Yamaha Phazers

9 posts in this topic

Anybody riding one? I'm looking at picking up two and just want some real experiences with them before I make the move. I'm going to trade in an XC500 and a SuperSport 550 on them. They are giving me an OK deal on the two Phazers since they are both non-current sleds. Both are '07s.

I'm 190 pounds and my 11 son will ride the other along with my wife.

I have a phazer mtx mountain 144 track For sale 5,000$ 1000 miles. great on gas no adding oil.just change the oil every year. Sell you sleds on your own you will get more money. The 121 phazers will be great for the family no too fast, but fast enough. there is some low milage used phazers out there for a good price.

Mnuser john dee is a great guy.......

My father in law has a Phazer MTN lite and I like the sled a lot. It has a good rider position which is big to me. It did seem a little tippy if you ride twisties fairly hard. He added the regular Phazer front end (wider) for flat land riding around MN, but swaps it out for the mountains. It's a little heavier but that didn't seem to bother metoo much. I liked the backshift it had out of the box....that was pretty cool. I have only riden it a couple times so not a ton of seat time. I would definitely consider one of the newer Nitro FX's.....mainly because of the HP. The first time I heard it run I thought I was riding a 4 wheeler.....that was pretty different on a sled.

He also has an 04' M7, 05' F6 EXT, and an 08' Crossfire 8. I like the seating position more on the Phazer than the cats. The cats still seem to have a bit of a sit down/back vs the rider up which I really like.

I am riding a 06' Gade right now and don't think I would want anything different.....besides a new XP!!!

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
