07 phazer

I bought my phazer new this season and put 8400kms on it, I am very satisfied with the reliability of it, and a bracket in the suspension and a ball joint are the only problems that I have had so far, and I plan on keeping it for a few more seasons because it really isnt worth anything to sell or trade in. Is it all downhill from here? or are these thing preety bulletproof?

I wouldnt call them bulletproof. I know Yamaha has had some problems with them. The rear suspension links break, the balljoints wear out quickly, they are known for shearing the teeth off of the flywheel, the starters are known for failing, they have crank bearing issues in some cases and they are known for fouling plugs frequently.
They also have issues with the rear part of the tunnel bending if you back over the snowflap. Its pretty easy to back over the snowflap when backing off of a trailer, backing down a ramp while unloading the sled from your truck or even when backing down any kind of a steep incline. The tunnel is pretty weak in that area and it doesnt take much to back over the snowflap and bend the rear part of the tunnel.
I almost bought an '07 Phazer FX 2 years ago and now Im glad I didnt buy it. Dont get me wrong, I love the Phazer but its got too many issues and there is too much potential for very expensive repairs in the long run.
