I believe it is time to take the sled off the snow and start prepping for next season. My question is what choices do i have for front shock/ spring upgrades? I got this sled in Febuary and have rode it about 10 times in various conditions of snow and trails. I have problem with left side feeling like it is going to tip me over, i know sounds stupid but it seems like the left side is heavier than the right and have to stand on both feet on right rail or knee on seat and foot on right rail to feel level. It has the sway bar, but no endlinks, so sway bar isn't hooked up. I have looked on sites that sell new springs, but they have a black and a red, but mine are yellow. i also have the pilot 6.9 skis and they feel hard to turn, compared to the snowmobiles i have ridden during this time and thinking about changing also. what do you guys and gals think?
Do i buy links to hook sway bar back up? different spring rate? Maybe a aftermarket shock/spring combo?
Do i stick with the pilot's and maybe a different carbide?
Being honest, my level is novice rider, I wish i could say I am a deep powder rider and mountain climber, but can't. I got the sled with the thoughts of eventually getting there, but has been more fun just getting the whole family together and enjoying the winter ( the snow has seduced me). I spend more time with break downs, digging people out (including myself) and trying to figure out who is lost. I am 5' 6" 200 lbs (don't carry it well) and almost 40. Need be to honest, so i can get honest answers. LOL
I feel the front springs and steering is where i will start besides maybe a diet over the summer, so that is where i will start with my questions, thanks
