• 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.

Safety Tether Install

I bought a safety tether for my 99 600 rmk and now need help installing it. I viewed many utube videos, but I could not find one for my machine. I checked the ignition wiring and I found a 2 wire plug just hanging off of the ignition. I was going to plug these together and see if it works but both have 2 blades but, the connectors don't match. Probably not a good idea to just plug unknown wires together anyway. So I sure would appreciate that someone here knows what I am talking about and can help me out with the wiring. TX

I don't know when Polaris started including a tether plug into their harness but you can always wire your tether across the red kill switch too. Make sure it is closed to kill and your tether is also closed to kill.

On my '02 I found a couple dead-end wires, one black, one brown, that were connected to the kill circuit and ground, respectively. So all I had to do was put the right terminals on the ends of the tether. You might have found the same thing; the plug that came on my tether didn't match either, and I just got rid of it. By the way, I hope you got the one with the black cap. The red caps get loose and will cause intermittent cut-outs as you move around, and won't work at all after a year or two.
