• 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.

Power Valve Cable Replacement. Relearn?

I recently replaced the PV cables on mine and my friends sled. Both seem to operate correctly with no shown codes or CEL. How does one know if they need a relearn on them? I see people talk about cable length settings as well. I see no wat to adjust this. It just bolts up with no adjustment. Maybe I missed something? I made sure nothing is coming in contact with the pistons.

No issues replacing on two sleds without relearn.

I replaced mine without doing a relearn. Then about 200 miles later it threw a engine code 520325. Engine light would only come on at WOT. Dealer relearned it and all good.

Did you set new cable back to same position as the old cable - ie measure or count or mark exposed threads / distance to bracket / etc.?

The cable is not adjustable.

You just tighten the nut on each end.

Just did the cable replace and exhaust valve clean up on 18 800 163 with 2200 miles, as the cable failed at the exhaust valve end and took in in for relearn at dealer and first trip out was no problems but we had no powder to ride in (spring hard surface with 5 inches of light snow , but all seems to fine. The only PITA in the whole job is that you need to get the steering vertical post out of the way to get the valve body removed from the front of the engine, there was no Polaris planning went into this!!!

Take the upper portion of the EV assembly off first. (Loosen the cable nut)

Comes out easy then.

I have done this numerous times, I just remove the front steering tie rod end, then the bushing in the lower steering post, as it will move out of the way enough.
As you pull the exhaust valves out, just pull the valves in the full open position with a finger and rotate the assembly up and out. Fast and simple, same when installing them.

There's no need to remove the steering post, just removing the outer cover on the upper part of the EV assembly gives you ample clearance. As long as you don't start your sled or electronically run your actuator while unhooked there shouldn't be any need for a relearn. Mine has been disassembled and reassembled numerous times without the re-learn and all is fine.
