The stock track that came on my z440 LX has .75" lugs and they are super thin. I can't seem to get enough traction even on packed trails.

I figure putting on a good 1" will definitly give me more traction BUT, I am just wondering if I will have any problems having a 1"on there? Considering it will probably be a little heavier than the one is on there now. Will I be losing power if I do that? Any thoughts?? suggestions? thanx :)

no you won't have any problems cause i no ppl that have put on 1.25 in tracks and had no problems but with a 1in track if you stud it you might wamt to check the cearance cause i dont no if it willl or not but if a 1.25 fits then a !in track with studs should. you will lose very very little or no power and i would say go for the 1inch track cause traction is everything

In icy conditons, I grip pretty well. i would like to get more traction in loose/powdery conditions. I'm not saying I would like to be able to go through 3 foot drifts but, at least through 4 inches +...

A friend on mine suggested some tunnel protectors would be a good idea if i was going for a 1" track AND also a good set on shocks. Any suggestions on good center and rear shock?!

thanks!
