Yamaha recalled about 5,700 Phazer machines Wednesday due to a problem with the steering system. Owners are advised to stop using their machines until a free repair is performed.
Snow and ice might collect around the steering idler arm, which could cause drivers to lose control. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the problem.
Machines affected are the 2007 Phazer, Phazer FX, Phazer GT, Phazer Mountain Lite and Venture Lite.
Registered owners have been notified by mail about the recall and are advised to schedule a repair with their Yamaha snowmobile dealer.
