• 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.


2019 850 MBRP Quiet can mounted on '17 800 assault 144

Apr 7, 2021
Just thought I would throw it out there for knowledge sake that I successfully installed a 2019 MBRP stainless Quiet series 850 muffler on my '17 Assault 800 144. I had to swap out the chassis stiffener/muffler mount for the 850 unit, bit it fit like a glove. After that, the can slipped right into place and the tuned pipe mated up perfectly as well. The spring tabs at the muffler to tuned pipe junction are positioned a bit differently on the can, but I used two nails and bent up some spring extenders and was able to hook them up just fine. I know this muffler isn't "tuned" to the 800, but I have no doubt that it will work fine.
