Default 2015 XRS, darting, inside ski lift.

I have a 15 xrs 800 I have tried everything except new ski or sending shocks out for re valve which is plan this month.

I have Sharper bars (new every year) Tried limited strap adjustment, loose center spring, lowered front shocks.

I talked to Monster perf and he sugested installing higher rate front springs from the Enduro sled. That helped but still darting and lifting.

I want to corner flat and no ski lift or darting.

Should I just ditch the stock ski and buy aftermarket set? If so, which ones?

Thanks

Send all your shocks off to Monster for a rebuild/revale and lowering of the front shocks. Then then follow the suspension setup instructions and take a few hours and adjust and ride the same couple turns, hills, bumps.

I installed a set of woody navigators last year and it helped with the darting plus proper rear suspension setup.

First of all, how much do you weigh? How aggressive of a rider are you?

Have you adjusted your toe?
Do you know the difference between tracking and darting? Sure it's darting?
Cornering flat? It is rider forward...you need to lean. If you are a lazy rider then you should have a different sled.

Have your front shocks shortened internally is usually step one if you are serious about handling on any sled.They come long from the factory for a plush ride.Do they make a bigger sway bar?

Thanks for the responses.
I have the Monster perf sheet and set up sled according to it.
Yes I lean when cornering.
Toe adjustment is something i have not done yet, what should it be?

1/4". Shim skis as well. One of the first things you should do on any sled. Won't help ski lift, but scooching forward and leaning will

Did they shorten them at all?It really helps take out the body roll.
