• 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.

500km plus on mine.
Looks like the track has brushed bottom of guard once or twice on whooped out trail.
Other then that nothing to report.
Sure like a shorter tunnel
 
Do a search there's a few threads on here that you should read in terms of durability.
I did a search. Not a lot came up. I only saw one 4 page thread with a lot of opinions from people who have not tried it and one guy that posted that his track hit it and it caused a leak. I am looking for more experiences and less uneducated opinions on the kit. I'm also wondering if they have refined the kit to be tougher. If you found a thread with many actual reviews, please post a link.

If I were you I would contact the guy that the track hit and was leaking to see what mtntk did for him , he would be the best to talk too.

Thanks for the feedback. That is definitely a concern of mine when jumping and what not. What size track and how much did you cut off?
3” X3 163
Cut off 8 inches
I’m cutting my other sled I like the short tunnel so much but this time going to try the 5’ mtntk cooler and no tunnel shortening kit

I have been wanting to cut the tunnel like the idea of 5 ft cooler but i am curious i have to run 5 to 10 miles of hard pack some days while riding havr you had any problems I run a 174 and my track will grab the flap and pull up onto track on whopped out roads we don't have any groomed trails where i live to good riding and have cooling issues as can be accepted when flap is pulled in have thought about pulling flap

i agree with Neden, do the 5' cooler option. i did the kit from MTNTEK and it worked but i run really hot temps all the time. im going to do the 5' cooler this summer. i love the shorter tunnel, sled keeps diggin if its getting traction.

Looking at the MTNTK kit when the cut is done and replaced with the hose, it looks like a restriction is caused which alters coolant flow. Welding would be better or add the 5' cooler, but then your adding 11 lbs to the sled.

i have seen that it adds weight, is that 11 lbs with coolant? i dont want to add weight but i really need to cool down the temps. i could try welding it back together and ditching the kit?

IMHO, I would avoid the shortening kit and weld it. The plastic parts that are glued in are 3D printed, or at least the ones in the pictures are. Printed parts are only 80% solid, at best. All plastics are porous, believe it or not, but printed plastics are like a screen door. It'll leak, eventually.

Just remove ur snow flap and bumper at run some kind of tight high Mount bumper b&m fab or some thing and I think u will get enough to
Make u happy
Agreed. Shorter tunnels look cool and help with sidehilling and turnouts. And there are some freakin' awesome riders on these forums that would definitely benefit from a shorter tunnel. But, I think the vast majority of riders probably would see similar enough benefits by just removing the flap.

I rode flapless all last season, testing my kit, and it definitely makes a positive difference. Besides, it only costs a Benjamin and takes less than an hour to install. Shameless plug, but a man's gotta make a living

That's what I am going to do, Rogue bumper, snow flap delete kit and 163 in 155 chassis. Sled will be way better than my talent can ever utilize.
