• 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.


+7,200 rpm WOT top end bog/skipping

Jan 8, 2019
Nome, AK
+7,200 rpm WOT top end bog, sounds like a belt/track skip? unheard of?

Oddly at the same time the Dash cluster RPM fades after 7200 rpm, signifying odd/unstable RPM #'s while the motor just rips... causing the skip, vibrates the whole sled, and is quite aggressive to feel, right after the engine bogs at unknown rpm/wot.
Thinking it's my VES... ? Springs are corroded.

2012 motor in a 2010 chassis
AAEN pipe/muffler
v force 3r reeds
power commander v (auto tune on the way)
carbon fiber belt
sea level - nothing done to clutch weights.
haven't touched the track - will re-tune soon.
aftermarket high output stator - bad timing?
