Default Yamaha Nytro or 2014 Viper

So I was wonder how reliable are the 1049 engines how many miles do they go I’m seriously thinking of buying one after next season I’m done with 2 strokes and I already have 2 thousand save up so I am serious. Are the Nytro and Viper reliable and good sleds

I know of one, that went 99,958 miles when it was retired. Still running strong. If they would have replaced the timing chain at 78,000 like they were going to, it would have went the whole way untouched. They replaced the chain and some valves at 83,000.

the viper will be on a better seating position if you ride beat up trails and or are more aggressive rider!
so something to think about maybe before deciding on what motor or model to look at!

BOTH motors have been known to last a while, but like all things HOW there cared for matters a LOT on anything, 2 stroke or 4 for that matter!

Ok thanks guys I’m going to sell my rmk after this winter she was a good one I’m thinking of a 2014 sr Viper xtx. I would make sure all the updates are done. Would they be a good trail and backcountry sled like for just playing in the fields and woods in like 2 feet of snow. Are they as heavy as everone says cause my fiends are oh it’s a Yamaha. It’s heavy when they still have a 1996 rxl 650 that’s heavy. But remember I’m 15 so I don’t care about what name the shocks are on it so would this be a good sled for me

The Nytro is an antique in comparison, the Viper is also though compared to other modern sleds. If you aren't riding miles that make us all jealous then the 4 stroke reliability advantage isn't real.

I'd test ride a Viper this winter and then an equivalent 2 stroke from either Poo or Doo. You'll never buy the Viper if you do.

it would depend on what model viper you get, the standard one is NOT the best for off trail, the XTX will be a much better for off trail!

and you want a 15 and up, that has more of the upgrades done to them !
have a look on the yamaha forum and there is a ton of info on the vipoers and upgrades to them!

a tip over device is also something you should have if riding a lot of trail!
