No offense, Folgers, but why are you trying to run a drag race clutching setup on your trail sled. If it were me, I'd bring the engagement speed down into the mid 4000's and get rid of the problem at it's roots.

You need to see what mods were done.  Different gearing? Pipes? and most important clutching.  See what clutch springs are in it.   You will need the proper tools to do this though.

i like the way it is just would like to know how much lead i need in the front end to keep it down? a friend got on it and said WOW thats snapppy. and he rides a 2001 mach z. what should i do to the front straps?  i think they are pulling the front down putting a lot of track on the ground. do i want more track or less track?  
id like to see if i can how long i can pull his mach Z?

you need to change your clutch ingagement rate....set it at 4000 or so. check your owners manuel it will tell you how.

Definitaely change the engagement on ur clutch thats the main source of the problem. You'll see little numbers going around nuts on the outside part of the primary clutch. Make sure you adjust each of them the same. Each number represents around 200rpm I think. After that to keep the nose down some you will want to ensure your limiter straps are snug, but not tight, too tight will cause pivoting. Then also you can tighten your ACM nut a little more. You'll find that guy...my best description would be in line and below the rear spring tension adjustment nut....your looking for a silver rod with a half circle on the top part and a nut and threads on the bottom, tighten that up to help keep your skis down in the future.....I like taking it off some times for kicks and pulling the skis way up!!!

The numbers on your primary clutch is for WOT rpm. Check your rear coupler blocks. If the thinner portion is facing rearward, then adjust it to the thicker portion is facing rearward & try that
