They r already making an engine for them it might put arctic cat back on the map if they can build a sled that could hold up to the power hopefully it won't taint the Yamaha name though as we all know they are the king of reliability so they will have to beef up that tin can for sure

IIRC, MY 14 will remain the same. A/C deal does not end until end of 2013, by which time all MY 14's will have been produced. MY 15 is anybodies guess, but I really do not think Yamaha will want A/C's chassis technology. I am driving it and I don't want it. The PC sleds are belt eaters, and @ $250 a pop, no one in their right mind would want it.

Give me a 700 or 800 2-stroke yamaha engine, ideally something like an SRX800 triple/triple with direct injection/etec in a light chassis and I'll switch back in a heartbeat. I loved the triples and with the shorter stroke (low/wide engine profile) they'll handle on rails and with smaller pistons they'll run forever and run smooth. Coffee-can piston/cylinders just don't hold up much over 3,000 mi.

The procross chassis is pretty nice, just needs Yamaha's touches especially in the clutching department and you'd have a sweet ride. More than the chassis I think Yamaha needs to come back with a 2stroke and that will drop 50lbs off of anything they have so a sweet 2stroke in even the nitro would be a huge win.

That's exactly what Yamaha should bring out... a SRX 800 with a DI 2 stroke motor in a real aggressive chassis. Rumor has it Gerard Karpik (Team Fast/Blade) may be involved in helping Yamaha build and new chassis and front end?

Srx 800 with DI or even sdi would get them back in the mix. Twin or triple,it wouldn't matter

I have no way of knowing, but something must be brewing....

AC is making the 120 for Yammie, painting it blue with SRX badging right ???

I have considered an Apex XTX as a replacement for my Switchback, but have a hard time with the weight. A 2-stroke 6 or 8 DI (as mentioned) with AC suspension might do the trick. Throw in Yamaha electronics / reliability, and fit and finish and.......

Think I'll ride the 06 one more year and see what Yammie has up its sleeve. Maybe a new 2014 Yamaha Mountain Max DI 800 will be my next ride ??
