    I hope that next year, we don't just get a mountain version of the Viper!

    :drink:

    That would be using A/C two years to buy time for Yamaha to play catch up & get their shitt together!!!

    We need a real new Yamaha!

    I like Cats and Yamahas too, I think the marriage is good.

    There was no technical reason Yamaha couldn't have offered an MTX. Probably wanted to focus on clearing out leftover Nytro MTX's before they release it next year.

    Almost nobody wants the Nytro motor in a mountain sled without a power adder, so I doubt they would sell very many. The M8 will be lighter and have more power.

    Why wait. Lots of guys already planning to "build" a mountian version of the viper. Basically all you'll really need are
    1. Mountian Track
    2. Tunnel Extension
    3. 153 or 162 rails. (suspension arms/shocks/etc are basically the same between Procross/proclimb/viper)
    4. Drivers....maybe.

    All parts are available aftermarket, even the tunnel extension in carbon fiber..

    I hope Yami build their own mountian sled soon, but it does make you wonder why they didn't give us the mountian viper option. Maybe Cat said no. No one buys current MTX's anyway, so I don't think that's the reason.

    OTM

    Oh Yeah....

    I forgot the Turbo thingy for you thin air guys!


    And for us sea levelers, header/intake/PC5 gets you very close to 150hp and its a solid performer with this power level IMHO.

    Has anyone else considered the fact that cat will need a high horse power four stroke to replace the 1100 turbo after Suzuki is done with cat. What do you think they will do? Will this finally be the year we get a Nytro motor with a turbo? I know we have been screaming this for years and I cant see yamaha letting cat turbo the viper/procross without yamaha doing it as well. Here's my contribution to 1000 pages lol.

    Not sure why everyone assumes that AC is done with Suzuki engines.They own the rights to them. Would like to see anything officially saying no more Zuk engines.Seems to me that all evidence points to this Viper being a one time thing.If it works as well as I hope it is going to really give Yamaha some credibility for fixing a sled when AC had trouble.Win for Yamaha if it works.
