• 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.

Okay guys got the new clutches on now I'm squealing and I think i may have some issue see if you can help me out. 2000 RMK 700

1. The drive I bought is shimmed for an 3211080 belt and I am running a stock 3211065 what is the big difference and does it matter i was told it didnt.

2. Is aligning the clutches a big deal and should I have it done? Can I do this my self with shims on the driven?

Did you try moving the cam on the secondary. Turn it so the belt rides down in the secondary a little more to see if that helps. The cam is on the side of the clutch with #s 1-5 if you didn't know already.

I checked on this site http://www.mfgsupply.com/DaycoPolUltraDriveBelts.html and there is a huge difference between the two belts. It shows the 3211065 is 2 11/64" longer. Width is the same so the shimming of the clutches will be correct. You are right in using the 3211065 belt because your clutch center to center distance is 12.5".

According to the pictures you may be a bit out of alignment. Did you push the belt over to one side before the picture? It looks like the belt is up against one side. You can adjust by moving alignment washers/spacers on the secondary. Whatever ones you take from behind the secondary you put on the front under the bolt or vice versa. The clutch offset should be 5/8". The other thing to check is the belt deflection. It should be 1.25" when you push down on the midpoint between the two clutches. Rotate the cam on the secondary clockwise towards #5 to give more deflection. If that doesn't work you may have to install another spacer in between the secondary sheaves.

Looks like you have some pretty excessive side clearance on your primary. I think .020" is the max you want. This will help with low end bog too. I just adjusted mine the other day. Not hard but you have to have the special tools for it:( I would agree on loosening up the secondary too. Move it up to #4 and see how the deflection and squeal are.
