• 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.

What is the best clutch setup for the 02 XCR 800? Its my dads and it is basically stock but has the slp power dome heads on it. We cant seem to get the midrange right. He has the Fett Brothers Heavy Hitter Adjustable weights in it as well and no matter what we do nothing seems to help. Carbs are clean and so are the exhaust valves. Im thinking it may be the helix and secondary spring which are stock. At the end of the year he brought the sled home after a trip and the belt was pretty much melting on the clutches. Can anyone help me out?:confused:

Xcr 800

I had a ported one with heads and SLP pipes in a 01 RMK chassis. I ran it at elevation with the stock helix (R12) and spring (silver/blue) in a button clutch. Tried the Team and could never get it to hold RPM. I used a almond round Polaris spring and 10-54 weights. Geared to 2.05:1 with a 159 x 2 inch track. Held right on 8500 rpm and would launch like being shot out of a canon.
Not sure what your elevation is but that's what I ran.

Stock gearing or 25- 40

dalton pro helix 50-36, 48-36 or a hsp 38x all worked well. The 38x had a slightly slower backshift per same spring adjustment

silver blue in the 3rd or dalton black red blue in the 2nd.

Primary,
poo almound round
poo wieghts stock or 2 grams more

The stock clutching was actually very good.

If you have all the stock clutching parts put them in and see how it works.

Never heard anything good about slp heads at low elevation
