• 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.

07 700 dragon trying check tps setting found connector near shock tower with red/white wire and brown wire at the connector. When engine is running Im getting 14v at connector so I assume this would be the correct connector to jumper 12v power in for tps?

No that is the DC power test connector. It will not power the ECU. Look for a connector next to it that has an orange (+) and brown (-). It should state external power (EXT PWR) or ECU PWR.

There is also a red and brown on a smaller connector and a connector with three wires an orange a black/white and a black.
none of the three connectors at the shock tower are labeled at all whatsoever on my 07
If someone had a pic of an 08 and up I could compare with that would be helpful. I'm thinking 07 is a bit different.

I believe it's the connector with the 3 wires. The orange wire should mate up with the red wire on the power up cable. If you can wait, I double check the wiring schematic again tomorrow to make sure.

Yep that one works to power up ecu. Got my tps set no problem.
Thank you for the help. I went ahead and took a little mini sharpie and labeled all three of the connectors now that I know what they are all for.
