• 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.

I did take it out for a ride the next day with the temp setting on and it got up 125 degrees is that the normal temperature range !!!
And while riding it acted like it wanted to bog down again and did it for a few seconds and came out of it and didn't do it again

Yes 125 is normal operating range and detention is usually caused by bad fuel. Are you running fuel with or with out ethanol? Are you running the sled in the proper fuel mode with the fuel being used?

Im running 91 octane non ethanol.
Digital dash shows 91- non
I put fresh fuel in it when i brought it home right before Thanksgiving.
Do i need to run higher octane fuel in it !!!
One thing i thought of would it be wise to get a bottle of fuel injector cleaner and dump in the tank to clean the injectors !!!
Or is that a no no .

As long as it's good 91 non ethanol your fine.
I've heard of some guys using amsoil injector cleaner, JB fuel conditioner injector cleaner, seafoam or there's some for outboard motors that's supposed to work good cant remember if it was from Johnson or mercury.

Ok thanks 05rmksteve .
That's one thing i get picky on is fuel if it recommends 91 thats what i put in it .
Who knows what it had in it for fuel or how long it sat around before i bought the sled and who knows maybe the the tank had condensation in it and it worked it through the fuel system and thats why it bogged down and got hot on me .
I will get some injector cleaners and try them out

I think i figured out why it got hot and threw a detonation code and bogging down it had the wrong weights in see picture .
Those are mountain weights for 10,000 to 12,000 ft mountains.
Im lucky i didn't blow the f-ing motor up.
I put my new dalton dalton quick change clutch weights in and weighted for around home here now all i need is snow to go try it out .
