• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • 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.

Teal Green Chaincase Lube????

Just brought home a 2004 RMK 800 and after removing the mufflers I was able to access the chaincase dip stick. Much to my surprise the lube is teal green. Never seen that color before. :face-icon-small-fro

That was actually common in those days. The Polaris synthetic was Purple and the Polaris Dino was a green. The synthetic would boil off / evaporate with prolonged high speed use (read; Iron Dog) so most of us that rode hard and were in the "Know" used the green Dino version instead.

Still have a jug of it here if you want it. I'm all belt drives these days. : )
 
That is a huge relief! I though something was seriously wrong. Is it still available? My search for Polaris Dino came up empty.

I'd be glad to help clear some of your shelf space. What size jug do you have?

They are 1 Gallon with the dealer style 1 OZ per stroke pumps installed. I found the Purple synthetic jug (estimating half full), I'll need to look a little harder for the other one.

It isn't actually called Dino, that's just slang to differentiate it from the synthetic or blended versions. FWIW

You can run all different types of lube in a chaincase. I've seen atf, gear lube, motor oil, hoist oil. It's just gears and a chain/tensioner that needs to be lubed to keep from binding and overheating.
