Extremely common obviously. :mad: I have been through two on my 2008 Nytro MTX. There are some stiffeners you can add to the OEM which is what I did. They were offering a new upgraded one from Yamaha but it was still a little weak. I believe that (T-Nytro) on here has some made up already. After I did a little modifying it has stood up well. I hit a tree late in the season and sheared the ski right off bent the A-arms and no sub frame damage. Good Luck.

Cheers,:beer:

hitting a tree will probably bend an 09 too. Something has to give ;) Could have been worse I guess. You know we'll help you Sledslut :rolleyes: but you have to look where you're going:d

We're all a little twisted somewhere!!!:d
It's just the same as the early rev's.......flying nuns took the damaged instead of bending A arms. Wish it wasn't such a big job to fix it though,. Maybe get mine repaired this year too

Sledslut have you tried tightening the bolts on your front suspension. maybe something is loose and throwing it outta wack. dont be afraid of a wrench buddy. lol

thats funny.. but it was one loose bolt, but something is still a little bent
looks to only be the one lower control arm. so happy about that too!!:o:o
