• 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.


Swapping engine from aggressing chassis to wedge

I am swapping a polaris ultra engine into an xlt. I had pipes on my xlt and have blown it up about 3 times and am sick of it. Yes i learned my lesson. I have a complete ultra spx and want to take motor out ant put it into the xlt chassis. I roughly measured the engin bays and i know i can get it to fit just not 100% sure what sorta fitment issues im gunna have. I know the exhaust is going to take some persuasion and carbs look like they sit lower. That is all i noticed from just looking at it on the spx. Has anyone done a swap like this??
I wanna keep stock pipes if i can it looks like they are going to run into the steering, but if needed, the xlt has psi mod blasters in it that i could get to fit. I want it to be reliable. As far as cooling goes the xlt has a nose cone cooler in it. I have a temp gauge so after the swap if it gets hot i can put tunnel coolers in it with a t-stat.

Thanks for any input

The Ultra was originally made in the wedge chassis, so there should be motor mounts and exhaust out there somewhere. Might have to check some salvage yards.
