• 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.

2017 Polaris 600 RMK Axys stage 3 kit

I have been out of snowmobiling for 15 plus years now. Thinking of getting back into it since I now have a 14 year old granddaughter that has started riding. I am looking at a, as mentioned above, sled with low miles. I have looked at both SLP’s, new and old, catalogs for information on a stage three kit with no luck. Can anyone/someone help me out? I am looking for a single pipe and muffler, billet heads heads and clutching information. Any and all info will help me out considerably. Thank you for your time. Wax

Carl’s cycle 660 kit would probably be a better value anyways........

Polaris900RMK: That is a good question. I think it would be better for my granddaughter in a couple of years. I’m sure it will be lighter for me to get unstuck if needed.
I could not find any info at Carl’s. I emailed for info and have not heard back.

600 and 800 weight is the same FYI.

Best is to call carl’s.

Talk to Jack Struthers
 
He’s correct. The weight is the same. I have had both and the 600 rides and feels lighter though. I think the 600s are great sleds. But once you dump that money into a 600 it’s cheaper to get an 800. A 660 might be a bit much for a younger rider, but it all depends on skill and confidence level too.

I will say if you are commited to a 600 a 660 would be a blast and it’s rare it can’t go places an 800 would go.

I’m really not committed to either one at this point. Saw a good deal on a 600 close to me. Hell, my last sled was a 2002 Vertical Edge with twin pipes on it. It ran good. If and when I get more serious I will look at all the options available. You all make a good point about the 800 though. Definitely more 800‘s out there. So that being said, what track length seems to be the best for riding meadows and trees? Just curious as to what seems to work the best.
