• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.

  • 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.

Im going to be changing the reeds on my axys with a boondocker sidekick turbo. I saw a picture a while back of someone who removed the gas tank to install the turbo and thought that would be a good way to do the reeds, since pulling all the turbo parts out is a pain to get in to the reeds if I dont need to. Anybody have any insight before I start the job and waste a bunch of time doing it the wrong way.

I have a silber kit, and I replaced the rubber throttle body boot, (i had tear in mine). To do that I had to get to the reeds. I did not have to remove the tank or seat.

I removed the secondary clutch, the intake charge pipe going to the throttle bodies. That gave me enough room.

Removing the tank I was able to change my reeds and have it back together in a hour and a half. If you remove the tank be carful to not strip the carriage bolt heads that holds the tank down.

when you do.

here’s the fix.

cut the sides down so it fits in the slot.

use 1/4-20 ss acorn nuts to fasten tank and seat bracket.
