2023 Yamaha Mountain Max LE 154 Top Features
Mountain Single Beam Suspension: The long, 14-inch travel rear suspension features a lightweight single-beam skid frame to provide exceptional handling in the deep and steep. This advanced skid frame features a single pivot at the midpoint of the rail which runs down the center line of the track. The resulting track flexibility and balance point is realized in precise handling response. It’s never been easier to throw a carve, regardless of pitch or incline. The single-rail system is over 10 pounds lighter by design and doesn’t trap snow compared to conventional dual-rail suspensions, keeping the sled much lighter in real-world conditions.
Premium Fox Zero QS3 Shock Package: Fox Zero QS3 shock package, coil-spring, high-pressure gas shocks feature a piggyback chamber to deliver reduced fading, exceptional control, and three easy-to-adjust compression damping performance settings, so you can quickly and easily adjust the ride to conditions and your riding preference.
Mountain Seat: Lightweight with a tall and narrow profile, the M-TX mountain seat is both shorter and more tapered towards the front than our standard trail seat. This allows for easier rider transitions from side-to-side, and improved stand-up ergonomics.

The 10.6-gallon / 40.1-liter tank provides plenty of fuel capacity.
Lightweight with a tall and narrow profile, the M-TX mountain seat is both shorter and more tapered towards the front than our standard trail seat. This allows for easier rider transitions from side-to-side, and improved stand-up ergonomics.
Full-featured and easy to read, the digital gauge displays critical information in a glance including speed, fuel level, trip mileage, tach, elevation, temperatures and more. Changing functions is made easy with the switch controls on the left handlebar.
A simple push of a button causes the engine to restart in reverse. The audible ‘back-up’ beeper indicates the reverse system is engaged and continues to beep until the button is pushed again to restart the engine in its forward direction. A simple, lightweight and efficient way to back out of a tight situation.
Additional storage is provided by a convenient under-seat bag. The semi-rigid design is easy to access and water resistant to keep your spares safe and dry. Quarter-turn, quick release fasteners are provided to make removal a snap.
Fox 1.5 Zero QS3 coil-spring, high-pressure gas shocks feature a piggyback chamber to deliver reduced fading, exceptional control, and three easy-to-adjust compression damping performance settings, so you can quickly and easily adjust the ride to conditions and your riding preference.
This 154-inch long, single-ply, PowerClaw track uses 2.6-inch lugs in a 2.86-inch pitch configuration. The forward curved, slightly stouter paddles are preferred when the powder is heavier to resist folding, providing the lift you need to stay on top. The 154-inch profile provides back-country agility with a good balance of lightweight float and maneuverability.
The power valve system tunes the exhaust port opening based on RPM to ensure maximum torque and fuel efficiency across the power band.
Electronic fuel injection provides efficient fuel delivery to the cylinder based on engine RPM for maximum torque and response. The computerized fuel injection ensures reliable cold weather starting, maximum fuel range with low exhaust gas emissions.
The sleek SRV-M Front Suspension is ultra-compact to reduce unwanted spindle and suspension component drag in deep snow. The narrow stance allows for extreme maneuverability and delivers aggressive lean angles for incredible side-hilling and powder turn capabilities. The lightweight, forged aluminum spindles join the widely spaced upper and lower control arms producing a large caster angle for tight side-hilling and ease of steering. The clean, narrow overall stance and elimination of the sway bar also greatly enhances deep snow agility.
We’ve covered everything right down to the new low drag snow flap.
The mountain specific SRV-M chassis combines a load-bearing triangulated structure with lightweight aluminum construction to create a neutrally balanced sled that’s centered on the rider. The pyramidal upper frame creates chassis strength without excessive weight. Additional bracing is added to the ‘punched’ running boards for those who tend to take their ride to the max.
A dedicated, tall steering post delivers optimum ergonomics for standup riding. The 5.5-inch riser with broad, molded, curved-end mountain bar and incorporated mountain strap deliver ample leverage for off-trail riding. The system is adjustable to dial in sweep and reach to help keep you in the sweet spot.
The SRV chassis layout was engineered with the goal of centralizing mass. Approximately 60 percent of the sled’s weight is tightly centered within the main triangulation. The result is a quick-handling, well balanced sled that’s fun to throw around in a wide variety of conditions.
The lightweight Yamaha Mountain Ski delivers everything you want in a deep snow ski. Its wide footprint enhances flotation and actively lifts the sled’s nose up on plane in deep powder. Traction lugs on the top of the ski give you a sure foothold when the situation gets really gnarly. The wide and deep keel design delivers light steering effort, yet confident and predictable handling on hard pack and in fresh fluff.
