I want to shift!!! And I live in the EAST in some of the steepest, nastiest, rockiest hollows and ridges you can imagine!!! NO belts! Manual clutch with Rekluse option and a wide ratio transmission with a LOW 1st gear.Why don't you have both manual and cvt, that should satisfy everyone and both coasts!!
Wouldn't that be awesome if you had your choice? Seems like it would be a win win for everyone.
I agree. Their CVT's are pretty bulletproof and perform very well in the snowmobile world. I'm running at 250hp and I haven't had any issues with my clutches.I don't mind the shifting but also don't mind the cvt. Yamaha already has the know how on cvt, it was just a thought so they could make yxz very versatile..
I guess a 6 speed with a low first gear would work also for the guys not riding west coast dunes.
