My dad has a 700 Mountain Max and we got a problem of when in powder he gets a whole lot of it all over the front and even more goes over the windshield. I mean, this isn't anything THAT deep either. I don't know much about the Mountain Max but it seems really front end heavy to me, plus it doesn't have very wide skis which is the problem I'm sure. We were thinking of maybe swapping the skis for some wider skis from a powder special or something. I know that would help, but would it make a BIG difference or just slightly? Thanks everyone......

agree with the wider skis and have you checked the limiter straps. Yammis are pretty tight by stock may have lots of ski pressure makin her dive.

Venom, I would agree with Sled_Dog. My 99 MM700 has the straps pretty loose for the powder riding I do most. I have a hard time keeping the skis on the ground on flat trails but I also don't have a problem with snow coming over the hood under normal riding conditions.

Although I have buried her quite a few times!!

Loose straps = less ski pressure
Tighten straps = more ski pressure.

Or did you mean 'how to' adjust them? Just nuts and bolts through different eyes in the strap.

Ah ok. Should be below in the skid near the front. Usually side by side. Some older sleds only have one strap though. I would think yours would have two.

I'm not sure if AC does something different with their suspension in 99. Maybe someone else can confirm. They are pretty obvious if they are there though.
