I just got my 2016 Viper XTX SE back from the dealership this afternoon — Yamaha SR Viper Owners

I just got my 2016 Viper XTX SE back from the dealership this afternoon. I bought it new just before the new year as a hold over and really liked it. Also bought a Sidewinder and got hooked on the power and strong pull. Long story short, they had an MPI trail turbo that I had them put on it as well as replacing the weak rods. I had them put on the Ulmer clutch kit with the weights preset from Ulmer as well. Had to pick it up after hours today and it was already loaded in my trailer.

I noticed it turned over a couple seconds longer before starting and idled rough. It spits and sputters and doesn't start to smooth out until about 5000 rpm and is boggy on acceleration and has a hard time to hit 8000rpm. Obviously something is not right. Was told they drove it and it ran good although he claims to not have opened it up as they were treating as a new engine.

My 11 year old son wanted to drive it and he even asked , "what did they do to it? It runs like crap!"

Obviously will be calling the dealer Monday morning and hoping it is something easy. I a bit angry and disappointed.

Any thoughts?

    I may have missed it since I have only been a member for a few months. I bought a 2015 turbo viper. I plan on getting the razor skis since nearly all reviews say the stock tuners are not the best. We ride 100% trails here in central Wisconsin. Just curious I see some prior came with coil over shocks and the newer is QS3, my LTX came with Fox floats,I've read that the floats did not get the best reviews for trail. What would be the best for aggressive trail riding? We have some fields but alot of sharp twisty in the woods. What is the best setup for suspension. I have read if they are set up properly they are right there at the top and one of the best for a trail sled. Who has changed theirs up? What works good?

      Ok enough interest in an adjustable version of the COTC lets do this Message... — Yamaha SR Viper Owners

      Ok enough interest in an adjustable version of the COTC, lets do this. Message me for my PayPal address to put a $50.00 deposit on your set, production run is expected in a week or two.

      NOTE: Until the first custom run is manufactured I have 7 sets I can alter here and send out, price on these would be $240.00. Only difference is a slight change to the ramp that I grind here. If you wish to be first 7 message me and I will send you my PayPal address. If me custom grinding these bothers you please wait for the production run that should happen in a week or two.

      The pricing I have from vendors if it stays the same would allow me to sell this kit for $260.00. That would include the magnetic adjustable weights and the primary spring. The rest of the parts needed are your stock parts.

      I am asking the vendor to make a special Stingray Mods cut on the clutch weight ramp, based on the same weights I ran last year cut the way I liked it. I am not trying to get rich (you can tell by the pricing) but am trying to pay for my testing and excess testing parts...lol

      Two different versions,

      1. HARD START = Stiffer spring engages at about 3500to 3600 and takes off fairly hard for guys that run studs or just like the fun of the harder take off. $260.00.

      2.SOFT START = Kit with soft start spring shimmed for 3k rpm take off and smooth all the way through. Add $30.00 for this setup to the above $260.00 for a total of $290.00

      TURBO:

      These weights will go from 57 grams to 78 grams so most turbo applications will be covered. I strongly suggest you add the reverse helix for turbo applications to make the turbo boost sooner and shift faster after boost (I run a reverse helix on my turbo) Noticeable increase in testing especially on take off to 40mph. Add $99.00 for helix to above $260.00 if you wish to add the reverse helix - total with helix = $359.00 or buy your reverse helix from your favorite vendor it is a 40/46.

      ADD ONS

      1. STRONGLY SUGGESTED - You run an 8DN belt instead of the stock 8JP belt. Most of you are already running the 8DN so it is not included in this kit.

        2015 Viper XTX SE and Snow Pro Trailer — Yamaha SR Viper Owners

        Selling my New this year Yamaha Viper XTX SE and my enclosed Sno Pro trailer.

        The sled is all stock with added Scratchers. It's the 141" track with the 2" paddle..

        It has 330 miles on it and has the Yamaha extended transferable warranty until 2021.

        The trailer is 2 years old and is in perfect condition. I installed led lighting and a switch inside. It also comes with another matching aluminum rim.

        I've been a snowmobile enthusiast my whole life and this year was pretty much my last straw. To much time and money invested with zero snow to enjoy..

        This is a great deal as a package..

        If you are wondering, those 330 miles are all trail with some off trail powder in the UP..

        It has zero issues with the 2" paddle on the trail and it really holds it own in the powder..

        The scratchers kept the slides well lubricated. I've attached a photo of the scratchers and the custom install so they don't scratch the rails when not in use.

          Coming up on 4200 miles on my 16 LTX LE and am finding that the front a-arm bushings are starting to get some slop in them. Also found a crack in the header heat shield under the fuel tank and the left grip warmer stopped working Friday. Anyone else finding similar issues with this kind of milage? Other things I should be looking for? Fortunately I snochecked it so I have another season with a full warranty. Thanks for your insight and happy trails to you!

              Question for guys selling vipers. If someone was standing in front of you ready to count out cash, what would your selling price be? Reason I ask, my father has been talking this year about upgrading his rx-1, he has an apex he'd still keep. Just mainly curious what guys will actually sell their vipers for. Rtx or ltx and the closer to stock the better. Obviously I'm asking spring time end of the year cash prices on a used machine, we know how cheap we can a brand new left over for.

                  Roll Over Protection for your Turbo

                  Arctic Cat XF/M 7000 and Yamaha SR Viper

                  Jacobson valve is designed to prevent oil loss during a rollover event of a four stroke powered ATV or snowmobile.

                  The oil can leak out the oil tank (dry sump) or crankcase (wet sump engines).

                  If the engines are running the oil can leak out faster thru breather hoses. These valves shut off the breather hose to stop the engine from leaking oil and also stop the engine for safety concerns.

                  A tether is connected to the rider so if the rider falls off it shuts off the machine and closes the shut off valve to stop and oil from leaking out of the engine.

                  Starting Bid $50.00

                      I was just wondering if there are any Viper owners that take their machines out in the steep and deep powder that have been having a hard time? I have found and ordered a kit that I believe will really "lighten up" the feel of the Viper for tipping and turning called the Barcode 365 kit. It makes our big heavy 4-strokes turn much more easily, lean over and actually decreases the turning radius as well. The kit narrows the Vipers stance by 2 inches and extends the ski's 5 inches forward. this combination while utilizing the same Fox Float stock shocks on an MTX only inverted...works really well. Front end less likely to submarine on you, easier to lean on it's side and much better agility when you need to get around in places where Ski-doo 850 and Polaris RMK's like to play. If you don't believe me, look up "Chris Brown SR Viper". Upon observing his maneuvers through trees and on sidehills I got a look at his "A" arms and front end......Barcode 365 kit. Mine is on the way. :)

                        ok gents, i'm having reverse issues again in my 15 viper. i had an issue last year where i accidentally shut it off in reverse, and it confused the computer/actuator and it kept trying to put itself back in forward when it was already in forward. i fixed it by taking off the actuator, starting the sled, puting the chaincase manually in reverse, pushing the reverse button so the actuator was in reverse (while still holding it), then reinstall the actuator and put it back in forward (for real). this year i got sucked into a ditch while backing up, and it flopped over, so the rollover switch shut it off. now its doing the same thing, but i can't get it to correct itself with my above method. now i've noticed when i pull off the actuator, and press the reverse button, the gear on it moves more than 360 degrees. when i manually move the chaincase, it moves about 180-200 degrees for a full shift. this tells me the actuator is moving too far, but i don't know why or what changed. the actuator is purely mechanical to my knowledge, so i'm thinking the computer is keeping the electric motor part of it running/turning too long. i can't figure out why or what changed, but i'm not entirely convinced that the actuator itself is actually the culprit.....any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

                            TURBO GUYS, I still am puzzled why turbo guys do not have a reverse helix in there sled. A reverse helix holds back shift on the lower end so you can build boost then shifts up fast. Instead of stock 43 try a 40/46 that starts the shift quite a bit slower then slams the shift in once boost is built.

                            Yes N/A guys like the 46/40 that shifts fast on take off (no boost to build) then slows the shift in upper ranges as N/A doesn't have the power to pull the gear. Opposite than Turbo, so in my opinion requires an opposite helix

                            Or ignore me if you are happy with your turbo. :)

                              So Saturday We were tooling around Grand Mesa and I spot a Viper..a mod Viper at that so of course I had to go over and chat. Turns out it was Cable Wilford the former pro Yamaha sponsored hill climb racer. He is no longer doing that but is going to enter Jackson Hillclimb as an independant.

                              So I had him ride my Viper on 220hp then 285hp and he said "I wish you wouldn't have hit that switch" as he was hooked on the power at 285hp. I then asked him how he liked the clutch and he was impressed so we took the side cover off his sled to see what the shop that does alot of Yamaha race prep had put in it. Out of respect for him I won't say what was in there but I told him I had a few parts in my truck that would help if he wanted to see. He agreed and I popped a few parts in and he said the sled now kept on pulling and backshifted better than ever before. I can't tell you how good that makes me feel to know that parts of the clutch setup I have shared with all of you should be in the Blue Viper running the hillclimb the 25th.

                              Video below is Cable running my sled to the top of a hill that I swear is steeper than it looks in this video.......lol.

Question - do I need to (or will it be easier) to remove the skid or can I install the front skid spring and rear torsion springs without doing so? I have already heard I can do the front spring without removing the skid.

I do have the Hygear prolink 141 installed. Front coil shock is backed offa bit to get more ski pressure.

                                    2015 Yamaha SR-Viper LTX LE Turbocharged — Yamaha SR Viper Owners

                                    This is a 2015 Yamaha SR-Viper LTX LE with a MPI Turbocharger maxed out to 14# of boost. The sled has 1378 miles on it. The turbo kit was installed with 600 miles on the sled, so it has a total of 778 miles on the turbo kit. This sled was dyno tuned by Joe Haack. It is currently capable of 260-270hp on pump gas at 14#s of boost. It also has a 2-step button on the handlebars that was tuned to create 1# of boost for superior launch control. There is $25k invested (poor word choice…) into this sled to get it where it is today. It will out run any stock SW by a long shot and out run any modestly modified (exhaust and clutching) SW by a good distance. It runs neck and neck against a mildly tuned SW (exhaust, clutching, PCV, boost dial).

                                    No issues with the sled whatsoever. Just getting out of the sport for a while.

                                                I bought a 2016 MTX 153 recently for a steal of a price and couldn't pass it up. Got my first ride in this weekend and I really enjoyed it. I ran into another Yamaha owner and he had the same sled but had converted it to more crossover sled spec with 146" rails, smaller lug track and he extended the front end out wider. He said that for midwestern riding, this was absolutely the way to go and that as long as I didn't go under 146 on the rails, everything would bolt up without any other changes. He mentioned that he basically broke even between purchasing the new parts and selling off the ones he removed. Can someone point me in the right direction on assembling a parts list and whether this would be a good idea to try? Thanks!

                                                  Lots of info floating around about clutches and who knows what so its probably time for a primer. Please note there is not just ONE way of setting up a clutch, several different ways may achieve the same results. What I am putting here are the basics.

                                                  1. Set your engagement speed and top RPM in the primary. Yes secondary changes can effect RPM but do not use that as a primary way of setting RPM (I am guilty of getting a couple hundred RPM using secondary on occasion though).

                                                  a. Primary springs usually come with a starting pressure and a finish pressure, the Viper has a spring that is rated 35-101, 35 being the speed the clutch engages and the 101 the pressure the spring has at full compression (also effects RPM, change weights to compensate if you change spring)

                                                  b. Weight profile, flatter profiles tend to do as implied and have an even RPM and even pull against the secondary. Viper 8gl has a bump the rollers have to overcome initially on takeoff and increase RPM on takeoff then flattens out and changes the ramp angle about half way down the roller. My opinion for a torque engine is a flatter profile to take advantage of the wide torque curve, once again my preference.

                                                  c. Weight vs profile. Changing the profile while running the same weight will cause different RPMs. Think pushing a roller down with the flat side of a screwdriver, then do it with the curved side of a pair of pliers. Not going to spend much time here just note if you change profile a weight adjustment may be needed.

                                                  d. Rivet placement, not going to spend much time here either as this is advanced clutching just note it DOES matter which hole you put rivet weights in.

                                                  2. Secondary clutch, think shifting like your 5 speed in your truck or car. Shift up too fast and suffer power loss. Hold your shift till you hit 100rpm under your rev limiter and suffer power loss.

                                                  a. Secondary spring, main purpose is to control belt side pressure but it also controls rate of shift even though that is the helix main job. Gets confusing because one effects the other. Moving the spring from tight to loose controls how fast you backshift and also how fast you upshift....but see helix below

                                                    Well, I'm now on my 3rd winter Season with my 2015 Viper MTX 162 turbo and although I have heard a lot of negative complaints about the machine, I absolutely still love mine. I have had very few and minor maintenance issues. The power at 190 hp is great and it just goes and goes. I'm riding this Viper in the steepest and deepest snowy locations in the lower 48 states of North America from Mt. Shasta to Mt. Baker in the Cascade range near the border of B.C. in Washington state. True, it is heavier than the other sleds but the power and reliability make up for it. The only design flaw that I believe was that the MTX comes with stock skis that are only 5.75 inches in width. I rode the 2014 Arctic Cat M8 with similar ski's and it was not nose diving like my viper was in 4.5 feet of wet mashed potatoes on Mt. Baker. I have since learned from that experience and have some 8" wide Slydog Powderhounds on the way to keep that front end from sinking and give me some better turning ability with the reverse angled keel. I wish wider ski's had come from the factory originally but other than this......I absolutely love the Viper and I don't have any plans to ever part with it. Hands down the best looking machine out there on the mountain, tons of torque and horsepower, climbs like a bat out of hell once you get the nose up and as always, just turn the key and go. What a machine! The only problems that I have experienced so far are......1.) small coolant leak from a loose worm clamp, 2.) wear on the rails from the ice scratchers and 3.) I think my steering linkeage is starting to devolope some slop and looseness from me reefing on it and pulling on those side hills hard. Other than this.....The Viper is my personal favorite sled of choice above all the rest. I have ridden RMK's, 800 Cats and 800 Skidoos. Many of them are very nice sleds but I still prefer the Viper. Next year I plan to upgrade to the 270 HP turbo kit once it's paid off. Thank you Thief River Falls and Yamaha for making me an EXCELLENT MACHINE! ;)

                                                      For the new guy's on the page .... People on this page have said the viper is only reaching 76-80 mph . . ive always said mine runs atleast 100 mph but on two different very cold rides my sled wouldn't turn more then 7200 rpms for a whopping 70 mph. I blamed the cold weather and ecm...today while installing my big venom clutch kit i noticed my secondary clutch was sticking on further inspection ..my father pointed out all the burrs it had on various contact points especially around the towers . so a little bit of grinding and polishing and it works great... So if you don't have a mountain sled and it lacks on top end , this might be worth taking a look at ... Yamaha needs to do a little better job when it comes to the finish of their clutches

                                                            Looking for a "race" can for my 14 Viper.. I currently have full Hindle exhaust, and absolutely love it for trail riding.. However my sled is also used for snow drag racing.. So since the hindle I have is fairly quiet, I am looking for the loudest can possible, as long as it doesn't sacrifice HP, I don't care if it supposedly gives you more.. The louder the better..

                                                            Suggestions? Anyone have one they want to get rid of one because it's just too loud?

                                                            NOT looking to sell or trade the Hindle, I just want a louder bark at the races.. Where I race I'm the only N/A Viper that competes, so the more attention the noise brings the better..

                                                              I have a question, next time you have odd Viper issues regaurding fueling or starting can you set the guages to show altitude and check it? Before you think me stupid the altimiter reading effects fueling and my recent testing of the altimeter has shown it wayyyy off at times. Gary Mansfield new Sidewinder altimeter does the same. If you try to start it when the altimeter says 14k I would suspect a lean condition. As a note, the altimeter on mine and Garys starts high and goes down until correct but takes 5 to 10 seconds. My last 2 rides the altimeter has been wrong more than it has been right. Today I was at 11500 and the altimeter said 9300 and the sled ran doggy. I manually set the altimeter to 11500 and it was back to awesome. It seems shutting off sled and restarting and waiting 5 seconds zeros it out too. Would like to prove or disprove this theory if you guys would help :)

                                                                    Was in plus 6 Celsius temps so snow was real wet and sticky. Steering was still good never really noticed much difference with the exception of it being lighter.

                                                                    Only thing now for suspension is that in the mogals on the trail my front end bottomed out a few times.

                                                                    On to performance questions. Was talking with my dealer as he was asking how i was enjoying my new sled. I was honest with him about the fact i knew this should be a better than 80mph sled. Told him i got a big venom clutch kit and belt adjuster on its way. He said the clutches dont open fully and he asked if i was getting my clutches machined. Is this a good idea or will the big venom kit help with this. Just really worried about warranty and not doing anything for three years to void it lol. Ive been told yamaha is very sticky on warranty claims.

Mechanic said without the flash if I had starter kickback I could get hassled from Yamaha for warranty. Now even cycling the key it takes two tries to start. The worst thing though is that it seems to hit the rev limiter constantly. Anyone else have that issue?

So the bolts where the skid attaches to the frame are in their factory locations, the cam is set to the softest setting, the spring is the way I got it from the dealer and it looks like my limiter straps are on their loosest setting? Anyone let me know if you see something not right or that could be adjusted better? (LTX SE 137")

The suspension was really soft and comfy, that is the kind of feel I am looking to achieve. I find my seat takes a lot of the jolt of the small to med trail junk. When I got home I adjusted the blocks to the softest setting and will give it a try tomorrow or the next day.

Is it worth the upgrade? Also 95 Octane can be hard to find, for those with it, what additives do you use? With additives I'm just unsure, and want to make sure that I am getting my 95 needed.. That's why I'm looking at the Stage 4 because 91 is easy to find..

Had the sled for a rip last night in the deep damp snow and it feels like it's going to throw me off. I'm thinking I've got too much pressure on my skis? I'm 260LBS sled is 146 inch 1.75 track (ltx with extension kit) and has 7 inch Sly Dog skis. What would be the best setup to keep me on the sled?

I have a 2014 viper ltx that I have studded and I put on a set of SLP Mohawks with six inch carbides. I love the extra float they give me and the precise steering. I bought a 2016 zr5000 as a backup sled and put a set of six inch carbides on it and same studs as the viper. Everything is is stock. Here is my question/issue, when driving each sled side by side the cat feels like it has power steering compared to the viper . Is there anything I can do to get the viper to get that same feeling of power steering short of putting the factory skis back on ?
