Wifes sled. Just installed 7 inch C&A's with 6" carbides. Went out today and the trails were frsh groomed and hard as a rock. She could barely turn it with the new skis. I traded sleds and sure enuff it was hard as hell to turn. I know these arent the best conditions for easy steering but it was a bear. Limiter strap is factory and loose. Rear springs are on the stiffest setting, front track shock is in the middle. Ski shocks are on 1(softest)My wife rides several thousand miles a year on my bumper. Short of loosening the limiter another hole what should I do to make it easier to steer? As the day went on she got a little more accustomed to the skis and was able to turn better. She says she feels as if she is going to love the skis if I can make it turn a little easier.

I am going to wait until next weekend to make any changes in hopes it wont be 22 below zero and the trails will be a little softer.

TIA

Well,it sounds like you have everything set that I was going to suggest.
I recently put flex skis on my rev...I put 10" bottomline's on it...boy what a mistake!!! waaay too aggressive,(i'm even running 144 studs...still too much) I put my center shock up to the middle setting,(helped a little) I set my front shocks on 2(helped some more)...I tried letting my straps out one hole...but that only affected the way it steered upon acceleration....on decel,it was still hard.
I put easy steers (pcs strips) on ..helped alot!......but I think a less aggresive carbide will be MY answer.

As for YOUR answer...well the only other thing I can think of is your rear springs,maybe soften them a little....I run mine on 3,and I'm 235lbs....never bottom out....so I thik you'll be safe there.

Other than that,

You might just have too much weight on the front. Tighten up the front spring on the rear skid which will take weight off of the skis.
