• 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"


    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.


idler wheels 700 RMK

Getting back into sledding after 20+ yrs. Purchased 2- 2000 Polaris 700 RMK's. One chassis has 3 sets of idler wheels, the other has 4 sets. Why the difference ? any thing I should be on the look out for 1800 mi and 3200 mi.
Thanks in advance..

If my memory servers, the 2000 had 2 sets of idlers plus the rear boggies. But Polaris sold/sells auxiliary idler kits and I think the rails were even drilled for additional ones up towards the front. So likely whomever owned the sled put additional ones on, probably because they rode in low snow or road trails. It wasn't uncommon for people to pull all the idlers off and just run scratchers instead.

2000 700s were good sleds. Just the normal service stuff to check, chaincase oil ands tuff like that. It isn't uncommon for "older" Polaris sleds like that to develop an oil leak in the bottom of the oil bottle. The rubber grommet that the oil outlet fitting pokes in gets hard and starts leaking. Easy fix, just be aware that if you see oil dripping that is likely the problem.
