i don't think the front is the problem, the rear skid appears to be mounted too low at the rear of the tunnel. set the rear mounting hole higher in the tunnel, as high as it will go and still have a bit more clearance between the lugs and the tunnel at the back then the clearance at the front. you may have to go to 8 tooth drivers up front in order to have proper geometry with the paddle size you have, looks like at least 1 1/2 inches. loosen the front and rear straps all the way and with the machine off the ground position the front mounting holes such that the bottom of the ski and the bottom of the track are in the same line.snobilly said:any suggestions on what shock and springs to use on the front suppension to level it out a little bit for better deep snow and downhilling. mine seams to nose dive in deep powder or if I'm landing going down hill. here is also a pic of my sled see how it dives to the front.
i got a 92 indy 440 mod an it has a xtra 10 suspension only way to goRanger said:Hi, I'm new here and to snowmobiles too. I bought a 95 XCR 600 last year and the skid fell apart on me so I decided to do the extra 10 swap. I not to sure what the skid is out of but the guy i got it from said 97 ultra. I installed the skid today and it seems my track is really tight, the rear wheels are all the way forward the the track is hitting the rear of the skid. I have 3 holes drilled for the front one above eachother so we moved it to the very top hole. We got alittle more play with the track, enough to get it away from the rear of the skid but the it still seems really tight to me. What we did on the rear mount was just moved it ahead to the other holes and drilled the others puttin us just shy of 23 inches. Should I ride it like this or is something really wrong? I wish I woulda found this site sooner.
