• 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"


    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.

After a full season of development and testing, I'm proud to introduce the Everett Removable Snow Flap Kit!
We've developed a simple design to allow you to remove your stock snow flap and attach it to the tunnel of your sled within seconds. It's time to lose the flap!
Order today at everettsports.net/snowflap

Improved Hill Climbing :: Less Getting Stuck :: Easier Hopovers :: Better Wheelies!

- No tools required after installation!
- Reduces drag so you can climb higher and get stuck less.
- Provides for flap removal when backing your sled down a steep ramp.
- Better access to your bumper for those times when you do get stuck.
- Similar benefit to shortening tunnel without the labor and loss of resale value.
- Reattach snow flap in seconds for trail riding, low snow conditions, or roost deflection.
- A snow flap's only benefit in deep snow is to help you get stuck easier!

Snow flap not included. This kit uses your existing snow flap and only works with the following Polaris snow flap part numbers:
5451976, 5438021, 5456130, 5438788, 5438529 and 5455980. Basically, if your snow flap looks like the one in the pictures (with or without holes), it'll work. I'm currently evaluating the 3" track snow flap.

Using a snow flap listed above, this kit will work on all 2011-2021 Polaris mountain chassis, Pro Ride and Axys, snowmobiles. Works with stock Polaris bumpers and most aftermarket bumpers.

What's Included?

- Stainless steel magnetic snow flap mounting bracket
- 2x corrosion resistant zinc-plated steel receiver brackets
- 2x retaining shock cords with adjustable cordlocks
- Mounting hardware for snow flap and tunnel bracket
- Installation Instructions
- Snow flap not included

I've got kits to ship starting this week, as well as an installation video. I'm a regular on here, so if you have any questions, post them up and I'll answer back.

Yes, there really is a noticeable difference! Thanks for looking and thank you SnoWest!
