• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • 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.

Wedge CRC/GEN II bulkheads the same?

Picked up a set of drop and roll plates that are supposed to be for a Wedge chassis. My sled is 1997 XLT RMK Xtra- 10 133 with the CRC "controlled roll center" front end--My question is are the bulkheads the same between this and the Gen-II bulkheads? These plates are partially marked and not completely cut or drilled. I have a Gen-II chassis with a Holz drop and roll that uses the Wedge chaincase and relocates the jackshaft inside the tunnel. I was wondering if I could use the plates already installed on the Gen-II chassis to pattern from? TIA!

I don't think the XLT got the extended case that the 700s and later Gen2s got. I could be wrong but its different part numbers when you look them up anyway.

They didn't, I was told several years ago by the fellow that used to have the Polaris dealership that the XLT's RMK's didn't get the longer chaincase...

It's sort of a dead issue for me, (I need to actually look at the stuff I've bought and squirreled away for forever before I start asking questions...the plates I have are actually ready to install--marked LH or RH side and have the holes already drilled for the chaincase, bearing flanges and an alignment hole on each one...I matched up the chaincase holes with the Wedge case I removed from the Gen II chassis)...

You could also use an edge rmk chain case. They're longer than the gen 2s.

Wanting to do a drop and roll and install a 144 xtra-lite skid I picked up a while back (there I go again...hoarding stuff for an "another day" project) to run a 144 Polaris track I bought...

Had a bit of a setback this spring healthwise, moving into a bigger mobile home on the same property over the next several weeks is going to take a lot of my time up.

It WILL happen, it'll be a good project for next summer for me and my oldest boy who's really been wanting his old man to teach him about riding...
