• 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.


2011 RMK 800 no power to fuel pump what supplies power to the capacitor?

Apr 25, 2019
2011 800 RMK, it's stalled on me a couple times, but started right back up, so no issue. Then it stalled and didn't want to start for a few minutes. Then finally it stalled and even after letting it sit, would only fire real briefly, then die.

Checked spark, it's good. If I put a fuel oil mix in, starts, but dies when the fuel runs out.

So I checked the fuel pump. Unhooked the line, pull the engine over, and nothing comes out. If I plug 12 v into it directly, fuel comes out of the line.

So I after doing some reading, I checked the capacitor. Charged it up for ten seconds, seemed to hold a charge decent, so I plugged it back in, and the fuel pump instantly fired up with what was left for power in it.

So now I'm kind of lost where to check next. my thinking is the capacitor is not getting adequate power, leading to the fuel pump not getting power, but I don't know how to check that.

In my reading, I also used a different relay that I had, as someone suggested that.

So any advice on where to look next would be great, thanks.
