• 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.

Yup, pretty common on the older 700s... they stop working when hot and then cool off and start working again.

I had a similar problem on my 98 XC700; it would sputter like it was running fat. Stop and let it cool down, then it would run fine for a short while until hot again. I replaced the stator and then all was good again. Not saying for sure that this is your problem, but it sure smells like it. An easy, but not too cheap fix. Good luck

I have not used them, but it would be nice to get these repaired, usually its the ducati pickup that fails, and as far as I know are not available. Used is ok as long as it ran when removed and you get it cheap enough that if it goes bad in 6 months you are not upset. New runs around 250.00 ish if you can find one. if you do get it repaired please post results/price as I have 4 needing to be sent in for repair. :face-icon-small-coo

btw they seem to last around 3-4 years riding quite a bit.

ok so i finally decide to swap the stator for a new kimpex unit now it wont even run right it starts but pops and farts and keeps dieing it seems like the spark is intermittent i pulled plugs and checked the spark it looks ok at first but the more i keep pulling it over i think they fire but seem to randomly miss . when i get it to run it sounds like crap ihave got the rpms up to maybe 3500 but dies suddenly is there any way to test the cdi or did i get a bad stator it ran fine before just quit one time when it was warm

Swap 98 stator, and CDI for 2001 stator, and CDI

Hey all. I am building a sled based on a 98 600 liberty. I realised recently that it needs the ducati stator, and cdi. I do not have the CDI, and do not want to buy one used for $200.

Is it possible to take the stator, and CDI from the 2001, and use it on the 98 motor?

Thanks much for any help.

I could be wrong but my manual says the ignition system is totally different. 2001 used a 3d ignition system. 1997-2000 did not. I would imagine you might be able to use the CDI, but you would want to make sure you set your timing to zero degrees as a baseline using a dial indicator before you install the CDI and stator.. I would bet money your sled is anywhere from 10 degrees to 18 degrees currently. If the CDI is trying to compensate for timing and your already advanced you could run lean rather quickly and ruin some pistons.

That's just my humble opinion of what I would do if I was set on making the 2001 system work. Also, Doesn't your 1997 have like a 2 piece flywheel system? My 2001 doesn't have any way to advance or retard timing from what I can tell using the flywheel and stator like the older sleds.
