Make sure you get the spacing and the timing marks to specification, otherwise you are going to have issues. Yeah 75 t should get the job done. Double check the installation as noted.

By timing marks, do you mean the little arrows that are on the new wheels should all be pointed to the same flat part of the shaft?

yes, that what he means.

Just check out where they are on the old cogs and then put the new ones on in the same place.

I'm not even sure it matters where they are in relation to the shaft, as long as they are all in the same direction.

Just to add.

Why are you changing the cogs? While your at it, I would buy a new shaft. There known to go south. Mine went two seasons ago and made me miss the best three weeks of the season.
My .02cents.

Good luck.

Well, if you deside to use the shaft over why don't you just move the drive sprockets (which I have done a few times) from one end to the other end. You will have a new set of drive lugs.

First of all, THANK YOU all for your responses! I Would be sooo screwed without this website (or broke i sould say)

Im only changing the cogs because the company i bought the track from said the old ones wouldnt work well with this track i bought (they came with the track at no additional charge too) . Plus my existing cogs are definatly the ones from the factory back in 97, they dont look too good.

It had a factory compolast (however you spell it) and now im running a kimplex. Not sure if that has anything to do with the cogs having to be changed.

Where could i find a new shaft? 97 zrt 800

Thanks again fellas.

Thank you for the part number. Its amazing that these over 1" shafts can break!

I also discovered that my speedo side bearing was 100% junk!

I got the cogs off the shaft today, now just have to put the new ones back on at work tomorrow. thanks again.

I'll have more questions very soon, I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT :)

Sounds like you bought the Shotgun 120 1.25 track that needs diferent sprockets as its a 3 pitch vs the older 2.52

Cat has some newer models that went to the 3pitch as does Skidoo

The track will work with those new sprockets on your sled no problem
