    Yamaha 3 cylinder engines have bad reputation in sled, and recently talking to an owner of wave rider the same. The slightest issue in fuel system takes out a cylinder. Stick to 2 cylinders at the most for reliability, speed isn't necessary at that level.

    I would trade my X2 tomorrow if it's got the right equipment, that would be the only way.

    Knock on wood I have not had any issues with the Waverunner although it is a 2016 and I'm really liking the 2019-2020 models hmm

    I believe you have been misinformed. The Yamaha YXZ 3 cylinder is a high rpm work horse.

    Many wish they could build a engine that will turn up the rpm of Yamaha's triple.

    Number of cylinders doesn't really dictate horsepower or speed necessarily. The Talon 2 cylinder is close in horsepower to the Yamaha 3 cylinder. Funny you say we don't need that level as both Yamaha and Honda already have factory turbo kits available to boost the horsepower even more and a bunch more.

    The Yamaha 3 cylinder in the YXZ's doesn't have fuel issue taking out cylinders that I ever recall reading about.

    https://www.yxztalk.com/forums/yxz-engine.25/ Here are thousands of post on the YXZ engine. Look through them and try to find even one.

    The whole 999cc max limit for recreational off road is bullshit and should have never been passed. How is it they can run twice that size on the water in personal water craft. WTF !!!

    These babies put out some power. We could only hope and pray it's the engine they choose to power their next trail machine. YXZ engine through a CVT is a bad biotch. The Wildcat XX isn't exactly a slouch with Yamaha's 3 cylinder and CVT in it.

    Exactly. Can you imagine a Wolverine CVT type trail machine with the balls of a Wildcat XX. Sounds like a fun time to me.
    They make plenty down low too for a engine that will turn 10,500. They will rip the tires off right off idle so not sure it needs more torque. Almost forced to run 4 wheel drive on the tight trails if your getting in it a lot as is does get squirrely.

    I’m waiting on the perfect trail machine with ground clearance, wheel travel, and a bit of hauling capacity (and no offense to their triple, it has its place) but if they stick that screamer in a trail machine, IM OUT!

    You want all that and a wimpy engine. 112 hp isn't that much for a trail machine. Certainly they would tone it down a little into a trail engine.

    Single throttle body, different cams and little less compression and some tuning and the Yamaha 999cc 3 cylinder could be a fine trail engine.


    Mated to a CVT with trail ratio's the Yamaha 3 cylinder would actually provide excellent drivability. It wouldn't be much different if you drove it light footed than any other trail machine but when you wanna go at least it will get out of it's own way.

    The Wolverine has always been a letdown in the power department. They are spending loads of cash engineering turbo kits for the 850 and it still would not probably not do what the stock 3 cylinder will. With that kind of investment there must be a lot of people looking for serious wheelspin when they put the hammer down.
