    Yamaha Viper M-TX Recall

    Yamaha has issued a recall notice for some 2015 Viper snowmobiles, as the brake line and its components can come in contact with the clutch, which can cause the brakes to fail.

    This recall involves the 2015 Viper L-TX (Model name SR10LSFO) and the 2015 Viper M-TX 162 LE (Model name SR10M62LFO) snowmobiles – about 200 models in total.

      Top 10 Things New Mountain Riders Should Know

      Last month, I traveled from Ontario, Canada to the Western United States to embark on an epic snowmobile adventure. The primary focus of this trip was to highlight the differences between trail riding in the midwest and mountain riding in the western mountains, while also promoting avalanche awareness and backcountry safety.

        2015 Polaris 800 RMK-Pro

        Polaris to announce all-new AXYS platform-based replacement for popular 2015 Pro-RMK this Friday.

        The Polaris snowmobile website is teasing an announcement of a new model, most likely some version of the Model Year 2016 RMK series, that will be announced on Friday, January 30th.

        The video teaser, which you can see below, announces a new RMK ostensibly based on an expansion of the AXYS platform. The teaser notes that the “all new king takes its throne” with dramatic improvements made to all the things that make the current Pro-RMK series work. The Polaris video teases the new 2016 Rocky Mountain King will offer: instantaneous lift; rider balanced control, and immediate response. These are the stated hallmarks of the AXYS Rush and Switchback series of trail sleds for 2015.
