well after what seemed like months of searching i found a new gear straight from yahmaha. the top sproket in my chain case has 17 tooth. For the 1991 phazer 2 yamaha only made a sproket that went one tooth down to a 16. This was the only place i could find that even had such a thing so i bought it even though it ran me nearly $70!!!! so it should b in on thuesday so if everything goes good i should be taking my sled for its first rip by next weekend! i just hope one tooth will be good enough?

you'll need to get a new chain. stock one wont fit if you're dropping a tooth on the top and not adding one to the bottom. need to get a chain with 1 less link.

Mine - 1989 Yamaha Phazer 485 w/ Comet 102C and boyesen power reeds. 14,356 kms.

Dads - 1997 Yamaha V-max XT 600 stock w/ polaris P-85 clutch

Brothers - on its way home soon! either a yamaha or skidoo. not sure what yet.


First ride of the 2009/2010 season - 11/12/09
09/10 km's - over 1200. pretty good for only half a seasons worth of riding.

that would really depend how many teeth the bottom sprocket has. there are alot of variations for gears based on chain length. and yamaha chains change in 2 link increments. you would have a very hard time finding one with one link less. confirm teeth on the bottom gear and i will give you the proper chain length.

i could check the gear chart in my manual for what bottom gears you can run with a 16 top gear and what length chain. but it's out in the shop right now. can post tomorrow if it'd be any help. if he's running the stock lower gear im pretty sure its a 29. i cant remember the stock chain length at the moment. somewhere in the low to mid 60's.

16/29 and 17/29 both use the 64 link chain.
