How long is the run? 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" track is good. set the front shocks soft. Set the front rear a little stiffer than normal and drop the torsion spring blocks down a notch from where you normally ride. Leave the suspension coupled. DON'T sit on the back of the sled. Sit normally until you are on top of the water good, gas it on, then slide forward just enough to let the skiis touch the water lightly. (just for stability) Let us know how long the run was, what you hit for speed, and what you ended up with for set-up.
Already did!! I have some pics to post as soon as I get a minute. We spent about 3 hours on the water last weekend up by Seney. Now I'm looking for likely ponds around here. I think I need an official watercrossing sled...
I knew Idooski would launch on this one. I have ridden with the crazy water loone and let me tell you, we were up in the Iron's Michigan area and he couldn't stop from "testing" the water there. Then in Mancelonia, we wanted to go to the Snocross and see the new Rev's, and on the way we saw some ditch water from the rains that day. I mean some great water skipping areas. Idooski becomes posessed with water! He should change his name to "SEAHUNT". LOL.... Oh by the way MXZWFO will vouch for this also. So hey "SEAHUNT" where are the pictures?
