"Another question from the show… ECU calibration. The ECU is the same on Viper as it is in the 7000, horsepower output is identical. How it is put to the ground is another story.

That's what I said cat mapping. Yamaha did the mapping on previous sleds using that same motor with not one problem.

Thanks. I'll try and find out what that cold weather kit is about. The temperature outside is -38 degrees as we speak, and this is fairly common. I've known a few nitro guys that actually had to build a heated shack around their snowmobiles to get them going.

What you said was "That's arctic at mapping. No problem with vipers. "
Funny there's no problem with Vipers, but they use the same map.

"How it is put to the ground" is talking about the clutching. There is a fairly big difference with clutching. We are not even able to switch the Yammie secondary because of the jackshaft being different. The Yammie primary is a solid piece and I'm curious to see results on how the clutching is working.

I would love to ride the two variations for some miles. I think we have a great trail sled with either combo.

We stopped to eat and noticed other riders coming in with snow jammed in their helmets, jackets and gloves. They had snow everywhere. We looked out the door and couldn't see across the street. Six inches of snow fell while we ate a few burgers. That was the start of a great ride.

A lot of guys wiil say their sleds start fine when it's cold out, but -35 or so is *@$%^@! cold. There's a huge difference once you pass -20. I'm not chiming in about Yammis starting when it's that cold. Most 4s sleds don't like it that cold. Hell, most vehicles don't like it either.
