• 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"


    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.


Ride height and rear sag measurements for Axys RMKs

Does anyone know if Polaris has ever published official ride height (front) and sag measurements for the current crop of Axys RMK sleds?

Reason I ask is because I outfitted my new 18' 174" with a set of Zbroz heavy duty track springs and dual-rate ski shocks .... I measured the front ride height of the sled bone stock before putting the ski shock springs on, and it was 9-1/8" .... I installed the Zbroz ski shock springs at the recommended Polaris factory installed length, and the ride height on the sled was nearly 11" .... so I backed them back down to what the stock ride height was....

But on the rear, Polaris does not publish any measurements in the owners manual? I am wondering if there are any ...

Just thought I'd post up and see what everyone thought,
