• 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.


2002 Polaris Edge X 700 Primary Clutch

Dec 14, 2017
I have an 02 Edge X 700. I was having belt blowing issues and decided to send my primary in for a rebuild. Found out I had a cracked sheeve so had to scrap it. I bought a used primary from a guy that looked to be in good shape. He said it came out of a 99 XC 700 that had an 02 VES swap in it. The clutch itself is stamped with a 2005 date and has "914" below it. I can't seem to find any part # to confirm what this came off of. I'm about to send this in for a rebuild to ensure I'm good to go for the season. I have a Almond/Blue spring and 10-64 weights on the way for it. Will also replace the spring in the stock secondary with a Polaris Silver/Blue. Can anyone confirm what this clutch could have come off of? It has a silver spring but I'm not sure if that's a Polaris or aftermarket.

Will I have any issues with this clutch on my sled if I have it rebuilt and the belt clearance correct?

I appreciate any help I can get.

Cracked primaries still run just fine. You just have to make sure the center bolt is torqued. And when you pull it, you use a C-clamp to keep it from pulling apart at the crack. The critical items with primaries is the slop of the weight allowing them to bump into the main frame, which could cause it to explode. So you put in new weights with new liner bearings and you replace the bolts that hold the weights. And you are good to go. As far as a non-edge primary on an edge crankshaft, it may not be compatible and you better see if it fits by trying to install it, before you piss away a lot of money on maintenance that you could do yourself for pennies.
