• 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.

COMPFUSION's IMPROVED MOTOR MOUNTS FOR THE 900 IQ's - 2005 AND 2006 MODELS

Its that time of the season.... 900 RMK's, Fusions, and Switchback

I am re-posting a lot of my old posts as I have been getting a lot of PM's about this stuff.

It must be getting to the time of year when people are building up their sleds for the season.

The Stock motor mounts, IMO, on the 900's are inadequate in many sleds at keeping the motor aligned under load. This causes a lot of belt heat (blown belts) and a lot of off axis side loading on the crankshaft (broken PTO stubs).

The 2006's motor mounts were firmed up a bit from the 2005's, but IMO not enough... they are still too soft and do not locate the engine under load well.

The stock mounts can tear and cause a lot of problems including loss of performance (the clutches can't work well in this state), belt eating (even with the 3211115 belt) and bad vibration.

The soft stock mounts require the torque stop to be snugged up to the motor which caused a "hammering effect" that was transmitted to the chassis and vibrated the heck out of everything.

Here is a post from the old forums.. COMPFUSION has a beautiful kit for a reasonable price...these are not mass produced parts from a big mfg. Each kit is built from quality materials (stainless, 2024 aluminum and high quality bolts)... and made to very tight tolerances.

They are pretty straigforward to install.

Compfusion's mounts Replace the factory front mounts and only require 2 additional 5/16 holes to be drilled in the factory engine-base-support (#13 in this diagram).

They bolt into this factory support.

No welding, cutting on the bulkhead or moving of your motor.

Pull your motor (#19) (and all of the related hardware to facilitate this), remove your old mounts (#14 in the diagram) and support (#13) from the motor, bolt the replacment mounts to the support, drill two additional supports and attach with the supplied Polaris factory grade additional bolts/nuts, bolt the support/mounts to the motor and re-install the motor in the chassis. Align the clutches, set your belt deflection, pull the starter and go.

These are only the front mounts... you use the facory side/rear mounts (#8 in the diagram)

To add the MH's great post I do recommend that guys replace the bolts in the end of the crossmember (#18 x 4). These are relatively small bolts (5/16") that don't seem to take well to repeated install/removal especially with power tools. Also the large washer (part #15) should not be used with the replacement mount. It is not needed and will reduce the thread grip in the case.
slabm7: An instruction sheet is included in the package and will contain some important information to follow during install.

This would be a good time to let everyone know that the kit now features a new urethane puck set for long life and increased durability for the higher HP sleds. All new kits will come with the urethane parts.

Thanks Eric. I've been quite busy and gone on business trip for over a week but I'll get yours on the way shortly.

Compfusion, I already use your mounts could you give me a price on just the new urethane components. My motor is out and I might as well update the rubber.

The new urethane puck set will cost $67.00 cdn airmail shipping included. If you have it out now would be a great time to do the change. We all know the labor to R/R the engine in a 900.
