• 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.

New intermitant vibration at the left foot and running hot

Out riding yesterday my 12 pro got a little hot a few times, usualy its around 128 heading in on the access trail. I changed 2 things on it from when I rode it last #1 a new belt and #2 apolaris tunnel pack shovel bag. Anyways it got hot a few times and I notice a new intermitant vibration at my left foot so I'm thinking maybe a jack shaft bearing? I'm about to bring it inside drop the panels and have a look ,try moving the secondary clutch around and look for signs and lift the machine and pull the track around.
Anyone got any ideas ? It ideas and runs as usual it's just started getting hot and developed the vibration

My sled typically runs at 123 when in loose snow and on ice I've seen it in the 180s. This was with out ice scratchers at all. I've seen cooling issues related to an oring in the head coming out of the groove when installed. Just something to think about if you've had it apart recently.

Well your in there deffinitly do the t-stat bypass upgrade with the doo 99 stat in the t-fitting. My temps stay around 104 even in marginal snow now and fluctuate much less. On hardpack for along time I maybe seen 120. The new axys sleds are running this step up cause it’s much better with handling temps. Cheap and easy. If u need more info let me know.

Thanks Ryan , this 12 pro is a well established last year build that has not had the head off lately and no compression loss , but that's deafinatly food for thought.
 
Did you check the driveshaft bearing behind the secondary clutch? My 13 had the problem and you felt it in the left running board. Might load the motor too.
I pulled the secondary and tryed to woble the shaft and I suspended the back end of the sled in the air and moved the track by hand. Then secondary and belt back on I fired up the sled and spun the track up ab bit all seemed ok.

The track shaft came into my head first as well but I think it was pretty isolated to 13+ sleds with the aluminum stub.

Vibration

Did you ever figure out the intermittent vibration? I have vibration that started as intermittent now consistent when coming to a stop and or turning left. Checked chain tension and track tension and looked over suspension and bearings still the same. Just curious what you found.
