    Yes they work great. I think I will pull the ski tip up a position the next time out to see the results. But they worked great in all conditions on and off the hard pack.

    Just want to make sure. You mean 1.25" of threads showing?

    No! Back off spring to 0 spring compression then compress spring 1.25 from that point. This will have quite a bit of spring tension but will make the front end feel lite and be great for transfer and big bumps.

    Don it sounds like you are really impressed with the SW. So far I'm loving the one you sold me. I'm very pleased and a bit surprised at how well it rides and handles and the power is unreal. I only have a couple hundred miles on but so far I'm impressed. Wait till Dan hears what you think of it. He will be down from Muskoka with his trailer. Oh BTW is that my sled in the back ground in your avatar?

    Your sled looks great. Is that a Ridelite or auxiliary LEDs upfront by the reflector?

    Can you explain the front skid shock setting again or differently. Are you saying you suspend skid, loosen spring until loose, then crank tight by 1 1/4"? My sled steers very light but want more transfer.
    Thanks

    Thanks I think I'm gonna swap if I find a takeoff for less than $600 new price I loved mine on my nytro does you sled transfer and launch from a stop on trail because mine won't just spins for days even easy on the throttle.

    FWIW, I ran the C and A RZ on my XTX this weekend, and I can't wait to get them off. It was incredibly hard to turn the handlebars in everything except powder conditions, and I'm not a small guy. I tried backing off the ski pressure by reducing pressure in the front shocks, and adding pressure in the middle shock. I think its the full length square keel combined wiwth the extra engine weight of the 4 stroke over the skis that makes this particular ski hard to turn. Some of the other models look like they reduce or taper the keep towards the front of the ski.

    Thanks!
    Do you feel any heavy steering or darting on trails?

    It transfers & launches unlike any sled I've ever ridden! It hooks up so good most of the time, that it's hard to hang on! You won't be disappointed. Lol
