• 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 know what you're going on about, but it sounds like fun!

How is that EZ-ride? My Pro had it installed previously, but kid sold it to his buddy and put the stock back under it. I've been wondering if I should get plate water-jetted to reinforce the tunnel or try and find a used EZ-ride to put back in it.
My opinion.
Ez ride's are great for hill climbs and trail riding.
They suck for boondocking.

Can someone tell me why the Matryx is heavier compared to Axys? I mean, they shaved off the tunnel and still we are seeing heavier weights.

2022 Axys PRO RMK 850 155": 415 lb (188 kg)
2022 Matryx PRO RMK 850 155": 428 lb (194 kg)
2022 Matryx Slash PRO RMK 850 155": 419 lb (190.1 kg)

2022 Axys Khaos 850 155": 415 lb (188 kg)
2022 Matryx Khaos 850 155": 433 lb (196 kg)
2022 Matryx Slash Khaos 850 155": 426 lb (193 kg)

:)
We'll it sure didn't feel heavier when I rode.
More centered mass made quite the impression, I must say.

I doubt you are much further forward, i dont think you could have gotten much farther forward on the axys chassis and i beleive all the clutches and shafts are in the same place.

well the doo rides light too and it heavy
Agreed.

The Doo is 19 pounds heavier than the Poo, but if you add electric start to the Poo they're even with a Doo with SHOT.

Poo has gotta be looking into a lightweight starter system.

If front end / boards / skid are basically unchanged from 16-21 then body position is basically unchanged. Seat might be shorter but who rides sitting down with their ntz on the gas cap? I bet that if same body panels were on the axys vs matrix with equivalent shocks and valving most would be unable to tell the difference ...just like most blind taste tests....
Boost is obviously different case and no doubt base sled is being continuously refined which is great but some of the hype is simply that.

Id bet that what most of what people notice are the cut tunnel, and narrow tank

Something that doo has yet to figure out...... 😂
Haha, True... sort of. They did know how, up until the arrival of the XP I think. So it's more like they forgot...

They might think that a crappy recoil will balance the crappy secondary on the other side of the sled. "Balanced uselessness" or something.
(and before any faithful Doo-fans rip my throat out, I currently have a Lynx 850 and have a Doo 600 on order so I know pretty much what I'm talking about)

What’s interesting, most of the 2022 parts are already listed. Except boost.
The NA 2022 ignition parts, as of last weeks posting, are identical to the MY2021.
Unless there is a 2022 running change, I’m not looking forward to an updated system right now. Maybe it’s a supplier issue. But ......

A follow-up to this post @TRS made – a little off thread topic, but it had me interested.

This parts listing for the RMK Matryx NA (which seems freshly published, I only found it this week) shows a new flywheel. I believe the previous flywheel has a 5 and a 2 tooth track of crank angle triggers. This new part has the description "FLYWHEEL-PBR,21T-3T" suggesting 21 and 3 tooth, and the diagram looks to agree. This would provide increased crank position resolution to the ECU.

Does this account for the added weight of the sled?.. not likely, but it's intriguing non the less.

It says Polaris (Canada) but searching for it, no results.
Thanks.
