  • 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.

TRS clutching is the REAL DEAL

Just got back from a stellar week long trip in the mountains and can happily report that @TRS Tony's clutching was spot on!

2018 Pro RMK 800, 163", Silber turbo, 5 lbs boost, 6-9k feet elevation, straight 91 octane pump gas.

The clutching from Silber was horrible, with regular detonation and several hot blown belts. I put in a steeper helix to help, but same issues. Tony sold me his clutch kit, along with the alignment bar. I set it up to his specs exactly and had nothing but smiles all week long. Zero belt issues, no detonation.

The week started with hero snow, and finished with 2+ feet of fresh over-the-hood powder on a 3 foot base. The sled ran flawless in all conditions, topping out around 8400 rpm.

Thank you, Tony!

Are you running custom cut helix??
I have a Silber on a 17- 5lb spring- ran Silber’s clutching last year with no probs. Been breaking those TEAM almond springs left and right this year and blowing belts. Only thing I changed was new clutch cover and got it balanced. Not sure what’s going on. Maybe alignment issue too?

Correction- sounds like those almonds might not be team brand - not sure. It is what Silber sells off its website

Can you share what the clutch kit is or any details about it? Price? Will it cover all elevations from 1,000 feet on up to 12,000?

I’m also a satisfied customer. Silber #5 on a 17 800 163 2.6 with Pro gears. 8400 no matter what the snow conditions were last weekend. Much better pull in the mid range and top, way quicker back shifting, and it even made the sled run cleaner in the mid range.

I barely had time to throw it together, so I haven’t aligned the secondary or shimmed the primary yet.

For those asking for details on the TRS clutching either contact tony or do search in the axys and/or 850 sections, there is tons of info on what belt to run, clutch alignment and clutch parts.

I bought the TRS bar, clutching and recommended belt for my Silber turbo 850 this year. Close to 600 miles on one belt with TRS clutching. Like said before, the TRS clutching keeps your rpms spinning 100% steady (mine 8450) no matter the snow conditions. It really is the best clutching I’ve tried on an 800 or 850 axys.

Now that we are into spring riding I am still very happy with my TRS clutching. 15” of new heavy wet snow and two days riding. Still maintains rpms better than any clutching I’ve ever used, pretty much spot on at all times.
