  • 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.


Sidekick 850 on pump gas

Easy question .. can the sidekick be tuned for lower psi to run pump gas on the stock head at 4-7000 ft ?

i've been doing some research but that haven't found a definitive answer to that ... I've read a few people going back to stock head due to losing bottom end .. I definitely do not want to bother with race fuel.. we get 94 octane no ethanol easily around here

I rode a friends 2020 850 axys sidekick that ran on pump gas. We were around 10,000 feet. Stock head. Bottom end wasn’t super impressive but didn’t bog. Top end was exactly what you would want out of a turbo. 94 no ethanol is probably pretty close to what guys Mixing av gas 30/70 around here. 100ll/91 ethanol. I would think you would be fine but I’m no expert. Not sure what psi, but sidekick adjusts to make a certain horsepower so boost pounds changes all day long.
Personally I’m looking at force turbos. His customer service is great, and he has been doing turbo sleds for a long long time. Quality is top notch and lots of adjustment available. Not a big company but I think that is a good thing.
