    I never thought about the toe in. Do you check it like a regular wheel? ie. measure distance between the skis front & back?

    Yeah front and back like a car. Look carefully at the skis though, you can twist them from hitting stuff. There should be a spec on the toe. Ask the dealer or try google. There is probably a video on how to do it. Also check the suspension settings. Most people run their machines way too stiff.

    Cool! I'll give it a try. My dealer sucks here, so I'll have to do it myself.

    I think you can. I had the universal backrest too but found the bombardier backrest held me much better. I think it would probably fit on the yamaha real easy. you can find them on ebay. It makes a huge difference. However if your riding without a backrest now, anyting would likely help. Lots of info here on darting http://www.bergstromskegs.com/oui/darting_solutions.htm

    Nice ride there!

    I want a sled so bad again, its even worse we just got a fresh 8" of snow in the past couple days. But, I can't justify owning one. As soon as we get any decent snow its gone in a week or so. I'm for sure gonna have to go out west and rent one someday. Its on my bucket list.
