Premium Fox 1.5 QS3 Front Shocks

The Sidewinder X-TX LE front suspension is equipped with Fox QS3 shocks for a premium upgrade to this model. The Fox high-pressure gas, coil spring 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.

RaVersattack 146 'Uncoupled' Rear Suspension

The Dual Shock 146 rear suspension is fitted into a light mountain, tapered tunnel. It also features a mountain style front arm with special 146 inch rails that utilize a long rear QS3 shock and lightweight single pull rod. A specially designed, shock pivot is added to the uncoupled front arm to provide smooth weight transfer for great handling traction both in and out of the powder.

RaMountain Steering System

A dedicated, tall steering post delivers optimum ergonomics for standup riding. The 5.5 inch riser, with broad, molded, curved-end mountain bar and incorporated mountain strap delivers ample leverage for off-trail riding. The system is adjustable to dial in sweep and reach to help keep you in the sweet spot.

TOP

  • 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 industries highest achiever. This engine produces the potent venom in the Sidewinders bite.
  • The Sidewinder X-TX LE front suspension  is equipped with Fox Zero QS3 shocks for a premium upgrade to this model. The Fox high-pressure gas, coil spring 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. 
  • The Dual Shock 146 rear suspension is fitted into a light mountain, tapered tunnel. It also features a mountain style front arm with special 146 inch rails that utilize a long rear QS3 shock with a lightweight single pull rod. A unique design, shock pivot is added to the uncoupled front arm to provide smooth transfer for great handling both in and out of the powder.       
  • Blending the best of on-trail bite and off-trail flotation and traction, the 146 inch by 1.6- inch lug Cobra™ track is a key contributor to X-TX LE versatile make-up. The 146 length combined with the unique Cobra lug pattern give the X-TX a good balance between cornering grip and straight line acceleration with excellent deep snow flotation.
  • 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.

 

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 9 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 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 — something that is 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, always at the ready for the next acceleration with seamless power delivery.
  • A dual-piston brake caliper applies braking forces directly to the drive shaft and is mated to an wave-style, lightweight drilled rotor. The LE-Only rotor removes 1lb of rotating mass from the vehicles 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 full width ski stance applied to the LE is targeted towards aggressive corner speeds with flat handling characteristics.
  • A dedicated, tall steering post delivers optimum ergonomics for standup riding. The 5.5 inch riser, with broad, molded, curved-end mountain bar and incorporated mountain strap delivers ample leverage for off-trail riding. The system is adjustable to dial in sweep and reach to help keep you in the sweet spot.
  • The Yamaha design, 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 unique 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.

COMFORT

  • Lightweight, with a tall and narrow profile, the X-TX mountain seat is both shorter and more tapered towards the front than our standard trail seat. This allows for easier rider transitions from side-to-side, and improved stand-up ergonomics.  Included in-seat electric heat element for additional comfort in the cold and wet.
  • The Sidewinder's generous 10 gallon / 38 liter fuel tank serves more purposes than just carrying a day's worth of fuel. It also cradles the battery and is the platform for the quick-release trail seat. The ever-changing fuel load is carried low and rearward, helping centralize the overall mass and balance of the sled.
  • The handle bar controls feature a left hand switch cluster which allows for 'on the fly' access to the multi-step hand and thumb warmer adjusters. Information available on the multi-function gauge can be easily selected with a convenient toggle switch and the push button reverse gear switch is also located in the left hand cluster. The right side of the bar is clean with an ergonomically shaped throttle lever and simple, stand-alone emergency stop switch. The Hayes 'Stealth' brake cylinder is equipped with a composite brake lever providing great modulation for better feel and powerful stopping performance.
  • Additional storage is provided by a convenient under-seat bag. It's semi-rigid design makes it easy to access and is water resistant to keep your spares safe and dry. Quarter-turn, quick release fasteners are provided to make removal a snap.
  • Convenient handlebar positioning makes shifting to and from reverse easy with just the push of your thumb. A servo motor shifts the drivetrain into reverse simply and consistently. An audible warning beeper reminds you when you are still in reverse.
