• 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 Pro RMK - Check Engine light comes on near end of day & limp mode??!!

Back ground - sled has SLP pipe/can from day one and never any similar issues - 2,800 miles on sled! Last 3 days riding otw back from the hills on the groomed trail the Check Engine light in the top left corner comes on as well as the check engine light in the bottom right (has the number 1 on it). Goes in limp mode and will reset when sled is shut off and restarted but comes on again shortly. Each day sled worked flawless through the day and only happened otw back - speed was around 40-45 mph off and on. Just wondering is it fuel related? Each time was around or less than 1/4 tank gas left. Running supreme (91+) gas from same station I always use plus I always run some Lucas Octane Booster. Any ideas greatly appreciated before heading towards dealer! Thanks

Are you using the slp egt resistor? (They fail often)

An overev on the trail can give a hard det limp result.

Are you running eth mode?

Thanks for the response! Pretty sure I'm not running the slp egt resistor.
Not certain but I wouldn't have thought I was running the sled hard enough to cause an over rev - could be wrong but run like that alot before and it never happened.
Running 91 non-ethanol mode (always been in that mode).

Sorry for posting this twice LOL - would't let me remove it!

Did you check the actual code?

No it didn't occur to me at the moment - thought I could check once I got back - i didn't realize I had to check it when it was happening (I assume this is accurate?).
I was able to pull a code from my sled ( I have the the PIDD) the only code showing is P0128 Engine Temp Sensor - Temperature Too Low.

I have had an egt sensor intermittently go bad.

Replace it and it went away.

Thanks for that info! So the EGT is the Exhaust Temp Sensor correct?
Also Is the Engine Temp sensor the same as the Thermistor Sensor? When I look it up on the parts fiche it shows it as a Thermistor Sensor but when I look under that number on the list it says water temp sensor. Just trying to cover all basis?

Exhaust gas temp sensor.

Usually throws a code to match though.

Could be a short in the wiring harness.
