    The Mad Viking Project

    The Wolverine will certainly be a nice platform for this swap, perhaps you can take it to the next level, going much further than I intend to. The nice thing with the Yami snow engines (as I'm sure you know) is the extremely large variety of clutch and clutch tuning options. Just about any...

    Can-Am Electric/Hydraulic steering concept

    Why not try to increase the power of the electric system? Perhaps the electric system from a car... there are many that could potentially work. In order to get speed on my machine, I'm using Yamaha ATV and snowmobile EPS parts... the steering will have a bit less than a 180 degree sweep. The...

    walker evans velocity/ fox internal bypass/king internal bypass/elka 2.5

    The King IBP is much like the Walker Evans with the needle, but has a major difference. With the King, the bypassed oil has its own secondary piston with valve stacks, which are independently tunable. Whereas the bypass on the WE is simply a bleed port that the needle slowly closes off (someone...

    The Mad Viking Project

    Here's an idea that's continues mulling around in my head, some input on it will be great. As mentioned in the first post, the Vector power steering uses the same motor/actuator assembly as the Grizzly Quad, the assist curve in the steering ECU is the only difference. If this was fit up to the...

    The Mad Viking Project

    It's still on, just slow moving due to other projects. The YXZ 1000R introduction has fanned the flames..... The YXM 1049 will live! FWIW, the Wolverine chassis is pretty much a Viking. The largest differences are the narrower body, DOHC engine, and longer rear A-arms for less scrub. The front...

    10 THINGS THE DEALER WON’’T TELL YOU ABOUT YAMAHA’S YXZ1000R - Dirt Wheels Magazine

    Good info, thanks for posting it. The 1049 EFI Vector and Viper/Nytro long block engines are very close... the largest difference is the camshaft profile. While the Turbo kit sounds fun... dropping a normally aspirated 150hp 1049cc will be fun, too... and likely require a reprogramming of the...

    Yamaha Yamaha YXZ 1000 Chronicles?

    Yamaha has great manuals, and the factory book should have all the specs for the transmission, and probably some good diagrams, too. The unit is beginning to look very impressive, it even appears to not only be pressure fed, but also has an oil spray bar directing lube directly onto the gears...

    Yamaha Yamaha YXZ 1000 Chronicles?

    Happy to help here, and thanks for the welcome. I've playing with this engine since 2005. There is no external pump in this setup. The pump is inside the engine, though relatively easily accessible by removing the oil pan. Here's the layout, which you are likely familiar with, but I'll put it...

    Yamaha Yamaha YXZ 1000 Chronicles?

    Yes please. I'll likely add one to the stable in a year or so. My early thoughts, if you want them? I believe the gear box and clutch have an oil pump and are pressure fed lube. An oil to air cooler and filter sound like a no brainer to me. The engine appears to be version of the Genesis...

    New Yamaha?

    I find the transmission design promising. It's separate from the engine, so not only can the lube be tailored for better clutch operation, it won't have engine contaminants nor engine HEAT, it will be far more effective. Heat is the big killer here... the clutch is likely fed lube directly from...

    New Yamaha?

    That engine... oh that triple engine... I've been driving various versions on the snow since 2005. Shouldn't be difficult to swap in the 1049cc Nytro engine. It'll push close to 150hp fairly easily in the sleds.

    All UTV's CVT clutch performance

    I still have yet to locate my copy, but IMO you will be well served by one. Ski Doo has many various 4 stroke snowmobiles. They did use the V twin some years ago, now they use inline twins and triples... It is surprising (or maybe not) that the engineer did not discuss those clutches with...

    What are your UTV pet-peeves?

    One of my largest is some of the seat designs.... specifically, the lack of proper head and neck support, though there are likely more issues with these seats. The head rests are often to low and/or poorly supported. During crashes and rollovers, it allows the head to move in, well, bad ways...

    All UTV's What do you get when you cross.....

    Stock, the Suzuki engine produces 177hp. Being turbo, it is easy to turn up the boost... but I'm sure there's more to it when pushing 300. The 4 stroke sled engines tend to be very reliable, even when pushing significantly higher numbers than stock. Snowmobiles can handle a lot of power as...

    I'm not selling those stock parts just yet, but I'll let you know when the time comes. Here's a picture of the rear King IBP Shocks being fit. The upper rear mount had to be moved upward almost 3" to accommodate the length of the new dampers, Yamaha left plenty of room. Measurements and...

    I did some research on the Can Am belts. The triangle w/ 3 stars imprinted on them is exciting to see... that is the mark of the manufacturer, Mitsuboshi, not to be confused with Mitsubishi.

    Yes, thanks. I utilize some of their products on various builds around here.

    While Yamaha has a very well designed and strong semi floating hub assembly (the nut on the end is an M24 x 1.5), I've seen enough of of you guys lose wheels to have me contemplate building a full floating system. A little searching turned up some appropriately sized parts, which also happen to...

    John Deere ibleedblue's rsx 850i

    Well, the stock 76hp cams from the Aprilia 850 will only set you back $184... if you ever get to that point. I'm sure there's more to the extra power than just cams... higher compression, maybe different cylinder heads, intake.

    John Deere ibleedblue's rsx 850i

    I wonder if it is the Aprilia cams? A quick search turned them up for $184 for the set. Sorry, getting ahead of things here! :D

    John Deere ibleedblue's rsx 850i

    Did you find factory cams, or is some one offering them? It appears that the Aprilia 850 SRV scooter engine may be the same? It produces 76hp in factory trim.

    UTV thing..

    I'm interested in your choice of differentials. I build and deal with Toyotas much of the time, and I've been considering the smaller Toyota 6.7 inchers instead of the 7.5 for my 4WD UTV project. This choice is mainly due to weight, especially rotating. I recently found a really sweet all...

    All UTV's CVT belt life

    It's likely a 500cc version of the 420 Rancher, which uses a dual clutch system to shift it's 5 speeds.... just like many full sized autos. Cool stuff.

    All UTV's CVT belt life

    IMO, the swiss cheese housing has to go. Not only is preheated air the only source, but the air is completely unmanaged. The secondary clutch needs to become an appropriate fan and intake. It's large... and as the clutch shifts out it will move some serious air.

    I used an 8" IBP that was on the shelf here for these mock up shots... Perhaps I should change the order to have the shocks done entirely in black to help with the sleeper look.
