• 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.

I have a deep seeded love for the old sleds. I have a 97 that I upgraded it to a GEN II belly pan and Lexan hood. I am just in the process of doing a refresh in the engine compartment and also I am installing a 155" Polaris Pro skid along with a 162" X 2.5 Camo extreme track driven by a titanium driveshaft with Avid drivers. I vote for bring the old dog back to a glory state and make it a sleeper on the hill like I have done. when I pull up to the hill and pass the new sleds mark its seems to be a real attention getter!

I'd keep it, put a longer track on it, raise the bars, and update the skis. The 97 is a legendary sled. I'd love to get my hands on a stock one eventually.

here's mine, only thing I don't like about old iron is how low and back the seats sit, so I swapped a tank and seat from a pro ride rmk. Original height of seat from the top of the tunnel was somewhere around 8.5 inches, and with the new seat its about 14. Havent ridden it yet, but from sitting on it in the yard it feels way better

We put pro seats on a gen 2 and an edge rmk they were both nice improvements. We just fabricated a front support bracket and used the original gas tank.

If you have a 700 cdi, put that on that 600 and it will drive away from a 700.

Light weight trailing arms if you can find some and lighten that seat. I used an gen 2 tank and used an F7 seat bottom widened and straightened out the angle and shaped it for the polaris cover and cut out for an layer of styrofoam in the bottom. 6kg lighter including the trailing arms 12 ish lbs.

The stock seat base is an tank... half inch plastic.

Lighter newer skid.
