• 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.

haha no it's all good. Didn't mean for it to come across that way. tdbaugha and I are buddies. We both did that pull at the same time, I just had my go pro on.


I’m aware. The “mic drop comment” was all me. My fault for leaving it vague. I figured Tory would get it.

It was in reference to the previous comment that “most riders don’t hold it it the wood for more than 30 seconds.” As you are aware, there is some seriously big country out there.

I think the video (as sick as it is) proves that we shouldn’t just lump all riders into this “most” category. Especially when an aftermarket company is selling performance parts to all riders. We all need reliability and runnability in those situations.

That’s an awesome pull. Not many engines get run that hard for that long especially at almost 200hp a liter like sled engines.

Lol at the twin pipe haters.
I had four sets of twin pipes from 2001 to 2012 with 3 different carburated engines.
I certainly never went through pistons at all.

I MISS the twins, that's for sure.

If I wasn't boosted, I'd have them on my 850 too.

The twin pipes aren't worth the hassle above 8000 ft if you realy want the hp out out you will be spinning high rpm with a power band about as big as a needle. IMO they will work good one day the next you will looking for a box for fueling changes. Maybe with fuel injection it will be different but you will be leaving performance on the table. I think the answer on these it took along time to develop these is because there has been issues with them.
