• 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.

On my 2000 700 RMK I went from the 136 to a series 4 159 X 2.125 with all windows open and clipped and left every thing else alone. What a machine, milage alone went from 7 to 13 + and it just rolls so much easier you can feel it. The new thinner track makes a real difference. It is 100 mph plus any old time and I am usually carrying a ten inch ice auger and all the gear.

Like Manowar said, personal preference. I have a 99 700 with PSI twins and a 151 2". It was originally a 136 2", so I geared it down when I did the track swap thinking I had to, but, ended up going back to stock gearing. It made enough power to still spin the heck out of the 151. My opinion is to try the setup first and decide later if you need to regear or not.
