• 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.

Anyone have a opinion what 7-8 inch riser and bar works best on Edge 2004 for mountain riding.

I have a Fly Mountain Bar now with a MMP 7inch riser,but i`m going crazy that it`s bending and moving every way,both in the upper (bar) and the lower (steering post) end.

Pictures please!!

i have a 4 inch rise on mine with stock bars and i've never noticed bending in it.i tighten the clamps every ride and make sure the post is doing ok.

i think your best bet will just be to reinforce the post as best as you can.

You must be one tall Wegian. Ole's risers is angle cut and solid with no adapter. They'll cut any length rise you want. Probably should look at a cro-mo steering post too.
I run a 5 in, which is plenty high for me at 5'9". Never noticed any bending either.

I'm ditching my riser and going with Fabcraft's 7" rise handlebars
I'm using Fly motocross aluminum bars and a 3-1/2" Rox riser. That is about 7" of rise.
It might be a good idea to upgrade your steering post if you haven't already. SLP has their heavy duty steering post for the Edge models for about 1/2 price in the new catalog.
