• 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.

clutch kits

Trying to get ahead of the game and order up parts for my new 850 rmk matrix slash. Looking for a clutch kit, I ride from 2k to 6k in elevation. I had a Kurts in my 800pro and loved it. Just wondering what everyone is running. Thanks ahead of time

Try the matryx forum section in January.


Some sleds will have miles on them.
Some testing of the new FI system will be done. (Changed power delivery)
Some hacks will have “clutch kits” available.

Maybe the new primary clutch will even have some tuning parts available.

Bahahahaha! So true!
Bikeman, Ssi and speedwerx are located in the flatlands. But then sell “mountain clutch kits.”
Would you buy winter clothes from a store in Florida? No.
Would you buy a mountain “clutch kit” from a flat lander? No. But I have seen guys that did. The parts are currently paperweights.
Bahahahaha!

I did realize, or think that tat would make that much of a difference on the non bost sleds. Good to know thanks

Possibly it won’t make that much difference but ride reports of the non boost sleds compared the stock matryx 850 to an slp stage 3 Axys 850 for response and power.

There's always a ridiculous amount of hype that comes with new sleds (especially polaris), new fuel systems and the like. The way I see it is throttle response may be slightly improved (present fual delivery at lower RPM's is a little off) but WOT horsepower will probably be very similar to any 850 you've ever seen and optimal clutching will more than likely be very similar from 2019 through 2022, time will tell but I for one am not worried one little bit a friends NA 2022 will leave my '19 in the dust. I feel people need to be more careful with clutch kits, I've seen some great running 850's performance completely destroyed after spending $350 to $450 on some guys hyped up clutch kit or gear kit, and many of them really think they made an improvement simply based off the amount of dollars spent until you run them into the ground run after run in varying condtions. Don't spend a dime until you've seen it on the snow leaving your present set-up in the dust.
