• 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.

I don't see why that wouldn't "work" but personally I'd go with the Skinz heated lever. Yes, it's expensive, but so is everything in this sport. And it's clean, and plug-and-play.

I know the skinz would be better, but it's 320-330 cnd. Or 50 to make it.

I bought a Skinz heated lever for my Doo. The design of the lever is great, nice and short but has good leverage for one or two finger use but it was so HOT I couldn’t use it so I had to unplug it. I use thin gloves on the palm side and I am sure that makes a dif.

Definitely burn your hands when loading or unloading without gloves.

Anyone try the SP1 heated brake lever?

(Sorry if I’m derailing a leaver thread)

Couldn't you wire it into the factory controls or have a switch/thermostat controlling it? You would think for the price of it Skinz would include this type of set up..

To the OP. I'm sure if you done a little research you could find a thin enough 12v flexible strip heater you could mount on the lever.. Probably just a single layer of black vinyl tape to cover it. Wire it to a thermostat, and you'd be good to go.

they send it wired with a plug that fits the accessory plug for the doo. No control on that circuit. I never tried anything else. I don’t think a layer of shrink wrap would be enough. I though about wrapping it in paracord but never tried.
The adjustability of the lever is really nice and the shape and length are great too. I leave my finger on the brake all the time and that finger can get numb on cold days. Be nice if it was adjustable for temp.
