• 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.

It could be carburetor related or clutch related or a combination of both so more info is needed as to what you have done. Carbs cleaned and adjusted properly including proper jetting for pipes? Clutches cleaned and parts replaced if needed? Belt deflection and belt to primary sheave clearance okay? Did this run okay previously? Were you the one who put on the twin pipes?

Air pods never a good idea in my opinion because of pressure build up in engine compartment at speed and sucking in warm air.

Here is a fairly decent write up on Keihin carbs just for information purposes as to what portions of the carb affects things. https://www.duncanracing.com/TechCenter/KeihinCarbJetting.pdf

How are the clutches? I run an 01 rmk 700 in my hawk and I have fought a bottom end bog since day one. Ive also noticed pipe heat makes a HUGE difference with this engine. I was told these engines just done make much power down low. Im running a venom pink spring and that helps engage above the bog but im still fighting pipe heat. Are you running rack style carbs or the singe kehins?
