The Act provides a warranty on the goods you purchase or lease : they must be usable for normal use for a reasonable length of time.
The Consumer Protection Act gives a warranty on all goods you purchase or lease from a merchant.

The goods must be useable:

  • For the purposes for which they are ordinarily used (section 37 of the Act) and

Most Yamahas are protected by a factory warranty, but you may want a little extra peace of mind. We Get You.

No one offers superior engineering, style and performance like Yamaha. That´s why we stand behind our products with the industry´s best warranty coverage and our own extended coverage plan, Yamaha Protection Plus (YPP).

    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:

    1. Lack of proper setup and/or pre-delivery service by an authorized Yamaha dealer.
    2. Competition or racing use.
    3. Operation on surfaces other than snow or ice.
    4. Installation of parts or accessories that are not qualitatively equivalent to genuine Yamaha parts.

    All new Yamaha snowmobiles purchased between May 1 and November 30 will have the warranty extended to November 30 of the following year.

    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:
      1. Completely set up every new machine before sale.
      2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date.
      3. 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.

Top Features

  • 998 Genesis Turbo Engine
  • The turbo boosted, one liter triple is unmatched when it comes to delivering incredible power with the refinement and quality you have come to expect from a Yamaha. Designed around a premium turbo unit, every engine component from intake to exhaust, is dedicated to producing uncompromised performance. In only its second year in production the Yamaha turbo has earned the respect and reputation befitting the industries highest achiever. Truly this is the potent venom of a Sidewinders bite.
  • YSRC High Performance Clutch System
  • The YSRC primary and roller secondary clutches were specifically designed 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.
  • Dual Shock SR 137 Rear Suspension
  • The Dual Shock SR 137 rear suspension is the cumulative result of years of punishment and development in snocross and cross-country competition. Utilizing a 'free-acting' front arm which effectively couples to the rear arm under torque loads while letting the front arm float to follow the bumps, keeping the skis firmly planted. This is accomplished using a U-shaped slot on the leading arm that fits over a fixed mounting shaft to allow a limited amount of free sliding movement. This features offers the best of both uncoupled small bump compliance with optimum coupled weight transfer control.
  • EBRS Engine Braking Control
  • The effect of 4-stroke 'engine braking' when the throttle valves are closed has a significant impact on handling and ride character. Yamaha developed a special system which employs the ISC (idle speed control) circuit and ECU map using throttle valve movement and RPM information to reduce negative intake pressure during deceleration.
  • Large fuel tank
  • The Sidewinder's generous 10 gallon / 38 liter fuel tank serves more purposes than just carrying a day's worth of fuel. It also cradles the battery and is the platform for the quick-release trail seat. The ever-changing fuel load is carried low and rearward, helping centralize the overall mass and balance of the sled.

Performance

  • High Tech Turbo
  • 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.
  • Mitsubishi Electronic Control Unit
  • The Yamaha-developed Mitsubishi ECU uses a series of 9 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.
  • Triple Throttle Body Induction
  • Yamaha 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, something that is not seen in any other production turbo on the planet. And another first for Yamaha with the Genesis turbo.
  • Electronic Air Bypass Valve
  • Unlike conventional turbo 'blow-off' valves, the Yamaha electronic air bypass valve redirects air pressure back into the intake side of the compressor to prevent surge and help maintain impeller speed, always at the ready for the next acceleration with seamless power delivery.
  • Liquid Cooled Turbo Body
  • Engine coolant is circulated through the turbocharger to control both underhood 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.

Handling

  • Centralized Mass Design
  • 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.
  • SRV Front suspension
  • The SRV front suspension geometry is aimed at managing spindle camber, resulting in minimized bump-steer and maximized cornering bite giving rider confidence in varying trail conditions. The A-arms are mounted at a 30-degree angle from the sled's centerline to efficiently dissipate impact force throughout the entire chassis. Likewise, the front shocks mount directly to the leading spar so that trail forces are routed to the strongest part of the chassis. Wide a-arm spacing minimizes flex and stress in the front suspension system, which means consistent and confident corner handling.
  • Lightweight, Rigid SRV Chassis
  • 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.
  • Gen3 Tuner Skis
  • The latest version of the Yamaha Tuner Ski is lightweight and designed for precise handling response. A wide selection of carbides can be combined to dial the Tuner to fit any riding style. Replaceable ski tips are available in multiple colors for additional customization.
  • HPG Shock Package
  • The SRViper L-TX receives a full compliment of proven, aluminum High Pressure Gas shocks with beefy .5 inch shafts front and rear to handle all the challenges the trail can dish out

COMFORT

  • Heated Trail Seat
  • A standard heated seat provides the ultimate in warmth and comfort on even the coldest of winter days. A simple flip of the dash-mounted switch allows you to choose from two settings of warmth allowing you to explore what lies beyond that next curve from sun-up to sundown in complete comfort.
  • Standard Mid-Height Wind Deflector
  • Escape the wind and winter's chill with a sculpted, functional windshield. A small lip at the top deflects wind and snow up and over the rider at speed, while flared edges provided added protection and warmth for your hands.
  • Digital Gauge
  • Full-featured and easy to read, the digital gauge displays critical information in a glance including speed, fuel level, trip mileage, tach and more. We even included a clock so you can watch the time fly.
  • Push Button Reverse
  • Convenient handlebar positioning makes 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.
  • Standard Electric Start
  • Yamaha's electric starter system allows you to fire up your Sidewinder with the turn of a key. There is no pulling on a nylon cord to get this high-tech engine growling! And you don't pay more - Electric start is a standard feature on all of Yamaha's 4-stroke machines.
