• 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.

Nov 7, 2017
hey guys and girls,

just swapped my track for a new 136, (Polaris dealer said it would fit, but it doesn't. the tension bolts are all the way back and i still need about an inch to tighten.

the sled is a 1998 Indy trail touring. xtra 10 suspension.
does anyone know what track comes on this sled?

im getting mixed reviews on this sled, some places say 121, others say 133.5

Sounds like the original track was one of the 133" Polaris tracks. They used to make small rail extensions to make the 136" work. I should have some and can dig them out if you are interested.

one can move the skid back 2'' also
its the difference divided by two so an inch will do it in this case.
mine worked at about 3/4" setback, i hate setbacks tho, heavier front.
you can remove and replace the rear suspension brackets with those from an '01 RMK if its like mine, gives lots of mount hole options for this type of thing. just drill out one hole further back/down, do same in the front and should work, but extensions would be better.
