• 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.


2000 700 RMK Floods when warm

Jan 9, 2014
My 700 has developed an unfortunate habit of flooding itself out once it gets to elevation and warmed up. Up until last season it was my every day, always reliable Then it just started giving me grief. Runs great on the trailer and for half a day and then just doesn’t want to start. It is fouling plugs and obviously running rich. Burns through the fuel As well. When I get it home it’s back to its normal self.

looking for suggestions on what to try next. I’ve been through every thing I can think of. All thoughts are welcome - thanks in advance!

Do you still have the altitude compensators still hooked up? You mentioned going up in elevation and then running rich. If you still have those on there then that's your problem. Peter

I agree that the problem most likely lies with the ACCS unit. They do go bad and when it does it basically defaults to jetting which is for low elevation with cold temperatures.
