• 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.

Looking to purchase a 9inch wheel kit for my 2019 850 SKS 146. Anyone know of any brands/stores selling these?

Thanks in advance,
Andrew.

Perfect, thanks for the reply.

I don't believe I need the offset axle because I went from an 8tooth driver to 7tooth so I need to take up the slack with the 9inch wheels.

Tom at TKI stared 9 inches were max. For the Polaris. Didn’t ask why. Just ran with it. He’s a great dude and a great source of info. I went with his wheels and axle and also converted my 19 chain drive to a belt with his kit.

I did mine mid season and have not rode it yet. Did a bunch of stuff to the sled to include clutching/chain conversion/exhaust and suspension so it will be gheard to put a finger on benefits….except it looks cool. :) During my research - I did get feedback from peeps on here and on Facebook about favorable results.

A buddy has billet aluminum axle wheels on his old Rev. Depending on snow conditions, it's constantly packing up, and therefore making the circumference of the wheel larger / tightening the track.
Anyone making aluminum wheels with rubber outer coating?

Companies used too, but there were problems with that, so they stopped.

If the alum wheels are beveled, that reduces the ice buildup.
I know my 10" Super easy/Pengilly wheels back in 2003 were beveled. Never had ice buildup.
