More power than you’ll ever be able to use – but smooth, confidence-inspiring and ride-able enough that you could quite realistically try. The 2017 FE 501’s brand-new 1.7 kg lighter engine is the most powerful in the Husqvarna enduro line-up. Class leading electronics to adjust the 510.4 cc power plant’s delivery while the single overhead camshaft (SOHC) cylinder-head is designed for maximum performance with minimum weight. A new camshaft actuates four lightweight valves, while more stream-lined chain guides increase efficiency and performance. The new compact crankshaft increases inertia without increasing weight, while the new big-end bearing design increases reliability and durability, for long service intervals of 135 hours.

Tool-less air filter access
The new airbox is designed with precisely positioned inlet ducts aimed at preventing air deformation and ensuring maximum airflow and filter protection. The air filter is easily accessed, without tools, by removing the left side panel. Easy maintenance is guaranteed by the Twin Air filter and filter cage design that features a simple fail proof mounting system for safe and accurate filter installation.
Brembo brakes
Class-leading Brembo callipers and controls with high quality GSK discs deliver superior stopping power instilling confidence in all situations. For MY17, the rear brake calliper uses a smaller piston diameter 24mm instead of 26mm, coupled with a 10mm longer rear brake lever the system delivers improved modulation and feeling.
Electric start
Standard electric start ensures effortless and reliable starting that is especially useful in difficult terrain. The system is now coupled with a new Li-Ion battery saving 1 kg over the previous model.

Following a very successful 2016 season, C3 POWERSPORTS is now launching the new 2017 YETI SNOWMX enhanced to push your riding experience to higher level. The multiple features and upgrades added to our conversion kits are the result of your most valuable feedback and suggestions. These enhancements includes titanium drive shaft, suspension cross shafts and upper rear shaft which increases enormously the YETI reliability. For your peace of mind we upgraded our deflector with a stronger and thicker material improving the impermeability and durability of the YETI’s heart…the SYNCRODRIVE. We also installed a wider 28mm belt increasing strength by 35%. New Raptor coil over shocks combined with the optional RRS; allowing 22″ of suspension travel was chosen for maximizing your ridding comfort. For 2017 we are introducing MAXTRAX II, improved design in order to again reduce weight while ensuring great flotation and snow displacement. The YETI aesthetics goes one more notch with matching inlaid graphics under clear coat, over our new carbon chassis. Make 2017 winter to remember, ride YETI SNOWMX!
