• 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.


2014 SBA 146” track install/alignment issue

Apr 6, 2016
Question about track alightnment on my 2014 sba 800. I’m in the process of replacing the track, sled had the (2”) was pretty beat up, decided to replace with the 146” 5.2 track. Picked up a driveshaft from a 12 pro with the 2.86 pitch, installed everything and started spinning the track by hand and would spin 3/4” revolution and get pretty tight like something was binding. Noticed the track wasn’t centered and adjusted accordingly and I have no issue with getting the rear of the track aligned. Tried multiple times and still had the same outcome. After checking through everything making sure nothing was hitting anywhere I notice the rails are not centered in the windows in the track in the front driveshaft area. The track is shifted favoring the chaincase side, but not rubbing the tunnel. Checked the measurements around the driveshaft from collar of driver to end of driveshaft on each side, (chaincase 4”) (pto 4 1/4”) and between each driver to center extro driver I have 1 13/16”. I did then check my original 2.52 pitch driveshaft measurements to compare, from end of driveshaft to collar of driver on each side im 4 1/6” and 4 1/8”. Seeing there is a difference is this resolved by taking the driveshaft out and pressing the drivers over to equal measurements on each side? Thanks
