limiter strap adjustment

On a 95 XCR 440 where is a good place to start on the front limiter strap adjustment? I have 1 broke strap and the adjustment nut backed completely off the other so I'm starting from scratch. At least I found out why it was so squirrly.

As Red Green says "Keep your stick on the ice." Thanks Mike

Replace broken strap, adjust them so you have 1/2" of threads sticking out of the nut. This will be a good starting point.

Anything stock pretty much sucks!

On my 84 srv I set it up so that the very front of the track is aprox 1/4 inch off the concrete with me sitting all the way to the back. That gave me just enough ski pressure to turn and still have traction.

From what I've heard they are primarly for powder and no skages. I hope someone will correct me if I am mis informed. If so I will go back and buy the ones I passed up.
