Anyone have one of these? I am looking at picking one up...end of season sale and I am curious if anyone else has one and what their thoughts might be. Thanks.

just getting into the sport again after many many years. I have a 99 vmax.

I like the idea of a 4 stroke engine but I do understand they have their issues. I would be mostly doing trail riding in the West central MN area....but enjoy getting off the trail in deep powder here and there.

yeah, of course. I am just curious if anyone has one..and if they would share their opinions. I am scheduled to meet with the dealer tomorrow and test one...but I just thought I would ask for some outside input.

They made a lot of changes to the front end from last year. The 08 were bad they were hard to handle and you took so much of the blows to your arms. I agree i would test drive one befor buying. What makes you interested in a Nytro??

I drove an '09 this fall and that thing is awesome. I drove the Ski 4-stroke too and that things was also awesome. It would be a tough call between the two. I would look at that Ski too. It is lighter that the Nytro. Either way, both sleds pull HARD!

What makes you interested in a Nytro??

Yes, I do plan on driving it before making my decision. Your the 2nd person who has said that to me. Is it common for people to spend that sort of money and not even test drive it? That would be crazy!

Why am I interested? No specific reason really...other than I spoke to a couple of people who have tested it and gave it good reviews. It also seems that Yamaha has a good reputation with their 4-stroke engines. If I understand it correctly, its Yamaha's cross over sled.....good for trails and some powder...and that concept appeals to me.

I guess the dealership is just over the bridge and I spent an afternoon checking it out...and thought it looked like a nice sled. I am open to other sled suggestions... Thanks

A common complaint is that they off little wind protection and gets very cold riding one(even with the tall windshield and side deflectors). Handwarmers dont get very hot.

bad ice build up in the tunnel while power riding..some people are saying they get over 30 lbs of ice build up!!!!

lacks ski pressure..which hurts trail and cornering performance.

I was actually considering one before this season and now Im glad I didnt get one.

Not that this site doesn't have great responses but you should check out www ty4stroke com and read all you want. You'll find more actual users/owners on there. Everything that I've read/experienced, this would definitely be the sled I would buy right now.

    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
    • Beautiful pics as always Jim.
