trouble with wheel in track

I have been having troubles with the Center wheel in the back of the track gettin chewed up and breaking. The last one only lasted around 30 miles. Wonder if anyone has an idea why it would be doing it or if there is a better wheel i can insert. I just been gettin them from the local dealership. Its sure a pain to replace then ride for a couple hours then realize its broke again.

Its a 98 Cougar 550 136inch track

I can think of only a couple of things that might cause your problem. Either that wheel is not located properly by the spacers that need to align it, or there is something seriously wrong with the track. Those wheels should last for thousands of miles with occasional bearing attention as needed. I would check to see that the spacers are all there and in proper order upon reassembly.

The online parts fiche diagrams can be helpful:

Is the track studded? I have seen many wheels go bye-bye due to a bent stud back.
