2003 Yamaha Sx viper

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

To have a head turning reliable snow machine that has a more modern suspension package for my bad back (I had to have a fusion in my lower back 5 years ago)

What motivated you to start your project?

I love the reliability and reputation of a Yamaha 700 triple not to mention the sound 🙂

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

Complete 136 inch mono skid from a 09 vector that I completely disassembled, powder coated and reassembled and mounted into my tunnel, also did a tom Hartman tunnel extension and finished it off with a extra gas jug to get me home 🙂

What are you most proud of?

Fit and finish and how well this skid works in the sled, handling is night and day and with my back not what it use to be I can still get out for a decent trip and not be crippled at the end of the day. Also since I have stretched it to 136 from 121 I can feel more comfortable taking it off trail without the fear of getting stuck.

What do other people say about your sled?

They cant believe that its nearly 20 years old, It really looks like she belongs on the dealer show room floor and I’m very proud of her 🙂
