Good question. My 121" XC's have it in the lower mounting location. I always wondered what the upper location was for.

I'm not sure what the upper hole is specifically for, but I always use that hole to lower my sled when I go out on the ice, racing. It pulls the skid up into the tunnel.

I'm pretty sure it has to do with stiffness and weight transfer of the snowmobile. There is a lot of adjustments you can make in the skid that will really effect the ride/driveabuility of the snowmobile, but for deep snow/off trail you want it all on the high/stiff setting.also changes the attack angel of the track

Upper position is for a stiffer ride (pounding moguls). The upper position also aids in weight transfer (along with setting your rear scissor stop and rear shock settings). The lower position gives a little softer ride. Let your limiter strap out some, for deep snow riding (this affects corner though).

Mounting it up might help deep snow riding a little. Mount it there, and give it a try. If you don't like it, move it back. [:)]
