(y)Waiting patiently for KRX track adaptors to come onto the market. That would get me thinking about some serious HP upgrades. If the Pioneer will go through hood deep snow with tracks the KRX will be even more fun. Of course the snow rule of thumb is "what goes through hood deep snow can just as easily become hopelessly stuck in hood deep snow."

You had any luck finding any track kits for the krx? I’ve looked at camso a bunch of times and they still don’t make a kit for the krx. I dunno if it’s cuz it’s so heavy and the power to weight ratio isn’t that great. But now the supercharger kits are out could be a good time.

I've talked to Mattracks and Camso. In fact I've had several conversations with Mattracks and they claim to be able to track a KRX, for a mere $10k. I spent a lot of phone time asking for specifics on mounting from the sales rep and didn't get the concrete details my OCD brain would require for $10k. Before I'd drop $10k on tracks, I'd go back to a RS1 with camso tracks which was my plan B to begin with if I didn't go KRX. I had a deal written up and approved for a RS1 nicely set up, in stock, with tracks for substantially less than what I paid for the KRX.

Camso implied "something is in the works stay tuned"....over a year ago. They were supposed to let me know ASAP as I went with a KRX on the assumption that tracks were right around the corner. There was no mention of any weight, or power issues when I talked with their engineer. I imagine they are kind of like the supercharger deal, slow R&D, parts availability etc. I have a set of Camsos on my Pioneer and am pretty happy with them. Camso has powered me through every "oh $hit I'm stuck for sure this time" event with no problems.

I check the Camso website every few weeks and and nothing so far. :(

Well if you have a set for your pioneer all you would need to get is the mounting brackets once they make them right? Instead of buying a whole other track setup would save you some money and could find out how the krx does on tracks for a lot cheaper. I dunno if you can change the tooth count on the sprockets or if the pioneer setup would match the krx tooth count anyway.

By the time you got matching wheel bolt pattern drive sprockets (if they even exist), made some kind of mounts, and took the Honda out of service ( I use it for business servicing remote sites during the winter) the experiential juice wouldn't be worth the squeeze. I've gone as far as jacking up the KRX with the wheels off and kind of dry fitting the tracks to look for obvious clearance problems and that is about it. At least the supercharger guys are getting some satisfaction after the long wait.

I stumbled across this yesterday. Might be the deal for next winter.

The switch back to regular tire time is in a few short weeks. 😕

that kit that is under that pic is 2300 bux and they call it a conversion kit. Or for 650 they have a mounting bracket kit. The conversion kit is for the can am tracks I believe, but the mounting bracket kit does not have a lot of information, I'm assuming that is for like the camso tracks but I don't know if it includes everything you need or not.

It's confusing... me that's for sure. They have an install video out for a Polaris that seems pretty sound.

I'd love the CanAm Apache tracks but think the Camsos are better for dual use. Like I mentioned earlier. Their supposed to get with me today so I'll have more info than.

So I just got an email from camso and they do not make a kit and there is nothing in the works for the krx. They said it did not pass fitment R&D. Asked for a little more information and they said something to do with the suspension travel, emailed them back stating it has the highest travel supsension of almost all utv. They said maybe to much travel, which doesn't make a lot of since to me but I'm far from a mechanic
