• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • 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.

What do you have for clearance now, what drivers/size, and is the case in the stock location or has it been dropped and rolled?

7 tooth 2.86 pitch no slip driver is 6 1/4" diameter
8 tooth 2.86 pitch no slip driver is 7 1/8" diameter
9 tooth 2.52 pitch stock driver is 7.07" diameter
Measurements are from the walh bro's website

So if your running a 2.4" with the stock 9 tooth you should have room for the 2.6 with the 7 tooth 2.86 no slip drivers or do a drop and roll and run the 8 tooth no slip.

It looks like a 7 tooth x 2.86" lug spacing drivers will work with a 2.4" track with no drop and roll.
Yes it will work. I ran avid 7 tooth 2.86 drivers with a 2.4 155 2.86 track on my edge before I did the extended chain case. Now I'm running 8 thooth walhs no slip with the 2.4 track and have about 1" of clearance.

At what point does rubbing on top of the tunnel becomes a concern? This is assuming the skid is mounted in the stock location. I've got marks on top of my tunnel even from running a 2" track; I've always set tension per the service manual and never experienced any ratcheting, so pretty sure it's not from running a loose track. Based on that, I'd be concerned about losing track speed running a taller lug, but maybe the track doesn't flop around as much under power? Just curious.

2" tracks produce ratcheting with recommended track tensions on the 9 tooth standard drivers when the factory installed only 2 drivers in the 2004 800's. 2002's had 4 drivers, of which 2 of them had teeth on only one side. The 2002's would get ratchet if the track was too loose. In conclusion, the 800's need extrovert drivers if there are only two drivers, with just a 2 inch track.

I had a 2002 with only 2 drivers from the factory. pretty sure they all came that way since 97 700rmk all way up to last edge rmk models. all tracks will rub tunnel a bit when you pound the sled through whoops and whatnot. no big deal unless your seeing a lot of rubbing around the driver area.
