• 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.

A friend towed one out from Big Sky this weekend with a locked up motor. Had 50 miles on it. Saw the video of 3 sleds linked together (2 pulling) to get it up the hill from where they were. I don't know any more details other than that.
I told Mueller that it looked like that poo keeps up just fine with his 850. He said it does on the end of a rope. I think that was Coulter Todd's 850 poo. He isn't very lucky because I think his last years axys blew up also.

It is an engine with two individual jugs and two piston rings, it is not a polaris unless it is an old big block, but don't look like it.

At 90 miles i noticed my belt slipping like it was wet, took panel off and noticed a little oil build up. Rode another 10 miles to get back to trailer with it slipping another 5 times. At trailer i pulled the panel of again and noticed lots of oil. Just got it back from dealer... Oil line to PTO bearing had come off because it didn't have clip/clamp to hold it on. Engine and bearing are fine. I would recommend checking line.

If they go down it will be in the first two hours. If you are past that then your engine is good to go.

So with a cell phone you can get a pic of the hose behind the clutch. This is one hose you should check anytime you blow a belt. I could easily see it get pulled off.

My 850 went down today. 78 miles on it. Took off from a stop mild throttle and sled shut right down (almost flew over the bars).

Pulling it over motor feels tight and it does start but sounds like crank bearings. Not good

So if they have a 1000 posts on snowest that means their 850 won't blow up or the post is legit. Give me a break. I have a buddy that blew his up at 50 miles. Who cares. It means nothing. Just means he got unlucky for the moment.
