• 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.


twin pipes

Aug 29, 2008
ok.. i have an 05 800.. i am wanting to get as much power out of er as i can... i'm looking into getting twins for it.. anyone have any input as to what kind i should get.. i ride big mountains, so a lot of noise is fine.. do ones with stingers have any advantage over the ones that dump two pipes into one can?... let me know...
I have an 05 with CPI twin pipes with stingers. I really like them, they seem to perform really well and sound great, but i would also highly recomend SLP twins. I prefur the stingers just because they are louder. I dont really know if there is any advantage to one or the other though.

When i had my 800 i ran a SLP single pipe and can, and i would reccomend that setup for the most useable all-around power. Pulls hard right off the bottom end and all the way to the top. I have SLP race twins on my 900 UBR and i love them, but the choice is up to you

SLp single or twins....the twins will work alot better with proper porting and they are more finicky on jetting than the single.

Crank shop pipes

Hi guys, i just picked up 2 800 pol 03 escapes, one of them has crank shop twins on it, I was wondering if anyone has run these pipes before and what rpm they like. The pipes have glass packs not a big can.

I had an 01 pol 800 with psi twins. that sled rocked with great sound and power all over the place. Now i h ave a 04 pol vert escape that i just got crankshop twins for. Also would like to know how they performed if anyone has run these.

I tried Crank shops high atitude twins and I never really road over 7000'. Had a terrible time getting them to work below 6000'. Never won that battle.:rolleyes:
I did hear they worked good up high though, and heard nothing but good things on there lower alt stuff either. I made the wrong choice of pipes for my elevation.
