Mountain riders have discovered the Arctic Cat M-Series sleds can over tension the track as the suspension goes through its travel. For this reason, many riders have resorted to running their tracks looser than they feel comfortable with.
While many will install extrovert drivers to help deal with this problem, a geometry revision is helpful to cure the root problem; inconsistent track tension as the suspension goes through its travel cycle.
One of the most popular options to help this problem is to install the â€œM7 Front Torque Arm Relocation Kitâ€ from Holz Racing in Lynden, WA. www.holzracingproducts.com. This innovative ($69.95) kit fixes the track tensioning problem on stock M7 rear suspensions so the suspension can cycle freely without the track over-tightening. This, of course, frees up horsepower and improves the ride quality. Most owners have found this to be a â€œmust haveâ€ for an M7!
