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.
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.
Replaced all the relays, was running Panasonic relays already. All the plugs and connectors have been greased since day 1. Tried swapping the two pack of capacitors under the console, swapped voltage regulators. Still nothing. Have been wiggling connectors and nothing still
Just had this happen on my 17. Right below the airbox there is another bag with connectors in it. The one that comes from the stator is probably melted. We cut the connector out on mine and soldered/ shrink wrapped it back together.
Friend just had this issue. His was a combination of mouse that chewed some wires & bad capacitors under the console. Check fuses as well. He ohmed out the capacitors & found two of the five bad. P/N is 4013412
Went through the sled last spring, stator connector was not melted, checked connections and such and put the hold back on and everything worked.
Well yesterday end of the day the head lights flickered a few times and lost head lights tail light, hand warmers again. Gauge cluster works. Looked again at the white stator plug, not melted, doesn’t look like any corrosion (applied dielectric grease to all the connectors when the sled was new) I swapped capacitors last year with another sled. Have looked for ohm steps, anyone have any info or link?
Well just found the stator harness rubbed on the coolant pipe, cleaned them up and found 1 orange wire with copper showing. moved the wires away and still no lights. Could that have Burnt up the stator?
I had the same thing last winter ended up being my stator connector. I put on a new stator cuz I thought mine was bad but the new one works the exact same so if you need a stator I have one ill sell ya only had 500 miles on it and works the same as a new one.
Well found the problem, it was the white stator connector looked at it closer and what I thought was di electric grease smeared around was actually melted plastic, and the tin connectors in side had moved around. Temporarily splice them together to test the sled and back to normal
Bought a weather pack kit, with pinning and crimping tools, and a 4 wire plug. I’ll post pictures
I looked at that plug last year and it looked fine, and even recently, thought it was dielectric greased smeared around but after touching it it was melted plastic.. and then I noticed the connectors moved back in the plug as well
