• 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.

Can you add reverse to an 02 RMK by changing the CDI box, CDI box wire harness, left handlebar controls and cylinder head to an 03,04 or 05 issue parts? I imagine that the speedometer that has the reverse light, could also be changed out. I noticed that the stator is exactly the same between an 02, 03, and 04. The only difference in engines between 02 and the 03 and 04, is the DET sensor in the cylinder head.

As I recall that would work. No head change needed, but oil pump would need to be from 03 or newer, the 02 doesn't pump oil in reverse as I recall.

I've done several.

Team secondary with ER helix.

Change flywheel.

Change CDI

Need small CDI harness for PERC with connections to the handlebar PERC control.

Need the different handlebar control.

You can add a light in the tach to blink and this wiring comes from the different harness on the CDI.
