Yamaha, in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling about 5.700 2007 Model Year PZ50 Snowmobiles because snow and ice can get stuck around the steering idler arm and can cause a loss of steering ability. This poses a risk of injury or even death to drivers and passengers if an accident occurs.
This recall involves all model year 2007 PZ50 snowmobiles, including PZ50W (Phazer), PZ50FXW (Phazer FX), PZ50GTW (Phazer GT), PZ50MW (Phazer Mountain Lite), and PZ50VTW (Venture Lite) model snowmobiles.
So far there have been no injuries reported to Yamaha or the CPSC. The snowmobiles were available in Yamaha stores nationwide from June 2006 to September 2007 and were manufactured in Japan.
