• 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've read in the past where a lighter than the stock 210 lb/in spring was installed on the Axys rear track shock. I cannot seem to find mention of it anywhere at this point. I will be installing a set of WE monotube (Axys) shocks on an RMK Evo in the near future but don't want or need the 210lb spring for my kids.

Neither a call to my dealer or Polaris customer service was any help.

Any insights, part numbers or advice?
will a Khaos rear track shock spring work on the monotube?

thx

Khaos spring will work

The stock evo spring should work also.

Trying to get the suspension set for my wife who is 130# with gear has been a HUGE problem. Finally called Carl's Cycle Sales in Boise, ID and they have a dedicated suspension service department that can re-valve the WER shocks and replace the springs to match the riders weight. The price quoted was $500 to $600 depending on options. Will be sending all four shocks in this week.

Been looking into getting an EVO RMK for my kid. In stock form they sit low to the ground. Polaris makes an evolution kit with longer shocks along with other parts to increase power to make them into a true RMK. Long story short there are probably two different length EVO springs the stock ones and the upgrade kit ones. Haven't researched this out yet but will figure it out this fall. I was planning on using take-off shocks from a Pro or Axys instead of buying the evolution kit shocks but didn't think about the spring rate. Curious as to what you find out so I can set my kids EVO up with lighter weight springs.

that’s my assumption as well. Both 150 lb/in, so one must be longer...
I’ll probably buy that spring and see for myself but it will need to be a summer project at this point.
