• 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.

Since the charge relay has been moved to the fuse box on the 850 the way the harness is made it will recharge the battery when the sled is running.

I ordered one of these power up cables from CVcustoms. I also had lots of questions for Cole and I must say it was nice to have such excellent customer service. I will keep CVcustoms in mind the next time I need something they carry!

Well, It didn't take long and I ordered the battery box fro CVcustoms. Once again I must say I am extremely happy with Cole's customer service. Why? I needed parts (Durapro ski rubbers), that he could get to my house before leaving for a trip out west. However the battery box would take longer. So he researched where I was going, found the address and is shipping it to the 1st leg of my month long trip riding. I buy a lot of parts, from a lot of places, this type/level of going above and beyond is rare. Thank you Cole! https://cvcustoms.com

I would concur - the customer service is awesome. I purchased a harness and battery box. It showed up and I installed. Had an issue with harness and cole immediately sent me a new one....
in the mean time he walked me through and sent me vids on how to fix the harness I had....
I’m from Alberta and I emailed him probably 8-9 on my time, got immediate responses and help, followed up by a phone call.

Great customer service. Great guy to talk to. Would recommend anytime...

Btw the battery kit and harness work awesome.

Bought the cable and battery box. Needed some advice on install and Cole answered in a timely manner with more information than I asked for. This is what customer service should look like. I tried out the set up last weekend. Love it. Now that fancy gauge can be used the way it was intended. Thanks Cole!!

Just wanted everyone to know that I will be continuing to make the Power Up Cables next season even with Polaris selling the kit now at a price of $169 without battery.... My kit with the battery box and antigravity battery is less then Polaris hardware kit and only a 2lb weight gain!

I will also be making a harness for the 800 AXYS next season! This is due to customer demand. They will be priced slightly higher at $45 due to the extra components required with the 800 motor. I will have them available on the website shortly.

Thanks to all the customers that have purchased these products over last season!

Hey Cole,
Your Power Up Cable worked excellent on my 19 850 RMK so I'm putting one on my 2020 Khaos. Are you still recommending the Antigravity AG-401 battery? Thanks again for such great service!

Yes. That is still my recommendation! You know have to option to buy the battery along with the harness and box as a package deal. That Khaos looks sharp BTW!

Thanks for the quick reply Cole, I will call you today to get one ordered!
Anyone thats on the fence with this power up cable for the Polaris PIDD. It's biggest benefit to me is being able to sit with the engine off so you can talk to your riding buddys and look at the GPS maps on the screen. We are sometimes chasing storms and It's super helpful in complete white outs to see the breadcrumb trail to find your way back if needed or if someone is hurt or broke down to find the quickest way back. I would have just reused my last one from my 19, but once the buyer tried it they wanted it to go along with the sled which says something.

Just receive the kit for my 2020. Last year I used a featherweight battery from Fire Power sold by WPS. That battery only lasted one year and after repeated charging only holds 10.2 volts. This time I ordered the CVcustoms whole kit, wire harness, Antigravity battery and battery box. This is a way better option. The battery and box are way smaller, easier to get to, weigh even less and without even charging the battery it was 13.22 volts out of the box. Clean and easy install. I owned a fabrication business for 15 years, the quality of this little battery box is very impressive for the price, plus its powder coated! (note: Sorry pics got out of order). 1st pic is whole kit. 2nd is battery box mounted on the sled with the 2 supplied screws and 1 optional rivet. 3rd is showing you can get a large hand rivet gun in the space, I normally use my air riveter but figured most people don't have one. 4th is battery out of the box charged. 5th is size compared to the next lightest battery from WPS.

I also ordered the whole kit for my 2020 Khaos, have not installed it yet but looks to be a quality product and as other guys have mentioned, the customer service could not be better. I had a tracking number for my order within 4 minutes of placing the order. Price is also extremely affordable for what you get with it.

Mine stays on with the Key .. am I then only one with two that run the battery down and won't start if I leave it on ??
Maybe a kit that turns it off after 5 minutes can be made for the ones that already stay on .
