• 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.

Polaris RMK vs Pro RMK Shocks

Had a search online and couldn't find this info. I broke both side of my 2015 RMK front torque arm a couple days ago. Thinking while waiting for the parts worth trying to get new shocks since have the stock ones and non rebuildable and the sled has 5k miles (and as far as I know never been changed).

Anyways looking to buy some used shocks, but can't find the info on what sleds shocks will fit a 2015 standard RMK. Will the Pro RMK Walker Evans fit? And what years? Anyone have a resource for finding shock fitment? Looking at part manuals didn't work for me. Do you just go by measurement when buying?

Also read that I should upgrade my springs to something heavier? Anyone recommend that or just do skid shocks for now? Looking for front shocks too, but focused on skid for now.

Skid shocks, all the 2011-2015 are interchangeable. Axys has one different length skid shock, forget which one, it was widely discussed in the snowest forums... Front shocks are another matter. 11-15 RMK not the same as PRO 2013-15 (13-15 Pro are shorter). 2011-2012 Pro and RMK are the same length. Assault are another matter completely, not as familiar with them, but wider ski stance and longer shocks in general. Axys 16-18 non-react front shocks are the same length as 13-15 Pro front shocks and interchange.
I think I got that right...

Ok thanks, I'll screenshot this and keep it for when I'm looking online for used. Hopefully find something, doesn't sound like can even get new custom shocks this year.

Hope someone correct me if I am wrong on any of this LOL. But I believe I am correct... somewhere here on snowest forums is the info on rear shocks axys vs. pro-ride Pro RMK shocks (rear shocks are same length RMK and Pro, RMK are non-rebuildable and basically only adjustable for preload). Of course the Khaos is once again different (I think) and I have no idea on those, front or rear, haven't paid that much attention, too much chaos in my life already LOL
