• 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.

Tunnel Bag options for the Slash.

So looking at all the thousand of pictures and videos of the new 22 Slash and I'm yet to see a Tunnel bag. What is making me scratch my head is I can't see how they will attach anyway?

Burandts video shows they tuck in by the seat and pop onto studs on the tunnel.

I also saw somewhere Burandt say that they make a retrofit "kit" for current axys tunnel bags to fit the matryx.

other way around. they make an adaptor kit for the new matryx bags to fit the axys and pro ride sleds. on the top of the tunnel you can see small black decals. under those decals are hole to mount the lock and ride flex brackets. the system is very slick and looking at the bags in the dealer they should work very good.

Haven't seen it mentioned, yet - carrying fuel. Running out of fuel still kinda happens, and a US gal less in the stock tank isn't going to get the sled closer to the truck.

With all these new bags connecting to the flex locks at the bottom of the tank, gonna need to be creative to hang a fuel behind the seat, and a bag further back. Think most of us are wise enough not to hang fuel on the end of the tunnels these days. Maybe someone will do a land office business selling LinQ adapters for the Matryx tunnels. Poo is moving backwards after the flexibility and functionality of their Pro/Axys tunnel mount system. I've run the same Mountain Addiction can and bags on five different tunnels since 2011. Going back to the crapshow of can racks in the 90's and 00's isn't even a laughable alternative.

Slick system but it appears it will only carry one 1.5 gallon can, and I really don't want to mess around with stacking another on top / pulling off 2 cans; unless no other optoins. Here are the specs:


I'm sure there will be other options, will have to see what Mountain Addiction does.

Sucks the stock tank has 1 gal less of gas, the throttle is my friend; buddy nick named me rooster. haha Says he knows which track is mine.

Why are you acting like the mountain addiction rails and gas can won’t mount right up to a matryx?

I don't like the look of cans on the back but wondered if these bags would hold up in the underseat bag or tunnel bag. Anyone here ever use them?

I am ignorant on how the MA rails might be adapted without drilling the tunnel or an unknown rail adapter. If the can, rails are mounted closest to the seat, will see how the new bags work, or don't. Maybe a poo can will have mounting points for the new bags off the can. The aftermarket will be all over LinQ adapters, I'd guess. Yeah, weeny stuff, but fuel gets kinda important sometimes.

the tunnels are pre drilled for the new bag system. just like the doos. i personally wont want to drill additional holes for the mountain addiction stuff. so they will have to come out with an adaptor of some sort for the rails.

I guess I always pack gas so the MA rails will go on and stay on.

Permanent install.

I’m excited that they won’t keep getting moved when i flip the sled into the trees multiple times a day.

Drilled holes in the tunnel will be .01% of the wear and tear the sled gets after a season.
 
Here's an example of the connection points on the MY22 Khaos Slash 146.

The T-channel is integrated into the heat exchanger so on this model they are available a little ways after the seat. After the heat exchanger ends, there are two locations on each side that are pre-drilled with two holes under each one of the black stickers. Basically you have 4 connection points on each side of the sled based on the 146. The other models will have more connection points however because the heat exchanger ends at the seat on the other RMK's the T-channel will not exist past the seat, only the pre-drilled holes under the stickers.
