2013 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4x4 Camo AP HD Review


The Rhino boasts a powerful fuel-injected, 686cc, four-valve engine mated to Yamaha's patented Ultramatic® transmission, complete with the simple to use "On-Command®" 4WD switching.

Comfortable bucket seats and familiar automotive-type controls make driving the Rhino as easy as it is fun. Fully independent long-travel suspension front and back, 305mm or 12" of ground clearance and super strong four-wheel disc brakes ensure that when the terrain gets tough, the Yamaha Rhino shines.

2013 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4x4 Camo AP HD Key Features:


• Fuel injected engine
• 4-wheel disc brakes
• All Purpose High Definition Camouflage

2013 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4x4 Camo AP HD Features and Benefits:
Big Bore Fuel Injected Engine
• 686cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 4-valve, fuel injected, 4-stroke single is a proven performer with excellent performance and an incredible durability record

• Mikuni 41mm throttle body fuel injection provides the precise fuel/air mixture regardless of outside air temperature or altitude. Other FI benefits include crisp throttle response, choke-free cold starting, great fuel economy and reduced emissions.

• The engine's "mid ship" location centralizes mass in the centre of the Rhino for responsive handling and great suspension performance.

• Key operated electric starting and maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI) mean fast sure starts and great engine performance at all rpms.

• Four-valve combustion chamber design maximizes breathing efficiency providing a potent combination of low-rpm torque and right-now throttle response.

• Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces mechanical engine noise and reduces maintenance.

• Lightweight "liner-less" cylinder features ceramic composite plating applied directly to the aluminum block. This is the "sleeve" or bore the piston travels in. Benefits include, reduced weight, superior heat dissipation, and reduced friction

• Lightweight forged piston rides on a carburized, chrome-moly connecting rod for great durability.

• Dual engine counterbalancers and rubber-damper engine mounts reduce vibration to a minimum for great operator and passenger comfort.

• Easy access, no tools required air box makes it simple to service the re-useable foam air filter. The air filter intake is located under the front hood and helps to reduce intake noise for even greater rider and passenger comfort. Plus it is high mounted to avoid water ingestion.

• High capacity aluminium radiator with ring-type cooling fan delivers maximum cooling efficiency even during hot slow speed work days.

• Forward mounted aluminium oil cooler maintains consistent lubricant temperatures for great engine durability. Both the main radiator and oil cooler are located high and inboard of the main frame for extra protection.

• Convenient automotive style spin-on oil filter.
• Quiet, full stainless steel exhaust system resists corrosion and features a screen-type spark arrestor to protect the environment.

Ultramatic Transmission
Fully automatic Ultramatic™ transmission is the most advanced drive system in the ORV world. Not only is it simple to use . . . select a forward gear, step on the gas pedal and go, but it also provides downhill engine braking, reducing brake wear while also providing excellent control. The key feature of Yamaha's exclusive Ultramatic CVT system is the V-belt is under constant tension (unlike a snowmobile CVT) and therefore provides superior no-slip right now performance, all wheel downhill engine braking and significantly reduced belt wear.

• Easy to use, console mounted "automotive style" shift lever … just like on a car.

• Fully automatic "Ultramatic" CVT (constantly variable transmission) offers reverse, neutral, high and low ranges. The low range mode improves towing power while also improving "terrain ability" in difficult conditions.

• Sealed CVT belt case keeps out water and debris to help prevent belt slippage and wear. Convenient no tools required belt case drain plug … just in case.

• CVT cooling ducts (intake and exhaust) are high-mounted to help prevent water and mud from entering the system while also keeping CVT components cool. Special fan design on the primary clutch sheave also reduces CVT temperatures for extended belt life

• Straight design front and rear drive shafts provide more efficient power delivery and eliminate the need for "U" joints. The drive shafts exit on a straight line from the engine to the differentials

On Command Drive System
Servo-controlled 3 - position "On-Command" system allows you to switch between 3 drive modes including 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked 4WD (both front & rear diff locked) - all with a turn of a convenient dash mounted knob. Yamaha's "On-Command" system puts you in total control... you decide which is the best drive mode for the terrain ... not the machine.

• Dash mounted "On-Command" button and indicator light lets you know what mode you are in.
• Lightweight, compact front differential

Chassis and Suspension
• Full square and round tube steel frame is rugged and durable.
• Independent double "A" arm front and rear suspension provides excellent ride comfort
• Heavy duty shocks feature 5-way spring preload adjustability.
• Front and rear wheel travel is 185mm or 7.3"
• Minimum ground clearance is 280mm or 11" for great terrain ability

4 Wheel Disc Brakes
A single automotive-style brake pedal activates the front and rear hydraulic disc brakes. This 4 wheel disc brake system provides outstanding stopping performance in a variety of conditions. All four discs are tucked inside the rims to prevent damage from rocks, stumps etc.

• Dual 200mm front and dual 185mm rear disc brakes squeezed by twin piston calipers provide excellent stopping power
• Convenient console mounted automotive-style parking brake lever with dash board warning light
• Parking brake system utilizes a drive shaft mounted disc located inboard just behind the engine

Heavy Ducy 4ply 25" Tires
• Aggressive AT25X8-12 front and 25x10-12 rear tires provide excellent off road traction in a wide variety of conditions
• Rugged, durable steel wheels
• Heavy duty 4 ply tire design increases puncture resistance and tire stiffness
• Note: although these tires look like ATV tires they have a much higher load rating than a standard ATV tire.

Cargo Bed
"Tilt able" cargo bed can pack a total of 181 kgs or 400lbs of payload. The inner panels and floor of the bed are steel. Rubber bed mat helps prevent scratches and dents.

• Convenient single lever tilt design … makes dumping heavy loads easy
• Four tie down points inside the bed for added load security

Comfort and Safety
• Convenient automotive "control" layout. Shifter, parking brake, gas and brake pedals and keyed ignition are just like on a car, for ease of use and familiarity
• Light, responsive rack-and-pinion steering features a fully sealed steering column and double U-jointed steering linkage for smooth, easy operation.
• Operator and passenger 3 point seat belts
• Multiple grab handles for added passenger security on rough terrain
• Rugged rotomolded doors and hip supports / restraints on seat edges

2014 Yamaha V-Star 950 Review

2014 Yamaha V-Star 950 Key Features


1. V Star 950 is the benchmark in the entry cruiser class, appealing to seasoned riders as well as those looking for a friendly entry-level cruiser. The air-cooled V-twin delivers plenty of distinctive, big-cruiser character and pulsing torque feel. Seat height is an extra-low 26.6 inches. The full-sized chassis has a long, low look and provides spacious comfort. Handling is sporty and responsive, great for curvy back roads and commuting around town as well as open-highway cruising.

2. The 942cc 60° V-twin engine is both simple and sophisticated. Sure, there’s no-fuss air cooling for traditional looks. But inside you’ll find the reason for the surprisingly spirited performance: four-valve cylinder heads, ceramic-composite-lined cylinders, forged aluminum pistons, and fuel injection. The meticulously tuned 2-into-1 exhaust system has a throaty exhaust note, and also 3-way catalyst technology to reduce air pollution.

3. The carefully designed chassis contributes to an exceptionally light feeling riders are sure to appreciate. The double-cradle steel main frame offers an ideal rigidity balance in the longitudinal, lateral, and torsional directions, using the engine as a stressed member. With the engine mounting position slightly forward for optimum front-rear weight distribution and its large, 18-inch front wheel, V Star 950 has outstanding handling performance.

4. The V Star 950 achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg* with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas.

5. Fender are real steel, front and rear. That adds to the quality look and feel, and makes customization easier.

Power
942cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4-valves per cylinder, 60° V-twin engine produces outstanding low- and mid-range torque - maximum torque is reached at only 3,500 rpm - for exceptional cruising performance.

Performance
One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to provide optimum volumetric or filling efficiency for maximum power output. More fuel / air mixture entering the combustion chamber means increased power output.

2014 Yamaha V-Star 950 Features and Benefits

ENGINE


• 942cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4-valves per cylinder, 60° V-twin engine produces outstanding low- and mid-range torque - maximum torque is reached at only 3,500 rpm - for exceptional cruising performance.
• One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to provide optimum volumetric or filling efficiency for maximum power output. More fuel / air mixture entering the combustion chamber means increased power output. Two smaller intake valves allow more air flow than a single large valve. Two smaller valves (lighter) also allow for higher rpms before valve float.
• Pent roof type combustion design with optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber (and the centrally located long reach spark plug) for faster, more complete combustion and hence improved power and reduced emissions.
• Cylinder heads feature buff polished fins for a quality appearance, while the cylinder head covers are chromed.
• The SOHC valve train features 31.5mm intake and 28mm exhaust valves with single valve springs which reduce friction and power losses. Specially designed "Y" shaped rocker arms activate the valves. The roller rocker system utilizes needle bearings that "roll" directly on the cam lobes allowing the lift of 2 valves at the same time without producing excessive camshaft wear and friction.
• Auto adjusting cam chain tensioners are used to reduce mechanical engine noise and maintenance
• Lightweight "liner-less" aluminium cylinders feature ceramic composite plating for superior heat dissipation for excellent cooling, less friction, reduced weight and longer engine life.
• Single pin style crankshaft is used to enhance engine character and exhaust note.
• Flat top, lightweight forged aluminium pistons provide excellent durability while reducing reciprocating mass for fast throttle response.
• Wet sump oil delivery system features an easy access spin-on type oil filter. A traditional dipstick is used to check oil level.
• Classic side mounted, large capacity, 3 litre air box houses an easy access, high-flow viscous paper-type filter. Its design highlights and compliments the V-twin engine appearance. The outer cover is chromed.
• Dual bore, 35mm throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control). This is a "closed loop" system that utilizes a heated oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor "sniffs" the spent exhaust and feeds back info to the ECU which in turn adjusts the fuel/air mixture for maximum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of aftermarket slip-on mufflers will not affect this system.
• 4-hole, 2-directional spray, Denso fuel injectors are used for excellent fuel atomization and more complete combustion chamber filling. There is one injector per cylinder.
• Fuel injection benefits include improved fuel economy; choke-less starting, reduced emissions, and smoother drivability. The XVS950 has been tuned to provide a very "linear" throttle response for easy riding.
• Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (T.C.I.) provides a hot spark for sure starts and strong engine performance.
• Powerful 32 bit ECU controls the ignition and fuel injection processes
• Stylish 2 into 1 exhaust system features a 3-way honeycomb-type catalyzer at the entry point to the muffler. The catalyser reduces harmful exhaust emissions, while the "dual stage type" muffler produces a low, throaty V-Twin exhaust note.
• Multi-plate "outer pull type'" wet clutch is used. Lever pull is light and easy.
• 5-speed transmission features optimized gear ratios for excellent city and highway drivability. Transmission gears use "straight cut dogs" for smooth, positive shifting. 5th gear delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speed
• One piece classic heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience.
• Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt features "Aramid" cords for excellent strength and reduced stretching.
• Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful CO and HC exhaust emissions.
• Numerous chromed engine parts reinforce this motorcycle's quality image.

Chassis/Suspension
• Double cradle steel frame offers roomy ergonomics, great handling and a low seat height. This frame utilizes a 4-point rigid engine mounting system to optimize the overall rigidity balance for superior handling. The engine is a stressed member of the frame. Rake is 32 degrees. The engine is mounted low in the chassis to provide a low center of gravity for a light, easy handling feel.
• "Box section" steel swingarm compliments the frame.
• The V-Star 950 features one of the lowest seat heights in its class (675mm / 26.6"), making it very easy for most riders to place both feet flat on the ground, an important benefit for novice or shorter riders.
• The long (1685mm / 66") wheelbase provides very stable and precise handling at all speeds. Both of these benefits will help instil confidence in novice riders.
• "New Style Classic" body design concept is based on a single streamline running along the entire body surface. This stylish design highlights a new low, lean, and lighter image than conventional old style cruisers. The long, low design means spacious ergonomics with lots of leg room, which maximizes both rider and passenger comfort.
• Beefy 41mm front fork features stylish large-diameter brushed-finished fork covers. Wheel travel is 135mm (5.3") for a smooth, comfortable ride.
• Monocross style, single-shock, bottom link rear suspension centralizes mass for light, agile handling. The linkage system provides a rising rate or progressive effect that provides excellent compliance on small bumps then increases in firmness for large bumps.
• Spring preload adjustable rear shock is vertically mounted behind the engine and is tucked out of sight for that clean, classic "hardtail" look. Rear wheel travel is 110mm (4.3"). The 9 positions of spring preload adjustment allows the rider to tailor spring preload to suit rider weight, load and road conditions.
• Single, large 320mm front disc brake features a pin slide-type caliper with twin pistons for strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.
• 298mm rear disc brake is squeezed by single piston caliper mounted to the underside of the swingarm. This design not only helps to hide the caliper but also lowers the center of gravity for light handling.
• 1 inch diameter handlebars are easy to reach and enhance the riding position for excellent rider comfort. Chromed bar end weights reduce vibration for excellent rider comfort.
• 17 litre teardrop shaped fuel tank compliments the long, low "New Style Classic" body lines. The reserve portion of the tank is 3.7 litres.
• Separate rider and passenger seats offers excellent comfort and support for all day riding fun. Rider seat height is only 675mm or 26.6 inches off the ground. The front portion of the rider seat is narrow to make it even easier to touch the ground. The passenger portion of the seat can easily be removed if desired.
• Front and rear fenders are made of steel for easy customization and demonstrate the quality of build.
• Full-size, "floating-type" rider floorboards are roomy and comfortably positioned while also helping to reduce vibration. There is a replaceable "scraper" area on the lower edge of the board.
• Lightweight 8-spoke cast aluminium wheels are fitted with wide tubeless tires. These stylish wheels feature a "split" spoke design. Front wheel is 3.50 inches wide fitted with a 130/70x 18 bias tire, while the rear is 4.5 inches wide fitted with a 170/70x 16 bias tire.
• Stylish fuel tank mounted instrument features an analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, low fuel tripmeter, clock and low fuel warning light. The instrument illumination can adjusted to suit the rider's preference via the RHS switch gear.
• Fuel tank mounted instrument features an analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, low fuel tripmeter, clock and low fuel warning light. The instrument illumination can be adjusted to suit the rider's preference via the RHS switch gear.
• Handlebar switch gear allows the operator to change instrument meter functions via buttons on the RHS handlebar switch, thereby eliminating the need to take your hands off the bars to "tab through" the main instrument functions.
• 60/55 watt halogen headlight emphasizes the "New Style Classic" body styling. The headlight is adjustable up and down plus left and right.
• "New Style Classic" taillight design.

Details
• Industry-leading Star family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents.
• Low-maintenance, sealed battery ensures fuss-free, dependable starting.
• Extra wide brushed aluminium front brake and clutch levers provide a quality feel.
• High output 460 watt generator
