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.
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.
I am looking at replacing the seat/fuel tank on my 99 RMK 700, I have found a really nice seat off a 2000 XCR 800, it has the wrap around taillight mine has the flat taillight. will it interchange to my sled with no problems?
I'm sure it works. The gas tanks are the same. Both are same chassis. The trunk is different but with some minor work it should be doable. The trunk hides the coolant lines that jump from the two coolers in the tunnel.
I think the XCR must be a 99, he sent me pictures of the bottom of his seat and the cooler and lines on top of his tunnel, and it looks the same as mine except for the tail light, pretty sure I can make it work.
Picked up the seat, looks like I will have to drill new holes at the rear where the seat bolts down and reroute the fuel line because it comes out of the top corner instead of the lower center, I think it was a good deal for $150.00
