track questions

Recommended Posts

For fishing I've got an 02 panther 570 fan that has a 3/4" track on it, would it be possible and worth it (if I can find used) to put a 1-1/4" - 1-1/2" on for better bite? any clearance issues?

I know studs are an option, but I'm often spinning in deeper snow pulling the otter, not much problem on hard pack, if its ice then Ill use the atv.

minneman, any Buffalo Bay trips planned yet? It was an AWESOME summer for Walleye this year, can't wait to get back up there and chase them down......

Is that Panther a single seater or 2 up? Not that it's going to matter much except the track length but you shouldn't have any trouble throwing a 1.25" track under that chassis, I did it with my ZL500 ( same chassis ) that I owned back in the day, actually it was a Polaris track I used but either way, it worked great.

Seems to me a few guys did put 1.5" tracks on their ZL600's too which I would think would work for you.

Your probably looking in the $300 range for a decent track, while your in there make sure you replace those 2 bearings on the track drive, you can get them at the Cat dealer OR they are just a simple 1" flange bearing any implement dealer or auto store would have.

That's a good sled you have there, one day I'll own one and use it strictly for fishing, I've got ideas!

Thanks Mike, yes its a 136" 2up, I saw one on C list a while back and it got me thinking about this. Know of any laying around let me know!

Good point on the bearings.

As of now, end of Feb and mid March trips are planned. Perhaps this year we'll run into each other!

I don't know if anything off the top of my head, there is a local guy that has built up a pretty big collection of late model junker sleds over the past few years here, he works for Lucken Motorsports here in Winger, his name is Tom, I would venture to say he would probably have one. Otherwise I would say RV Sports has them, I just don't know how much $$$, C list is a good resource too, just make sure it's the right pitch, most will fit if they come from a Cat or Polaris, I just don't know about the other manufactures.
