• 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.

1998 Indy 700 RMK running problem

I have a 1998 Indy 700 RMK with around 800 miles on it and it started to have a problem. After it runs for 30 to 40 minutes when you come to a stop and then give it gas to go the engine will not rev up high enough to engaged the clutch, even at full throttle. We then hooked on to it to tow it back to the truck and after 5 minutes or so it runs fine again. Revs up and powers itself fine. That is for 30 minutes or so then it all starts to happen again. I took the carbs off and cleaned them but next time we went out it started it all over again. What am I missing?

When this happens does it idle okay? Does it backfire when you give it gas? Is there a heavy gas smell to the exhaust? Is it running on one cylinder? Check the vent line for the fuel tank to ensure it is open and not kinked. It could also be a coil that goes open when it gets warm.
