  • 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.

Clutching with gear down?

I installed a Kurt's gear down kit on my axys 800 rmk with silber turbo running 5# boost. I also went from 155 to 163. I'm running indy specialty turbo clutch kit. I was wondering if the gear down is going to affect the clutching? Any one running similar setup or have experience adding the gear down?

You usually don't have to change clutching for gear changes unless its a drastic change.

i just picked up pro ride gears 21/44, compared to axys 22/43, and will be gearing my axys down. Silber turbo @ 7lbs. full indy specialty turbo clutching. I have not installed gearing yet. but was running 72.9 g before, Will leave it at that. but if I wasn't gonna do the gear down I was thinking about pulling 1 more gram out to pick up a few more top end Rpms. I will report back next season and let you know. Let us know what you find. Thanks

Usually with the small change from the axys to the pro ride gears or Kurt’s (original ratio) it doesn’t affect rom enough to change. Most people aren’t running enough rpm on their axys turbo anyway, so it may help you. Your track change may affect it though depending on the track and drivers you used
