a bit less ski pressure but ski pressure is given or taken away by adjusting the front shock of your rear suspension. the spring pressure you have taken away is the resistance the spring has to pull out the shock to full extension.
I'm tring to set up my Mach-z 96 .... the thing really pushes through the corners ..... I have the ski shocks set at max , front rear 2 clicks from max and strap let all the way out , Rear set at full soft ....
sounds like you are up pretty high on the front rear shock. you said pushes in the corners i think you mean doesn't steer well in the corners and goes wide. set the rear at the second from the bottom unless you go much over 200 lbs. set the front rear in the middle for now and take some of the spring tension off the ski springs. i go 230 lbs. and set it like that, in fact if you lift the front of my sled up the spring tension anymore loose the springs jingle from being loose. you might later set the rearmost at the 3rd highest if you bottom out too often, i bottom out once or twice on a 120 mile ride.
if you shorten your limiter straps you will put more weight towards the front of the sled. it will take some fine tuning to get it right. but you'll know its too tight if your arms hurt after every ride!!
Yep, I was on the grass. I figured you would know that. I am not too far from you, I burlington.
The company I work for used to have an office in Downtown Brantford. Right next to the Armory.
I have a really big back yard and I was moving the sled on to the trailer. I had to give the throttle a couple of pulls on the grass. The machine used to be a stock 95 storm, but I just finnished putting an Xtra-10 front and rear suspension on it. I also installed a shorter gear, and a new track and studs.
