Hi,

I have a 1994 EXT 580 Carb. with aftermarket Camoplast plastic ski's on it.
I have 4 inch carbides (no studs) and a one inch lug track.  Anyways it
seems to push a lot through the corners, what do you recommend me doing?
Longer carbides or what? (front suspension is pretty tight right know along
with the back)

I do almost all trail riding or putsing around the yard!

Any suggestions would help!!

Thanks in Advance,
Joe, WI

Can try tightening up the front limiter straps on the rear suspension. This
will give you more ski pressure and a bit less on the holeshot

You can increase ski pressure by increasing the preload on the front springs
(tightening the spring tension on the front shocks) but the best way is to
adjust the limiting straps on the front of the rear suspension skid frame.
Look under the front of the skidframe and you'll see 2 fabric straps hooked
around a bar at the lower end, and attached to a long threaded eyelet at the
other. There is a nut on the end of the eyelets. By tightening up on the
nut, you raise the front of the skidframe and put more down pressure on the
skis. My loosening the nut, you lower the skidframe and decrease ski
pressure. Adjust both straps evenly and only adjust them a little at a time,
then try the sled between adjustments. If you put too much pressure on the
skis, your sled will get hard to steer, and your arms will get very tired
trying to. You just have to go by feel until you get it steering how you
like.
