• 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.

2013 SBA / Relocating the controls to the left side handlebar.

This sled is new to me and I absolutely love almost everything about it.

The power is wonderful, it handles great and that phantom brake is amazing.

The one thing I cannot stand is location of the controls on the center console. I do A LOT of night time trail riding here in Michigan and being able to easily dim the headlights to oncoming traffic or as trail conditions require is a necessity for me.

Taking my hands off the bars on bumpy, twisty, icy trails just to adjust the ights up or down is not a good option.

With that being said what have others found as possible upgrades to relocate the controls from the center console up to the left hand bars where I feel they should be?

Is there another Pro-Ride model in the lineup that has the phantom brake and the left hand controls?

Are any of the Axis controls backwards compatible to the pro ride chassis?

TIA for any thoughts or ideas.

Thank you for the reply. The research I have done so far shows the dragon RMK to have two different brake systems with two different control setups. The Hayes brake has a controls up on the bars, and the dragon brake has a controls down on the council similar to my SBA.

Imo, going back to a hayes braking system is a huge downgrade. Not something I'm willing to do.
