• 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 have a chance to pick up a 2005 Crazy Mountain Extreme sled with a blown engine for $1000. From what I understand up until the new a-arm cmxs, they were all built off modified gen 2 bulkheads.
At the moment I have a pretty modified 01 RMK with an 800 triple out of an xcr. I'm wondering if anyone knows if it would be all that hard to put the triple in the cmx. I'm also wondering if anything on a cmx could be replaced with a part from a gen 2 (trailing arms, tunnel, seat ect.)

If anyone has any insight on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Call CMX and ask. I bet some parts are the same dimensions. However, if I remember correctly the bulkhead was widened for proper clearance to run a 16" wide track.
Once again, get it from the horses mouth.
