• 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.


Track improper wear

Feb 7, 2021
2016 800 rmk 163 2.6 something is chipping away at the side of my lugs on RH side any ideas? I thought maybe ice scratcher but you'd think the other side would show some of the same wear?

Kinda hard to see in photos but it's essentially wearing like that on every lug. I think I can feel something below my feet when riding too

(Common wear point from the sleds natural ease of sidehilling on the left side) = pushes the track against the right side of the tunnel..........

Add a fender washer on each side of the rear suspension between the drop bracket and suspension. (Makes your tunnel opening wider)

Then adjust your track tension so it runs centered.

Common to see this from being slightly misaligned and rubbing on the chain case housing or quick drive housing.
