• 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.

Hard pull after 30mph?

Hi, im looking for some diagnoses ideas.

After pulling carbs and cleaning because it had a starting circuit issue, My sled now seems to have ok starting acceleration then at 30-40 mph it wakes up and gives a noticeable hard pull. If I keep this speed up then it will give the same pull regardless of rpm.

thanks

Diassemble clutches and clean them. Check secondary rollers for flat spots. Check for smooth operation of clutches on the bench.

Thanks!

So I took apart and cleaned the secondary. Not to dirty. Button style clutch. Buttons were slightly worn will replace because they’re cheap. Helix looked good, slight galling, polished with rotary tool. Spring was pretty twisted and looked fatigued so definitely replacing.

Hopefully this will fix the issue.

Finally went out this morning. The cleaning and new spring was the fix. Pulls hard now right when you give it gas. Almost feels like the skis come off a bit.

Also changed helix home from#3 to #2 since I ride in the prairies.

8200 rpm and about 85ish mph

Thanks for the suggestions.:face-icon-small-hap

Nice, glad that worked for you. I've got the exact same sled, except with a 144 under it now – great sled and terrific engine! Even with the longer track mine will also pull to 80 easily, which I think is about where it runs out of gear. I could also lift the skis from a stop pretty easily with the 136 track; not as much with the 144. The 136 grabs better in dense or packed snow, but the 144 gets stuck a lot less!
