• 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.

just picked up a set of walker evans to replace the base ride fx shocks on my 14' standard rmk and they seem to be shorter by almost an inch. Should i be concerned about this? they came off a 16' axys. do i need to replace the shafts? or just run it?

The base RMK used the steel a-arms still after the Pro model switched to aluminum so your shocks are actually a little longer than the 2013+ Pro-RMK and Axys sleds with aluminum arms. They'd probably work in a pinch but I'd take the opportunity to upgrade to a 36" front end if you can afford it, i think all of them work with the shorter 2013+ shocks length. My brand of choice was Alternative Impact because of the sacrificial rod ends that save the arm in the event of a good ski hit.

I might have a set of shocks from a 12 pro rmk that are the same length as your stock shocks. Possible trade?

I'll have to go find them and measure them.
On the 11 and 12 pros I would use 13 on up pro rmk shocks with a 36" a arms.

Well if you’re interested in trading I think I tried PMing you but not sure if I did it right. New to the forums
