• 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.

Anyone know what changed on the pipes from '16/17 to '18/19? Polaris part number 1262375 vs 1263038. Is it a simple thing to make them compatible, like relocating a spring hook? Or is there no reasonable way to modify one to work with the other, like a different junction with the Y pipe, or a different shape altogether?

Although I'm asking about the stock pipes, it's actually an aftermarket pipe that I want to take from a '17 and put on a '19. I contacted the manufacturer and got "no" for an answer, but they might say no even if the modification isn't that hard. If nobody here has a definitive answer, I may just try to fit the '17 to the '19 to see for myself, but even if it fits I'd be hesitant to run the sled without knowing more.

its the EGT sensor difference.
16-17 is old style

18-20 is the new larger thread.

I've heard the newer ones are better because it keeps running temp at like 110 or something... is that a change you could do to a 16-17 sled?

I'll probably just drill and tap, then maybe add a bead around the circumference for strength if it looks too thin. Plenty of purpose-built options too:
