Need parts for 1985 phazer!

Hey all! I'm new to the forums here...I'm needing some parts for a 1985 phazer I just picked up for my kids. Right now I really need the choke setup. The pull on mine is broke making it to where you can't pull it out...also needing a starter, seat, some body parts, ect. But I'll just have to buy as I can afford. Right now I'd really like to get my hands on the choke...anybody that can help me out I'd much appreciate it! Thank you!

There are lots of places to get parts. My rule of thumb is, if its a moving part I always buy new. What i mean is chokes, belt, tracks,wearbars, etc. I get from denniskirk.com ! If it's a non moving part then I get things on E-bay, such as seats, body parts, some carb parts, handle bars, etc. Hope this helps.

i seem to have an abundance of phazer parts. just about everything you need if not more. color differences will be the only factor. most notable for your situation would be an 86 model that only saw under 800 miles. it looks near new. all plastics are in excellent shape, track and skid is like new, seat is almost perfect, skis near perfect.

also have parts from 85, 88, and 91 phazer 2's. inquire with your needs. your probably finding out that yamaha is discontinuing many of the old sled parts.

on the cheap side, if your choke cable is still good, replacement levers are available at places like dennis kirk and others.

Do you have any of the Phazer engines? I got a Phazer that needs a new crankcase and jugs. Another motor would probably be easiest. If it needs rebuilt that is fine.

i have a complete runner, 2 crankcases, several cylinders and an extra crank. some i know the condition of, other parts are around for spares and would have to verify.

I got the Phazer home and started going through it. It has almost 13000 miles and seems to be pretty worn out. The front suspension needs rebuilt. I haven't decided if I should fix this one up or get one in better shape. The sled has a new camoplast track on it and a rebuilt rear skid. The rest is a little rough. Worth the 100 bucks but not sure if it's worth fixing up. Motor threw a rod through the block and the PTO jug and crankcase are trash. Any advice would be appreciated.

big question would be how bad do you want a phazer.

from your description, i would cut my losses and part the thing out.

on the flip side, you could easily invest at least another $500 in parts and misc and have a good runner without exceeding its value based on demographics.

around here, good running phazers in average shape will bring $5-6, more for mint condition. but, at 13k miles it seems a bit excessive. someone got their money's worth.

I really like the phazer's for their dependability. Besides, now I got a good track and a rebuilt rear skid for one. We don't get a lot of snow around here so I just wanna rebuild one and that way I know what I got. Another words I wanna ride when we do get the snow and not be in the garage tinkering all night. Hence my user name. I figure if I rebuild one then I should be good for several years other than the routine maintenance. I think I'll try to find another one with a bit less mileage. Thanks for your advice.

since you have one good rod, i can get you into a complete bottom end with one twisted rod, (runs great until the engine rotates at shut down and the rod slightly catches the crank journal)bearings seem good, and probably all the front end parts you need for under $300, plus shipping, if your interested.

steering components from an 86 with under 800 miles, engine with the twisted rod from an 88 under 3500 miles.

could also toss in another crank with one good rod and questionable bearings from an 87 for additional $$$.

trying to liquidate some unneeded phazer parts, going out of the phazer business. lots of pipes, carbs, clutches, gears, chaincases, gears, chains, etc. also have an aaen pipe available, not to mention plastics, panels, gauges, bars, etc.

That sounds pretty good. Let me sleep on all this and figure out which way I'm going to go. I'll be in touch in a day or two. I really really appreciate your help. Thanks again.

How much would the complete front suspension cost me from one of them phazer's you got. Maybe with and without skis. Plus shipping obviously. I found a good running motor for 300. Has 3000 miles with 130 compression on both cylinders. So i'm good on the motor now. Thanks again for your help.

care to narrow it down to some specific needs or are you thinking just cut the tubes and ship as a unit?

After reading a lot of articles I think I'm just going to start by replacing the bushings. Learning as I go. Are the front shocks rebuildable or not. One side seems to be froze up and won't move and the other side just floats up and down like a bobble head doll. Thanks again

What would you want for a front bumper for an 84-89 phazer. Those were bolt in i believe. At least that is the one i need. Mine is mangled up pretty good and looking for another one, at least in better shape than the one i got. And also how much for that aaen pipe.

I am restoring a phazer and am in the process of stripping the whole sled down to the frame and tunnel. I am concerned about taking all the wiring off the sled to repaint it all, do you have any advice or cautions of doing this. The sled had electric start but the engine i bought doesn't have the gear on the crank for the starter so i'm thinking that i can eliminate all of the wiring going to the starter. Any thoughts on this. I appreciate all your advice and help.

that harness is a complete unplug and remove affair, with or without electric start. the trick is to remember how it all goes back in with the metal tabs, zips, etc. pictures will be your friend here or at least some well taken notes. the rest is plug for plug and there really is no way to do that wrong.

most of the excess phazer parts are gone, pipe included. still have some engine parts at this point as well as some suspension parts both front and rear, and some miscelaneous parts. the bumper i have left is questionable depending on how bad yours is. if you havent removed it yet, you will figure out what a pain it is to get those out with that stabilizer bar welded to it. i can send a picture to an email if you want to compare.

I picture of what you have would be great if it ain't too much work. I don't wanna be a pain. I didn't think about the pain to get it out cause mine is already stripped down to nothing any way. Thanks for your input.
