• 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.

I think revalving any shock to your weight and riding style and what you are looking to do with them makes sense. You can always have it put back or changed if you don’t like the results

But you're probably better off riding them first, messing deliberately with the clickers and preload, before deciding you need a revalve/respring. At least that way you can ask for something specific. Too many guys spend good money on random suspension work that might not have even been needed in the first place.

Another thing to consider, if rider weight is over that 220, a rear track shock spring change, would be another thing to try. It's always nice to do little things or one thing at time if possible, to really see the benefit or drawback.

What is the cost of a RTS spring for the 220# rider?

If I remember correctly the stock Polaris 210# spring (clicker shock) is around 90.00????

The Khaos comes with the 180# and I know several guys that were looking to change it to the 210# or have done it. There is a thread on here that has the part numbers listed.

Im 200 lbs. Ive heard the rmk spring tames it down a little and is a little stiffer? I know on my 16, i bought the sled and the shocks were back off within a month, they were not good, and a carls revalve with fox internals did wonders. Ill have to ride it some and see how it goes

What length track??? As far as spring wise, I would think that a 155 you could end up going either way but on a longer 163 or 165 you might be okay???

Its a 155, im going to ride it and see how it does, just came off a elevated alpha 154, it was a fun wheelie machine so i might enjoy something in between that and my pro.

The rear track shock low speed compression adjustment is your wheelie control. Should be fine N/A.

There is also a 190# spring.
Be careful with the 210# spring. It will get crazy stiff fast with preload adjustments.
Go slow, half turn at a time until you find your sweet spot. Start with 10.875” between shock spring keepers before suspension install.
