How many studs for a 120 track
The two main deciders of quantity when studding a track are engine power and track length. In many cases a shorter track can have more studs than a longer track. This is due to the spacing between lugs, referred to as the drive pitch. The pitch comes in 2.52, 2.86 and 3.00.
The 120 is a 2.86 pitch track and has 42 windows. It’s a popular track equipped on XP and XS Ski-Doo MXZ models and was also found on the Polaris Rush for many years.
2 studs per window pattern comes out to 84 Studs.
3 studs per window pattern comes out to 126 Studs.
4 studs per window pattern comes out to 168 Studs.
The 2 per pattern is ideal for 600 and smaller engines. It is also the recommendation from Ski-Doo for all sized engines but may leave some aggressive riders wanting more traction.
The 3 per row pattern is common on the 600, 800 and 850. It offers great traction for those wanting to ride more aggressive.
4 studs per window pattern should only be run on high horsepower machines equipped with a 2-ply track. To find out if you have a 2-ply or a 1-ply track, enter you Snowmobile information below.
