• 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.

I don't have any firsthand experience, but have heard the 56-42-36 might work well on the Silber 850. Anyone tried this?

Don't start mixing and matching and making up your own kit unless you really like tinkering and finding out the hard way. Silbers setup is pretty solid out of the box but has room for improvement with some full packages from other vendors.

message @TRS for IMO some of the best running clutching on the market.

I guess I'm the oddball because I had a horrible experience with Silber. Their clutching was a belt eater for me, among other issues. Get ahold of TRS Tony and he'll hook you up with the best clutching at a great price.

Tony hasn't done any testing with the 850 and a Silber. Hoping he has a chance to come up with a killer package this winter.

The 56-42-36 helix suggestion was from one of the guys that works closely with Silber and runs a few 850's.

Again, no experience myself, but this was the Helix that was running well on the 800 also I believe.

We have run Silbers on 4 or 5 different 800's. Some do well with the recommended clutching, others seem to chew up belts or break springs. Silber included a helix in the kit until 2016.
