Thanks guys I am a big fan of the sled so far and thanks for the support Yam guys. Because I drive Poo if this was about the new T- Cat and I would have posted this in the Cat forums I have been called a troll and

Well it looks like the Yam guys have more class.

Since I,m not very patient, and hate to wait 8 months to see one on the snow, it would be great to see one running on the tar over the summer. If anyonr finds a video of one on the tar, please post it on here.

Not sure why you think posting a magazine article should get you tared and feathered I think it will be a great motor and it's reliability after the " boy's " start pushing it has yet to be determined . Interesting that Yamaha describes cat as an engine share partner

Go to the cat forum on here and read the post in the 4stroke section.
It will answer your question.
Lots of know it all's with insider info and mind reading tricks that have already seen the future and know how it will work out.
To be honest, i read the post yesterday and i can honestly say i am now dumber because of it.

Not sure which post you are referring to but yes I agree a lot of know it alls although in my experience the majority of them seem to be trolls who don't even own cats and the ones who don't want anyone to know what they ride are generally the worst .
