• 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.

It's a wee bit more money than the BRP and I can go to a local BRP and NAPA store for replacement parts.

It is pricey but I prefer the aluminum housing and better flowing stat than the brp. The brp boys are swapping their stock ones out to aftermarket versions for a reason.

The BRP boys aren't swapping them out here, and we surely would see a problem in my part of the world.
I now have over 5000 miles on two sleds, sporting the BRP conversion, without a problem. One NA and one Turbo, will add it to my new '15 also.

Just a heads up, looks like powderfreaks is sending out the wrong size TEE with their kits. I am waiting on a response from them.

Is it lack of R&D or a simple supplier error? He knows what size it should be, tells me the R&D is correct and probably a supplier error. Mistakes happen, to all kinds of people/kits/products.

Please start you own thread for your preferred product, this thread is informative for the $28 upgrade. This was initiated to be a freebee site and not to promote products supplied by aftermarket companies.

WOW!???

Well I am speechless after that.

I will let you have your thread and your opinion and I will hold mine back since it upsets you.

I respect everything you post on these forums but obviously I struck a cord.

Good day.

We are now on the third page of posts about Terra alps and powderfeaks kits. I would like to keep this thread on track and informative concerning the BRP Kit. I apologize if you thought I was being disrespectful.

Okey dokey.

This a bonus mod for the Pro for cooling and steady performance. The Axys next year will come stock with a similar cooling flow for these reasons. Do it if your Pro is a keeper. But,,,I think you should stay away from some of these other set-ups personally. TRS has done the R and D to be CFI2 specific and the details may not be important to you but they are there.

First, the Terra Alps guy has a real bad rep locally for a reason (check the BBB). If you can find where he is doing business today you'll still have to get a hold of him. When you do,, try to cut the conversation short unless you enjoy listening to blah blah about how bad the rest of the aftermarket really is lol. Then you can only guess when or if he will ship. It really is easier and cheaper to go to the Doo shop and Napa. Today and in the future.
This might be a personal thing but I hate supporting people like this.
Secondly. These aluminum set-up are nice but relatively heavy. Hanging just by hoses they bounce around abit compared to the Doo one. Originally they were meant for an overheating 1000 Doo that actually deformed the plastic around the stock set-up. The Poo ECU likes to stay in a range. Too cold is just as bad as too warm. Do your home work and you might find the thermostat supplied is a bit cold for best performance in a Poo.

One opinion from happy 2 year 28 dollar fix guy.

Better??

No need to chime in geo, TRS and I can handle this thanks.

TRS- feel free to have the mods remove any/all of my posts in this thread that are not pertinent to the BRP stat.

Got the drop in kit in and did the $28 upgrade at the same time and she's running a bit warm. Running around 150 and will come down to 140 in deeper powder. Maybe a air bubble somewhere, it took around 5 quarts of coolant. This is a 800 rush and the front cooler is still being used. One end stayed on the water pump housing and the other goes to the BRP housing and I plugged the head port. Seems to run fine just warmer that I'd like. What should I check first?

Ok I just read through every post from the beginning and there is one question that I have that had been asked that had never really been answered. Where do you find an aluminum washer that's 34 mm OD and 27 mm ID. I saw longhandle or who ever said they made them but does it have to be 27 mm ID? What if it was 25mm? Or 20? Is there one that that would work in standard measurements? Like 1" id? And does it have to be aluminum? Can it be copper or stainless steel? I have all the parts but this damn washer. My local hardware stores don't have it, I've called bolt and hardware suppliers, I've looked on line, I would like to know where all you found that washer. At one time it was said here they were being made for $10, I'm thinking that's the way to go. Please can someone give me some answers?! Thanks!
