Buying a new Wolverine. Good points and bad points

Buying a new Wolverine. Is it a good all around trail-riding quad. Can you give me the good points and the bad points? Is their a better 4+4 quad for the money that is not any heavier. Thanks Fred

Re: Buying a new Wolverine. Good points and bad points

I really like the wolverine. My friend had a 98, but recently sold it and bought a new grizz. It has a nice feathery light feeling to it for a 4x4. Its the only one I'd feel comfertable doing large jumps on for that matter. I thought the wolverine was actualy more fun to ride then the grizz. Sure the grizz is faster. But it is also heavier ,and larger, and feels like a tank compared to the wolverine. I'd rather do aggresive trail riding on the wolverine as well. Yamaha needs to keep the current wolverine chassis, and an independent rear suspension option olong with a liquid cooled motor. I feel this is the perfect sized (play) 4x4. Another atv that looks like it will be a fun play machine is the bombardier outlander 400. If I was getting a new 4x4 I'd probrably pick up one of those. If your already looking into upgrading and improving the wolverine, There is a list of mods I did to my warrior. The post is top speed in the atv performance section. It has the same topend as your wolverine, and would work on your quad as well.

Re: Buying a new Wolverine. Good points and bad points

I bought a 2003 Wolverine about 3 months ago and ride it about every two weeks...on the weekends with a group of other riders in my neighborhood. I love the Wolverine! It goes wherever I point it. It's light and nimble and easily makes it through some of the more narrow trails we ride on that run through some trees (places a larger utility 4x4 would never be able to go because of sheer size issues). It's great in the mud, sand, tree roots, ravines, railroad tracks (we have to cross them everytime we ride in order to get to our trails) as well as rocks, gravel, etc. It's a great all around machine...suspension akin to a sport and 4x4 action of a utility. I'd definately buy another!

The only thing I don't like about it is the lack of a 6th gear like the Warrior has. This is a great little engine and another gear would help me keep better pace with my buddy that's got a Honda 300 EX. And by the way, we went riding today and that little bullet of a 300 EX got stuck in the mud twice...I just went around it, through the 2 feet deep mud, and pulled him out. That's one of the real great aspects of the's nice and light as well.
