• 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.


Let's see the list of parts you'll be adding to your new sled!

Snowchecking an 850 Slash ES and these are the parts I am putting on the first day:

SLP Picniker can and muff pot (if available - come on SLP!)
Lightweight battery kit _ Bikeman or CV Customs
Durapro ski rubbers
Woody's hard bars ( lots of rocks in our area - hoping these prevent at least one bent A-arm)
Duraflex Ice scratchers
Pro RMK handlebar bag
RMK Essentials tunnel bag
several decals!
waiting to see what the new brake lever looks like - love my TKI on my Axys so we'll see on that one

This is what I've come up with so far - really not alot as I look at it!

What are you adding/subtracting?

without question a clutch kit
potentially gearing down like my current Freeride but not sure yet for the new turbo Freeride
rpm composites brake/chaincase/cooler protectors from my current sled
skidoo mountain grips-don't know why they don't come with these as they're far superior to the stock grips
glove box for the lightweight hood
tki brake lever from current sled
skidoo tunnel mount scratchers-these perform amazingly well

Lol at you guys...

This is a mod sled (pictured)

My slash will be paid for in very hard earned dollars before I pick it up.

First thing I'm going to do is wreck the f out of it then worry about mods. Ya know? Besides track screws, decals, Swiss cheesing plastics. Carbon bars throttle and pry do an inconel strait pipe or as I'd call it "turbo pedistal"

2ok off the batt you can bet imma bitch on here if it's a pile. P.s. Polaris you can buy me. I could be swayed. Lol

P.s. edit. Pry do some alternative impact a arms as I want an actual assault. So 22 kbs 155 skid and front shocks. A arms. Ight also see what cmx thinks of the sled if they didn't order one.. lol pretty sure they are butt hurt at polaris and hey...#metoo sware to God and all that is Holly that if polaris didn't come out with this sled in that color scheme when they did? I'd be a lot deeper in manufacturing sleds for sale. Anyone want stock 22 suspension parts? ? Txt 0067 at the 224 in montucky. If we make a deal, you get parts un-installed

But there's a reason it's my first new sled since 2011. I'm sure clutching will need played with cause most you guys aren't 220lbs.

As would be expected, this also opens up a lot more opertunities for people good at perfecting things for individuals.
