all we keep hearing from Polaris riders here is that the Axys chassis is so 'fun' to ride, so maybe Cat needs to invent/offer an unlimiter strap rear suspension for those types and keep the planted suspension for the rest of us. the Riot should be able to lift the skis when you whack the throttle, shouldn't it?



what are your suggestions?
There were some guys on ac chat that were shortening the limiter strap on the riot for trail riding to make it corner better. It's all for what feel your looking for.

Then the next guy removes the strap completely and says it still won't wheelie enough. Tough to make it right for everyone.
Cat definitely needs some choices on spring orders though. I'm a Cat and Polaris guy and the Poo spring order makes it hard to buy a Cat the last 5 years.

Poo - bigger Pidd

Cat - make it fun. Mnstang is an idiot. The goal of a trail sled isn't to rationalize a small penis and rip through them as fast as possible, but to put a smile on the owners face. I could give a rats ass if someone is faster than me but it bums me out when their smile is bigger

They should all come with free WiFi on sleds for 2022.

All sleds should come with the ridelite system.

Prices. Thatís my biggest complaint and the biggest reason why I havenít bought a brand new sled in 11 years.

I know this sounds probably stupid to some but, no manufacture makes the sled that I 110% really want, right out of the box. They all have good attributes that I like. When I could spring order a brand new sled for $9,500-10,000 that got me 90%ish to what I wanted, I didnít mind putting a couple of grand into it to make it exactly what I wanted.

While Polaris has spent a lot of time making their spring order sleds have a ton of options, I still canít build exactly what I want, even after spending $14,000 (retail). Cat is actually MUCH closer in the bang for the buck category. Problem is? I have ridden nearly every iteration of the PC chassis and even modded, Iím not a fan. Same with Doo. I could spend a STUPID amount of money to build a Doo but at the end of the day, I just am not comfortable on them, whatsoever.

I think the tech in the current sled offerings is sub par as well when compared to even current SXS offerings. Itís really pathetic. The automotive industry has loads and loads of tech that can be converted for use by sled companies and they just choose not to use it. A lot of that tech could make sled development much more consistent and even sled reliability much better. Itís ridiculous to think that here we are, in 2020, and simple things like fouling plugs or melting plastic is an issue on these things. Especially for what they cost and the limit time they get used.

Just a few initial thoughts I have.

I would like to see sleds with the NS1 system as an optional upgrade from the factory. It really is a great add on IMO. That 8" display is just fantastic when riding on the trails. (if it'll ever snow again too)
