- 3-Cylinder Mid Performance engine
Our Genesis®Mid Performance engine is the next generation of trail cruising powerplants. Designed from the start to be the ultimate trail engine package, this Mid Performance engine delivers simplicity, fuel economy and great performance. The advanced fuel injection system automatically keeps it running at maximum output and fuel efficiency for the conditions.
- Advanced fuel injection
The Genesis Mid Performance engine uses Yamaha’s 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.
- Engine braking reduction system
The Genesis Mid Performance engine features the unique Engine Braking Reduction System. The system allows a small amount of air to pass through the fuel injection system when the throttle is released, giving riders a “coast” feeling.
- Rear-exiting exhaust
The exhaust is routed out the back of the sled in order to optimize and maximize airflow through the engine. The tuned system is specifically engineered to produce the Mid Performance engine’s broad powerband and also to help keep the sled in balance.
- Direct-to-crankshaft clutching
Instead of using a gear reduction, the Mid Performance engine has the primary clutch directly attached to the crankshaft. This eliminates parts, complexity and weight, resulting in a better product for consumers. It also allows the engine to be mounted deeper in the chassis to deliver a lower center of gravity, further improving the sled’s cornering stability. The YVXC primary spins at 8000 RPM to transfer power from the engine to the secondary and down to the track.
- 15 x 121 x 1.25-inch Camoplast® Rip Saw™ track
The Camoplast® Rip Saw™ track is a standard feature on the RS Vector. 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 development is the result of a collaborative effort between Yamaha and Camoplast®.
- Extrovert drive sprockets
Churning the track is a pair of factory-engineered extrovert drive sprockets. The engineering team purpose-built these sprockets to work with the Rip Saw™ track to further reduce noise and vibration.
- Oil Pressure Sensing System
The RS Vector 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.
