• 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.

Not wanting to be captain obvious here, just trying to help. Timing-wise, many peeps interested in a "new" Khaos are going to wait until the 2021's are intro'ed in a few weeks to gauge what they may be missing. There are other dealers in the west still stuck and stung with snocheck backout 2020 850 3" RMKs sitting on the floor, lots of 800 Khaos and all poo is offering right now is a 3 year warranty and $300 gift card if financed. This runs through end of Feb. None of them are going to get MSRP - if they could get it they would have sold them already. To better address your Q, going out on a limb - something like a 20% deduct from sled MSRP, and 50% off mod MSRP might get some interest or marketability with three seasons left on the warranty if you want to move fast. Your mods are top shelf, gotta get someone who wants a 163 Khaos with that track and willing to take on some non-warranty stuff they didn't install. Just trying to help, and no one has thrown ideas out in the forum, yet. Maybe you have some private messages with better insight. If poo offers nothing big in 2021 it may move fast or you may do better. Best wishes to you and your wife - many of us have been there, and have great compassion and respect for your circumstances. Thanks again for all you share and do here for us.
Thanks Reg2view,
I build a new sled every year but Ive never sold one so new and my mind is on other things right now. So yes, I would obviously discount the sled and the parts. If someone was worrying about warranty items I could swap the stock parts if they needed. SW is a good community and Ive always enjoyed meeting others on here out on my travels and shows etc. Someone will end up with a sweet sled! I just got back from CO about a week ago and this sled rips!!

Looks like its sold to a fellow Snowest'er. Now to figure out how to get it to Washinton state.
This has been an awesome sled and a fun build. I see Matt Entz is running the same pipe and track set up and loving it. Hope all of your are enjoying the snow. Thanks for your support ?
