'93 EXT 580z questions...
Has anyone had a problem with this sled('93 EXT 580Z) in deep snow? It runs like a charm on hardpack but when I get in the fluffy deeper stuff it will start to bog bad, to the point it wont move. If you sit a little bit your back moving and going fine again for a little while and same thing happens. I figure its sucking in snow and causing problems, can a preson tape off all the hood vents and run it without causing trouble? The belt starts to slip sometimes in the fluffy stuff so I know its getting in there. I know the previous owner had bigger pilots installed to help it run better, not sure if that makes the problem worse or not.
My other problem is riding this thing on the trails is horrible, its all over the place. It has new carbides and a newer 1 inch track, front shocks are set as soft as they go, front rear shock is about in the middle of its settings. The rear adjusters are set in the middle as well. Any ideas on getting it to handle better? Thanks for the help. It has the stock steel ski's with plastic skins installed.
