• 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.


98 Xc 600 clutching

Jan 2, 2016
I am in the process of putting SLP pipes on my 98 600 twin. Going to run 10-60 primary weights, erlandson yellow primary spring, currently just have a stock helix but i plan to get a 40-48. What is stock on these? I have a bunch of old erlandson secondary springs around from back in our XLT days. some are even brand new. I have a yellow and an orange laying on the shelf here. What am i best off to run? Or should i just buck up and buy a new spring. Don't want to buy if i have something i can use sitting here.

I have one of these, I Drag Race it. In stock Class.

How do you ride --- Trails

Need to know more about the springs

erlandson yellow primary spring ?

Beginning Pressure ? 140-150-160 ?

Ending Pressure 290 310 320 ?

40-48 in a P85 secondary is a rather odd Helix.

Usually the numbers are the other way

Like an R8 50 -34

What Type / Length Track ?

What are your Gears

Here is my XC

I do pretty well.

Out West we only race about 450 feet.

She runs about 65 mph in 450 feet.
Very quick the first 100 feet.

Will run with most all 600 / 700 stock and improved.

Still tuning it --
