• 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.


It Dies!!! 10-12 motor swap

Jan 8, 2019
Nome, AK
Ok... Did a 2010 (blown) motor swap to a 2012.
EVERYTHING has been replaced from fuel pump to all Electrical, all fuel elements including injectors. Has V force 3r reeds.
I knew the TPS was way off so I got it adjusted and the only difference was I can WOT to 5xxx rpm (new motor, not broken in, dont want to blow it up) and also finally switch to reverse (1/2 the time, tried twice).
Compression is a solid 130psi per cylinder.
Under load w/ throttle it gets less than 5ft before it dies.
Tossing a DET code still, and don't have the means to get it to a dealer/mechanic.
Any ideas, experience, and solutions on my issue would be greatly appreciated.
