• 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.

Dealer called said sled was in , wanted to know if I wanted clutching changed, said they come from factory set at 7 to 9000 ft.
My 17 800 pro came set at 6 to 8000ft which works really good for the riding in my area. We ride from 1500ft to 7000ft with most
of it being in the 4 to 6000 range.
Dose any know if the stock setting on the 850 really comes set at 7 to 9000ft ?

Yes they come with 68g = 7-9000' .
70g= 5-7000'
72g= 3-5000'
Just buy the weights and change them your self, it's like $100 for the set.

Thanks for the reply.
Just thought it sounded a bit odd , My dealer said they would change them if I want for the cost of the weights, I would rather do it my self. Thinking the 5-7000ft might be better for here.
On all my past 800, the factory setting has seemed to work fine for this area, was just thinking the 7 -9000ft seemed a bit high.
Do you know what people found with their 19, 850 ?

Clutch for 8100rpm. It’s putting out 167hp and 108ft/lbs of torque there. That’s very nice.

Depends on your snow, you might be able to pull more weight then what polaris recommends. I run 72g @4000' in deep heavy snow 8100-8200 rpm. when i go out of town to 6000' in lighter easy snow, I leave the same clutching and I still get 8100-8200 rpm. In the spring I run 74g at 4000' 8100-8200 rpm.
