Let me start by saying I ride my 1997 Ski-Doo GrandTouring SE (Triple, Triple 700 for those of you not up to date on your 2up's) hard. 99% of the time I am riding single. I do not want to buy a new sled but, I want better handling. I only thing I have installed is a set of USI Ski's. I have read about installing larger stablizer bars, but I am having trouble finding any more info on this topic. Also I am considering installing a M10(136") with an 1" track. Your help is appreciated.

What kinda riding do you do? The M-10 is a groomed trail and ditch suspention. It does perform quite well. If you are riding hard cross country I wouldn't recomend it. Better handling? Hmm, what is the ski stance on that machine? If at all possible, go wider. I would get a 1.25 inch track. Good for all around conditions. Hmm, can't think of anything else off the top of my head.

Shocks, Shocks, Shocks, Shocks...if you ride hard like you say you do and you still are running the original shocks you need to rebuild them or replace them. Believe it or not the shocks are (in my opinion) the biggest and best improvement you can make for handling. If you get stiffer shocks it will ride harsher but it should stick in the turns better. There is always a tradeoff and that is the big one right there. Also if riding single most of the time make sure you have the rear suspension set up for the weight of only one person...remember your sled was designed for 2 people. I'd be willing to bet if you loosened the tension on your springs in the rear you would find some improvement.
