• 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.


2012 800 PRO RMK Stalling Issues

I have a 2012 800 pro rmk thats keeps stalling. Prepped it for the first ride of the year to the mountains. Tested it out here at home everything seemed fiNE. Loaded up and headed to the mountains. About 5 Km up the trail it shut down just like I turned off the key. Pulled the rope and started again continued on up the trail, only to have this happen several more times. Seemed everytime it would stall, I would have to wait longer before I could restart it and it would run for a shorter length of time. Changed out plugs on the trail twice to new plugs. Adjusted the throttle free play. Disconnected the tether. Checked many other connections. Non of which made it better. When it did start you could give it throttle and let it idle again then it would shut down. Ended up towing it back down and pushing it I to the trailer. The next day we worked on it in the trailer. First we started it. Fired up on the second pull. Ran for a good while before it died. Could vary the throttle position no problem. I have a spare ecu, coils, VR swapped them out and still the same problem. Disconnected the connection to the tail light.still the same. Disconnected the TSS, no difference. The fuel pump was changed out a couple of years ago.
Think maybe the stator?
The sled is a turbo. The builders of the turbo kit came by to assist. Disconnected their equipment and still no different. It also has the headlight deleted and a rigid d series light on its own switch.
