Default Rollover valve/tether

Anyone install one of these?? SMA-TETHR-00-00 $185.00
http://blog.yamahagenuineparts.com/2...er-switch.html
Daughter dumped her 07' Phazer on its left side and pinned the trottle WFO. Before she could get it shutdown it had puked oil all over the place. Hoping no engine damage as there is still "some" oil left in the tank.

Seems like a dumbfawk move on Yammis part to not at least have that valve in place. Let alone the tether, which I think should be a FACTORY INSTALLED item on all sleds and not offered as an "option".
Now to clean up this fawking mess.

The yammi guys I run with all run with rollover valves just for that reason. Our sleds spend alot of time upside down. They all run oft's valve since the owner of oft is a local rider. They work great. No experience with other brands but imagine you will get the same results. Keeping the oil in the motor!

Well this is just STUPID BEYOND STUPID!!!

Called dealer today about the tethers and come to find out Yamahhahaa has discontinued these. WTF why would you do that to a safety part?? I don't get it. He was able to find me 1 and I found the other one online. So thankfully I will get both sleds outfitted.

Found out that OFT Racing only makes the tether without the rollover valve for the Phazer.

And ya Mule, I get that not many run Yammy's around BCR but if I can put some info out there for the few that do have em....... good on me. Kinda like you giving info on the road/trail/asphalt compacting machine Polaris called the 900 Hope any info helps the site and other peeps

A roll over valve and tether are a must for any four stroke sled.

Glad to hear it wasn't worse man! Really would have sucked if it was.

Got the OEM Yamaha valve kit installed. The instructions were for a Nytro so couple things were a bit different but not bad. Hardest part was locating the kill switch harness which on the Phazer it is located on the right side between the headlight and the coolant res bottle. You are looking for a 2 wire black plug with brown and brown/white wires, you plug in the tether between this plug, (red wires with white plugs). From there install the tether as normal. Other issue is having to remove dam near all the front body panels. Rest of the included instructions were good and easy to follow. Be sure to keep all wires tied back and away from brake disk and radiator fan blade.
The valve itself goes inline with the elbow fitting on top of the tank and sits right on top of the coolant line that crosses over the oil tank, (blag tall deal with blue wire fitting). I found it easier to remove the top 2 bolts holding the oil tank on to get to the clamps on the valve and get it set in place. Then put oil tank bolts back in. Make sure the valve is as strait up as possible.

The other kit I received today from Four Stroke Solutions LLC. It is very similar to the Yammy kit so it should be simple install too.

Note... www.fourstrokesolutions.com has these kits available for all Yammy's and the Cat M1100.

Installed the fourstrokesolutions.com valve last night on sled #2. Gotta say they make a very nice kit. The harness is so much cleaner and easier to install. Valve also sits better over the coolant line than the OEM Yammy kit. I also like the flashing led light that indicates the valve is closed when the tether is pulled. Little extra reminder I guess.
