Heavy Steering and Darting Issue

Question:

Dear Motorhead,

I have a 2005 yamaha RS Rage and love it except for the heavy steering effort/darting issues.

I want to change the skis but am unsure which brand would work the best on my sled. I have been contemplating the ski doo pilot 5.7’s. Do you have any suggestions, or any other methods to reduce darting and heavy steering effort?

I also have an ’03 Ski Doo Renegade 600 HO, which steers effortlessly and carves like a knife with out the darting. I am also wondering what would be a good set of replacement shocks for it that are rebuildable and affordable.

Thanks,

William

Thanks for your email!

You are on the right track with the Ski-Doo Pilots for your Rage. They will work exceptionally well and I believe BRP even offers a kit for your Rage.

I assume your Renegade is a ZX – not a Rev – right? If your Renegade has rebuildable shocks – and I think it does – just have them serviced – the difference will amaze you and it’s the cheapest way to go.

If not, look around for a set of X package ZX rebuildable KYB’s at a salvage dealer. This would provide you with a rebuildable set of shocks at a decent price.

As well, it is possible Ryde FX has fitments for your Renegade. Check with Parts Unlimited on line.
