Yamaha venture mp
« on: Oct 09, 2019, 06:23 PM »
Any one here familiar with this one? Found a 2014 cheap with very low mileage, ugly as my exes half sister but it's a 2 up utility sled that I've been wanting.

Ugly? I think they look cool!  Ive had mine 6 years, been a great sled.  Sometimes I worry about no pull start, but it starts every time. Lots of power and is pretty easy to load and move around.

Any issues or things to look for for?? Our new to us MP is coming home Thursday,  probably check the battery date and if its older I'll get a new one of those right away.

Not a single issue.  I have less than 500 miles on it, I just use it to tool around the farm and for ice fishing.  Not a trail rider. 
Good luck with yours!

I am not sure where you are located. I am in Central NY and we do get a lot of snow, but some areas can have a lot more.  I have not had any issues with the front end bogging down or getting through snow drifts.  I am usually pulling a Clam Yukon loaded with gear and just me.  Sometimes a second person.  On the lakes I go on the snow usually drifts off from the wind anyway.  Like any sled without studs, I can slide on the ice but I am almost always under 15mph and say in control.  I did melt my track to the sliders on one very bare ice day, lesson learned about carrying the proper tools just in case.  I added scratchers but they donít really work too well.   I am thinking of studding the track this year as it is mostly an ice fishing sled.
If you are going on lots of unbroken trails and back country, bigger skis will help for sure.  But for my uses I have not had the need.
