Default skis pointing left?

So I am a new rider and when I was practicing sidehilling on Saturday i was coming downhill and headed straight for a tree. instead of hitting it dead on i tried to avoid it and when i did i hit my right ski bottom/side of it on the tree and went over my bars. My skis are now pointed slightly to the left and my check engine light came and my sleds low end power kind of sputters then cleans out when you get on the gas. Any suggestions on what this is to point me in the right direction of what I should be looking for/at. The sled is a 2014 xm.

Thanks,
Levi

Sounds like you bent some of the parts. Did you knock anything loose on the motor?

Measure your ski alignment front/rear.. This will verify if you bent a tie-rod or a lower a-arm.. The check engine light may be due your exhaust temp sensor being knocked lose during impact.. This is the sensor that is plugged into the exhaust canister, not the pipe but they are connected and on the same harness.. Wouldn't hurt to check, there is an active recall on those coming loose and the minor impact would defiantly have given it just enough to knock it off therefor check engine light/coding and also could be why you have the low end runnability issue because its getting to much heat and burning the sensor up if out of place.. If you can;t figure it out take it to your local delaer and have the complete a buds hookup.

I crashed this last weekend and had a similar problem. My left lower a-arm was bent, so I replaced it. After that, both skis were pointed to the left. After a close inspection, everything was fine, but the steering stem was twisted. I adjusted the tie-rods to even it back out and everything is good enough for me.

Sorry for the really late response back. Thank you for the reply's. My right ski does appear to be pushed back just slightly. I noticed when I put my sled in the back of my truck and the right ski didn't hit the front of the bed even. I've been doing some reading and I'm guessing its a bent S-Module?

Yep. I've been told it's totally doable to bend it back by pulling the bottom of spindle forward with come along or similar if it's not that bad.

I hooked up a strap to my truck and to the a arm, then took off in the truck. bent it mostly back. Did you dent your pipe? that would take away the power
