• 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.


2015 Axys Fuel Pump Prime issue

Feb 23, 2021
Having a no start issue on a 15 Rush 800. Will not start by pulling or electric start, but will fire up and run and continue to run fine if you put fuel into the cylinders. You can even ride it for an hour if you do it that way. Took it to the dealer and they said it was a bad fuel pump (Fuel pressure tested 30psi, said it should be 60), but it seems to run great even on top end. Replaced the pump anyways and the same problem is happening. Will only start when fuel is added to the cylinder. What gives the fuel pump power/ what tells it to prime when you pull it when the sled is off? Would also like to add we tested the capacitors and they seemed to test good
I don't know if they have to do with the FP, but I would replace all 3 relays with the Panasonic ones from Mouser as a first step. They can be intermittently faulty. I think the one inside the bag near the PTO is for the fuel pump. Don't quote me on that though. When they replaced the pump, did they also do the regulator? It is usually one whole package, but some people just replace the pump itself. What happens if you hold the throttle open when trying to start it?
