• 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.

I did the same thing! Bought the Napa harness and then purchased the connector to mate with the sled harness. Works great no issues!

That would be a solid factory fix. I cut and spliced the 2 together. This particular Napa connector has heavier 14ga wire also. So if you found the yellow plug for other end that would be a perfect jumper wire fix. The heavier wire and spring terminals should work well.

This is the same connector as NAPA but from Amazon and much cheaper!

Standard Motor Products S-1024 Engine/Emission System Electrical Connector


yeah man thats it. I paid $39 at Napa. If someone can find the yellow plug on Amazon or Napa thats a solid fix. 2 parts connect them then plug and play.

Here is where I purchased the complete connector that mates with the chassis harness.

I have found some of the sled type connectors from Corsa. They have a large selection of connectors, pins, crimp tools, and wire. They may have the type that you guys are trying to replace/repair.

The new connector is the right fix. The new Polaris part is like glueing on a band-aide. Stupid!

The new connector I posted above has been working great. 200 miles on it now.

What is super annoying is Polaris glueing together the parts they already have instead of simply buying and providing customers a legit connector that works. So now on Rev 4 they wasted a sensor AND a pig tail connector glueing them together..

But it didn’t cost them anything since they already have a huge stock of the junk connectors.

So.. glue them up Bob and send them out for a fix! Try #4..

And this quick fix is not risking a massive backorder waiting for new connectors, from ex China.. And then field testing the new part. I would rather take this fix than waiting for the snow to melt..

Season is to short already!
