• 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.

Hey guys I don’t know much about Polaris sleds have been a cat owner all time. But I am looking and wondering if possible to take engine from a 1995 Polaris super sport 440cc fan and put it In a 1996 Polaris 488cc Indy trail sled? I was thinking of doing this for my youngest boy to ride. Any info wether this is a direct swap or not be great. Thanks

The part numbers are different for the engine mounting plates. They look the same on the parts fiche but dimensions may be different or it might just be a matter of drilling some different holes in the plate. You would have to do a physical comparison to know for sure.

I think retiredpop is right. Not a direct bolt-in swap, but mounting plate differences is about all you should have.
Once you get it mounted, you should be able to get the rest to go in with minor troubles.

The Super Sport used the P90 clutches and the Trail used the P85 clutches. Use the clutches from the trail and you'll be ok. Otherwise you'll have to swap out jackshaft to the splined one from the Super Sport
