    2012 Renegade X hard steering
    Posted by saltyss on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 10:45 AM

    My stock 2012 Renegade X 800 steers pretty hard. I have the 1.25 ripsaw stock track with two studs per bar down the center. I am running the stock skis with 6 in Shaper carbides. I have the front track shock spring cranked down pretty tight to take some weight off the skis. I need advice from the experts on what ski/ carbide setups work best to lighten up the steering.I am open to aftermarket skis if that will help out, I just don't want to waste money on something that does not help the issue. I love the sled other than this problem. Thanks for the help!

    Shaper bars do have a tall flat profile that makes them ultra aggresive and sometimes hard to steer at slow speeds.if you soften your front ski spring pressure that may help.changing back to a standard round bar 6'' carbide may have to be what you do if you want to stay with the original ski.We have been selling alot of the curve xs skis on the new doos it has a good rocker on the keel and is very easy to turn and holds its line in the corners well,its parabolic shape also lets you go off trail and has alot of float for deep snow,i always suggest an aftermarket ski to anyone that hasnt tried them it is always a good investment in ride quality.

    Put the front skid shock back to where it was from the factory and see if it helps.

    Cranking it down is making the steering feel heavy, I have the same sled and it corners like it's on a rail with the same skis as yours. 

    pm me if you want and I will give you all the setup info I have on my sled.
