The lack of detailed limiter strap instructions had me thinking the same thing. The first time (3 or 4 actually) I assembled the limiter strap it was always the same length or shorter than stock. Once I folded/ routed it correctly, it was longer. Once you get it all installed, prepared to be impressed. Reduce the RTS spring rate (or at least reduce the preload over stock ProRMK)-- take it easy on a whooped out trail-- it will bottom if you are trying to snocross your way out there.I got iceage 163 khaos rails and raptor conversion kit. I measured the front mounting bolt with the factory rails, 11.5 inches from ground. I installed khaos rails with stock limiter strap and shock. It still measures 11.5 inches.. I installed the raptor shock extender and started on the limiter strap only to find the raptor strap is shorter than my stock pro rmk strap. From what i can tell on a pro rmk install khaos rails and the mount the skid in the lower assault hole and save $100 bucks on the raptor scam
Everything Murph has stated is spot on. I did the 163 Ice age Khaos Bomber rails. (beautiful rails and look TOUGH) I also added the Raptor FTS conversion eyelet to my Raptor Kinetic shocks. After 4 days of riding! WOW this sled is so FUN and I think way easier to ride. And incase Murph was wondering, with this setup and a TURBO, I still didn't flip over backwards. It pulls the skis up but is still predictable, maybe my shocks help control that? The Kinetics are really good.Finally took it out for two days of riding........ WOW! If you are looking for more playfulness...... Do it. The feeling on the skis is lighter and able to change direction better through running board inputs.
The sled defiinitely wheelies more and front end feels a lot lighter on climbs--- so if you are a chute slayer, this might not be the best option. I'm not a climber/ highmarker. My riding style has been described by others as "****-holing", I like finding drainages and tree riddled routes to ridgelines where I''m spending as much time traversing horizontally as I am straight up.
The other interesting thing I found with the wheelieing while climbing--- it's NOT a trenching wheelie, leading to a stuck. Now, I left some massive looking "turbo trenches" (normally aspirated), but did NOT get stuck.
I am sold on the geometry.
My FTS is as loose as I can make it. RTS set to 10 5/8" and also tried it 1/4 inch stiffer as well. Both worked well. My sled is ROWDY. I love it. I think you have something set up wrong? Did you get the limiter strap adjusted right?? you did do the longer eyelet too?? I noticed you said your sled is a 15? that is a pro ride chassis. That may be why??Snowman. How tight do you have your fts adjusted to. What year of machine. I have a 15 pro rmk 155 and I installed iceage 163 khaos rails raptor shock conversion. I have the fts almost as tight as it will go. The rts is loose and this sled still rides like a tank in the front end.
A pro ride chassis sled will never lose the feel of 40# of concrete attached to the front bumper.........
