Default G4 side hill setup

How are you guys setting up these G4 sleds for side hill tree riding? 19 Freeride 154 I love the sled but it always wants to turn up hill? I'm changing to a short riser as I'm only 5'6" any other suggestions.... Will taking the limiter strap in a hole help with this?

I've found that foot position fore and aft on the running board is critical to this element of how the gen 4 side hills.


If your foot is further forward, the sled will tend to turn up hill. Further back, it's more likely to lose edge and turn down hill.


Try experimenting with your foot position. Even a couple inches forward or back can make a big difference, especially on the 154". That's the free solution.



Everything else involves shocks, t-motion lockout, spindles, bar height, etc. Are you running your limiter strap in stock position?

You will always struggle to sidehill that machine. I have definitely seen it done but it is a very difficult sled to sidehill consistently with. The t-motion and flex edge track conspire to wash you out, both need to go...

Suck up the limiter strap by one or two and stiffen up the rear suspension, it will sidehill way better but will not carve as nice. Or you can purchase the limiter strap adjust so you can have it out on the trail and deep days and in when your climbing and sidehilling. and foot position and body position is important too, the new spindles will be a huge help too available next fall. Yes to the 4.7 riser. I would personally no delete the t-motion, it does help in a few places but mostly on dust on crust, in many other ways it helps. It also loads the skid and put strain on parts, get the 2020 spindles instead.

FAKE NEWS!

The t-motion and flex edge track are a benefit not an impediment when it comes to side hilling. The Gen 4 is the easiest sled to side hill that we have in the fleet once you have the technique, which is much different than the RMK PRO I also ride.

Side hilling a Gen 4 requires a unique technique but once mastered pays a big reward with not as much effort required to side hill than other sleds.

Just my real world experience.

To each their own. I know what chassis gives me the most confidence and it certainly is no Doo.

Thanks for the input fellas! I'll make some changes to the sled and my riding position and give it another go. I'm thinking if the spindles and rubbers are reasonable $$ I might try them as well. As for the adjustable strap I'll try taking it in and if it's better I'll probably put that on there too.

Limiter up, gripper skis, t-motion delete, stiffen rear springs, your starting to head the right direction.

The sleds are just not designed to hold a super tight hard edge. Those things will help you and get you a lot closer to where you want to go.
