• 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.

Anybody take the Matryx hood off one of the demo's? Did the hood assembly with the new led blade headlight weigh less than the AXYS hood assembly, and/or thoughts on replacing with Skinz Helium when they become available?

I was able to disassemble a Khaos slash boost in the dealer shop.

The hood, gauge and storage compartment assembly is heavier than an axys hood assembly………

Estimate a pound or two…..

I popped one off the boost demo we had to install a data logger for Polaris. It feel like its double the weight of the Axys hood. Im sure its not double but I was surprised at how heavy it was.

Wouldn't mind seeing something that incorporates a little less storage and doesn't stick up as much for the models with smaller gauge. My sled spends a decent amount of time up side down and interested to see how long it takes to punch that storage lid in.

THe first thing We talked about when getting hands on a new matryx and stripping panels was how nice a light simple vac formed hood would work. lay the gauge down more.

While the OEM setup is super function is definately complex and the mega trunk does contribute to a large portion of what you see as the sleds "size". I'd probably run a stock hood for early season until the days are long but a skinz helium style hood would do VERY well on the new sleds. Especially how small the tunnel and tank already look the mini body would make them wild.

Also really cool that the air intake continues to be not part of the hood so you really only would mess with your light and storage capacity.

I will say that the cmx (early skinz)panels I have... quality and feel wise...are what the skinz helium hoods SHOULD be like. Light is right but most of the helium plastic'd sleds I see look ... "funky" to be nice.

We all want function, but I want it to look good or even better if possible. Obviously this is subjective. I hate black wheels and some love them
