In the past yes but Totally wrong on The 2020 Yeti was redesigned and the most solid kit out there.not a weak part on them now. New steel front arm, Floating jackshaft keeps alignment perfect always,wide belt system, Anti slip drivers allow track to run loose,all new enclosed brake system, all new tunnel,totally solid kit, If there was a weak link I would be the first to acknowledge it. If ewe want to ride powder /steeps and climb Yeti is the best kit, If ewe want to get on a hillside and do wheelies and tricks then the Riot is the best kit.If you ride a lot the Yeti has been a maintenance problem child, Riot solid /works in western snow with adjustments, CMX ?? who knows, biggest difference I see between Yeti and TS is which track will work for you, and your preference of blowing money ........on kits or parts, or blowing your money on riding.
This^^The riot is not just for wheelies and tricks. It is light on the front even if you set it for climbing mode. Easy to adjust either way you like it. If you have something that can out climb a riot it either has more track, less weight or more hp. We all know a yeti 129 has more track and less weight so there it is. But keep in mind getting to the top first usually means you missed out on some of the fun. There may be very rare occasions in some terrain where one bike can make it and another can't buy I haven't seen that yet. There is always a way.
