Description:


The Sidewinder L-TX GT EPS has earned a reputation among seasoned, high-mileage riders for its rock-solid performance and practical comfort. The addition of Yamaha's Variable Electric Power Steering (EPS) rewrites the definition of a top trail-performance snowmobile. 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.


FEATURES

COMFORT

  • The medium smoked polycarbonate windshield was designed to shield the high-mileage rider from the coldest days. The windshield incorporates a small lip at the top to deflect wind and snow up and over the rider at speed, while flared edges provided added protection and warmth for your hands. The GT windshield was also designed to accommodate optional mirrors. The windshield is thicker than standard windshields to reduce mirror vibration at speed and features pre-marked indents for an easy installation of the accessory mirrors.
  • A convenient heated visor DC RCA outlet is accompanied by a DC socket style plug to power up or charge your devices simultaneously.
  • A standard heated seat provides the ultimate in warmth and comfort on even the coldest winter days. A simple flip of the dash-mounted switch enables the choice of two warmth settings, allowing you to explore what lies beyond that next curve from sun-up to sundown in complete comfort.
  • Full-featured and easy to read, the digital gauge displays critical information in a glance including speed, fuel level, trip mileage, tach, elevation, temperatures and more. Changing functions is made easy with the switch controls on the left handlebar. We even included a clock so you can watch the time fly.
  • Convenient handlebar positioning makes starting, 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.
  • Additional storage is provided by a convenient tunnel bag. The semi-rigid design is easy to access and water resistant to keep your spares safe and dry. Quarter-turn, quick release fasteners are provided to make removal a snap.

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 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.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

TOP FEATURES

  • YAMAHA VARIABLE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING - 'EPS': Yamaha introduced EPS for snowmobiles in 2011 pioneering the innovative technology that both reduces steering effort and increases steering precision. The newest generation has reduced weight by over three pounds and incorporates a ‘brushless’ DC motor. No brushes to wear out means greater reliability and much better thermal performance or ability to maintain full output power for longer periods of time. Variable assist EPS utilizes a magnetic torque sensor to measure steering input based on torsion or 'twist' of the steering post resulting from handlebar input combined with ski resistance. The contactless, magnetic torque sensor supplies this data to an integrated control module which in turn, signals the brushless servo-motor to assist the steering through its powered, worm-gear drive assembly. The system also provides engine RPM and vehicle speed data to the control module which calibrates for increased assistance at lower speeds then tapers off as the vehicle accelerates giving a more balanced, natural feel or 'connection' to the terrain. When the skis encounter an abrupt force that works against the steering input, the torque sensor alerts the control module to apply additional assistance to counteract or 'resist' the negative input. This effectively reduces the steering effort required while enhancing predictability for greater rider confidence and less fatigue.
  • GT SERIES WIND DEFLECTOR: The medium smoked polycarbonate windshield was designed to shield the high-mileage rider from the coldest days. The windshield incorporates a small lip at the top to deflect wind and snow up and over the rider at speed, while flared edges provided added protection and warmth for your hands. The GT windshield was also designed to accommodate optional mirrors. The windshield is thicker than standard windshields to reduce mirror vibration at speed and features pre marked indents for an easy installation of the accessory mirrors.
  • STRYKE' SINGLE KEEL SKI: The Yamaha designed single keel ski, combined with the EPS system, strikes the elusive balance between lightweight steering effort and precise handling throughout a wide range of snow conditions. Unique, staggered carbides further enhance steering response. A special shim pad assembly for EPS 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.
