Top Features
  • NEW 998cc Genesis Turbo Engine: The new Genesis 998 Turbo 3-cylinder engine delivers 800-class dominating performance in a compact package. The high tech engine system carries a full suite of features to ensure you have a great day on the snow and a fun night when you reach your destination. We use our advanced nine-sensor engine management system to control fuel flow for maximum performance, but it also incorporates a knock sensor to adjust ignition timing and even manifold pressure if the need should arise.
  • High Tech Turbo: 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.
  • NEW YSRC Clutching: Yamaha has well over a decade of experience in harnessing the unique power delivery of a high performance four stroke engine. For the hyper performance Sidewinder R-TX LE, we have developed a new YSRC roller secondary system to deliver aggressive upshifting while also backshifting quickly to keep you in the power. In addition, we slightly upsized the new secondary to overshift and let the Sidewinder R-TX LE stretch its legs on a long lake run.
  • NEW Fox 1.5 Zero RC Shocks: The new Fox 1.5 Zero RC shocks on the Sidewinder R-TX SE front suspensions feature an adjustable coil spring, and a clicker adjustment that change both compression and rebound rate. They are fully rebuildable.
  • Dual Shock SR 129 Rear Suspension: The drop-link style Dual Shock SR 129 rear suspension is the next generation result of years of punishment and development in snocross and cross-country competition. The incredibly stout, yet lightweight design allows riders to drive hard into the most demanding and unsuspecting terrain while retaining the utmost level of control. The SR 129 is a “coupled” suspension that utilizes a unique “sliding” front arm mount. With up to half-inch of movement at the front arm “slot”, the system allows the suspension to deliver controlled (reduced) ski-lift during acceleration while still retaining front arm bump compliance.
  • Tuner III Skis: Our Deep Keel Tuner III Skis are engineered specifically for the SRV Chassis and the unique characteristics of the Sidewinder R-TX LE. They deliver reduced ski-pressure and near effortless steering; and the dual keel design delivers an assured "bite" in the corners with reduced darting. The design also allows you to customize the handling and feel of your sled with easy to change carbide runners in a variety of insert lengths for the inner and outer keel.
Performance
  • NEW 998cc Genesis Turbo Engine: The new Genesis 998 Turbo 3-cylinder engine delivers 800-class dominating performance in a compact package. The high tech engine system carries a full suite of features to ensure you have a great day on the snow and a fun night when you reach your destination. We use our advanced nine-sensor engine management system to control fuel flow for maximum performance, but it also incorporates a knock sensor to adjust ignition timing and even manifold pressure if the need should arise.
  • NEW Mitsubishi ECU: The Yamaha-developed Mitsubishi ECU uses a series of 9 sensors to gather running condition data and computes using its predetermined memory ‘map’. It then adjusts ignition timing, fuel delivery, manifold air-pressure and turbo boost pressure to produce maximum performance - reliably.
  • NEW YSRC Clutching: Yamaha has well over a decade of experience in harnessing the unique power delivery of a high performance four stroke engine. For the hyper performance Sidewinder R-TX LE, we have developed a new YSRC roller secondary system to deliver aggressive upshifting while also backshifting quickly to keep you in the power. In addition, we slightly upsized the new secondary to overshift and let the Sidewinder R-TX LE stretch its legs on a long lake run.
  • NEW Triple Throttle Bodies: Yamaha engineers wanted to develop a turbo so smooth and so quick to respond that it doesn’t feel like a conventional turbo. One of the ways they achieved their goal was to develop the intake system using three separate throttle bodies instead of just one- something that is not seen in any other production turbo on the planet. And another first for Yamaha with the Genesis turbo.
  • NEW Connecting Rod: Special, light weight, hardened carburized steel connecting rod design has the optimum strength required to produce maximum power. This new turbo-specific rod design uses nutted studs to join the closetolerance, machined-faced big end. The rods are also treated with a special Defric coating for cold start protection, to ensure long life and maximum reliability.
  • Hayes Performance Brakes: A dual-piston brake caliper applies braking forces directly to the drive shaft and is mated to an oversized, lightweight drilled rotor. The unique radial brake master cylinder helps to deliver consistent "feel" in a wide variety of conditions while the oversized lever delivers greater braking force and feel with reduced effort.
Handling
  • Lightweight SRV Front Suspension: The over-structure design of the SRV chassis creates a rigid mounting point for the unique 30-degree swept design of the SRV front suspension. The “angled” mounting design directs impacts back to the strongest points of the chassis, creating a more stable and predictable ride. Tall, lightweight forged spindles help to deliver an incredibly strong front suspension with controlled camber geometry for stability and light steering effort.
  • Tuner III Skis: Our Deep Keel Tuner III Skis are engineered specifically for the SRV Chassis and the unique characteristics of the Sidewinder R-TX LE. They deliver reduced ski-pressure and near effortless steering; and the dual keel design delivers an assured "bite" in the corners with reduced darting. The design also allows you to customize the handling and feel of your sled with easy to change carbide runners in a variety of insert lengths for the inner and outer keel.
  • Dual Shock SR 129 Rear Suspension: The drop-link style Dual Shock SR 129 rear suspension is the next generation result of years of punishment and development in snocross and cross-country competition. The incredibly stout, yet lightweight design allows riders to drive hard into the most demanding and unsuspecting terrain while retaining the utmost level of control. The SR 129 is a “coupled” suspension that utilizes a unique “sliding” front arm mount. With up to half-inch of movement at the front arm “slot”, the system allows the suspension to deliver controlled (reduced) ski-lift during acceleration while still retaining front arm bump compliance.
  • SRV Chassis: Sophisticated aluminum extrusions are joined with precision castings to create an incredibly strong, lightweight and rider intuitive chassis. The over-structure design provides rigidity and is designed to disperse severe impacts throughout the chassis making it exceptionally resilient.
  • Conjoined Rear Wheel-Set: A composite rear axle hub assembly is conjoined into a single hub design, making it both lighter and stronger than two separate wheels, resulting in less un-sprung weight for a more responsive rear suspension.
Comfort
  • Heated Trail Seat: Cut through the chill of a cold winter’s day with our high-comfort heated seat, offering low and high heat settings easily toggled by a dash-mounted control.
  • Goggle Bag: A standard, dash mounted storage bag is perfect for storing an extra pair of goggles or other small items. A meshed bottom allows engine heat to warm the bag and dry out goggles.
  • Digital Gauge Package: The deluxe gauge package touts large, easy to read black on white digits, making it easy to keep track of vehicle and engine diagnostics. The easy to operate, technology packed display includes coolant temperature, exhaust temperature, intake air temperature, voltage, along with speed, rpm, altimeter, clock, fuel level, trip meters, and much more.
  • Push Button Reverse: Standard push button reverse actuates a servo-controlled reverse gear providing both comfort and convenience.
  • LED Taillight: The high-intensity LED taillight/brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design, and delivers a significantly longer lifespan.
