The Venom is a lightweight snowmobile aimed at young, new and returning riders. The fuel-injected, electric start, two-stroke 397cc single cylinder engine is propelled by a 121” Camso Hacksaw track. Long travel 'Dual Shock' rear suspension, lightweight alloy chassis, Stryke single keel ski and racy styling combine to create a compact sled that bristles with excitement at a very attractive price.
A compact digital guage gives the rider speed, rpm, fuel level, hours and distance at a glance. There are also light indicators to warn against any oil or engine temperature issues.
121 x 14 Camso 'Hacksaw' Track
The light-weight 121 inch track is slightly narower (14 inch) with shorter (1 inch)lugs for agility and balanced handling helping make the sled feel as light as it is.
A simple push of a button causes the engine to re-start in reverse. The audible 'back-up' beeper indicates the reverse system is engaged and continues to beep until the button is pushed again to restart the engine in its forward direction. A simple. lightweight and efficient way to back out of a tight situation.

WARRANTY PERIOD All new Yamaha snowmobiles purchased from an authorized Yamaha dealer in the customer's country of residence (United States or Canada) and registered with Yamaha shall be warranted against defects in material and workmanship, subject to the exclusions stated herein, for the following stated period of time:
All Yamaha snowmobiles shall be warranted for a term of one (1) year from the date of purchase, plus a special early-season extension (if applicable).
All Yamaha snowmobile clutch components are warranted against normal wear for a period of three (3) months, or 1250 miles (2000 km), whichever comes first.
All Yamaha snowmobile batteries are warranted for thirty (30) days from the date of purchase.
DURING THE PERIOD OF WARRANTY any authorized Yamaha Snowmobile dealer, shall, free of charge, repair or replace, at Yamaha's option, any part adjudged defective by Yamaha due to faulty workmanship or material from the factory. Parts used in warranty repairs will be warranted for the balance of the warranty period. All parts replaced under warranty become the property of Yamaha.
GENERAL EXCLUSIONS from this warranty shall include any failures to the machine caused by:
Lack of proper setup and/or pre-delivery service by an authorized Yamaha dealer.
Competition or racing use.
Operation on surfaces other than snow or ice.
Installation of parts or accessories that are not qualitatively equivalent to genuine Yamaha parts.
Abnormal strain, neglect, or abuse.
Lack of proper maintenance.
Accident or collision damage.
Modification to original parts.
SPECIFIC EXCLUSIONS from this warranty shall include parts replaced due to normal wear or routine maintenance including oil, spark plugs, clutch drive belts, slide runners, and tracks.
THE CUSTOMER'S RESPONSIBILITY under this warranty shall be to:
Operate and maintain the snowmobile as specified in the appropriate Owner's Manual. It is recommended that the customer keep records to show proof of proper maintenance and off-season storage having been performed.
Give notice to an authorized Yamaha Snowmobile dealer of any and all apparent defects within ten (10) days after discovery, and make the machine available at that time for inspection and repairs at such dealer's place of business.
EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY (U.S.A. ONLY) Yamaha also warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser of each applicable model Yamaha snowmobile covered by this warranty that the vehicle is designed, built, and equipped so as to conform at the time of sale with all U.S. emissions standards applicable at the time of manufacture and that it is free from defects in materials and workmanship which would cause it not to meet these standards within the period listed immediately below. Failures other than those resulting from defects in material or workmanship which arise solely as a result of owner abuse and/or lack of proper maintenance are not covered by this warranty.
All Models Thirty (30) months from the original purchase date.
WARRANTY TRANSFER: To transfer any remaining warranty from the original purchaser to any subsequent purchaser, it is imperative that the machine be inspected and registered for warranty by an authorized Yamaha Snowmobile dealer in the country of residence of the original purchaser. In order for this warranty to remain in effect, this inspection and registration must take place within ten (10) days after ownership transfer. A reasonable dealer-imposed fee may be charged for this inspection.

WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q. What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period? A. The customer's responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services, non-warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, as well as oil, spark plugs, clutch drive belts, and slide runners.
Q. What are some examples of "abnormal" strain, neglect, or abuse? A. These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples include: Running the machine out of oil, hitting an object submerged under snow, operation on surfaces other than snow or ice, operating the machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail, and so on. If you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer for advice.
Q. May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owner's Manual instead of having the dealer do them? A. Yes, if you are a qualified snowmobile mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the Owner's and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha snowmobile dealer.
Q. Will the warranty be void or canceled if I do not operate or maintain my new Yamaha exactly as specified in the Owner's Manual? A. No. The warranty on a new Yamaha cannot be "voided" or "canceled." However, if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as shown in the Owner's Manual, that failure may not be covered under warranty.
Q. Under what conditions is the clutch not covered by warranty? A. Clutches as well as clutch components wear with use. Normal wear is not covered under warranty and such service is the customer's responsibility. Abnormal wear is, however, covered for one (1) year from the date of purchase. Your Yamaha Snowmobile dealer possesses criteria as to what constitutes abnormal wear.
Q. What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty? A. Each Yamaha Snowmobile dealer is expected to:
Completely set up every new machine before sale.
Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date.
In addition, each Yamaha snowmobile dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and warranty repair work.
Q. Whom should I contact if I have further questions about this warranty? A. Your Yamaha Snowmobile dealer has the information and experience necessary to answer almost any questions about this warranty. If the dealer is not able to do so, he is expected to contact Yamaha, for clarification or assistance.
If your machine requires warranty service, you must take it to any authorized Yamaha Snowmobile dealer within the continental United States or Canada. Be sure to bring your warranty identification card or other valid proof of the original date of purchase. If a question or problem arises regarding warranty, first contact the owner of the dealership. Since all warranty matters are handled at the dealer level, this person is in the best position to help you. If you are still not satisfied and require additional assistance, please write:

CHANGE OF ADDRESS
The federal government requires each manufacturer of a motor vehicle to maintain a complete, up-to-date list of all first purchasers against the possibility of a safety-related defect and recall. This list is compiled from the purchase registrations sent to Yamaha by the selling dealer at the time of your purchase.
If you should move after having purchased this snowmobile, please advise Yamaha of your new address by sending a post card listing your snowmobile model name, engine serial number, dealer number (or dealer's name) as it is shown on your warranty registration identification, your name and new mailing address. Mail to:
YAMAHA MOTOR CANADA LTD. CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPARTMENT 480 GORDON BAKER RD Toronto, Ontario M2H 3B4
This will ensure that Yamaha has an up-to-date registration record in accordance with federal law.
