  • 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.

Well I did finally get out to try it again. I did put the updated BD tune in it. I wasn't to convinced that it would be in any better, but it did run real well. Bogged a couple times, but nothing like it did before. Not enough to effect anything. Snow wasn't quite as deep as I had been riding in but still and honest 2'. Was wondering if it was maybe exhaust blockage with our heavy snow, but it does have a tunnel dump so idk. Was also riding above 5000 ft where I had been riding around 4000. Still running straight av gas.
Trade that hunk of junk in for a stock 165 2.75. Then maybe you will finally be able to make it up as far as me 🤣

I suspect it's in your tune.
BD should have some fresh tunes.

I've got tune 4.04, which should be available to the public soon.

Put high boost tune 4.01 in sled rips just fine just can’t be WOT for more than a few minutes or sled retards and have to restart.

Added intercooler..... All business all day long now !
