2023 Yamaha Sidewinder L-TX GT EPS Features
The turbo-powered one-liter triple is unparalleled in its ability to deliver fantastic power, with the precision and performance you’ve come to expect from Yamaha.
It is designed around a premium turbo, with every element, starting from the intake until the exhaust, is designed to deliver uncompromising performance.
The tested Yamaha turbo is a winner and has gained honor and recognition due to being the industry’s top performer. The engine is a potent poison for the bite of the Sidewinder.
Yamaha Variable Electric Power Steering (EPS)
Yamaha introduced EPS on snowmobiles in 2011, pioneering the revolutionary technology that decreases steering effort and increases steering accuracy.
The latest generation has reduced weight by more than 3 pounds and is equipped with the ‘brushless’ DC motor. There are no brushes that wear out.
This ensures more excellent reliability and higher thermal efficiency or capability to keep total power output for longer durations.
Variable assist EPS uses a magnetic torque sensor to determine the amount of the steering input based on the torsion or twist of the steering post that results from the hand bars input and the ski’s resistance.
The magnetic torque sensor sends the data to an integrated control module’ that, then signals the brushless’servo-motor’ that will aid the steering using its worm-gear-powered drive assembly.
The system also relays the engine’s rpm and speed data for the controller that adjusts for more significant assistance at slower speeds and then reduces the service when the vehicle speeds up, giving an improved natural, natural feeling or a ‘connection towards the landscape.
When skis contact an unnatural force against the steering input, the torque sensor informs that the controller module provides extra assistance to counteract or resist’ the negative input.
This helps reduce the exertion required to steer while also increasing reliability for increased confidence in the rider with less strain.
High-Performance Clutch system
The YSRC Primary and secondary roller clutches have been tuned to ensure long-lasting and cool operation. The clutches harness the enormous torque created from Genesis Turbo efficiently to the track while minimizing drive belt wear.
The primary drives out with a ferocious speed to make use of all the power available. The roller secondary is fast to reverse shift and offers an additional ratio via its large sheaves, allowing it to continue moving even after all the others have completed their signatures.
This Sidewinder L-TX GT is equipped with Fox QS3 shocks for a superior upgrade to this model. The Fox gas shock is high-pressure and comes with piggyback chambers that provide the best control.
With less fade and three simple to adjust compression damping settings, you can and easily alter the ride to the conditions and your riding preferences.
Double rate coil springs give additional sag that lowers the GT’s nose to provide an exact steering response.
Its Dual Shock SR 137 rear suspension provides the best ride comfort, bump bridging, floatation, and traction. Comfort and ride are enhanced by HPG central as well as adjustable Fox QS3 rear shock absorbers.
SR 137 is a “coupled” suspension that uses the unique “sliding” front mount. With as little as a half-inch motion at the”slot” on the front of the “slot,” the system permits the SR 37 to provide a controlled ski-lift when acceleration occurs and maintain the front arm’s bump compliance.
Its ARCS front suspension has large, robust cast alloy spindles and a redesigned lighter upper A-arms. Redesigned to provide the best suspension performance and increased ground clearance Sidewinder L-TX GT Sidewinder L-TX GT has a more stable and predictable handling and less chassis roll.
Engine Braking Reduction Systems
The effect of 4-stroke engine brakes’ when throttle valves are shut has an impact on the performance and the overall ride and ride quality, which is why Yamaha created a specific system that uses an ISC (idle speed control) circuit as well as the ECU map that makes use of the movement of the throttle valve and the RPM information to lower the negative pressure of intake during deceleration.
Stealth Control System
The controls on the handlebars feature the left-hand side of the switch cluster to allow “on-the-fly” accessibility to the multi-step thumb and hand warm adjusters and the reverse push-button gear shifter, as well as the multi-function gauge, which can be conveniently selected by using a handy toggle.
On the right-hand side, the bar is clean and features an ergonomically designed throttle lever and an emergency, simple stop switch.
The Hayes “Stealth” brake cylinder is fitted with a brake lever constructed of composite that, in conjunction with a light caliper, gives you a better grip and powerful stopping power.
2023 Yamaha Sidewinder L-TX GT EPS Comfort
The medium-smoked polycarbonate shields riders who are high-mileage from most frigid days. With a small lip on the top, the windshield swerves snow and wind upwards and across the rider when riding at high speed, while the flared edges add warmth and protection to your hands.
The windshield is thicker than standard windshields, and this windshield minimizes the vibration of mirrors when moving at high speed. It also includes pre-marked indents to facilitate the installation of optional mirrors.
Dual Accessory Power Outlets
A DC socket-style plug supports an insulated visor DC outlet to enable devices simultaneously.
Heated The Trail Seat
The Sidewinder L-TX GT is standard for an insulated seat that offers comfort and warmth on the coldest winter days.
Just a simple turn of the switch on the dashboard will take you the option of two heat settings that allow you to travel the sun’s rays from sunrise to sunset in total comfort.
The digital gauge that is controlled by the handlebar
The fully-featured and simple-to-read digital gauge provides vital details in a glance like the speed, fuel level, the trip’s mileage, tach, temperature, elevation, and more. You can easily change the functions using the switch controls located on the left-hand bar.
Push Button Forward
By simply pressing the thumb, you can shift from effortlessly and reverse with a single touch. A servo motor moves the drivetrain in reverse quickly and continuously, while an alarm sound alerts you that the system is in reverse.
20″ Tunnel Bag
The bag under the seat provides additional storage. Thanks to its semi-rigid design, it is easily accessible and waterproof. The quarter-turn quick-release fasteners allow easy removal.
High Tech Turbo
With the ability to withstand extremely high temperatures and temperatures, the Nickel alloy structure of turbines is durable and precise.
High-quality ceramic ball bearings support it. The Inconel blades are lightweight and robust, resulting in an extremely low instant of inertia, resulting in rapid reaction to an exhaust gas’s entry.
Three throttles are utilized to enhance the speedy transfer of air compressed from the impeller to intake valves.
Mitsubishi Electronic Control Unit
The Yamaha-designed Mitsubishi ECU utilizes a set of nine sensors that gather information about running conditions to calculate a memory map pre-determined by the manufacturer that can adjust the timing of ignition and fuel delivery and manifold air pressure and turbo boost pressure to give maximum performance in all conditions.
Triple Throttle Induction of the Body
The Yamaha Genesis turbo engine’s intake system has three distinct throttle bodies located just a few inches from the intake valves, resulting in immediate engine response with minimal or no delay. This is something that you won’t find in any other turbo engine in the world.
Electronic Air Bypass Valve (ABV)
In contrast to conventional turbo blow-off valves, The Yamaha ABV directs air pressure to an intake area of the compressor, which keeps the impeller from overheating and maintaining speed.
Fluid Cold Turbo Body
If the engine is shut down, it produces convection energy. The super-heated cooling fluid at the turbo head can continue to circulate without the cooling pump in operation, eliminating the need for a cool-down cycle while preserving the endurance of the turbo’s components.
2023 Yamaha Sidewinder L-TX GT EPS Handling
Centralized Mass Design
The SRV chassis design was designed to streamline mass. Around 60 percent of the sled’s weight is evenly distributed in the triangulation to create an easy-to-handle, well-balanced sled, which is fun to toss around in a myriad of weather conditions.
Lightweight, rigid SRV Chassis
The SRV chassis blends an angular structure that can carry loads with a lightweight aluminum construction to form a balanced, neutral, centered sled for the user. The upper frame that is pyramidal builds strong chassis without adding weight.
Stryke Single Keel Ski
The Yamaha single-keel ski achieves the difficult balance between light steering effort and precise handling.
Uniquestaggered carbides improve the steering response, and the unique shim pad is used in conjunction with the saddle block made of rubber to regulate the carbide pressure point.
The ski stance is adjustable by moving the large spacer at the end of each axle on the opposite side.
