2014 eltigre trihub replacement

I'm sure this has been covered a million times, but I need to replace my trihub. It hasn't failed but I removed it and it is VERY ROUGH and dry. Sled has 2,400 miles on it. Anyway, I was thinking I'd replace it with the Speedwerx 7.12" 4 wheel set. Anyone using this setup???

Not familiar with the Speedwerx one. I would recommend the J&T or Larson racing...I have the J&T and it is a very well built product and a good price.

I would get the Larson one. It uses the same size wheels as stock and IMO is a better piece then Speedwerx. J&T uses slightly larger wheels, in which will cause you to lose some traction.

This is not true, I have the JT stealth wheels, they are only as large enough to be exactly the same level as the bottom of the Hyfax, stock wheels are wrong they are above the Hyfax. And there is no "loss of traction" thats bogus.

The thing with JT's is they use very good and larger bearings

JT's on the left, stock tri-hub on the right, see the difference?

Owning a Thundercat is like having a totally hot wife..... All of your friends want to see it, feel it and check it out..... They all want to know what it is like to ride it, but if they only knew how much time and money it takes to keep one up, they would call you a fool!

4 wheel kit

I recently had the bad luck of trihub to break. The rail got caught in the track. Bent the rail and tore the track. I had to change both. I put in a 4 wheel kit.

Was wondering if there is a cap that i can put on the end of the rail that stops it from getting caught in the track.

not that I'm aware of, there are anti-stab wheels you can get for the front

I went with the J&T Stealth Big Wheel Kit 7.5 wheels. A little disappointed that the axle was not black as noted in the description. Easy installation and I'm looking forward to testing them out.

That is correct for the J&T Stealt Big Wheel Kit.
Standard J&T TriHub replacement is the same size as stock. Standard outside wheel kits can be added, to the J&T TriHub replacement, for even better durability, stability, and snow dust retention for better lubrication & cooling.

............I'll be back in a bit..................

I installed the stealth big wheel kit the the rear wheels hung below the hyfax at the same level as the rest of the idlers which is about even with the bottom of the hyfax. When placed on the floor the bottom of the skid was level across the length with the hyfax just touching the floor. The stock rear trihub was just above the bottom of the hyfax. I will be purchasing the same kit for my 2018 zr8000 as the kit in my 2015 has been flawless for 4 years now.

Now really? You can hardly even see it
