• 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.

2020 Patriot with SLP Twins, sled RIPS

Put a needle bearing in the clutch. Only change. No more pop from the engine in and out of throttle. Throttle response is fantastic. The mid-range feels really strong now. I talked to SLP about clutching and I am going to try the SLP magnum force weights. I have the new BooneDocker weights in it now. It is running fantastic just want to try SLPs recommended set up.
I just put the Mag force in my 850 pro they really do work awesome and my sled performs and dose everything they claimed it would be. I just ordered the exact same setup for my sons 850 😁👍

Got the SLP weights in. Super easy install and easy to tune with the set screws. Sled really likes to rev, adjusting the weights to get 8600-8700 rpm. The difference from 8350-8600 plus is dramatic. Sled feels way stronger than stock from low thru mid-range and The sled pulls hard right thru max revs, from 8000-8600 it feels way stronger than a stocker. I’m 250lbs, 275 with my gear on and another 20 on my tunnel. That’s a full load for sure And I love the extra power, really gets me around better than a stocker.
Sled does have a few quirks. When it’s hot I have to crack the throttle a little bit to get it to start on the first pull most of the time. In 3’ plus of light snow or 2ish of heavy snow the sled gets choked off by the exhaust, if I give it just a quick flick to the left to clear the exhaust it clears right out or on right side side hills I shift my weight back to get the nose higher and the exhaust out of the snow. The one annoying and potentially dangerous thing is the sled will bog bad, to the point of almost dying if I run it full throttle hard for 60-90 seconds then feather out of the throttle. When I come back on it’ll bog badly once or twice and I’ve been caught in steep sidehilling a couple times and got stuck a couple times too.

That could be a backshifting issue.

Build some heat, then it doesn’t downshift enough when you let off.

This was different than before. Maybe 10-60 seconds after a very hard pull. I will talk to Tony too, he is really we regarded on this site for clutching. I ”think” it is related to pipe heat tho. Those pipes cool off so fast, never seen pipes get cool enough to actually touch like these.
Also, on some of the longer full throttle pulls the engine protection features of the Poo engine mgmt seem to kick in, which is great, but there are times when I needed it all and I had to turn out or change lines. But those are the torture test pulls only.

At idle and up through 6500rpm is just a little louder than stock. Ride past your buddies at 8700 rpm skis in the air on the right side and they will pelt you with rocks and garbage tho. I hate loud sleds too and was a little worried about this one but I’m fine with it.
