• 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.

Keith Curtis ran them on his improved stock 900 at Lost Trail Hill Climbs. There is a GoPro video. It sounded glorious!!!!

This might be it....skip ahead to :58. Bluetooth this into your vehicle and crank it.

I talked with the SLP rep at Jackson, he wouldn’t say but stated their old twin pipe set ups were a grand or more....so I would guess 1,500 ish.

With the power band on this engine already nice and flat at the top, I'd be inclinded to believe these will be even LESS finicky than twin pipes of yester-year.

$2200 for a full twin pipe setup, for a grand more you can get a Silber turbo that adds triple the HP of the twins.

Do you think its's only triple? I lost a lot of hair trying twin pipes. I hope they work.

For a 5-7psi pump gas kit that most run yes, you can obviously get more then that out of a turbo if you crank it up. But since the twins are pump gas I was trying to keep it as apples to apples as possible. It will be interesting to hear some reviews on the twins this winter, the ecu reflash should take all the tuning headaches away that most remember when thinking about twins of the past. Just not sure it's worth the price per hp for high elevation riding. I could see there being some interest for low elevation short track guys, supposedly they will be working on low elevation setups this winter.

Turbos sucks, have yet to be around one that runs good day in and day out.

I think IF these run good they will be sweet. They'll sell a pile either way. I see the pipes themselves are $999. I sure we'll see someother tuning options by next season that will cheapen things up.

At first glance I was sticker shocked, but look at other options. Pipe, can, clutch kit, tuner, add some venting and torque arm you won’t be too far off this price. No idea if it’s worth it or not , time will tell, they do look cool though!

i actually think they are priced very well. If you goto the sup website you can buy just the pipe and can for about $1000 less. I would really like to try them. Im just worried they will lose too much bottom end and be all mid range and top end for the technical tree riding I like.

Oh I know they are out there, but you’re in the minority. Point is its nice to see a new option somewhere between a single pipe and turbo power wise (still nowhere near a turbo, I get that).

Had a long conversation with SLP, they say they have been doing a ton of testing with these. Fuel controller is required, highly recommended all the other stuff too, clutching , venting torque arm etc...

I’m on the shipping distribution list, they are filling orders as they were placed,. I already have venting and their clutch weights so looking at about $1600 investment. I’m on track for mid to late October for delivery, just got notice of my SC shipping so timing is good.
