• 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.


2up Suspension Mods?

Oct 18, 2010
I use my sled almost solely for accessing terrain for snowboarding. My sled has the biggest track and the sweet double board rack so we usually use it for doubling up to ride lines. Running a 151 and extension from SLP, ryde fx shock in the rear, stock rear shock in the skid, torsion springs set to the stiffest setting.

I need to raise and stiffen up the rear suspension. First off I'm planning to replace both shocks with new ones and raising the rear suspension. It's the extra-10 btw

How tall can I raise the rear of the sled? I was thinking of adding 2-4" by using a riser plate similar to what SLP sells. Is there stiffer torsion springs? Possibly something off a stock touring sled or something? What about a stiffer spring for the front skid shock?
