• 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.

Dec 7, 2020
Recently had my 2010 rmk 800 rebuilt have been running it through some heat cycles and light riding the past couple days have about 30km on it now today I went for a ride got back left it outside for a couple hours While it was snowing , went to start it back up started first pull was running just fine but the dash is out and the headlight and tail light are dimmed right out until I give it a bit of throttle , I’m assuming it is a voltage regulator issue can’t find anything else it would be , just want to know some opinions before I go and purchase a new regulator tomorrow

Yes, VR, make SURE you get the latest updated part number one as that is the only one that protects the ECU from frying... I carried a spare with me b/c when that safer one fails it usually quits the sled completely and I wanted to be able to get back out of wherever I was... but it never failed on me again. POSSIBLY might be stator issue but VR is cheaper and easier to replace (and should be replaced anyway if it is an older part number)
