“Simple – Darting Solution”
Darting – is the uncontrollable grabbing of the skis/ wear rods by the ruts in the trail moving the sled side to side in an unsafe manner.
Hunting – is unavoidable because the “Laws of Physics” dictate ski/wear rods follow the path of least resistance. This can be a nuisance but is not a safety issue. Once you grab the handlebars the sled should go, with little effort, where you point the skis.
Besides darting, out of balance skis will also cause the sled to push through the corners.
Other indications include:
Correctly adjusting ski balance will reduce or eliminate all those
symptoms. We do this by adding shims
to the bottom backsides of the rubber stops located under the spindle
bolts. By pushing the back of the ski down, pressure is taken off the
front and focused on the turning carbide. This allows the host bar to
deflect out of the ruts while maximizing the function of the turning
The thicker the Ski Saver the deeper the center groove is. Different depths determine how far the host bar can fall into the ruts. Thicker Ski Savers also reduce the effort needed to turn the handlebars. Sounds Too Simple To Work?
Shimming Tips –
How to bring the ski bolt hole into alignment to re-attach the ski to the spindle.
After installing shims and plugs (if required) per the instructions: Use a tapered rod about 10-12 inches long on the inside bolt hole to align ski bolt hole on the inside with the ski bolt coming through from the outside. When the ski bolts meets the tapered rod from the other side (inside the spindle) gently tap ski bolt with rubber mallet until bolt pushes tapered rod out. Alignment works best with some weight on the ski. Sometimes take a few try's but it works for me without a lot of strain.
Meyhew Line -up Punch - PN 461
Place a 2 x 4 on edge
under the outside edge of the ski. Move it forward or
2. Use a C-Clamp or a Come-Along.
3. Have someone push down on the front bumper.
Use a new cotter pin on bolts that require one.
If you do not get the results mentioned check for front end damage. If there is none go back to the OEM settings. There has to be a physical difference for you to get different results than the majority!

Despite The Hype, Similar Profiles Follow Similar Ruts
Every ski cannot be different, but being able to get out of other's paths, grooves or ruts is the key.
