• 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.

hey guys anyone have this issue ? 19 - 850 AXYS 163 - on steeper downhills in the trees - need to use reverse once in a while to re-position while exploring drainages etc in more setup snow and the dang sled won't engage reverse and I'm in a sketchy spot needing to hold the brake and get into reverse! If it's soft and the powder will hold the sled still facing down no issues and of course on the flats - no brake so no issues What gives?

Brake has to be off to switch into reverse.
Let off brake hit reverse then back on brake. Or
Unhook brake light wire and it will work All the time if needed.

Ya Probably some safety feature,
I also noticed that my 18’ 800 will let you go as much throttle as you want in reverse, and my 19’ 850 seems to have a governor in reverse cuts the engine out at about half throttle.

I wondered about that and thanks - I might have to do some rewiring to get the brake light to work as well - I don't remember my 18 having that problem but it sure made for a couple of hairy moments this winter lol

yakima, wa.
Must be an 850 issue as the 19 800 has no problem going in and out of reverse with the break on?

Sent it

in the steeper tight downhills I try to stay on edge too but ran into this circumstance twice this winter - would have been nice to get reverse in both of those spots
