• 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.

bought a couple 800 Dragons to part or fix, the 2009 with blown crank (mag rod) is getting parted out as chassis is not so nice and the 2010 is getting fixed (bad crank and hole in case) as it is in very clean nice condition. Is the 09 engine compatible to use in the 10 as far as fuel system and wiring? Haven't pulled the 10 apart yet and not sure if it has CFI-2 or 4. I know the cylinders and upper cases are the main differences but will the 09 cylinders and case work in place of the 10? Cylinders and cases are in decent shape in the 09 where the 10 case is definitely worse (windowed). Had a buddy give me a 2011 case but it is CFI-2 and he has a decent cylinder to go with and if the 10 is CFI-2 I would go that route for the thicker skirts. Looking to see if I can build a decent engine and just do a swap one night. Limited shop space.

All are CFI-4 on 800 RMKs of that vintage, ECUs are compatible too, only differences may be the flash in them and the injector color setting. If you have yellow injectors your ECU better be the yellow injector flash...

Thanks, ended up rebuilding 09 engine and installing in the 10 chassis. Both had CFI 4 with yellow injectors. 2010 motor still ran but big hole in case, missing part of PTO intake side cylinder skirt and most of intake side of piston skirt. All pieces gone, Crank still turns fine but would never trust that rod again. 09 engine just needed crank, pistons and repaired some stress cracks in bottom of case from when Mag rod bearing failed. Runs great with the SLP pipe set and PCV. Sled was run with a fuel cap that had no plastic left over guage and stored without a cover in back of pickup. Full of water. Used the whole fuel system off the 09 including the tank. And no I did not re-use the 2010 crank, got a rebuilt from CV Tech with 1 yr warranty.
