• 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.


94 XCR 600 Mod build

Dec 2, 2007
Had this thing out last saturday (last pic) with the guys who were all on new sleds and haven't had that much fun sledding in a long time. It was pretty sweet to see the old guys we passed on the trail smiling and giving me thumbs up on the old machine. Had an issues with fuel in the variflow lines causing the engine to act up a few times that I need to figure out but other than that it ran great.

I've had this XCR600 for a while now and I'm finally getting around to building it up some more. It runs on premixed fuel, has a shaved XLT head for better airflow, SLP triple pipes, airbox delete, holtzman variflow, simmons flexi-ski's, rail extensions to a 136, short tunnel extension and a lexan hood.

I had a cracked weld on one of the cans so since they were getting a bit rusty so I figured it was time to freshen them up since I had them apart. Also repacked them at the same time, not sure if its any quieter though. Used some acid and a wire wheel to clean up the exhaust and then repainted.

Next step is to mount the pro seat to the tank I just bought and then I'll try to tackle the 155 pro skid and track. Might change the bars out and I'm hoping to find something lighter for the front suspension. Eventually I'd like to ditch the running board coolers to have something that I might actually be able to clear a bit of snow from.
