• 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.


TPS adjustment, warranty or not?

2019 RMK 800, 500 miles, 3 year warranty.

Motor bogs and backfires when put in reverse to unload from the truck.
Intermittent bog when in and out of throttle.
Intermittent throttle surge at clutch engagement after hot start.

Dealer says if it is the TPS that Polaris is denying warranty claims for adjusting the TPS, and that it is now considered "a wear item" so they can transfer the cost to the customer. true or not?

That’s been my experience after year 1 of warranty. If it fails then they replace. If it needs adjustment then you pay.

Kind of goes along the lines if my belt squeals after 500 miles and the clutch needs adjusting...warranty or I pay? You get my point.

I can see having to pay for an adjustment.
