• 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 need some help badd guys. Alright i have a 2000 rmk 700, i just put mikuni carbs on it and i went to grass drags today. the sled runs great for a stocker, other then a terrible bogg right off the line. when the sled is idleing it dies if you dont give it throttle. i turned the idle up and tried a bunch of different things. when you turn the choke on it idles a little bit better. its not the piolet jets being plugged we checked those.... i think it may be a reed problem but idk any ideas??

I don't pretend to be an expert on carborators, but you might try to drop them some more and see what you get. I just end up playing with them and noting what I do until I get it right. Good luck.:beer;

Are these TM 40 carbs you installed? There are air pilot jets on those too which work in conjunction with the pilot jets to provide proper idle and throttle response. The needle clip position comes into play as well just off idle. Everything interacts so it is just a matter of being patient and working your way through it.

Another thing to check is the belt deflection. This can cause a bog if the belt is too loose. It should be 1.25 inch. You can check this by laying a straight edge that is long enough to span both clutches on the top of the top of the belt. Push down on the belt (but not so hard as to drive the belt into the sheaves) and measure the distance between the bottom of the straight edge and the top of the belt. Adjust with the 3 adjustment bolts on the secondary clutch.

If your sled is ritch the idle will be slow if its lean it will idle way up . If its to fat in the midrange and idle is rich when you add throtleat may not be able to get air fast enough causing it to booooooog.Get your idle a little lean and work up ,dont forget your slide has controll of rich lean conditions.
