First off, thanks for reading.
I'm here because from the best I can figure my 2019 Grand Touring Limited ETEC 600R 137 is essentially a Renegade underneath. Most likely an Enduro??
I bought the 2 up after being out of sledding due to location for about 40 years. I figured it would be a good way to get my wife and I out of the house in the winter. And I've always loved it as a kid. But it turns out instead of both of us being retired, she started working to prevent boredom and I do most of my riding alone. But I did get out almost every single day the trails were usable, which wasn't a lot this year.
I'd like to be able to able to swap out some parts for a single rider configuration but still be able to switch back fairly easily. Back rests and trunk boxes are easy enough. But even with all of the two up stuff removed I find the seat big and clunky for moving around. Heating isn't that important when I'm alone. I'm guessing the seats are generally interchangeable within the chassis version. 2017-2020? Are there model limitations? Is there a recommended seat for me to look for?
Since I'm at it. One more question. The suspension on my GT-L really seems to be heavily biased towards two up weights. I'm 6' 1'', 225 before all of my gear. And riding solo I always end up with minimum shock preloads and air ride rear shock of 1. My wife is about half my weight and we normally end up on one setting stiffer all around. Actually, as a single rider I'd like the settings to be a bit softer than I can get with the current, stock configuration. In fact, alone I cannot get the rear of the sled down to the recommended height. Is this similar on the rest of the Renegade line? Or is it just me?
Short of custom springs/shocks ($$$) are there Ski-doo OEM springs I can get to bias these settings a bit softer? The higher end of the settings are essentially like rocks and I suspect I'll never use them.
Overall, it seems as if Ski-Doo never considered that somebody might want to ride alone at times!
Thank you again and looking forward to hearing some of your opinions.
