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.
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.
The biggest key is setting things up like silber tells you too... steer away from that and here come the problems! I have seen it before... then the social media bashing starts just to find out that your a dip **** and can't leave stuff alone
Ran one last year on an 850 Khaos. Pretty easy install and good fit and finish. For sure get a clutch kit from a reputable clutch guru. Adding bigger intake vents and a TSS bypass is a must. I could never get my sled to run without Det at 5lbs unless is was 50/50 Av and premium, I ride 5,000-7,000 feet. For the most part it was pull and go all season. I’d suggest not running one unless you have a little mechanical knowledge, clutch’s need to be cleaned more often and sled checked over more then a stock sled. Everything needs to be just right for the sled to run proper.
That being said the aftermarket guys are in trouble. The factory offerings run a lot better. I couldn’t get a Polaris boost so will be running a doo turbo this season. No comparison on how well the bottom end is on the doo turbo. Hopefully the boost sled is the same.
I have an intercooled silber on a 19’ 850 and another silber on a 20 khaos. They both run very good. Run about 20% race fuel at 6ish lbs. Good clutching is key, TRS is the best. Have a used kit for sale if anyone interested
