• 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.

Going to change out my mounts this spring. Was only able to hit 8150 this last time out west. Belt deflection was good & had new primary spring installed. About 800 miles on my 16.

The PRO-RIDE mounts are 25 bucks a pop now, best price I can find. The 16/17's PN's were replaced with the 18' PN, and are ~19 each. 120 bucks on these cheap POS motor mounts shipped is a little retarded... Bad enough to pay close to 90...

New PN's for the 16/17, both 18.59 each.
MOUNT-ENGINE INSERT RAD PTO: 3023290
MOUNT-ENGINE INSERT RAD MAG: 3023291

Think I'll pocket 30 bucks and use the upgrade 18' PTO on all four corners and call it a day. They won't last but a season anyway. :-D
P.S. Torque Arm piece has jumped to just under 40, up 13 bucks from when I looked at in the spring. Polaris must be loving the 500% mark on their consumables.

After reading this whole thread I think i only saw one mention of the front mag side adjustment for alignment. I was able to loosen the 2 40 tx bolts from under the sled and wiggle the motor some with a strap to get .038 better alignment. Before I was @ .063 now down to .025. I had no idea this was possible as I did not have a shop manual until the other day.
