I have been wondering how to set my suspension up. I have a 05 800 Summit and have not changed anything on the suspension. It is still set up how the dealer set it up. The sled handles so good compared to my Polaris that I haven't wanted to mess with it. Now that I have 300 miles on it I was thinking it is time to dial in the suspension. I was thinking it would be good to hear how others have there sleds set up. Hear is the vital info.

Type of sled 05 800 Summit 151"
Type of riding Deep snow Hill climbs
Weight of rider 200 lbs
Height 6-1

Ski shocks middle adjustment
Front Track shock middle adjustment
Limiter straps 5 turns tighter than the dealer had it
Rear springs middle setting
Track 2 inches of slop when you lift the back of the sled
Sway bar still in

Am I missing any thing?

Also we are coming to Priest Lake Idaho March 8th. This is my first trip to Idaho. Any tips on were to go for the big hills. Thanks

I set mine up with the suspension strap cranked all the way tight for spring riding. Sled handles great on the trails and the front is more than light enough to hill climb with. All springs on board are set to moderate settings.
