Hey everyone.......I'm looking for a bit of help with my suspension set-up. First, It's an F5 Sno-Pro, 102 studs, and 8" Woody's Doolys on front. I weigh 185 (lost 42# to make up for the Firecat weight gain.....and my own health) and ride standing up 98% of the time. The problem i found is that my Fcat seems to push through corners. Handling improves the more I bring my body towards the front of the machine. So, is the answer to shorten the limiter strap, or adjust the front spring rate, or a combination of the two? I'm new to suspension tuning, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks......

Either one or both will work. Results will vary depending on the extent of your adjustments. Probably the single biggest factor will be the forward movement of weight through body position though. The sled is very sensitve to rider input, as you have seen. Everything is "on center" any movement on either side of that has a dramatic effect on handling.

Thanks Thumper....I'm gonna try shortening the limiter strap and fine tune using the front spring adjusters.
