Personally I would be looking for a pipe you can find them used at a lot of salvage yards and with swap meets "hopefully" coming back this fall then you can find on there. Also check facebook, craiglists, ebay and so on. There is a lot of people out there parting out old snowmobiles.
That was the plan, I found one one ebay however I dont want to pay a hundred bucks plus shipping for it. I'm not sure what other machines share the same pipe or one that will work which makes searching difficult.

I have some parts coming so for this weekend I will leave the sled to the side. I found an exhaust but I am going to fix this one and keep it as a spare since I have another machine that uses the same one. Next week I plan to get everything back in place under the hood and then find a track as this one is shot

Ugh I am still waiting on parts to show up, getting antsy to make some progress!

Can I run a 1.25 inch lug without clearance issues? It looks like it will work but be close.

Might be close KC will know more. I wouldn't try to do it with studs if there is a center cooler or anything. Biggest I go on my Polaris snowmobiles with the Xtra-10 is 1.06 from Ice Attack or a .91" or 1" with studs and the 1" with studs is close so I went to the .91" with 1" studs. Personally I would go look at the 1.06" Ice Attack it is a well 1.06" track with 240 built in studs and they are nice, they hook up and put down traction. Just make sure you put at least 6" carbides on it. I have 8" carbides on mine but I also paid the same price for those as I would for the 6" so eh why not get the upgrade for the same price.

I have an 1.25 with Double tap studs in my ZR1035
But on that 580 a 1" track will be night and day above the stocker.

Out of curiosity, are these sleds of this vintage all pretty much the same? I have a 94 here with the same motor in it and everything looks identical although the wire colors are different. So could theoretically if I were troubleshooting could I swap the cdi or ecu? Or if one went bad, steal parts off the other?

There was no reason to reinvent the wheel.
Most parts are indeed interchangeable, even between brands!
Remember Cat did NOT make any of the parts on the sled, just assembled them!
