I went with a single deep keel ski on my 18 with aggressive snowtrackers. Just like power steering once set up. The Yammi mountain Ski I used, is similar to the new Yami ski, but wider. I've had good results with similar set ups over the past 11 years with the snowtrackers, on 4 different Yamaha's.
Good to know. I removed my citclip as well and ran it that way last season. Did not have any issues but wasn't comfortable with that, so I had the secondary cut and put the clip back on for the proper offset.
That's very interesting on the lower mount for the arcs. I ride the mountains couple times a year where my son lives and see quite a few skids lowered on the rear skid mount bracket. I've been told by a few who have built custom machines, a lowered skid rear point helps move out the snow better.
What kind of shim you use?
I was actually thinking about posting about this topic. There are shims available. Don't know how effective they are and how many have tried them though. Might take a crack at this later this summer when I get to it.
I've dialed then in this season and love them. They give the Winder much needed flotation, have a good deep keel. They hold the line real well in the big sweepers while trail riding. I use the aggressive snowtrackers on mine and very happy with them.
