Unsure if this is their official site so take it for what its worth.   They've been awfully quiet.

Like them or not they are good for the sport.   The more sled mfg's we have the more competition and better technology.

I hated my SRX. The ride quality is flat out garbage for a 18K snowmobile. I was so bitterly disappointed in the ride quality and the weight of the SRX I broomed it after riding 400 miles. While the 850 I own doesn't have to power it outshines the SRX in every other way

Is the Yammie as good as ride quality as the Doo rear?   Nope.   Is it really good when it gets set up properly.   Yep.   

Personally I think the Yammie comes real close to the doo when you let the limiter out and get the shocks and cam set right.   I went beyond the factory adjustment by about an 1".   Let the center shock work more and had no impact on pushing.   I also sent to doo pilot 6.9's.  I've also pulled my transfer blocks and just have the shaft left in.  

No question you have to tune the Yammie to get it close to about any setting in the Doo but once you get there its really good.   If you know what you are doing and have good seat sense one ride tells you the adjustments that need done.

Friend of mine just bought an 900T Enduro like mine because his sidewinder is always in the shop.

Did have mine pivot down to my knee's launching off a roller coaster at about 90.   Pucker factor much.   It was all my fault for not getting them quite tight enough after adjusting them from the factory.

I haven't owned a Yamaha since my 1999 SRX 700 that I bought new but I agree with HM that they are needed in the sled biz.

The whole steering post broke off of her sled for fatigue I'm guessing. Her husband decided to tear his Yammy apart after this happened to her sled . This what he foundNo photo description available.No photo description available.

It's not close and it's not good. I had the best shock spring combination offered to date on a sidewinder. I road my buddies 2017 LTX LE  and the SRX was much better than that and it still sucked. I've ridden all the same trails between Munising and the Soo this year on both with almost Identical conditions from great to shitty and the SRX doesn't hold a Candle to this XRS gade. I was so bitterly sad about the ride quality of the SRX. The power and look of the SRX are hypnotizing. I wanted the SRX to be a home run. It's not.

Interesting.  Wonder if its a Viper problem?   Not seeing anything on TY4stroke on the Winders.

I road Yamaha from 1997 to 2012. I've owned a Yamaha 242 Limited S Jet Boat, A raptor and 18 different Yamaha sleds, I love Yamaha. I'm currently looking at a 242X jet boat. I would love nothing more than to ride a Yamaha sled again. They just don't hold a candle to the DOO or POO.

Like I said to each his own and setup makes a huge difference.   What changes did you try?

I got 2 Renegades one is a 16 XRS and like I said their ride quality is fantastic but once dialed in the Winder is pretty close.   I've put well over 1000 miles on each and some days hop from one to the next.   I probably more a doo guy than anything so I'm not being pro Yammie biased in any way.
