Unfortunately, I only have 1 sled and quite often I’ll go out with the girlfriend on the back of mine. I weigh 150 lbs (6’4” and skinny as a twig ) and my girlfriend is 90-95 lbs.
Ideally I would like to get another sled to eliminate the double riding but unitl then how would I adjust the spring tension. I know about the little triangle piece that allows the 3 different spring settings. (Don’t know the name of that piece) Should I crank that piece to the max spring tension? If I do that the spring will wear out a lot quicker wouldn’t it?
Location: L7 C2 oakland twp 44 King St N RR 4 Scotland N0E 1R0, southwest of brantford, southern ontario
Mileage: 2487 miles
Primary Sled: 2007 blizzard 600
Where I sled: southern ontario and wisconsin.
you won't wear the springs out. looks like you and your little darling there weigh as much combined as i do myself. i'd say just crank the spring up one from where it is now to accommodate two.
IF WE GIVE ALL THE PROFIT TO THE IMPORTS WHAT WILL BE LEFT?
Paul is right ! I have my springs cranked because I'am a lucky 235lbs of solid rock beer gut.So you 2 should be all set. And no I do not know the name of that triangle either maybe TRI SUSPENTION SETTING sounded good!!!!!!!!!!!
I can go home from work here and tell my girlfriend I learned something at work, the suspension thing is called a "Block Spring Adjuster."
I had my shocks rebuilt at the beginning of last season. Earlier I asked if the springs would wear faster with 2 people riding. I guess what I meant to say is, would I need to have the shock rebuilt more often with 2 riders vs. 1 rider.
