  • 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.

Ok this will probably sound like a dumb question: my analog boost gauge reads 9or10 psi but the vipec is reading 130ish kpa. I thought 130ish kpa is around 4-5psi. Why the difference? This is riding at 9,000 ft elevation. I'm assuming this has to do with elevation, is there an equation for this?
130 kpa is just under 19 PSI. Assuming your at altitude your boost gauge is correct.

To convert KPA to PSI multiply the kpa value by .145
Also the Vipec is giving you absolute pressure, so subtract atmospheric pressure for your elevation, 72kpa, to give you gauge pressure or boost pressure

(130kpa-72kpa)*.145=8.41 PSI as indicated on your gauge

I'm having problems getting the sled to start without holding the throttle wide open. If I don't hold the throttle wide open it'll take multiple pulls & it'll sometimes stall when it does start. I've tried numerous values in the cranking and post cranking values. I can't tell if it needs more fuel or less. I've tried both and also extreme values of both. One thing I noticed is that if the 12v battery is hooked up to the ECU it pops right off super easy.

Maybe you capacitor is going out and its not firing up the pump right? You could also have a pump going out. Has it started well in the past?
Its never started great, it always starts amazing when the ECU is powered up.I can try the capacitor, I have a used spare along that I could put on.

What is everyone running for timing under boost @ WOT? I'm looking for some #'s for comparison purposes. I run 100ll, but looking for #'s on pump gas too.

Also how do I get the knock sensor turned on(& tuned), mine is currently off.

Tried capacitor, same thing. I'm leaning towards weak stator at this point. I will change it put in the off season.

I have been working with the Vi-Pec software doing some tuning but have a question about altitude compensation.

Can anybody direct me to the area within the software that adjusts for altitude?

I can get the sled tuned for 8500 ft elevation but as soon as it gets into higher altitudes it has runs inconsistently.

I think the "BAP" is the barometric pressure sensor that provides input to the Vi-Pec but not sure where in the software to adjust the settings.

Any guidance will be appreciated.
The altitude compensation is mainly done by adding a fuel correction table based on EGT, no need to go close loop at all....that is how the manufacturer compensate for altitude changes.

Great glad everything worked good.
Speedo calibrations
2011-2012 need to be 1500
2013 to current need to be 5000
Hit ESC this will bring up your ecu setting, go to digital inputs,then hit speed, then when the window comes up on the number change it to what ever is needed. Hope this helps. One cool thing is you know have a top speed to show your buddies of about 160mph lol
Brycter,
I need a base setting for a 2012 800 application. It has a turbo setup now.
Do I need to give you a call?

dang I already need help, ive read through this whole thread then skimmed it twice and cant seem to find where info is on wiring in four injectors? the harness only has two what I think are runs for injectors? actually I cant make heads or tails of the tp diagram it should also be labeled on the harness itself. do I just solder all the separate red wires together to 12 v? seems kind of redundant. I wonder if deutch makes a better terminal than these chincy ones that come with it?

realization, I think the two leads in the vipec harness are for the aux injectors and the factory harness is just hooked to the main ones.

probably shouldn't try this after being up thirty hours
