Default 2013 M 800 153 Trenching

I'm looking for any suggestions to get this sled to get on top of the snow. I went from the stock settings to 60 psi up front, the front of the track loosened the coil, rear shock at 140 and limiter strap all the way out. The sled is still acting like a ditch witch. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Btw 250 lbs ready to ride.

Lower bar risers and pushed forward.

Possible clutch engagement too high of rpms?

Also agree on cutting all the small lugs off

Limited strap out will get skis off snow, but also make it trench worse in powder. Your allowing the front of the skid to drop and cut into the snow, if it drops, then the rear drops or cuts even further causing trench. Lighten up front skid shock, add more to rear, yet transfer your body weight and stance more forward while riding.

Getting a sled up on top of the snow definitely is affected by setup but we must always remember a basic law of physics, great flotation is best obtained by evenly spreading the weight of sled and rider over the skis and track while still trying to progressively pack the snow as we pass over it. The problem is when we are beginning from a dead stop and we have added psi only to the rear shock for a heavier rider we by default are transferring weight to the skis also. This lessens the ability of the skis to get on top quickly and now we are pushing through the snow rather than climbing on top.

On the early pro-climbs the best thing we can do in my opinion is put on a more flexible and wider ski such as Polaris Grippers. Once the front of the sled lifts itself up on top rather than being plowed up on top, trenching becomes much less of an issue. Also when we add air to the rear track shock we need to pay attention to sharing some of that extra load by the front track shock and spring.

My engagement dropped to 2900 when I added the tki belt drive and the ultra light brake rotor from bdextreme. I love the slow and technical control now

I replaced the skis at the beginning of the season w/ C&A bx's.

Just cut off the fingers, it's a piece of cake with pruning sheers. Headed riding next Friday and will give an update when I return. Going to adjust ski shock and rear skid pressure a bit in the hills see if I can get somewhat dialed in.
