Yamaha Marine VX Sport - Personal Water Craft Boat Features
New 2014 Yamaha Marine - VX Sport - Personal Water Craft
2011 Yamaha Marine VX Sport Standard FeaturesThe Powerplant
The VX Sport is powered by a Yamaha MR-1 four-stroke engine.
This is a compact, ultra-lightweight, four-cylinder, 1052cc, DOHC, 20-valve, liquid-cooled engine for class-leading performance.
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI):
Delivers smooth, high power output with low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions.
Specially Designed, One-piece Cylinder and Crankcase Assembly:
Provides tremendous engine rigidity that's lighter and stiffer than two-piece designs.
Slant Detection Switch:
Slant Detection Switch: Electronic switch stops engine and oil pumps immediately if watercraft becomes overturned, protecting motor from water ingestion.
Dry Sump Lubrication:
Uses two engine oil pumps to deliver lubricated oil to each moving part with water-jacketed sump and oil backflow protection.
Thermostatic and Pressure Controlled Cooling System:
Water flow through the engine is controlled by a thermostat and pressure system and is maintained by a pressure control valve.
Corrosion Protection System:
Sacrificial zinc anodes protect the engine from harmful galvanic corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners (nuts, bolts, hardware) provide a long service life.
Electronically Controlled, Variable Ignition Timing:
For exact ignition advance control at all throttle positions and RPMs.
The Jet Pump Propulsion System
The VX pump design is one of the most efficient pump configurations ever:
The pump increases stream velocity and thrust while decreasing cavitation and prop spin.
Stainless Steel Impeller Housing Liner:
For high durability, the liner maintains accurate clearance tolerances between the impeller and the housing.
High Flow Intake Duct and Grate:
The dynamic shape of these items directs water flow into the pump for better thrust, performance and hook up.
Cooling Water Intake Filter:
Filters out harmful debris that could cause blockage of important cooling water passages.
Pumps are Manufactured with YDC30:
A combination of zinc and copper alloys, developed by Yamaha marine engineers, that offers excellent corrosion protection.
The Ultra-Lightweight, High Strength Hull and Deck
The VX Sport hull is designed to be light and strong.
Progressive, V-Hull with Integrated Bow Spray Guard:
Provides excellent maneuverability, handling and comfort.
Performance Sponson Design:
Provides added straight-line comfort and an improved two-up and three-up riding experience.
Multi-function Electronic Information Center:
Provides the operator a quick read on speed, RPM, fuel level, low fuel warning, low oil pressure warning, overheat warning, hour meter, check engine light with self diagnostic function.
15 Gallons of Total Storage:
Includes a large bow storage locker and glovebox.
Comfortable One-piece Seat:
Ergonomically-designed and contoured for added support. The extra-long seat is easily removed for quick access to the engine compartment.
Extra Large Boarding Platform:
Provides a stable platform for reboarding.
Finger Throttle Lever:
Provides added comfort while reducing hand fatigue.
Yamaha's Trademarked Visibility Spout:
A waterspout from the rear of the craft that improves the watercraft's conspicuity.
