• 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.

All of that information has been pretty well hammered in the axys and 850 sections. (Same bulkhead and geometry)

Anything that doesn’t cross over is just as new to everyone here as it is to you.

Talked to a poo accessory engineer last weekend - he confirmed no poo lock n ride fuel can this year, something “they are talking about”. FYI if you were looking or wondering or planning to carry fuel on the Matryx RMK.

Since the matryx has no coolers under the rear portion ANY gas can will work.

To the OP.
Stock Gripper ski’s are great with dura pro rubbers.

A Arms need upgraded like any poo since 2016 if you don’t like ruined days. (Spares in the truck are exactly that…… in the truck)

Shocks are as always pick your favorite color and spend money.

Heat Brake Lever is already designed just waiting on production.
Handlebar Bag - Our Quick Lock will fit it, same handlebars as the AXYS. We should have a bunch of inventory in the next month.

Polaris Matryx Handlebar Bag
 
B&M Fabrications has a nice front bumper and Alternative Impact A Arms are awesome. The A arms for the Matryx RMK are the same part # for the Axys RMK with react so anything that worked the on the Axys should work on the Matryx. SLP also has light weight cans available.

please tell me more about a-arms .
Stock A arms fold like a cheap lawn chair.

B-pwr A arms out of Canada are bomber with oem style ball joints. (No redneck spindle grinding required like with Zbroz) also easy steering with no ice issues in the ball joints.

Alt impact HD are ok. (The ball joints ice up and get sticky/ stiff steering.)

Just use our Arm Candy A-Arm braces. They make the stockers strong enough to handle normal hits without bending but still allow them to fold when hitting non-movable oblects.

You can move them from sled to sled and if you actually still fold an arm you can easily find a replacement arm at any Polaris dealership. The problem with aftermarket is availability in a pinch.


Price are in Canadian dollars so for USA guys it works out to about 80% of listed.

SLP is working or has the matryx pipe for preorder i thought? The stocker is a really good pipe. low amount of turns and angles (just the 1 180* turn) big fat belly for low end and mid, and pretty decent top end for a factory made pipe.

as far as wheels CR racing canada i think had some stuff out. so does ice age.

TKI had 9” wheel kits in stock when I ordered last month.

Ice age was back ordered.

Shocks, scratchers, skis, rear wheels same as axys. Polaris Bags have been designed, but supply chain will limit availability. 7s gage made by trail tech, from what I was told from the Polaris guy at the snow show, voyager pro accessory compatible. Brake is the same as cat has been using for four years (with a small change), so that will be easy. TKI already has brake levers and master cylinder cover protector. Most exhaust companies have had sleds for a while, so that should also be quick
