That sled should lift it's skis easily. I would check compression, clean carbs, and check over the clutches

If they are cracked that bad I would replace or you risk a lean burn down.

Replacing carb mount flanges.... no it wont help. I would definatly check the clutches.

Also if you are not getting the power to the snow it wont happen either. What size track do you have on it?

It's got a great track on it with I think one and a fourth lugs maybe more and it's got a clutch kit in it and it kicks in at 5000 rpm

What you need is better weight transfer.
On the rear arm of the skid there is a short section [torque arm] and where it connects to the rail there are two holes. move it to the front hole and this will improve traction and transfer which will allow you to pop up whenever you want to by applying some throttle.

Can do it on any sled, right? We use to ride wheelies on 292 ss colt. But triples w/ pipes are heavy in front end. its never gonna do whellies like f7 or snow pro. plus fasttrack suspension helps keep skis on ground when acelerating. Its designed to keep skis down best possible, i believe.

I have a 98 ZRT and I have a hard time keeping the skies on the ground. I run with Vforce Reeds and the sled is piped. It could be that your secondary clutch spring is getting weak alowing the your Drive clutch to pull the belt in too quickly. If this is happening then your starting off in too high of a gear ratio. Also studs would help too. But the way I weigh 260.

I guess I must have been dreaming that my stock motor 96 600 ZRT was able to stand up on end with an 02 ZR CROSS COUNTRY skid. Mine is set up to keep the skis on the ground and it still stands up whenever I want, unless F7s and Sno Pros can do back flips just by pinnin it, then I'd say a ZRT is every bit as capable of doing the same, just keep in mind the power it takes to do it, being heavier up front and a skid designed to keep it from pulling skis up its pretty clear how much power the triples really have.
