• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.

  • 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.

Conclusion: on deep lug track turbos with insufficient tunnel clearance to run 8-9 tooth drivers, use Avid 2-piece combo drivers and a fully clipped track at tightest tension you can manage without bottom end detriment or braking feeling on throttle off coasting. Again, stay away from any extrovert driver design that's going to drive the extrovert cogs against track rubber...you want the star tips butting up against metal if you want efficiency.
So how about a fully clipped 2.6 Axys track with 8 tooth Pro drivers-(and driveshaft) that still have excellent clearance and on boost.?

I feel that from your statement above, the extrovert is the issue now.. as the introverts,can slip on the nubs.
At least we fully clipped the track to rid of the annoying wear, but run the chance of deflecting the drive nubs under boost.....

We have 3 Axys set up this way for this season, and didn't want to have to go to extro's and the anti stab- as why we are trying this route--
It flat out worked awesome last season never slipped, and could run the track tension where we wanted to - but boost is the addition this year.... and sounding like it's going to be an issue.....

Extros

So I guess no one is making an extrovert driver for the 2017 Axys with the chain case. What the heck?

I went with Avid extroverts and their anti stab kit on my Axys 3" chaincase, 163/ Silber with Raptor shocks

My dilemma is what track to use. The stock Polaris 3" (light weight) or the challenger X3 ( fully clipped but heavier).?...
I would think the stock 3" would be better in powder, but, am I asking for issues not having all the windows clipped???? And am I better off with the more heavy duty X3 having the turbo?

AK- ordered my anti stab through Avid and it looks nothing like yours... is yours from Avid? Mine looks like it was made by Wahl Bros... Like the look of yours better

Mine is from Iceage. Billet 4 wheel kit.

The Polaris 3" is working well IMO. I have not issues as it stands and I did some serious alder bashing last weekend.

I believe you will have better success with the 8 tooth pro drivers. Try them under boost before switching out to more expensive Avids.

It's a gearing thing -- what works on 7's don't work at all on 8's
The 8's have not slipped on 3 of our sleds, boosted and non.
With the 8 tooth, do you swap your quick drive gears to older model (2.09 gearing)? Or you have a TKI or Kurt gear down kit?

Its an old thread, but if you are running boost with every other window clipped, it will ratchet. I has this problem with my tnytro when I first got it and went through 2 sets of drivers before realizing the problem was not having a fully clipped track. Put a fully clipped track on, and had no more problems.

I am running into ratcheting issue was a stock 2019 850 SKS 146. I ride at 300feet above sealevel and am using the 20T 40B 8tooth stock setup. The track is tight, only a 1/2 inch left on the adjuster.

I am looking to choose between clipping the inside windows or installing the extravert drivers. Has anyone had sucess clipping the inside windows with the stock polaris drivers? If I can avoid using an anti-stab kit that would be my preference.

On a stock track if your having issues, We fully clip the outer window's -- generally it's not slipping issues why we did it.. it was a wear issue from the hyfax eating the track where every other window was not clipped... are your speaking about track tension adjuster or the chain case tension adjuster.. I can't imagine only having only 1/2" of adjustment on the track tension adjustment.. there you might find your answer!

if your going to run the extrovert's you need to fully clip the outer windows that run on your hyfax... Polaris stock drivers run on the inner nubs of the track and the center driver generally is a catch point, and we omit that center driver generally, but still can be used.
