• 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"


    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.

I ride a 01 rmk mod. The 800 triple in it just got a fresh top end and the sled runs amazing. But I hit a small tree yesterday and luckily the only damage was a huge bow in one of my lower radius rods. I'm wondering what rods will fit? Do they have to be off of a gen 2 rmk or any gen 2? Also does anyone know if wedge or edge rods will work? I want to get back on the snow as soon as possible so I will buy whatever fits and worry about the stance I want later. Also any ideas what would happen if I put different sized rods on? I have a perfect set of aftermarket rods for one side but the other side is destroyed. If I put the upper and lower aftermarket rods on one side and leave the other stock what would happen? Thank you for all your input and if anybody wants to sell some I'm interested haha.
Thank you,

Non RMK would be 41" front end, which would have longer rods. Wedge/Gen 2 are essentially the same bulkhead. I believe that I have a set of radius rods for your RMK. If you're interested, PM me...
