i think they should be replaced, if they look like they have worn pretty good you should replace them.

when was the last time they were replaced?

Nick, there is a line on the sides of the hyfax that is the wear line. I would change them as they are cheap and you have the skid out. hyfax is much cheaper than rails.

i would change them forsure your going to all the trouble of changing the track. also you know you will get at least another 5 years out of your sled with all brand new everything.your dooing the right thing. just live by this rule with an older sled,if your in doubt and it dosn't look right change it. just think you have all summer to replace stuff on your sled. but when the snow flies again you will be riden a new citation around with no worries. my wife and kids got me a t shirt and it fits my personality very well it says ( if it ain't broke change stuff till it is) :thumbsup: i'm with ya dude you just keep dooing what you are and that sled will be a great little ride,and best of all its all yours and its bought and paid for. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hey Nick

This is your lucky day.

Timespentsearching's name refers to the fact that he has spent time searching for that one lucky young lad that needed a leg up into our beloved and very expensive past time that we all love so much. You will receive one of his several sleds. He can't ride them all at once and he'd much rather have is Lady friend riding on the back with him. So he's going to ship one of his sleds to you. Just PM him your delivery address and he'll look after you. You will end up riding a Polaris instead of a Skidoo, but at least you'll be a riding a newer sled as he suggested. Aren't you glad you made that post TimeSS? LOL.

On a serious note, I've been reading all of your posts and I think it's great that at your age, that you're so eager to tackle anything when it comes to keeping your ride going. I think your a great example to so many youths of today. Keep it up. YOU ROCK!!!

Good luck.

Jeff
