• 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.

A rather large group of people! We have been pumping out khaos 163 rails steady for the last 4 weeks and working our tails off to keep up with demand. From 163 stretches, 155 bombers, and even 146 bombers, the demand is real!

People are very excited about this platform and we are working tirelessly to be able to help guys build exactly what they want out of it.

I emailed a few weeks back but no reply so far...
Do you know if your 2 wheel antistab will work on the khaos 2 strap limiter to replace the limit strap shaft?
I'd like to run the 2 wheel kit so that when the hyfax wear down it doesnt wear on the hyfax screw.
WIll 4 wheel work too?
thanks..

For those who own a AXYS and especially those who came from Doo, try adjusting the front skid shock before complaining about the AXYS feeling planted. These sleds are like no other for small adjustments producing huge results regarding handling. With just 2 turns tighter of the spring on the skid shock these sleds can feel way lighter and out of control if you go too far. My Doo's of the past felt like there was no change from one end of the spring adjustment to the other. Not downplaying the Khaos but try this before you think you need a Khaos. You may have to loosen the rear skid too as both shocks combined handle the riders weight, not just the rear. A change only in the front can result in a harsher ride.

If you plan on using the Khaos for what it is intended, then the 163 kind of goes against that.. I'd just ride it stock until warranty is up, cutting the tunnel sounds fun until your engine blows and you are left with the bill because Polaris says your modified/tampered with the cooling system, too bad so sad.

Should be an awesome sled, ride it stock.. then go from there. My opinion is, I doubt it needs much or any work to make it more fun than it already is.

But I know some guys just love spending money.. so go for it.. see if i care. lol.

On the contrary. Just went live with a new site which has a few holes in it hence the phone number missing, working on keeping track of things on as many fronts as possible right now. Also unfortunately our main sales/customer service employee moved onto a new career path so emails and phones are a bit overwhelming right now. We are doing are best to reach out to everyone on every front but we are in the midst of a sales season like we have never seen before.

As for the Khaos limiter strap on anti stab, Yes, it works perfectly. They dual limiter straps do taper in slightly to the inside of each wheel, but due to the profiling of our center shaft they cannot slide out and drag on the anti stab wheels. If you want when placing an order you can call in and we will pre-cut the rails for the anti stab on the mill so they are perfect and radius. Its a $25 fee but ensures you get exactly what you want right out of the box.

The 155-163 khaos build is insanely popular as well as the regular RMK version as well. If you are thinking on it, please do it sooner then later as we are cranking as hard as we can to get product to customers but lead times are on the rise as demand continues to grow. We are expanding our machining team to help keep up with demand but with the season fast approaching, better to be in front then the back of the line.

Here’s my best guess of priorities as a sled parts business.

1 large repeat customers (dealers, WPS etc. )

2 walk in customers

3 call in customers (actually buying not just looking for information)

4 orders through the site (paid)

5 email orders

6 email inquiries

7 inquiries through the website.

8 social media inquiries

it may seem like you aren’t getting the attention you want but often the reality is there isn’t enough hours in the day to make everyone happy. (Especially during the fall rush)

I see a phone number at the very bottom of your page now, thanks. Maybe it was there before and I hadn’t seen it !

I placed an order yesterday for rails to stretch mine out to a 163. Now I’m waiting on the sled!
