• 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.

I would say spin it at 8300 I had one back in 97 and if memory is right I turned it at 8300 to 8400 with slp twins I would start fine tuneing by first make sure the jetting is right then start with lighter weights in primary clutch it shouldnt take much go half gram increments. I think I had 56 gram lighting weights in mine. and if that doesnt work check timeing under aload good luck

I ran a similiar '98 700 w/220's, 40mm mics, SLP heads, SLP Twins, etc. Those SLP twin pipes make their power between 8,000 - 8,200 RPM. If you spin it over 8,200 RPM you will be losing power. Also, if you're using the stock tach, you can't really trust it's accuracy. :beer;

I just pulled out my notes from my '98. Carl's Cycle porting, SLP canister style twin pipes, Himark Head, Keihin carbs. Jack's porting setup called for 8400rpm and that's where I ran mine and it pulled like a sun of a gun. As jgd said, don't trust the stock tach.

What altitude are you running at?

Maybe I misunderstood the post:rolleyes:. The 220 jugs had the more aggressive porting and were found on the 97 and some 98 700's, I thought that was what Thunder101 was talking about, my mistake. However if the porting is stock 220, then the SLP pipes are designed to run between 8,000 and 8,200 RPM. If your porting is "enhanced" (like the Carl's job) then I would defer to sled_guy. I'd rather be riding :beer;

Ive raised the exaust ports 2mm I would have to find my notes,,,,,this was my first go at porting a 2stroke. so I never took the notes like I do now. I was just looking for some info on how I should go at this.
I put this together a couple years ago and it went good but I have two other sled that I ride and work on so this one has sat for a while now. I was thinking of cutting 1" inch out of the header pipes. or less ?? I could not even start with the math for pipes but I do know that will effect were the power comes in.
I will look for my notes tonite.
my thinking is that I added 10* of exaust duration and that should have moved the power peek up rpm so Im thinking the pipes might be holding it back. ? tuned for lower rpm then my porting is ?
