• 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.

What special tools are needed for this job of changing the mounts? I was not aware of any and I'm getting ready to change mine. Thanks YB
I think he was referring to a clutch puller.
Thanks @Wood!

Yes a Polaris clutch puller and a Polaris clutch alignment tool (good idea to check clutch alignment if you pull one off).

I'd highly recommend them if you plan on owning a Polaris for a while.


However, @TimG changed his out without pulling the primary clutch, eliminating the need for BOTH tools. Thanks for letting us in on this sweet little trick!

Yes the Primary puller- Generally everyone should have this- there are cheapo one's out there so be aware.
There is a post on here of a member that changed his mounts with the primary still on- so it's do-able/ but way easier with the primary out of the way- and no cross threading of the hex going back in. Dunno if it's talked about before But I put a dab of blue locktite going back in on the bolts- and 25/ft bls ( isn't much)- could not find the spec's.

Never had one come back with a the bolt backing out- and I have done about 15 sleds now... FWIW

Sage, Did you see that there is Stroker Customs in Steamboat (Oak Creek) is making mounts out of different durometer material with good success so far. Next time I go over there Skiing I will stop and make face to face with them and pick up a set of mounts. I have contact info if you want it.

Are they the actual engine mounts? Or the auxiliary (factory bandaid) snubbers? If they are the snubbers? Are they actually making them? Or are they selling PRO Ride ones at nearly twice the MSRP? From the photo posted in one of these AXYS motor mount threads, one would swear they are the OEM PRO Ride ones. But I’ve been wrong once or twice. Thanks in Advance!

does the primary need to be pulled to replace the front PTO side mount?
It appears the only way to do it is to pull the clutch. I would prefer not to do this if possible

thanks

You can use the Pro Mounts- Been holding up better for me anyway than the 16-18 style.
I think if you look back in this thread, I posted that you don't use all of the older pro mounts, The one on the PTO side front is different that the other 3-so you just order another ( like from the mag rear )

new motor mounts again.....

Gents,
I am installing new motor mounts again on my 2017 PRORMK and notice there is a new number listed for the actual mount item #16. (not the snubbers Items 4 & 10)
Does anyone know if this is necessary when changing the rubber snubbers?

I experienced rough idle and rpm under 8000, would increase briefly when I hit bumps. Replaced motor mounts and solved the problem. 2000 miles on mine

I don't have any X-over for the dimensions Jona$/ and it's been tried that the silicon in the groves is a waste of time as it doesn't stay.
I know this thread has been going on for a bit- but the stock pro mounts 14-15 are working. Lot's of good info from the entire thread

For the price of all 4 mounts it's a no brainier to change all 4 when doing the task- takes less than 1/2 hr start to finish
