• 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.

You being in Cusick, I would take to Cranky Joe in Spokane. I have his number if you want it. Or, you could send it to 1200psi, his price is lower than Joe's but you have to pay shipping. You also need to look into getting the primary freshened up and balanced- 1200psi does this as well, not sure about Joe because I forgot to ask him :doh:

Not to talk anyone out of the big bearing kit, but didn't Indy dan suggest that truing the crank and clutch was a better fix?
Keeping the primary fresh and clean will help keep the crank from getting wobbly. Once its wobbly, IIRC Dan says it's a matter of when, not if. Indy Dan's mod is very extensive- new crank end, new clutch, machine work, etc but also comes with a price tag. Before Indy Dan started doing his kits, the big bearing mod was the accepted fix for the problem. But... it has to be done right (provide oiling for the bearings and make sure that the cases aren't all hogged out and trashed) or the crank can still fail. You can get the big bearing mod done for $500 or less, or shell out $2k for Indy Dan's motor. Unless you know for sure you will be keeping the sled for a very long time, I can't see spending $2k on a sled that's not worth much more than that. If I were a rich man, I'd get the Indy Dan bottom end, but I'm not so big bearing it is.
