I thought the srx name didn't appear till late 90's? And 105hp out of a 440 in '76 does seem a bit stretched.

Ride Hard...complain later

im not sure what year they started bu i do know there was a 77 SRX 440. And they were the sled to beat back in the day. I thought i read somwhere that they had about 90 hp.

Heres a 76 I found on e-bay, these sleds were pretty fast for the time.

i highly doubt a 105hp.


I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter-

"""" 1976 introducerade Yamaha SRX-serien, R för Racing (tävling) och X för eXperimental (experimentell). Yamaha SRX kom i två utföranden, SRX 340 som kom att bli en parentes inom SRX-serien och den legendariska SRX 440. Yamaha SRX var den första serietillverkade Yamaha snöskotern som var vätskekyld. De första SRX 440 modellerna hade 100-105 hk. """""

Actually it was the 77 that had the 105 hp, and the srx first came out in 74 as an oval drag sled. The 78-79 had 90-95 hp, while in the 80-81 years had 85-90 hp. I own a 79 that has been ported and polished and has the high compression heads on it, and its pushin 97-98 hp and can keep up with all the late model 600's. So for those of you who didn't know about the early srx's, there ya go!
