• 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.


1999 700 into a 2002 edge 800 ple

Feb 27, 2021
I recently blew my 2002 xc sp 800 up. Half of the water pump side piston skirt went into the crankcase so the engine is not worth rebuilding so I bought a 700 out of a 1999 gen 2 chassis. The problem I am having is the wiring harness does not match at the plug in right out of the engine. The biggest connector is the same but the two smaller ones are completely different. On the 800 there is two small connectors with 3 wires each. The 700 has two smaller connectors one with three wires and one with two. Can I swap the stators under the flywheel or do I have to get a wiring harness to match the 700?

Did you get the CDI/coil with the 700, I think you are going to need them. I have a 97 700 that I have had in a Gen ll and now an edge chassis, seemed like it was plug and play on both.
