• 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.


Snapped Torque Arm

Mar 15, 2021
Bend, OR
I broke the front torque arm. 17 RMK 155. To fast on whooped out trails. Sometimes I think I'm a snowcross racer.... I am Not even close!
It snapped in two places, bottom right and top left. And chunked out the guide lugs on the track.

The question: I can't find a used rmk torque arm on ebay, lots for axys switchback. I've read the torque arms are the same in the front (even on the Pro ride??), the rear of the skid is where the geo is different? Can anyone confirm the the torque arms are interchangeable? Can I put a axys switchback arm on my axys rmk? All the part numbers are different, but I know many parts are the same with different part #s. I don't know anyone with a switchback to take measurements and check.

Also, I think the track should be fine? It didn't take the lugs all the way out, just chunked out the inside edge.
