121" REV squirrely on trail.
« on: February 16, 2009, 09:52:16 PM »
Can anyone give me any tips on getting a rev shorty to track straight on the trail?  Front and rear want to swap ends and it needs constant bar input to track straight.  Thanks

Lengthen front limiter and or tighten front spring.  That or stretch it to 136.
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

With the tetter-totter set up on those Rev's, it's tough. It's time to get the suspension adjusted to a more balanced position. Powderhound suggestions will take some weight off the front. Which may get twitchy if you hit it hard coming out of corners and the front end won't stay down.

Note that Doo's solution on the 06's was to raise the front skis and lowering the front end 1").

I put 96 studs down the middle of both the shorties I had - problem solved.   One was an '05 800 the other was the 06 Pooslayer 500SS. Both are sold now

Those REVs are perfect out of the box  :P  I would suggest leaving it alone and just getting used to it...  :whistle:

Just kidding, the 2006 models were lowered 1" as Uplate stated, to help the darting situation. I think I would go that route first, otherwise studding the track ought to help it as well...

Or you could go snopork's way, and just sell them....  :eek:
