2024 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX LE EPS
The SRX sidewinder is a snowmobile provided only for the fastest production sleds and the most difficult accelerates.
The sleek, low-profile chassis is hung by a unique, electronically controlled iQS system that allows you to adjust the ride quickly.

What’s New for 2024?
New for 2024 is the addition of EPS to add handling precision with a lightweight steering character. The combination of iQ and EPS delivers a one-two stroke for a ride unmatched in the high-performance category.
2024 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX LE Features
Stryke’ Single Keel Ski
Yamaha-designed single keel strikes an elusive balance between light steering effort and precise handling in various snow conditions.
The unique staggered carbide further enhances the steering response. A special shim bearing assembly works with a rubber saddle block to adjust the pressure point of the carbide.
The overall ski position can also be adjusted by moving the thick spacers on each ski axle to the opposite side.
Fox Zero iQS Surprise Pack
Fox Intelligent Quick Shift (IQS) shock absorbers are used in front and on the rear arm. The suspension can be adjusted quickly using a switch installed on the left of the crossbar.
Compression damping is offered in three striking steps, from soft to complex. Once activated, the SCU (suspension control unit), located on the shock body, changes the oil flow in all applicable shocks in less than a second allowing the rider to adjust the feel of the suspension to the running state.
The shock settings are displayed on the left digital gauge after selecting. Two select ‘driver’ modes can be set up and stored in memory to change the general settings in one step.
The damping rebound is pre-set, constant to control kick-back and ‘to pack’ on rough roads, regardless of the iQS compression selection.
2024 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX LE Comfort
Sidewinder’s lightweight pointed two-piece tunnel provides strength for long distances and a tapered fit to improve leg comfort and overall riding position.
The reinforced running board is hollowed out with aggressive boot-hold serrations and offers excellent snow evacuation to keep riders’ feet where they want to be.
Standard heated seats provide the highest warmth and comfort, even on the coldest winter days. A simple flip of the dashboard-mounted switch allows for the choice of two warmth settings, allowing the rider to explore what lies behind the next curve.
The handlebar control features a left switch cluster that allows ‘on-the-fly’ access to the multi-step hand and thumbs warmer regulators.
The information on the multi-function gauge can be easily selected with convenient toggle switches and push-button electric start.
The reverse gear switch is also located on the left-hand cluster. The right side of the blades is clean with an ergonomically shaped throttle lever and a simple stand-alone emergency stop switch.
The Hayes ‘Stealth’ brake cylinders are equipped with composite brake levers that provide excellent modulation for better feel and strong stopping performance.
A convenient tunnel bag provides additional storage. The semi-rigid design is easily accessible and waterproof to keep your parts safe and dry. A quarter-turn quick-release fastener is provided for easy removal.
2024 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX LE Performance
The body of the nickel alloy turbine is very strong and precise, able to withstand extremely high temperatures. Powered by premium ceramic ball bearings, The Inconel turbine blade assembly is light and robust.
This results in a low moment of inertia for lightning-fast response to exhaust gas input. Three throttle bodies are used exclusively to further improve the rapid delivery of compressed air from the impeller to the intake valve.
The Yamaha-developed Mitsubishi ECU uses nine sensors to collect running condition data calculated using a predetermined memory ‘map.’ It then adjusts ignition time, fuel delivery, manifold air pressure, and turbo boost pressure to deliver maximum performance under any conditions—reliably.
Yamaha engineers wanted a fast engine to respond with little to no ‘lag’ as in conventional turbos. One way they achieved their goal was to develop an intake system using three separate throttle bodies positioned close to the intake valves instead of just one long intake pipe.
This is an innovation not seen in other production turbos on the planet. And another one of the first for Yamaha with the Genesis turbo.
Unlike conventional turbo ‘blow-off’ valves, the Yamaha ABV redirects air pressure to the intake side of the compressor to prevent surges and help maintain impeller speed, resulting in ready acceleration and smooth power delivery.
The engine cooler is circulated through a turbocharger to control the temperature under the hood and help cool the incoming charge.
When the engine is turned off, the convection energy generated by the superheated coolant in the turbo head keeps it circulating without the coolant pump operating.
This eliminates the need for engine cooling cycles while maintaining high durability on turbo components.
The primary and secondary couplings of the YSRC rollers are calibrated for long-lasting and cold operation.
They efficiently utilize and transfer the considerable torque generated by the Genesis Turbo to the track while minimizing drive belt wear. The primary shifts out aggressively to use all the power on the beat.
The secondary roller quickly shifts backward and provides an additional ratio through a sheave that is too large to continue accelerating long after the other stops.
2024 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX LE Handling
The two-piston brake calipers apply the braking force directly to the drive shaft and are mated with a wave-style light drill rotor. Le’s unique rotor removes a pound of rotating mass from the vehicle’s driveline, helping to transfer all available Sidewinder horsepower to the snow.
The ‘Stealth’ master cylinder and ‘Stealth’ composite brake lever offer excellent modulation and feel with the ergonomically precise operation.
The layout of the SRV chassis was engineered with the aim of concentrating the masses. About 60 percent of the sled’s weight is concentrated within the main triangulation. The result is a sled with fast and balanced handling that is fun to play in various conditions.
The SRV chassis combines a load-bearing triangular structure with a lightweight aluminum construction to create a neutrally balanced sled centered on the rider. The pyramid-shaped upper frame establishes the strength of the chassis without excessive weight.
The SRX uses a one-inch long, low, one-inch multi-layer track, fully truncated in a 2.86 configuration. The lower lug profile results in less wind resistance at high speeds, while the truncated way reduces friction to provide maximum top-speed performance.
In addition, low lugs reduce weight and pressure on the track to improve durability and performance at sustained high speeds.
The straight steering pole on the Sidewinder is configured on top of the engine. It is connected to a single bell crank for simplicity and is lightweight. The design also minimizes free play in the steering system, resulting in a tight turning radius.
