• 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.


running 40mm carb on 600 non ves motor and everything else is 2000 800 rmk.

Feb 14, 2014
ok I bought this sled cheap.... its a 2000 800 rmk that the owner dropped a 02 600 non ves motor in it. everything is 800 except the engine itself. it had bad bog on bottom end. I re-jetted the 40mm carbs and that helped tremendously. but still has slight bog after the bog it gitty-ups real good. took it to my local sled shop and they told me I can't run the 600 without changing everything else? They claim i'll smoke the motor in no time cause the timing is different and exhaust is different, they are the original 800 parts. is this the case or are they filling me up with a bunch of technical b.s. that a person would ever notice. it has 800 slp twin pipes. gimme your input please.

I would think the 600 cdi has a different timing curve to it than an 800. I'm not sure what an '02 600 non ves is. If it is a '97 thru '05 600 bb then coil, stator and flywheel are all the same, if not then I'm not sure, maybe someone else can help.
