• 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.

All - as the owner of a 19' that has been struggling with fouling plugs - I'm hearing some folks are having success in curing this with replacing spark plug caps and possibly replacing or unplugging ignition switch.

I will do some research and see if the ignition switches have been superseded with an improved part number.

Question - is there an avenue for assembled ignition quality cables for the 850? I see SLP has a set - but looks more like a universal fit. Does anyone have any input and or links for quality assembled cables?

You can purchase 7mm wire. It’s copper core, I purchase 50’ at a time.
It’s common for the Polaris wires to fail.
You can cut to length, and replace your stock wire.

So which flash are you running? The 2020.5 has been great on mine. It was rich before that but still was not fouling plugs. Rich tunes are more likely to cause the fouling. If you have a sensor that is faulty and pushes the map to a rich condition it could be to blame.

It was flashed last in Feb of 2021. When they replaced the engine they also replaced the injectors as well.

I would use the stock caps. I’ve had issues with non OEM caps popping off.
Here are the specs from Magnacor.

Thank you
A bit delayed, but heres my take.

Two stroke personal watercraft use the shiny thick twisted plug wires like above, and they are garbage. They corrode from moisture (because boat) and break, and get crappy conductance, will work when cold but not hot, etc.

Sleds amplify these failure causes as boats aren't ran in zero degree temps, and engine bays stay cool with fully jacketed exhaust systems, whereas sleds start out sometime subzero, with ice everywhere, heat up kinda quickly, thermally shocking everything, and then start blowing hot steam everywhere also in powder, along with hots and colds from stopping and starting all day doing videos, chutes, whatever.

I replace worn out jetski plug wires with 8mm MSD super conductor wires and caps, and they have the little cages that hold caps onto the hex part of the spark plug. all you need for install is crimpers (or be very careful with needle nose pliers) and a razorblade, dielectric grease and some 600 grit sandpaper. I sand off the black insulation from the core before I crimp the cap on, and then coat everything in dielectric.

Summit racing has everything and its less than $50 for everything to do a twin. 4 foot of wire, 2 packs of caps, 1 set for practice crimping if you suck, etc. ez-pz
