SR viper Issues

I recently test drove Arctic Cat and SR viper. I have to say Yamaha definitely need to be schooled on the Viper set up. The Cats were a dream to ride. I didnt want to get off. I took three trips during the Arctic demo tour and tried three Xf 7000 versions and one Zr sno pro turbo.

However the SRViper just did not compare. I couldnt get off it fast enough. Extreme darting and clutching made it impossible to navigate corners. At half point in the demo ride I switched off the rode a RS vector. It was hands down a better ride all around. They are not going to get any sales by bringing these to the table. Either they total pooched the awesome Cat chassis or their tech people need a good boot in the arse for not setting up the sleds properly.

All in the setup. they pretty much sold out of them. I have talked to numerous Viper owners and they love them. Good for Yami. Good for Cat.

Not the experience I had at ALL....the Viper's I rode ...and the Cat's I rode were very similar...both good...in fact the Viper I tested had the dual tuner skis...and cornered better than the CAT, with less darting....and the Viper...seat of the pants wise...felt faster.

Definately a set-up problem with your dealer.
