• 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.

Has anyone heard any updates on when SLP might be releasing the twin pipes or even the single for the 850? I sent an email, but no response yet.

Are there any single pipe / can setups out there for the 850's? If so what are the HP increase claims? I'm guessing the aftermarket world is having trouble getting any more HP then the stock pipe??

I don’t think they are having issues getting more HP than stock, I suspect tuning the new ECU is proving to be more difficult and complex than originally thought.

Not to hijack the twin pipe thread but has anyone had the pipe mod from bdx / ssi done to their stock 850 pipe? They are claiming 9hp with no fuel tuning required so it seems like a good hp gain for the money.

I had my first day on Bikeman single pipe and can for my 850. Sounded good and I picked up 150 rpms on a really deep pow day. Will need a couple more rides to really comment on performance but seems good so far. No codes or hick-ups or anything strange through 9 gallons of fuel and the flipper on the bars most of the day.

Nobody I talked to recommended pipe modding the 850 pipe. SLP told me no single this year and few more weeks for twins. Twins will come with glass packs and be loud which was a deal breaker for me. Jaws said next fall for single too. I liked Joey's (at Bikeman) dyno videos and looked like them put a lot of time into the 850 pipe\can set up. Ordered on Monday and received 3 days later even though they thought it was going to take a week to ship.

How long of WOT were you? The "long WOT" section of the dyno video was not acceptable for me. Starts at 175hp and then climbs to 182hp after 15 seconds. Holds that for 5-ish seconds and then starts falling. 20 seconds later its way down to 164 hp and falling fast before he stops the dyno.

The hotter pipe temps created by running the pipe making more power causes the ECU to respond by adding fuel. Our programming will address this and many more issues that stock sleds are having. We will have performance reflash tunes for all stages of build. Most people do not hold it pinned for longer than 30 seconds but if you are one of the ones who do our Bikeman FatAzz pipe is still better than or equal to a stock pipe sled. Once the programming is released it will crush a stock pipe in all amounts of time held wide open.

Will this pipe / can combo be much louder than stock?
