• 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.

I know there used to be a lot of guys running these on here, I’m looking for a piston to take measurements off of, I know Carl’s reccomends a top end every 1,500 miles so I’m hoping someone has one laying around. Pm or post below if you can help out. Thanks in advance

I still run one. I might have a piston kicking around. You dont need to do pistons every 1500, many go much longer. Pistons are still available from the crankshop.

I realize you don’t have to rebuild them every 1,500, it’s just what Carl’s reccomends, I found the pistons new on CrankShop but they’re $215 a piece, right now I’m just looking to measure them, if they’ll work for what I need I’ll for sure by new ones but I’d rather confirm they’ll work before dropping that much on new.
