Standard Features

535 cc, Two-Stroke Axial Fan-Cooled Engine
 This proven design has maintained the highest reputation for bulletproof reliability in its class. Now featuring a higher output magneto, new ignition and carburetion, the 540 is even more efficient and guaranteed to get you going every time, with a turn of the key or a pull on the standard back-up recoil pack.  
Three-Speed Transmission
 The Hi/Lo transmission with reverse allows for variety. Low range allows for pulling of heavy loads while a shift of the manual actuated lever puts you in high range which is ideal for faster cruising.  
High Output 400-watt ACM, Alternator Assembly
 Provides ample power for the new digital CDI ignition along with the carb heaters, twin bulb headlight, hand-warmers and accessories.  
Mikuni TM 33 Flat Slide Carburetor
 Provides excellent throttle response with lower emissions and improves fuel efficiency by 25 percent.  
Electric Carb Heaters
 The use of the dual heating elements result in more stable idle speeds at warm up (not having to flip the choke multiple times to prevent stalling) and less plug fouling. Additionally carb icing is reduced for consistent performance in extreme cold and snowy conditions.  
44-liter Fuel Tank
 The VK 540 has a large fuel tank. When combined with the additional efficiency of the evolved engine, this new work-horse can go nearly double the distance on a full tank of fuel than its predecessors.  
Camoplast® 1.5 Cobra™ WT Track
 The primary purpose of the 20 x 154 x 1.5-inch Cobra track is to fully maximize all available snow with confidence-inspiring deep snow flotation and powerful pulling force. The 1.5-inch lug is perfect for low-speed or high-load situations that utility sleds often function in. The 154 x 20 x 1.5 Cobra track adds additional deep snow capability to the legendary VK.  
Dual-Bulb Headlight
 As part of the modern styling project, the VK540 now features a dual-bulb headlight. The new headlight throws more light on the trail than the previous single-bulb design, and is fully integrated in the overall styling cues.  
Reduced Snow Accumulation
 The new tunnel design includes large snow evacuation holes on running boards with traction. The tunnel is built out of lightweight, high-tensile steel to keep the VK540's legendary rugged durability in the toughest conditions.  
Utility Inspired Styling
 A fresh look for the legendary proven VK540 is both modern and tough. Extensive development went into a new shroud and duct work to minimize engine bay snow ingestion. This is especially important in extreme cold markets where the fine snow crystals will penetrate and create ice buildup.  
LED Taillight
 The high-intensity LED taillight / brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design, and delivers a significantly longer lifespan.  
Workforce Mirrors
 Functional mirrors tout a large viewing area, making it easier to see what lies behind. The mirrors are mounted on the interior side of the protective windshield, shielding them from potential damage.  
Reliable Front TSS Suspension
 Yamaha wrote the book on TSS. With no suspension arms and links dragging in the snow, TSS provides the ultimate in rugged durability.  
Wide Plastic Skis
 Wide mountain style UHMW plastic skis add great flotation to the front end along with predictable steering and excellent resistance to impact damage and wet sticky snow.  
Twin Shock Torsion Spring Rear Suspension
 The new VK uses the proven skid frame from Yamaha's VK Professional. This long travel design brings new comfort to the VK540 along with good transfer and towing capabilities. The addition of flip-up rear rails help take the bite out of the terrain and makes reversing in deep snow a cinch.  
Elevated Seat
 The seat on the VK540 is 60 mm taller than the previous VK, which elevates the rider and delivers a comfortable posture for long days in the saddle and easier transition to standing. New high density foam also improves ride comfort.  
Protective Windshield
 A wide, tall, wrap-around style windshield delivers greater protection from the elements as well as unsuspecting tree branches and limbs. The windshield has been wind tunnel tested to reduce unwanted negative swirl and deliver a greater "pocket" of comfort for both driver and passenger.  
Standard Electric Start
 Seamless and easy to use electric start delivers instant and hassle-free starts, no matter the weather, while manual recoil pull start offers peace of mind.  
Expansive Under-Seat Storage
 With a hinged, flip-up seat, the VK exudes its work ethic at every turn. The large under-seat storage touts an integrated tool kit and room for much more. The seat's hinge pins are easy to pull for quick seat removal to speed loading and unloading.  
Standard Tow Hitch
 In addition to a host of on-board creature comforts and storage, a standard factory rear mounted tow hitch is at the ready for additional gear or occasional light-duty work.
