My father is looking into the 99 or 00 Venture XL 500 fan(not sure on year)

He might be able to get a good deal,on a Venture with only 1300kms

Are there any problems with the newer Vmax chassis based Phazer/Ventures 485 fan engines?I know the older based 485s were bullit proof

I rode the 2000 Venture 500 LC and 700 ,so I know they are great sleds for 2up riding and 1up riding

He would only puts 500-800kms a year on a sled

He does not like to go over 100kmph so The fan 485 should be suffice.

He said he had my STX going over 120kmph but found it too fast LOL,I told him I had it over 160kmph on speedo and he said I was crazy

It would be nice to be able to go riding with him,cause right now he uses my sled when I am not in town


Like to hear from Phazer500 and Venture XL owners

Thanx in Advance

The engine which is the 485 is the same used in the phazer since the beginning of time, there should be no problems with it. There are a few modifications you can do to that motor, too ;)

i know for a fact that the new phazers are still bullet proof been hit 2 once by a car and the other by my cousin and hit a railroad switch that was buried and mine still looks almost new runs and handles great so i would say they are still bullet proof :withstupid:
