• 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.

hey I was just wondering what might be happening with my secondary clutch. It has play on the shaft. Bought it 2nd hand from the dealer and has 400 miles on it. I took one of the 2 small washers out behind the secondary bolt. Has anyone else done this or is my secondary sticking?

😂 Sorry I just watched the video Tony had on about the.030 of float. It went back in. Thanks for the reply though. Also have a different smell coming from the sled. I don't know if it's just the VES extreme oil or what. I went for a quick 2 mile rip and it never overheated but it smelt like it was going to melt in my driveway after.

What sheetmetalfab said, put it back in there it's supposed to float on the shaft. I would recommend asking before changing stuff if your not sure, that is a good way to cost yourself a bunch of money.

Yup totally agree. I removed it just to see the fit difference. Seemed odd to me having some play, but if that's the way they are that's great. Thanks

If it has been sitting all summer it's hard to say what is smelling, most likely something in or on the exhaust pipe or can. I would ride it again and see if the smell goes away or try and identify where it is originating.

Ya it was strange. Wasn't the belt or electrical smell. Just wasn't sure. My first ride with it. Could be the exhaust like your saying.
