• 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.


Just fired my sled up and took it for a short ride after rebuild...

Oct 20, 2014
So I jetted per SLP's recommendations and I just had a quick question.

My EGT guage was showing 8 on the left side and 4 on the right side. Is it normal for these twins to be unbalanced on the EGT guage? Sled rips, but just want to make sure I don't mess anything up since I just rebuild it last year and this is the first time I have been able to really ride the machine since it was rebuilt. I didn't really ride it hard or WOT, just around the block for about 10 minutes or so. Seemed around 400-600 at idle.

2001 RMK, SLP twins, ported and polished.


It feels a little sluggish down low too... I know with twins they can do that, but just wanted to make sure I don't need to switch jets up another size since one side is showing a lower EGT which I assume means it's running lean.

My sled does have staggered main jetting per SLP's recommendation. One side is 20 higher than the other.

higher EGT number is lean, lower or cold number is rich .
keep it below 1200 and you should be ok
mid throttle cruse @ 900 to 1000 deg is good .
always DBL check your plug reading ..
