carbide wear

i have about 1000miles on my carbides and the small section on the back is worn out completely , the center and front are good still. usually they say you need to shim your ski to keep the front from wearing but have never heard of people having to shim the front to keep the rear from wearing. Do i need to shim or do you think there is another issue i need to address .

A lot of sleds wear the front of the wear bar down first...a sign that the skis are not running parallel to the ground and are shimmed to correct it. I don't see why you couldn't shim the the front to correct your wear.

Check out Bergstrom's shimming solution

I made shims to correct the ski angle on some of my previous Cats.

I did that on my sled and another fellows. with the Polaris all you need is a 1/4 inch spacer. I used a piece of a hyfax under the rubber . It steers considerable better with less darting even without dual runners. ski now climbs out of ruts rather than searching for them.

I have not used those skis. Thought maybe you had the DS skis. I have had no issues like your describing. Shim under the saddle is a fix of sorts. Good luck, maybe someone with these skis, will chime in.
