I've had my 2002 Yamaha Viper 700 for about a week and a half now, and I've been hitting some jumps with it. My friend said I was about four feet in the air. I was just wondering... Is this going to damage my sled at all? I don't really land that hard... I was just wondering if it's going to screw it up. Are there any modifications I should make?

Over time it will cause mis-alignment of the clutches, lowering the performance of your sled. Keep your clutches tuned and keep your suspension in good shape, and it should be fine, until it breaks in half anyways.

Hmm. Will it really break in half?

Being that its a Yamaha, probably not, but you never know. Depends on how hard you beat on it. I've seen sleds with the tunnel rivets ripping out of the bulkhead, granted they were all A/C sleds(I'm not bashing, thats just the way it is), and Yamaha's are built much stronger so I dont think you will have a problem. If your body can handle it, the sled more than likely can handle it too. Unlike your body though, your sled cant heal, so any damage done will continue to get worse. If you plan on jumping a lot, just keep up on the maintenance, it should be fine, until it breaks in half anyways :D .
