Description

 The Sidewinder L‑TX LE with EPS has the power and suspension to devour whatever the terrain throws at you. The addition of power steering enhances control, bolstering your confidence to ride deeper into corners while reducing the steering effort found in other muscle sleds to that of a lightweight fan. Premium Fox QS3 shocks up front keep you hooked up while the dual QS3 shock skid handles the bumps with authority. The wide ski stance is balanced by a 137‑inch RipSaw II track for stable agility on the trail. This L‑TX package represents the absolute best all‑rounder in a top‑performing Yamaha trail sled.

Features

Top Features

  • Fox Zero QS3 1.5-inch Front Shocks The Fox Zero QS3 shocks, coil-over shock features a piggyback chamber to deliver reduced fading, exceptional control, and three easy-to-adjust compression damping performance settings so you can quickly and easily adjust the ride to conditions and riding preference.
  • Stryke' Single Keel Ski The Yamaha designed single keel ski strikes the elusive balance between lightweight steering effort and precision handling over a wide range of snow conditions. Special staggered carbides further enhance steering response. A special shim pad assembly works in conjunction with the rubber saddle block to adjust the carbide pressure point. Overall ski stance is also adjustable by relocating the thick spacer located on each ski axle to the opposite side.
  • NEW! EPS EPS takes the fight out of muscling the powerful turbo through twisty trails—but it doesn't stop there. EPS also isolates the rider from unwanted handlebar resistance fed back through the mechanical steering system from inconsistencies in the trail. The resulting light steering effort and handling precision is unrivaled when it comes to long days in the saddle. Suspension comfort, responsive throttle and reliable power top the list of priorities for long distance rides.

Comfort

  • The turbo boosted, one-liter triple is unmatched when it comes to delivering incredible power with the refinement and quality you have come to expect from a Yamaha. Designed around a premium turbo unit, every engine component from intake to exhaust, is dedicated to producing uncompromised performance. The proven Yamaha turbo has earned the respect and reputation befitting the industry's highest achiever. This engine produces the potent venom in the Sidewinder's bite.
  • The ARCS front suspension features tall, high-strength, forged alloy spindles and lightweight upper A-arms. The geometry is designed to optimize suspension function while increasing ground clearance. This results in greater bite with less chassis roll for more predictable and consistent handling.
  • The Yamaha designed single keel ski strikes the elusive balance between lightweight steering effort and precision handling over a wide range of snow conditions.
  • Unique, staggered carbides further enhance steering response.
  • A special shim pad assembly works in conjunction with the rubber saddle block to adjust the carbide pressure point.
  • Overall ski stance is also adjustable by relocating the thick spacer located on each ski axle to the opposite side.

Performance

  • The nickel alloy turbine body is extremely strong and precise, able to withstand highly elevated temperatures. Supported by premium, ceramic ball bearings, the Inconel turbine blade assembly is very light and strong. This yields a low moment of inertia for lightning quick response to exhaust gas input. Triple throttle bodies are used exclusively to further enhance the quick delivery of compressed air from the impeller to intake valves.
  • The Yamaha-developed Mitsubishi ECU uses a series of nine sensors to gather running condition data which it computes using a predetermined memory ‘map’. It then adjusts ignition timing, fuel delivery, manifold air pressure and turbo boost pressure to produce maximum performance under any condition—reliably.
  • Yamaha engineers wanted an engine that's exceptionally quick to respond with little or no 'lag' as found in a conventional turbo. One of the ways they achieved their goal was to develop an intake system using three separate throttle bodies positioned very close to the intake valves, instead of just one feeding long intake tubes. It’s an innovation not seen in any other production turbo on the planet, and another first for Yamaha with the Genesis turbo.
  • Unlike conventional turbo 'blow-off' valves, the Yamaha ABV redirects air pressure back into the intake side of the compressor to prevent surge and help maintain impeller speed, resulting in ready acceleration and seamless power delivery.
  • The YSRC primary and roller secondary clutches are calibrated for durable, cool operation. They harness and transfer the massive torque produced by the Genesis Turbo efficiently to the track while minimizing drive belt wear. The primary shifts out aggressively to use all the power on tap while the roller secondary is quick to back-shift and provides additional ratio through its oversize sheaves to keep accelerating long after the others have signed off.
  • A dual-piston brake caliper applies braking forces directly to the drive shaft and is mated to a wave-style, lightweight drilled rotor. The LE-only rotor removes one pound of rotating mass from the vehicle's driveline, helping transfer all of the Sidewinder's available horsepower to the snow. The 'Stealth' master cylinder and composite 'Stealth' brake lever offer excellent modulation and feel with ergonomically precise operation.
  • Engine coolant is circulated through the turbocharger to control both under-hood temperature and help cool the intake charge. Upon engine shut down, the convection energy produced by super-heated coolant at the turbo head keeps it circulating without the coolant pump in operation. This eliminates the need for an engine cool-down cycle while maintaining high durability in the turbo components.

Handling

  • The SRV chassis layout was engineered with the goal of centralizing mass. Approximately 60 percent of the sled's weight is tightly centered within the main triangulation. The result is a quick-handling, well-balanced sled that's fun to throw around in a wide variety of conditions.
  • The SRV chassis combines a load-bearing triangulated structure with lightweight aluminum construction to create a neutrally balanced sled that's centered on the rider. The pyramidal upper frame creates chassis strength without excessive weight.
  • The Yamaha designed single keel ski strikes the elusive balance between lightweight steering effort and precision handling over a wide range of snow conditions.
  • Unique, staggered carbides further enhance steering response.
  • A special shim pad assembly works in conjunction with the rubber saddle block to adjust the carbide pressure point.
  • Overall ski stance is also adjustable by relocating the thick spacer located on each ski axle to the opposite side.
  • The straight steering post on the Sidewinder is configured over the engine. It connects to a single bell crank for simplicity and lightweight. The design also minimizes free-play in the steering system and delivers a tight turning radius.
