  • 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.

Any reviews on these? Just ride 3 days in Revy with over the hood snow and constantly had issues with the stock intake vents choking out the sled.

My experience has been they stick up a lot further then they should. This means every branch that slides over your hood hits them. I have one that is fairly bent up ( I have taken both off a few times to try and bend back to original shape) as they don't take much to bench and on both vents the frog skin that covers them is ripping off from branches sliding over them. They work awesome, i can't complain about that. However if they could build a set that had a lower profile and didn't get banged up from sticking out so far it would be much better in my opinion. I have about three hundred miles on and I need a new set. They work but your better not bump them on anything or they will crumple like nothing.

They definitely work.

Not super strong for sure.

I left my stock intakes (and fire and ice intakes) intact underneath.

They work really well on the super deep days. No wiping intakes. Well worth the money.

I would also use something to seal them to the body when you install. They fit pretty tight in stock form but any small gaps and you’ll get snow dust through the gaps and freezing over your stock intake vents on the super deep days.

On those days, remove the stock vents.
Or leave them out.
