• 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.


Handelbar riser for 99 RMK 700

Jan 3, 2015
Hey guys new member here, love the site and all of the info available from you guys. Does anyone know how tall of a handlebar riser I can put on my sled before I need to buy new cables. I'm not looking to go too crazy with the extension, just as much as possible for a little more comfortable ride. Sled is a 1999 RMK 700. Thanks

I think a 2" is about it without buying cables and splicing extra length into electrical. If you do go higher without extending cables make sure the throttle cable doesn't get tightened when you turn the handlebars all the way to one side. It can give you some unexpected power when you don't want it. :face-icon-small-sho

Your going to notice that the steering post is going to flex if you don't reinforce it. Slp sells a upper bushing. Help my sled out a bunch. Also you might have to extend the throttle cable. It'll be close with 3 inch. The brake line can be gently bent back to make work. Risers make a world of difference.
