• 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.

So I have a 2020 sba 850. Got about 20 miles on it if that. Noticed there was burnt oil in the belly pan. Took a pic and called the dealer. Said oh it's just the exhaust donut. Didnt seal. I was thinking theres no way a new sled should be leaking oil. So I decided to take it apart and lo and behold. Theres a pin hole in the y pipe coming off the engine. Best part is theres a 3 week wait minimum to get sled in and if they can even get the part yet. Pics are included.
weld the pinhole on the y pipe.

I got my 2020 Khaos 850 broken in this past weekend. Ran pretty good for the first 0-50ish Miles. I felt it doing it’s break in process, so I was very anxious to see what it felt like after break in. Started the next day off pretty strong until about mid day it started to bog a few times on me bad. Checked the plugs of course right away, the one side was golden brown but the other side was soaked in oil. Swapped plugs out for some fresh ones. Ran amazing after than until the later part of the day and I got a few more bogs. Heading home today and will check plugs again. Motors all stock with Indy dans clutch weights. Rpms were spot on.

Probly have to keep pushing through. How many hours above 5500 rpm you think your at? There's extra oil for 10 hours.

I hope that’s all it is. I ended the weekend with 110 miles on it. 50 to 60 of it burning trail. The rest all off trail. I’m not sure about the amount of hours above 5500rpms.

Probably just oil spray I guess . Quality control ??
Seems like they could get you one sooner as many engines have gone down , by the internet failure rate.

New 2020 RMK 850, last sled was a 2016 RMK 163 800. The 850 throttle pull is very stiff compared to the 800. Is this normal? My 13 proclimb is about the same as the 800.
Other than that...the power is great, starts great, sounds great.

Daemond your dealer sucks. Least he could do is pull the y-pipe, weld/tack that tiny hole shut then have you run it while hes waiting for the part. While you wait in the shop maybe buying more stuff from him.

First ride yesterday on the 2020 RMK 2.6 and it is DEEEPP. Hard to try and be nice to it when you need a good hand full on down hills but it ran mint. Zero issues so far. 5 more days of 3 feet of POW to go! Can tell its a little rich but still runs very good and clean.
