• 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.


95 XCR 600 problems

Mar 14, 2019
Hello, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with a problem I'm having with my XCR 600 triple. So this problem goes back probably 20 years and this is the reason it was parked and replaced with a different sled. Since that one finally blew up I was thinking about trying to get the triple running to ride for the rest of the season. The problem with the sled is that random cylinders will stop firing. If I shut the sled off and check spark on the cylinder that isn't firing it will have spark every time. I've tried cleaning the carbs twice in the past 3 days and that seemed to help it a little bit. I've tried new plugs, cleaned carbs, checked over the fuel pump, pulled the plugs on the bottom of the crank case to see if it was flooding and it wasn't, swapped plug wires to see if it would move cylinders and it didn't. The last thing I tried was when the middle cylinder was not firing, switched the carb from the clutch side to the middle but it confused me even more becuase then the mag side stopped firing. I was wondering if anyone had any more suggestions on what I could try because I am running out of ideas. Sorry if this post was a little confusing

Sounds like it is electrical not fuel. Check all grounds very carefully. check all wires from cdi to each coil. Possible it is a cdi. If it is a cdi I do have a used one. Peter

notorious at this age for needle/seat going out. id replace them if you haven't. maybe its flooding and when you swapped carbs around some drained out of the ones you were handling so they fired again..? just an idea.

Check your carb boots for cracks.
Have you replaced the fuel lines? Have they deteriorated?
Take a hanger and pull the line out of the fuel tank and check the end filter. Better yet pull the fuel tanks “firewall grommet” and fuel line. Check the in tank hose connection.
Make sure your vacuum line is in good shape and tight.

Agree. Especially the ground wire for coils. Brown wire.
