Hi all,

Took a 4 day trip to UP and Wisconsin this past weekend. Great time but first good trail ride Friday the CV joint at pass side rear wheel broke. Noticed my rear end squirlly on the throttle so went down to investigate and sure enough it was rattling inside the boot. Not a happy camper at that moment... 33 miles new motor... 300 miles new axle.... More to come to I'm sure due to a large m10/m12 bolt hanging out the bottom of skid plate I noticed while trailering back down state and the while in diff lock the front diff was clicking while under any kinda power.
So call the dealer yesterday to tell its coming in for service and he's too busy and cannot fit it in his shop until end of next week but that wasn't what set me off, it was the comment saying " well I don't what Yamaha gonna say". Well only words I better hear back from them is " I'm sorry " at minimum and would would a nice jester to say here is a $200 gift card for Yamaha accsy for the hassle.

I had the same cv go out. My dealer swapped it out and handed me a bill for $0.00. I am pretty sure my dealer is the best in the country!

Update. Dealer replaced the axle under warranty. I'm thinking because the boot had no rips or tears just broke inside boot.

Yep. Long story but to sum it up. Switched dealers and they got it done in 2 weeks Got it back June 24th Now back at dealer. Check engine light on , cracked floor boards, rear diff leaking at opp side of replaced axle.
