• 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.

Sled runs very very strong with the wossner durability kit. I love it, brought my rpms back up to around 8200 WOT. After 400 miles it started throwing exhaust valve code so I changed relays better idle but exhaust valves still not working right.

Sled just got the digital wrench today I'm gonna take it for a rip after work and if all is good, I can vouch for the wossner durability kit.

If you want to avoid my VES issue I suggest going to get a little digital wrenching done at the dealer to save yourself a heart attack when/if that red engine light shows up

Let ya know tonight

What did dealer do? Friend of mine is part owner/wrench at local dealer, I am sure he could hook me up with whatever you had to do. Was it related to the durability kit or just random sled issue?

Well it went in for an actuator relearn basically an exhaust valve relearn I guess it just reprograms or resets itself or whatever. They ended up doing a few other things I was told, I haven't been home to get the full details yet.

I think it was because with the increased volume in the crankcase from the durability kit eventually the computer didn't know what to do with the exhaust valves. Something along those lines. Honestly you can just ride it till it throws a code IF it throws a code. You can ride it home with disfunctioning exhaust valves it won't hurt it

Welp.... threw exhaust valve code before I could get a mile down the trail.

I'll be testing the valve cable travel and then pulling exhaust valves for inspection this weekend sometime.... sigh....

How did the Wossner durability kit work for you? I just installed same setup in a 2016 and haven't rode it yet. Lots of guys saying I shouldn't have. Pros, Cons you have found?

Rode the sled with Wossner durability kit and SLP stage 2 kit installed on 163 Axys and it pulls very hard, holds 8100 all the time. Only issue which might be break-in related as it seems to be getting better as I ride it more is a low idle (1400-1600). Reverse works fine and I might tweak TPS and throttle setscrew but otherwise it runs perfect. Bought the sled blown up with bad PTO side piston and only 880 miles. Part of reason for durability kit decision. No idea how it idled before.

Your idle should clean up with break in. My idle was low as well, after about 300 miles and a couple new relays my idle cleaned right up 1750-1800rpms at cold start
