• 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.

Twins pipes have worked very well at 10,000 for me in the past. Had them on carb and Efi motors. Made way more power than anything else. If you know what your doing you’ll have no problems. They are not for everyone.

I was around the twin pipes on the 850 polaris at the lost trail rmsha race. The twin pipes to me sounded quieter than any ggb are bikeman mountain can.

Man you seem to know allot. It's not SLP's first pipe set I'm sure it works. Had a set of twins on a efi 800 it ran very well pump gas 5000ft and above.
you are right, this is not slps first set of pipes, the first set of theirs that I bought was in 1998 or 99 and I had to weld the cracks in them all the time, I remember how it sucked to get out the wire feed and weld up some more cracks to go ride, was it last year or the year before they had the recall on the 800 axys pipe because all them cracked ?

Last set of twins I had were psi. I think that stands for pure sh!t incorporated . Fitment sucked and they broke right away. A lot of extra heat under the hood on epic days. Had blue Polaris oil running everywhere after I melted my oil lines.

I remember back in the first winter the M1000 came out (05 maybe?)...me and a buddy were out riding and rolled up to this lake in the middle of nowhere where these 2 dudes were exchanging highmarks on a big hill. One dude on a fresh M1000 and the other on whatever the newest Rev was at the time. They were all geared up in the newest everything and straight as an arrow. We bs’d for a few minutes and they bragged up the new sleds.

We were just young turds, fresh out of the bar at 3am that morning and holding things loosely together on A&W breakfast and however many Buds you could fit in a windshield bag. My buddy was a good rider and had a 98 700 RMK with PSI center dumps, a 141 challenger and some other stuff. It was one of those sleds that always went like snot. He one-eyed the line and held it wide open from the far end of the lake, smashed through all the crap at the bottom of the hill, and absolutely pistol whipped every mark the dudes had. I’ve still never laughed that hard sledding.

So anyways I have good memories of twins and hope these run good lol

yes I had 2 sets of them, my 01 800 cat and my 03 900 cat and had to weld the cracks on them also, and yes the twins create extra heat under the hood on epic days.

SLP just keeps pushing the limits on how light they can make pipes and they seem insanely voulnerable to cracking all over given time and vibration.

Curious how these pipes will do in a production enviroment.

Also waiting to see how they work out, if they do make the claimed 17 hp and don't lose on the bottom end, should be in the 180-184hp range.

On my 16 Axys I've had 2 pipes crack, two blue pink springs break and we just welded the can which had a three inch crack across the top, not near a weld. Poor quality! They need to do better.

Pretty much nonstop cracking with all the slp exhaust parts i’ve seen. (At least on 8-10 axys sleds)

I like the heavy silber can on my sled.

It makes funny whooshing noises when i let off though. (Not sure what that is??)
