• 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.

the other question is why does some sleds are ok and some are not with the same map.

also with boost you almost have to restart from scratch. it will be interestijg to see how the turbo vs NA 840 will run next winter.

For starting the motor your plugs need to be clean. If you have loaded up the motor before shutting down there could be excess fuel or oil on the plugs. Now if you have your sled clutched to be buzzy or ride harder the pipe gets hotter and the pipe sensor may change fueling accordingly. This will make 2 same year sleds perform differently and one may seem fat while the other just fine.

I think they don’t have a high enough resolution in the engine management software/ hardware combo.

This causes the system to be too erratic to catch all the variables that affect a 2 stroke.

Hence the reason the N/A 850 for 2022 has a completely different engine management system...........


Is there a consensus on why Polaris cannot get the mapping right on the 840? It seems like the fixes are haphazard.

Are there changes to the 2022s to address these issues?
