• 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.


WTB bulkhead for IQR

Dec 8, 2017
I have an '05 IQR that I did a 600 VES swap. Now I've noticed that the bulkhead has some serious damage. There are many stress cracks and straight up damage where the A-arms bolt in. I'm looking for a new bulkhead or whole tunnel and bulkhead. Any help would be appreciated!

I have a virgin 2005 IQR rolling chassis. I’ve sold off the suspensions and drive train, as my intention is / was? to mountainize it. I’m in Alaska so shipping would be a lot. I’d guess you can locate something closer / cheaper, than mine. I see you’re new here, a location entered into your profile would be helpful. FWIW

Back to the broken or cracked Original. ... Does the sled have a fishbone between the all the suspension mounts??

I raced for Polaris till 06 and we had a huge Tech Update the day after Duluth . There should be two other updates also . The Lower arm Steering Stop was to be ground back and a reinforcement made to keep the arms from snapping from impacts . The front suspension would Detatch from the sled and cause huge chassis rips and cracks like you are seeing ! And the second was a new air box that was not as thick so it was easier to remove and reinstall (the intake hole was also in the wrong place )
