Your position on the machine affects its handling. Follow the instructions in your manual to adjust these items.

  • Handlebars: Set them at a height so that you can steer and operate the controls comfortably, minimizing strain on your arms.
  • Suspension: Adjust the ski suspension and the front and rear of the track suspension to match your weight and riding style.
  • Headlight: Adjust the tilt of the headlight according to the load distribution on your machine. For example, if you typically sit back on the seat or carry a load at the rear of the snowmobile, the front rides higher than normal; therefore, the headlight may need to be tilted downward slightly.
  • Mirror: Adjust the mirror according to your height and sitting position. During a ride, you may need to adjust the mirror to reduce glare from lights behind you.
