• 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.

2009 Assault will not go into reverse all the time

As stated, the machine will not go into reverse all the time. The engine rpm will drop but will not go to reverse.
I‘m sure that there is a thread about this but thought it would be easier just to post a new one. The sled is new to my son-in-law nd he is the one having the issue.

I told him to check the connections.
Amy help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Wax

Check compression, that can be a sign of a failing motor. Also when the VR goes it can do strange things. Make SURE the part number on the VR is the LATEST part number off Polaris' online parts, otherwise when it goes bad it can take out all the engine electronics... should do that anyway even if the sled is running fine...
If this checks out, TPS setting being off can cause this. What is the idle running?

sledhed: Thank you for your reply I greatly appreciate it. He is going to check the items you pointed out. I do not know what the engine rpm was. They are on their way back from riding. Thank you again

So we got the machine into the garage and checked the compression. Both cylinders are 100 psi cold. When the machine is idling it seems to have a miss to it. Going to check the coils to see if the are causing an issue. We confirmed that the machine still will not go into reverse. Decided to put a new set of plugs in it. Installed new plugs, started the machine, the reverse worked to back it off the trailer. Went to go forward with the machine and it died. Started it back up and tried the reverse and it will not work again.

Have not checked the voltage regulator as of yet. Not sure where to go with this.

It appears at this time the engine is low on compression. We are going to take the top end apart and see what gives. Where would a person get a complete piston kit for the engine. We do want to install the “fix it” kit. Thank you for your time and reply.
