Was greasing sled,deciding if I should shorten my limiter strap, or try doing something with a different coupler block, when I noticed that 2 on the block is thicker than 3! Measured it and sure enough, it is. Someone must have trouble with numbers. 1 3 2 5 4........

Was adjusting mine today and thought the same thing. With them set on 1 had pretty good ski lift, thought I'd try 2, but 2 looks thicker than 3. (had a couple of beers thought it was me) Thanks for clearing that up. I'll try 2 that should be 3 and see how it is. I'm 210 and like some lift, but 1 was to much.
I'm going back to beer now!!

What is the size of the allen wrench needed to adjust the block? My sled is up north in a trailer and I don't have that big of a wrench and need to buy it. TIA.

I have mine set on 3. I noticed the same thing with the thickness of #2. Has anyone noticed a difference between the two?

Measure from the outside of the plastic coupling block to the center of the bolt that holds it on. The distance from 3 to center of bolt is thicker than the distance from 2 to center of bolt. Only the plastic appears thicker on 2 vs 3. Just my observation.

Without looking at my sled right now, I'd have to say that fiver probably made a very good observation. Good... that's hopefully one less thing we have to worry about anyway! -- Roy

OK, guys.. I just cropped a close-up of the coupling block and measured it in the photo. #3 is higher than #2 as measured from the CENTER of the bolt to the OUTSIDE. What is fooling you guys is the flat spot on the center hub makes #2 look bigger. Take a look and you will see what I mean

Checked mine tonight, 3 is bigger than two so it is OK. Anyone heard of any aftermarket couplers that would give less transfer than the 3 stock setting. It would be interesting to try and wouldn't be that expensive.

Talk to ya

one more view with arrows. I think this is clearer
It's the half circle of the hub that gives the illusion that #3 is thinner than #2.

I take the plastic off the blocks and just use the bolt and the aluminum insert..........It gives a bit more ski lift in the deep and still keeps the ski's planted in the corners.

Need help. How do you adjust the limiter strap on an F7? It was so easy on a ZR600. Need to put more weight on the skis. I will probably check where my coupler blocks are set too. Rear springs are set at 2nd (right) and 3rd(left) setting.
