you obviously have a suspention problem if your having trouble cornering an edge. check your front suspention for broken/missing swaybar blown shocks things along those lines. the only thing ive ridden that corners better than my edge in my buddys 95 xcr 600

Try Softening the preload on the front shocks. You may be getting too much bite. Don't know if thats the answer, but its a helluva lot better than any of the answers you've gotten so far

if they are set too soft it may seem tippy. is the stabilizer bar connected? The edge is one of the most stable sleds ive rode.

should be an adjustable collor on the lower part of shock, and you should be able to see threads . If i remember right you turn the clockwise to stiffen. The stabilizer bars are the bars that go from the behind the ski saddle to up into the belly.

Is your rear suspension set too stiff? If it is, it raises the center of gravity on the sled and will make it tippy.

According to the performance setup manual I've read, you should bottom out the sled twice per ride. If you do more it's too soft, if you do less it's to stiff/
