• 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.

Sticking high idle Silber turbo

I've got a '16 Axys 800 RMK with a Silber turbo that has started acting up at idle on me. The sled has about 1300 miles on it, 700 or so since the turbo went on it. On a cold start, it usually starts in 2 pulls, but needs a little blip of the throttle so that it doesn't die. It will idle fairly low, but once I blip it enough to go over 3200 RPM, the idle will not come back down below 3200 RPM unless I flip the kill switch off and then on quickly again. Other than the idle issue, the sled still seems to run flawless. Has anyone else seen this issue? Dealer checked TPS and said it checked out good. I have sprayed ether around the intake boots and PTO crank seal and did not get a change in RPM. Checked the throttle cable, and it does not appear to be hanging up (if it was hitting the kill switch quickly probably wouldn't bring the idle back down). Reeds maybe? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the tps your self. There's some pretty good directions on the forum on how to do it.

Interesting. If it were reeds, it would likely be difficult to start. A low idle is common with the Silber turbos, but going to a high idle is not. Does it idle high when the engine is warmed up and you've been running it a while?

Everything stated in the OP posting points to a TPS that needs to be adjusted.. The dealer has parameters that the TPS will test OK for ( on the digital wrench) - but getting it closer to where it should be ( narrowing the parameters) will keep it from having the issues stated, especially the low idle ... Flickering headlamps on the 2016 was a sure sign of low idle issues, a low idle is not common with Silber Turbos- adjusting your TPS was always the culprit on that issues.

It does not seem to make a difference if it is warm or cold. It will idle high as long as I ride it until I shut it off and restart it. Or just flick the kill switch quick. Then it will go back to a low idle again until I flip the throttle and it goes over 3200.
