    Camso tracks

    Picked up the older camoplast tracks (2014) for the can am defender the other day. Anyone here installed these?
    Just wondering if it's a pita mounting them up for the first time?

    I've installed a few sets of tracks, but mainly on atvs. Its not a hard job, but it takes roughly 2 hours to put a set on. Remove the wheels, take off the a-arm guards and install the anti-rotation brackets. Mount the tracks and hook up the anti-rotation linkage.

    There are two things i'd suggest to do before mounting the tracks though.
    1. Inspect your wheel bearings, ball joints, and brakes prior to install. Tracks aren't any harder on the machine than tires, but they will eat worn parts such as wheel bearings quickly. If they have any play at all, change them.
    2. On the track system, check the condition of the main hub bearings and the large idler bearings. The large idlers must be kept in good condition as worn bearings will cause derailment. Its much easier to work on the tracks on a bench than on the machine.

    Tracks require regular maintenance to the track system and the machine. It isn't excessive, just needs to be done. Either do it in the shop or suffer the consequences on the trail. I've done both and its much easier to deal with in the shop.

    Installation is pretty straight forward. Takes me under an hour on my RZR.
