2012 Yamaha VENTURE LITE
- Sport Performance 4-stroke engine
Lightweight, dependable and fun, the Sport Performance engine’s high tech design puts down sport horsepower performance on the trail and off. Powering in the distinctive Phazer family of sleds, this 2-cylinder engine is quick-revving and very torquey for sporty acceleration. The advanced fuel injection system automatically keeps it running at maximum output and fuel efficiency for the conditions.
- Advanced fuel injection
The Sport Performance engine uses an advanced fuel injection system to control fuel flow to the engine. Consumers will enjoy the engine’s spot-on performance and throttle response as a result of the advanced electronic fuel injection system.
- Lightweight, counterbalanced crankshaft
The Sport Performance engine’s crankshaft is designed to be light weight, responsive and durable. The lightweight, counterbalanced crankshaft delivers super-crisp throttle response and quick acceleration. It also helps mitigate the vibration inherent in a 2-cylinder engine.
- Lightweight, rear-exiting exhaust
The exhaust from the Sport Performance engine is routed out the rear of the sled, similar to the other 4-stroke engine packages. The rear exiting exhaust design serves three purposes. First, it keeps the exhaust heat out of the engine bay to allow a super-compact design. Second, it allows the engine to breathe more efficiently and through a cooled exhaust pipe. Finally, it helps to balance the overall sled package, giving the Venture Lite its amazingly nimble handling.
- 15 x 144 x 1.25-inch Camoplast® Rip Saw™ track
The Camoplast® Rip Saw™ track is a standard feature on the Venture Lite. It has been widely acclaimed in the industry as the best all around OEM track for acceleration, cornering bite and everyday trail usage. The Rip Saw™ track is the result of a collaborative effort between Yamaha and Camoplast®.
- Radiator and front extrusion
In order to generate consistently strong engine performance, all Sport Performance engine sleds feature a small radiator on the right hand side of the engine cab and a front extrusion. The use of a small radiator improves the sled’s cooling system function, which means greater engine durability. It also enhances the sled’s handling by relocating the mass of a rear heat exchanger up to the central portion of the sled.
- Oil Pressure Sensing System
The Venture Lite is fitted with an oil pressure sensing system. If the oil pressure drops while riding, the ignition and fuel supply is controlled to limit the engine’s rpm and reduce the load on the engine. If necessary the system will stop the engine.
