• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

I received the first shipment of cables specifically made to replace the troublesome throttle/ oil cable combination in use on the 05 and 06 900 IQ.
I installed one on my sled and took some pictures showing the clean install.
I am selling the cables for $75.00 each. Please PM me for questions or order.
Thank you.
Claude.

so the cable splits instead of relying on the small oiler cable from the throttle body linkage (delete small cable).
Is the action at the oiler the same?

Nice setup for sure!
I was expecting some sort of spring to ensure the oiler returns

Yes the oil pump functions exactly the same with the same travel as before.
You don't have to deal with the short cable coming apart anymore. One added bonus is you can lift the throttle body without having to remove the primary and sub frame, which is nice if you want to check the intake boots or oil pump and lines. The throttle feels much nicer and smoother with this new cable.

The new cable will work with risers up to 4", the above pics are with a 2.5" riser. For anything above that, let me know and I can have them built to fit taller risers.

Throttle/ oilpump cable for tall risers.

Hey guys, I have received a few inquiries for cables to fit tall risers.
The cables I have right now will work with risers up to 4".
If there's enough interest, I could have a few made to fit up to 10" or whatever you need. Please let me know how many and how high so I can start a count for the next order.
Thanks.

TTT...so can someone shed some light on what the problem is with the factory cables? Is this something I should replace BEFORE it is a problem?

The factory oil cable is installed between the oil pump, mounted solid on the engine, and the throttle body, mounted on rubber boots. With vibration and torque, the factory oil cable will fail at the flexible portion of the cable and start sticking so the oil pump lever does not return to idle when you release the throttle. You will start to go through a lot more oil then normal and you will have to replace your spark plugs a lot more often.

Please take note that I will be away and will not be able to answer PMs or emails for two weeks starting Jan 4th. All inquiries or order will be answered after Jan18.
