My mxz turns in tight twisty trails great but you get up to 65 70+mph its darty even on fresh trails with no grooves. The carbides on my factory skis are good and only 96 studs. .Nothing else broken or loose.I have the front shock on third click and adj ski preload makes no difference.Do I need more carbide?

Check your ski allignment, you want slight toe out. Do a search on how to doo it.

Ski style would help. If you have single runners, then try a product called "easy steers" or something like that. Do a search on that as well. I use them on my 01 and they work great. Cheaper than new skis, ALOT.

Precision skis on a Zx are awesome if you set your sled up right. The only time they suck is if you're following someone else who has them too. When that is the case, I just ride staggered behind them.

I prefer the flex over precisions.... Try lighening the preload on the skis and loosen the limiter strap 1 setting. Tell us how it goes...

I did that up or down on the ski made no difference.I tightened the limiter stap to.I think different skis seems to be the way to go. thanks for the help.I see I posted the same question twice

YOU said you tightened the straps - loosen them. You want to get the weight OFF the front end so you need to adjust so the track carries more. Does that make sense?

TRY this , lift the front of the sled off the ground w/ a floor jack under the bulkhead. As your lifting pay attention to your skis , are they coming off the ground backs first? If so check your rubbers under the spindle. You want the front to lift first, this will tell you theres to much pressure in the front of the wearbar area and it will dig causing darting.

My old zx did this and found the rubbers to be in backwards. You can also shim the back of the rubber to achive the balance of your skis .
