• 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.

A lot of money to put a new motor in an old chassis. What's the point?

Who would buy it later on when you want to get rid of it?

The main reason why i want to swap the motor is because the edge 800 use alot of gas and oil, and maybe later on iam thinking of boosting it. And i have acess to a tig welder, and the edge chassis have plenty of space in the engine bay. or will it just be a real P.I.T.A to fit it?

Mounting it would be the tough part, the pro motor uses bolts that that go through the motor mounts horizontally and the edge motors have vertical motor mount bolts, if that makes since. Would take some clever thinking.

What would be a lot cooler is a 800ves with UBR900 top end in a pro chassis.

I had started looking into this a couple years ago, putting my old carls 910 into my pro chassis. There is a motor plate made just for it and it is easily done, I decided against it though. I am sure someone can make a motor plate to go the other way, pro motor in to edge chassis, wouldnt think it would be too hard.

Who makes the plate for this swap?

Agreed.

A custom built plate would do the trick.
