• 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.

:LOL:This thread really does have a lot of good information and entertainment. I didn't know about the plateau honing on Nikasil cylinders, used to working on diesels where feeling the hatch with your fingernail is good! small engines are a different story. with regards to post #1326, Dan, the duramax only seemed to have the bad injectors on the early LB7 engines, a friend of mine has one, he put a set of reman injectors in, and now has 500K+ km's on it. Seems they've got the injector problem figured out. I get your point though and I'm a Cummins guy anyway lol (NOT stiring the pot here) Please keep sharing your knowlege with us!. this thread answered a lot of questions I'd been wondering about for a while with the 850. Not to get too off topic, but how is the rest of the sled holding up? any tunnel and skid or broken axle problems? A-arms?

I can't answer all the questions but do know that the 19+ tracks are clipped properly and are holding out better. The A-Arms are slightly stronger as they are shorter but still need braces on them if you want them to survive small hits. The ride is also better than my 16 and both have the upgraded piggy-back shocks. The rest of the chassis has been perfect for me.

OMG I finally got to the end of this thread 1560+ posts. Wow.


So on the 19 if they lock tight the pto bearing.... how do you replace it latter on? Sounds like an epic CF.

Anyone know if dealers are fixing any left over 19 sleds? Prior to sale?

Any idea when fixes went into production aka best month to look for?

Im debating to be honest, it would be my first sled.

Thx

the locktite releases with splitting the cases if you ever need to service it.

the past season has shown very few actual failures.
