• 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.

Electric start Clutch adjsutment

I added an electric start to the wife's 2020 Axys 800 and it works well. But when I rode it today I noticed it was over revving really easily up to 8500-8600 RPM and the sled would act funny if I full pinned it, kinda like it wanted to cut out. Is this from now having the correct amount of weight in the primary?
When I installed the kit I put the old clutch weights in that I believe were 10-66 as we ride mainly 6-9k. I will need to take it off and check it out this week to be sure.
If the weights are at 10-66 is there anything else I should be looking for to solve the issue?
This was a brand new ES kit from the dealer. Sled only has 350 miles on it.

Thanks

Absolutely nothing to do with ES.

Well it does have something to do with the clutch as when you buy an ES it comes with an entirely new primary with the ringgear attached. As my post said I may have the wrong weights but as I can't get to the sled for 3-4 days I was trying to see if I was missing something.

Probably safe to assume you have the wrong weights in there.

Unless it’s a different spring?

If you put the cover on turned 60 degrees it would bind and give low rpm.

Same with a bad roller.

Did you properly clean the primary clutch? They can have machining oil etc. left on them, I cleaned mine with brake cleaner on a cloth and scuffed it up a bit with scotchbrite (like you would to remove belt residue) and the same clutching from my stock clutch worked great... Clutch ALIGNMENT was off however not enough to make it behave badly, seems the estart primary can have a different offset (.170 in my case).

I had 10-66s in there and swapped them out for 10-68s. Rpms down to a consistent 8150
Still a little room for improvement.
