• 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.

looks great! I thought the support posts in the first one where an OEM type deal, but all the seats I was looking at didn't come with, but now i see it's custom. I guess that also speaks well on your fab work!

thanks for the write-up, sled looks great

How do you get the front of the seat to click into the tank?

My Seat Conversion

I finally got my IQ to RMK seat conversion done...well almost. The seat was off an 05 I believe. I decided to use the storage box that came with the IQ so that I would have a place to put a few tools ect. The mount was too short, so I used (2) 3/4 inch nylon cutting boards, epoxied them together, and cut them to match the bottom of the storage box, then drilled through them and mounted them under the box to the tunnel. To clean up the look I bent a piece of aluminum (long part of a drywall square) and riveted it around the base. Turned out pretty good I think. I do like the look of the OP's better with the open underside, but thought the functional storage would be useful.

do you have more pics on the iq seat what did you do to fit it against the tank?
 
How much of the gen 2 seat do you cut off. It looks like only 3 or 4 inches.
edit:
Just looked at it again, so tell me if I have this right. The section that gets cut from the gen 2 seat is the section (about 1 foot) that clips under the tank. Starting where the aluminum starts near the bottom of the seat in pictures of the OP's first post.Then it is riveted to the bottom of the IQ seat. The IQ seat actually doesn't get cut. Then the top section (around the tank)of the IQ seat gets trimmed to fit the contours of the tank. Correct?

Sorry for the slow reply. I thought I had some more pics of the underside of the seat ect., but I cant seem to find them. I'll try to get over to my shop soon and snap a few pics of it and post up for ya.

Stomper, you are correct. The main cutting is all on the Gen 2 seat. The only cutting I did on the IQ was on the sides of the front to make them fit the tank better and flow into the lines of the Gen 2 front part. I do still have a bit of a gap on the top of mine between my seat and tank (maybe about an inch) which I plan on filling using either thick foam cut and glued to the tank so the seat butts up against it, or fabricate a flap sewn to my seat fover that velcros to my tank. Havent decided yet, but rode it all last season with it as is and had no problems and LOVED the improvement of the high rise plus I like the look of custom :face-icon-small-coo
