  • 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.


Fuel/ clutching ratio

Mar 23, 2020
I’m looking at buying a Silber turbo and I wanted to be educated on the system before I talk to the guy so I don’t waste his time. It’s on a 850 patriot. I want to run pump gas half the time and a little avgas some of the time. I believe to run pump gas at my elevation (riding at about 6000 and a little bit of playing in a field around 3000) I would run the 5 pound spring and a with a little avgas I can run the 7 pound spring. Is this right? If I change the weights between the two do I need to change clutching?

Since I run run 2 gal of 110 per tank at 10,000 feet with 5lbs, I think you’ll need at least 50/50 av gas at 6000 with 5 lbs to stay off set sensor.
