• 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"


    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.

Hi Guys, been doing lots of searching and I know that a lot of you have a huge amount of knowledge on this so I thought I would bounce my thoughts off you. I bought my wife a 06 700 RMK and the first trip out I popped a check engine light in the parking lot and went into limp mode. I called my dealership to see if they could throw digital wrench on it and give me an idea what the issue was. They pulled it all apart and found a broken wire to the TPS, so I had them fix it and reset the TPS for me. Took it to McCall yesterday and it rode like a champ for the first 20 miles or so. Then I started having issues getting it started unless I held the throttle open a VERY small bit. Then she started having a slight bog issue and swapped me sleds. I noticed that the temp light was flickering so I checked that and it was at 215, then the MFD started going on and off, and when it was on, I only had 1 bar on the volt meter. I pointed it back to the trailer 3-5 miles away, and as the RPM came up I got 3 bars. The only other issue with the sled I’m aware of is that the Brake light isn’t working.

If I get home tonight before dark, I will clean up the grounds and check it again. If I’m still having an issue I also have a 05 900, if I’m reading the fiche right they are the same on both sleds o I can at least test using those. If that doesn’t work should I start thinking Stator? Still not sure how that would play into the equation…

These are the part #’s I found.
4012611 - Regulator
401114 – Capacitor

Thanks in advance for any advice!
