• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • 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.

any one ever put a '15 engine in a 13' Pro chassis?

I bought what is supposed to be a motor out of a 15 pro to put in my 13 pro after it grenaded. Got it all set in there and there are a few different electrical plugs that my chassis doesn't have anything to go to them... First time swapping an engine and I'm stumped.

Not quite the same but I just put a motor from a switchback assault 2011 into a switchback assault 2013 chassis.

I used the complete motor and chassis wiring harness from the 2011 in the 2013 chassis.

The 2013 main wiring harness was not compatible with my 2011 motor.

thanks. I've been seeing a lot of things saying that you can use the 13 harness with the 15 motor but maybe I need to get my hands on a 15 harness. Was the harness swap a pain?

If you swap out harness make sure you get all the electrical from the 15. Capacitors, voltage regulator, ect. Its easier to change out the stator and flywheel.

In my case it was easy. I had both sleds that I could look at and take pictures of before I pulled anything apart. I just pulled the complete wiring harness out as one unit from my 11 and put it in the 13 chassis. If you have not taken your 13 apart yet just make sure to take lots and lots of pics and some notes and have a factory service manual handy for any detail questions.

( Short back story. My new to me Indy Dan powered 11 SBA got caught n a garage fire a week after I brought it home. Found a complete 13 roller minus the motor and clutches for a good price. Pulled the motor, clutches and harness out of the 11 and put it all in the 13.)

Your motor harness from the 13 should be the same as what was in the 15 as far as I know. So, as muchentioned above it should be a easy swap out.

By the way you will have some plugs or connectors that don't plug in anything.

Some of the plugs are for servicing the sled and the other plugs are for options you may not have or options a different chassis might have.

They changed a few things on the 15. Different stator plugs, different voltage regulator, different injectors plug, capacitors and different tps plug.

Sounds like you have it figured out. The TPS and Fuel Injectors connectors are different. The '13 is kind of it's own year as for wiring connectors goes. From my experience, '14 and '15's interchange.
