Yamaha is dead last in sales because they get replaced every 10-15 years until they die where as other manufacture's only last 3-4 years before blowing motors etc.

I'm not real sure what your point is. Or this could be a side of the coin. Ford out sells Ferrari, but I find Ferrari's more appealing than Ford's.
Does haveing the no. 1 selling sled, mean you have the world by the ass? So that means you have the no.1 selling GM, no sorry the toyota of snowmobiles.

It seems the bread truck is a little bite faster then the sled than sounds like forestry equipment.

They may want to try and stay close to the bread truck and follow the crumbs to get home after break downs or if reverse is needed

Like "Y" hasn't had issues with there sleds, idler wheels, hyfax issues, "W" arms, lack of zerk fittings, reverse issues,etc.Alot of you guys need to revisit that search engine on "TY" and remind yourselves of the frustration you guys have had over the last 6 years.

I've come off a "Y" as well 03 RX1 but after stomping my dealers 07 Apex whats the point of an upgrade, so here I sit on the fence looking at all the manufacturers and notice that all are moving forward except 1.

Like I said before I do not want a parts bin special and thats the direction "Y" is going, hence the non piggy back shocks on there so called "new" model the nytro 1.75, "WAJ" not to mention there groundbreaking "EPS" and "EXUP" all taken from a parts bin! So to me there is nothing innovative about that.

You forgot about the exhaust donuts. I have had issues with what you said, but never reverse, yet. I just sold my 06 apex with 21700 miles on it and did have the to replace slides wheels and weld gussets to my front arm(before it had a chance to break). One y pipe and a few sets of donuts. Not to much else went wromg with it. Also never been towed.
I replaced it with a 07 apex with 15000 less miles. Should be good for a few years yet.
I had less problems with the 06 over 6 and a half winters, than a few local guys have with thier 2012 f1100's.
Inovation is great, people cry for light weight, yeah thats great, for the expense of durability and reliability.
