggest a tarp big enough to completely cover your machine for shelter if happen to be stuck out over night as tarp will keep the temp under it bearable/and help survive.
