• 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.

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).
Funny I’ve only been around 5 turbo sleds and they have all run flawlessly 🤷🏻‍♂️
(All silber, 2 axys 800, axys 850, 18 mountain cat and a doo 850)

seems to be a majority.

all owned by first time turbo sled / average guys. (Mine is a 16 axys 800 / silber)

That’s good! Doesn’t change the fact that that isn’t what I’ve seen.

4 Silbers on 2013-2015 Pros, on low or no mile sleds, couple of them installed by the man himself- all reflash kits. Sidekicks on 16 & 17 Axys 800s. Some of them have good days (we ride all over elevation wise), but in my experience you never know whats gonna happen when you grab a handful of throttle. I never have been around a Silber Axys.

Install and fitment was good, had to tweek the EV motor a little bit to make the fitment better. They fit nice and tight and cant move around much, we will see soon how it runs.

They look like a nice fit. Some of the twin and triple pipes I ran in the past melted my side panels and hood. Things sure have changed with EFI, everyone remember having to figure out what jets to stagger at different temps and elevations? Constantly watching EGT's per pipe, reading plugs, piston wash, swish and octane mixing, running ear plugs inside your helmet because they were so loud...man I'm getting old lol.

How long ago did you order yours? I was told mine are still about a month out. I'm eager to get them and I hope they live up to my expectations! Should make for a really fun sled if the pipes and head give anywhere close to the claimed hp increase!

this is definitely not the norm rode with 4 last year two silbers two boondockers one silber had no issues. Of the other three two of them had issues on any given ride.

My experience has been that pump gas turbo sleds are as reliable as a stock sled.

My 2020 KHOAS I plan to ride stock for a while, but may add turbo or pipes depending on snow and how this 850 runs!! Keep posting reports please.

In order to install pipes was it necessary to pull the engine?

Am I missing something ?? this is a twin pipe post is it not?? Keep the turbo talk to the turbo post thanks.
Its relevant. If one is gonna spent 2k for some hp they just as well look into a turbo and weigh the pros and cons. I guess I wouldn't say that I think turbos are unreliable... but it takes much less for them to not run correctly (and really run poorly), seems like little things like minor exhaust leaks, bad fuel, incorrect plug gap, wore out clutch parts and such will really make them a dog, where as a stocker (or piped sled) may still run alright. They require more attention, and CAN be finicky. Not for everyone.

These pipes may be a nice alternative to boost, even though you are not gonna see the same HP per $$ gains.

Thanks for the pics and info Chrisco, please let us know how they work, along with anyone else whos trying twins.

Screw old ass Turbos . Let's throw the Supercharger in here ...Mine should be here before your pipes.
I did see they have a Muffler now instead of the twin silencers. Video says for weight savings
