I got a 98 Indy 500 with 4" carbides on the skis. I recently tightened the front limiter strap on the slide rail to get more ski pressure. I rode maybe 400 miles and I smoked the front part of the wear bars on both skis. Is this from the limiter strap or from the fact there are more roads to ride on and its raining? Im putting new 6" carbides on and I hate to ruin them right away.
Any help would be great.

No it should not be from tightening the limiter strap. My ultra had the stock steels ski's on last winter and they did that but when I put the plastic ski's on it doesn't do it any more.
