98 ski doo grand touring understeering problem

I am looking for advice on how to adjust for a terible steering problem on the sled. I have plastic skis and carbides. I think I need to try to shift weight forward with suspension adjustments? Any advice, or is this a common problem with the sled?

Re: 98 ski doo grand touring understeering problem

I'm really not all that familiar with the Doo suspensions, but I know on my own sled there are straps located at the front of the rar suspension called limiter straps, I believe your machine has then as well, I think you tighten them up to get more ski pressure, but then again it could be to loosen them, haha, you can also change the preload tension on the front rear suspension shock, a combination of them both should do it for you. I don't think this is a common problem, in fac I thought they were always a little heavy to steer, sounds like someone over coreected the problem
