77 lynx

I picked up a 77 arctic cat lynx 2000t that had been sitting for over 15years. Well it started and idled 3rd pull with some help and it runs damn good. But the strip of track on the right side is riped apart, I drilled some holes and zip tied the track back together. I drove around for over 4 hours like this and the engine is running real good so i want to buy a track for it, used or new. The problem: I think this track size must be really rare and nobody makes them. I went out and measured it and this is what I got-> Pitch:2.52"
width:15"
Center distance:7.5"
Qty:44
So this makes the track 110.88" long. I have been searching everywhere and can find nothing.

Did I measure it wrong or is the lynx an odd ball?

The Lyxx is a smaller sled like the Enticer were, it's possible to get a skid fron a 90 Cat? and put it in with a std 121! this would give it a better ride, but might be heavy? You can get those skids fairly cheap because everyone wants to upgrade to the 97 and newer set ups! The 15X121 is the std track and again you could find a good used 5/8" that some one upgraded to an 1"?

The only thing is to be sure to get the measurements from the drive shaft back to the mount holes!

It's not a 121", its a cleated track 110".

Kccats indicated you may want to change the suspension to a 90s version which uses a 121" track. fairly easy conversion and better ride. Plus the 121" track is widely available.

Shouldn't be hard to find, they made a bucketload of Lynxs. Put a note on the NHSMA site.
I suspect that the belting is available, you might want to try for that and repair your track.
