• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • 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.

Narrowing Ski Stance

I'm new to Polaris sleds and I have a couple questions about my 99 xc 700:

1. I want to narrow the ski stance. I know people say you can use the rmk radius arms to do it but it's never clear on what year to use them from. Anybody have a clear answer for that?

2. The guy before me put the skid from an 04 pro x in place of the old skid. If I add rail extensions am I going to run into clearance issues with the track lugs and the tunnel?

Thanks!

I would think radius arms from a 1997 to 1999 RMK would be the ones to use. They all use the same part number.
Rail extensions should have nothing to do with track clearance. Are you thinking of putting a bigger lug track in or just a longer track? Bigger lug tracks sometimes need smaller drivers or a drop and roll on the chaincase to get the clearance needed.

I was thinking about getting a 136" with bigger lugs the 1.25 is nice but not what I'm looking for.

Check to see how much clearance you have between the tip of the lugs on your existing track and the front of the tunnel. That would give you an idea how much bigger you can go.
