First off....hit that Cap lock key buddy!


Second, when you say it doesn't handle as well, what exactly do you mean. What might be good handling to one person might be terrible for another.

I take it you mean that it is pushing through the turns.
Is the track studded?
Does the 99 have longer carbides?
Stiffen up the front springs, if the shocks are adjustable turn the dampening scew in a little.
This should help.

The 99 and 2001 Polaris XC 600 have 144 studs and 6inch carbide it is the 2001 doesnt have as much ski pressure as the 99 has and it goes around corners like on rails have tried limit strap on 2001 to second whole but still doesnt make the corners like the 99 did. Has any one tried anything that I havent done. i like the 2001 rear skid better than the 99 but it is the front that missing ski pressure.

may be ski pressure. Sounds odd to me. I know all the Edge riders I know have never mentioned this. But I know they tweaked their tension.

U gotta play with it a bit.

The Edge chassis is longer than the Gen II chassis so that will make it steer a bit harder.

although i haven't ridden an edge chassis model, from the individual reports in snowtech magazine and others, the gen II is supposed to be the handler in the twisties, but the edge takes to the rough much better- just what i've read

Yeah, the Gen ll will usually corner better and it does go faster. Where the EDGE shines is it's ability to handle the bumps and big jumps. However, having all that travel slows it down a bit and it has a hight center of gravity so it is a little less stable. Riders get used to it fairly quick though.
