Did he mention anything about ignition timing changes or fuel management settings?Just got a email from the person who actually did the testing on the Viking. He said he seen an average increase of 4mph. Also, said factory has rev limiter at 7000rpm. The commander raises the rpm 500rpm. 7500rpm total.
The big change with the rhino was going to a machined sheave but from what I gather the Viking seems to already have that set up. Seems like they may of copied an aftermarket design for the Viking. Weights and springs in the CVT will really only change your shifting points to accommodate bigger tires and things like that. I'm waiting for a clutch kit to come out before I move to bigger tires along with a new ignition just to give that little extra power to turn the big tires.Hmmm... About $100 per mph. On a side note, will changing/adding weights on the cvt, increase mph much?
He did mention changing the fuel map, however he didn't go into detail. He did however say this " The Viking on 91 octane liked 6 degrees of increased timing over factory, it gained a few extra hp"Did he mention anything about ignition timing changes or fuel management settings?
You are clearly not informed enough. The viking getting its engine started is grounds for the heat shield, but not big deal we are past that. Yamaha is slow to act on this and us informed owners has took the steps nessecary for extended life and safety.I find it interesting that the viking gets ridden so hard for needing an aftermarket heat shield. All the while owners are going crazy with every other bolt on possible. Tires, snorkel, lights, chip, exhaust, omg heat shield. Mine runs great for now. Cant wait to do all that stuff.
