Coming from an 03.5 Blair Morgan Rev 800 here for 4 years and I'm more than happy with the switch to the FX Nytro RTX. To sum it up, the FX Nytro is everything the Rev is and much more. The power is better, the fuel mileage is better, the shocks/suspension is better, the ergos are better, and it has Yamaha quality and dependability. I honestly can't say a single bad thing about my Rev though, it was an incredible and tough sled that never let me down, however, the FX Nytro is just several steps ahead, more than likely due to advances in technology over the years. If you buy an FX Nytro and plan to do some off-trail riding, I recommend a track upgrade and a wider ski upgrade. You might want to upgrade the handwarmers to RSI's as well.

Good Luck[/b]
Just wondering if anyone has tried these as fix for the Handwarmers on any of the '06 and Newer Yamies

I've got them
I dont know if I hooked them up wrong or what but they dont seem to work the best(no better then the stock ones).
Then again i dont got the gaunlets or big handgaurds I just got powermadd handgaurds so that might make a difference.

Just picked up a new 09 XTX yesterday I have been on artic cats for awhile, I hear everyone on here saying yamaha hand warmers suck so I went out and started my XTX to check out the hand warmers. I put the hand warmers and thumb warmer on high and they don't seem to work. There is some heat but not enough to do anything and it is 45*F . This can't be right is something wrong with it or is this what everyone is talking about? Does yamaha have a fix for this or do I need to find a fix? What are you guys doing to fix it? I can't believe yamaha would slack on something so important as hand warmers everything else seems to be built so well. Thanks for any help.

All my customers that have purchased them from us have reported they work GREAT! I personally have not needed to try them on my 09 Polaris.

they work onlt above 4500rpm if I'm not mistaken and if you hit the breaks the go out the warmers are not great but do work on mine specially if you're running hard the harder the better they work and buy good gloves to I used some gaunlets I had laying around and was able to ride in jersey gloves so they do work but they catch so much air it fells like they don't just my opinion

Yes the warmers suck!
No, Yamaha isn't doing anything to help the 08 and 09 buyers, but they are doing something for the 2010 line.

I'm considering getting Rockmeister's kit over at TY. apparently the reviews are great. See the thread here:
