kneedragger, I agree with you 100%, I've worked for them and I don't tolerate that kind of shit from them. Just my point is that KNOWING this, I'd buy one if i was in the market, without being overly concerned about an inaccurate tach. it IS still the best bike in the class. But I wont be buying a new yamaha anything for a long while, to much shit from them lately.
the sled line has been butchered, it's a shadow of it's former glory, they've backpedalled at 10x the speed they've made progress, removing the banshee... I guess it was time, but if you're gonna pull it, we need a cheap and fast 2-stroke replacement for it. There refusal to build a 250 because "2-strokes have bad emmisions" when Bombardiers 2-stroke snowmobile engines have less emmisions and better mileage than yamaha's 4-strokes (so it can obviosly be done).
I will support the used market, but I wont be giving them another number to count.
