• 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.


99 Polaris 800... Need some info

Nov 17, 2017
Ok so first off this unit was purchased to be cut up and turned into a snow bike piece.

All I've been told it was a 1999 800. But I have no idea the model or features.

Tunnel says extra lite near the back. Seems to have a heat exchanger at the back and well as the front of it.

If anyone has a microfiche of the suspension that would be helpful in getting the proper parts back in place.

Has antifreeze going through the brake caliper I believe... if so that's a bit of engineering genius coming from a trucker who's never ridden before.

So any help figuring out what I have would be great thx.

There were no 800 twin engines in 99 so probably a 700 GEN II RMK.
Click on the link above, on the left hand side of the page scroll down to suspensions and then click on that. This will show you an exploded view of the rear suspension with part numbers from Polaris.

Looking at the drive unit on these sleds is their just the one set of cogs on the right side that drive the track?

Arctic cat sled I got has cogs right across the track.

Just wondering if this is just a Polaris design or if I'm missing a few parts.
