• 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.


08 dragon WE shock bushing replacement?

hi there. just trying to help out my friend's son with fixing his shock bushing.

polaris part # is 1800319

does anyone know if there is a cheaper aftermarket replacement for this?

or if he can upgrade to the 09 bearing instead? # 1800040

any other options?

thanks, but no luck unfortunately.

this is the eyelet bushing on the ski shocks. i should have mentioned that in the first place.

looks like polaris switched it to a spherical bearing, which is actually a bit cheaper. would be nice if that part fit in place of the bushing, but i haven't found any info on that yet.
yeah, this bushing mounts the same way, so you'd think that it would be a drop-in replacement... but without knowing the exact dimensions it's a bit of a gamble. online parts stores say it's not compatible, but who knows.
