General:Totallyamaha cannot fix your snowmobile warranty issues. You have to take your problems to the dealers. Please use the site to gather any info you may need. We recommend that you go see your dealer about warranty problems or any problems you think are warranty issue. We will not remove your complaint if you do choose to post but please put them in the correct area, suspension, electrical or what have you. This site is an open site with some very minor rules; please respect our decisions and your fellow Yamaha owners.

Yamaha does not own this site or any other site that is associated directly to Totallyamaha. Granted we do get occasional support from Yamaha as well as many other advertisers and get requests to do specific things but everything in some respect has a price. We are no sell out and will continue to look at it from the consumer side.

Redundant Posts: Please try and search the forum before asking questions on specific topics such as skis to use, stud qty’s or patterns and so on. Please see FAQ Forum section prior to asking questions. This will help keep the site nice and clean. Also we expect if a questions has been asked that you feel has been answered before please help the users search for that topic or send them in the right direction to find it. Remember you were new once also. Click the Search Function on the above menus.

Selling items:
Please use the classified section for all sales and wanted items. Please start prefacing your “For Saleâ€￾ posts with "FS" and your “Wantedâ€￾ items with “WBâ€￾ or "WTB". We highly recommend this to make it easier for others to read through the posts faster. If you do not start prefacing you classified posts, they may be removed. Only users that are NOT DEALERS/AFTERMARKET SHOPS are allowed to use this feature unless you are a paying advertiser. If you are a dealer and wish to sell on Totallyamaha you will need to contact webmaster@totallyamaha.com unless you are a paying advertiser. This is a benefit to you, as users please do not abuse it.

Due to the multiple Ebay adds being placed in the classifieds and creating bidding wars at no payback to Totallyamaha, we have made the decision to discontinue allowing users to post these ads. All Ebay ads will be removed from this date forward.

VIP Members and Ebay ads: In the near future we may be setting up a VIP only classifieds and Ebay Area. This will allow TY to provide more VIP privileges in the near Future.

NEW Selling/Posting RULE:
If any Company tries to sell on the site, they will be warned and be removed for 1 day, if they try to sell again behind the radar after being warned they will be removed.

Off Topic:
Please use Lounge for all 'Off-Topic' type posts relating to things other than Yamaha Related Info. If you choose to post in other sections of the site, be prepared to have them moved or removed. So please put topics in their proper areas, again this will make it easier to navigate through the forum.

Flaming/Bashing Users or Thread Hijacking:
Flaming/Bashing or being disrespectful to others/dealers/vendors etc.. will not be tolerated and will result in suspension of your account.

Posting with a certain degree of respect towards other members is mandatory on Totallyamaha

Hotly debated topics are sometimes the most fun, but if you resort to name calling or bashing you can expect a temporary suspension (or in rare cases permanent suspension) of your account.
We are expecting a very busy season, and it needs to be understood that the focus of this particular site is the enjoyable exchange of information. If your focus is to have your opinion be 'the opinion' then you may have a rough time of it. We all have the right to respectfully disagree with one another.

Bashing of advertisers will not be tolerated
Without proper funding, Totallyamaha would not exist and would not be available to you. Objective positive or negative discussions are encouraged. However if you do have a problem with a vendor, bring it up with them privately first so they are not blindsided by unexpected.
