I have a 2016 summit and I've wanted to get that thing to stand straight up, I've loosened the limiter strap one notch and didn't help much what else should I do my clutch clickers are all set at 3. Is it just the snow quality or is there something else I should try doing?

Limiter straps all the way loose. Front shocks soft. Front skid shock as stiff as it will go and rear torsion springs as soft as they will go.

Also make sure your hitting max rpm 7900-8000 at wide open throttle if not clicker up till your there. Stand as far back on the sled as you can if your really light then try standing on the tunnel hit the throttle full and pull back at the same time! I can tail stand my '15 summit 154" easily with stock clutching (I know have a clutch kit though) and the limiter strap in stock setting. I think you need at least 3-4 ft of snow to keep it going though

You riding an XP or XM? What size track? My old XP I couldn't get it to tail stand at all on flat land had to be up a slight slope or hill it was a 154"

I thought pulling the limiter strap tighter helps boon docking and walking the sled?
Also set the rear blocks at 1 setting.

My 154 has a 3 inch and run a 2 1/4 at home. Thing always seems to be able to stand up. Going to try heavier Springs in the rear of the skid to try and keep it down.

Opposite actually, the limiter strap let out will keep the skid down and allow the front end to raise more. tighter strap = more ski pressure. looser = less ski pressure.

To each his own. The last thing I want my mtn sled to do is cat walk. Having the limiter loose makes it trench and wheelie. Not what I'm looking to do. Having the skis 18" off the snow in a technical climb just s8cks.

have my 146 set up for mountain riding to keep it from getting to trenchy, all my shocks are cranked and still is ridiculous, low elevation clutch kit actually helps for wheeling i think it keeps it from revving out too soon. have no trouble putting it right at 12 o'clock still. its almost too much sometimes

I would back off the middle shock and pull the limiter up one hole from stock. That will help. Might need to pull it up 2 holes. Maybe that sled would be a good candidate for the quick adjust option.

Tightening limiter strap will do the opposite of what you want.

I'm on a 163xm not changed anything from stock. Just gas her up a little bump and heave it!

Don't forget about PAH! And if that doesn't work, slap a couple Monster stickers on your sled, those add about 5-8 hp each depending on how loud of a can you have
