• 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.


Air in coolant when warmed up 2015 pro rnk 800 turbo

Dec 5, 2018
This is my first post hello everyone. I appreciate any help I can receive here.

Here is the issue.
2015 My Polaris pro 800 163 turbo

Air is bubbling in coolant tank only when sled is heated up to 120 the point on the thermostat opening.
If you go to open the coolant with the sled cold air rushes out and the coolant bubbles.

Now I have checked all the hoses and clamps could this be a bad radiator cap ? I don't think it's a bad gasket or o ring as it only bubbles when thermostat opens and high rev. Not all the time.

What can cause air to lock into the reservoir?

I have ordered a new cap but I'm super confused on this one.:juggle:

Maybe but have you tried cracking the bleeder screw on top of the Thermostat housing?

Start sled cold, Crack the bleeder screw (5/16"/8mm (6) point socket on a long 1/4" drive extension) with the front of the sled elevated some. Close when you get no air/full coolant to come out. Probably get some air.

Wait for engine to warm while maintaining roughly a 1/2 coolant reservoir. Leave cap off during this.

Wait for engine to warm up and thermostat to open (usually 128 degrees), then crack bleeder again. You want to see no air and steady stream of coolant. Once you have no air/full coolant, close bleeder, top off coolant and reinstall cap.
