• 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.

Brake Caliper Options?

Bought an '02 with a custom tunnel and it doesn't run the coolant lines to cool the brake caliper. What are the options out there to run a different set up? Thanks!

Not sure what you are asking. What kind of coolers does this chassis have? Tubes down the runnig boards? U cooler? XC style tunnel coolers? Does it have a front cross over? Rear cross over or are you asking if you have an option to add the cooler back to the brake?

The cooler now runs down the center of the tunnel and doesn't have coolant through the runningboard edges. I'd like to get rid of the factory caliper setup where the coolant lines hook-up as I wont be running the lines there again. I see that there is a wilwood caliper that would work. Thanks, again!

Just run it without the coolant lines hooked up. It won't hurt anything. Never really understood why Polaris ran hot water out of the motor into the break any way.

You can unbolt the coolant cover off the top of the caliper as well and get rid of that.

been awhile for brakes, but if i remember correctly the rotor from a (somebody help me out here) pol 440 race sled? or similar is factory drilled and slotted and cheaper than a stock replacment! seems like it was 20 bucks but like i said its been awhile and i hope im not passing bad info. but definetly worth looking into.

i was kinda wondering why it did that? i can just bypass it?
I don't preheat my brakes. :)

Yes, you can just bypass it.

The theory originally was that the newer brake pads require some heat to work right. That never seems to be an issue for me.

The other thought was that by keeping them warm they don't build water/ice.

I don't have a problem with that either.
