• 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.

Are you or your wife going to notice 20 lbs? Specifically your wife, you did say it’s her sled.

I don’t think the average rider would notice 20 lbs. I’ll be honest and I doubt I’ll even notice 10-15 lbs!

This whole weight savings BS was started by Burandt and he’s shaving ounces and claims he notices every ounce saved, I’m calling BS! It’s all a business approach.

Yes, the sleds have come a long way for weight savings since the trailing arm days which is good. If one is questioning an additional 20 lbs for ES and a 7S LUXURY, then it must be tough to question first world problems.

I’m not calling out the OP, I’m calling out the entire snowmobile world!

You might as well come out and say you are just Whining 😂😂😂

The anti gravity works better first thing in the morning. That is the only time i had issues with the wps.
I just wanted to chime in and say I've used Anti-Gravity batteries for years and they have been excellent, I'll definitely be putting on in my sled! No I haven't used them in sub zero temps but I have them in two Ducati's and my Canam X3 side by side.

The Ducati's will start up just fine after sitting for 8 months and with NO maintenance/charging/battery tenders etc (if I put fresh fuel in them). And I just had the SXS in Utah with night temps below freezing and she'd start right up in the morning.
