"We made a series of bad decisions, and as a result, we lost our reputation and we can now no longer actually manufacture snowmobiles. We went from the industry leader to standing in the corner facing the wall."
We keep saying the same stuff over and over every year, myself included.
It is extremely disappointing to see fan cooled sleds going away. In much of Canada, they are still in regular use, and they are in many regards superior to liquid cooled. Something like an SRV or XLV with TSS and a long track would set a standard.
700 triples are still a hot commodity. 485s, huge following. Bravos sell for big dollars. Heck even 540s and 340s are hot items. They are all so simple and elegant. Somehow I don’t think that 30-40 years from now, this generation of sleds will still have a robust community. And this is all...
Some day I would honestly like to know the inside story of how Yamaha went from dominating the industry in the 80s and 90s to being the shadow it is now, losing its reputation, flopping into the trail market, and begging Cat to build them some trail units on an old chassis.
We see folks blaming Cat for engineering fails all the time. I start to wonder if that is a bit of a copout. After all, Yamaha puts their name on the product.
Remember back when Yamaha built super reliable sleds? Yeah.
At the carb. Pull up on the oil cable. Measure the gap between the end of the cable jacket and the metal sleeve. Where there is bare wire.
This should be 25mm.
You should be able to feel the oil pump stroke adjuster springing back when you release the cable.
Check these out for some...
So, the 2022 400s say CVTech drive. 21s were Team if I recall correctly. What else changed? Did they fix the skid breaking and frame folding issues too? I assume that the clutching and possible ECU update will take care of the catastrophic 1324 codes and motor burns that guys were seeing.
