Re: Interested in buying a yamaha wolverine!!
I ride a 2003 Wolverine and LOVE IT!
Great gas mileage...I can ride most of the day non-stop without worrying about gas. In fact, I went out with a buddy on his Honda 300EX and when he had to switch to reserve I had only used half a tank.
Starts great in cold...mind you I'm only talking about down to about freezing. I've not had to start it in temps lower than that.
I'm not sure about the 60 mph piece. I think I've had mine upto approx. 50 and that's plenty for me. I know I'm not topping out though. It still has room to go if it just had another gear...6 like in the Warrior.
It is a little rough of a ride on trails...though I feel the trail better and have more control I think. The bike handles great, but you're not going to get much tail action around corners because of the 4-wheel drive aspect. I think the bike is quite nimble and I enjoy the ride. It is excellent in the mud...I think. I've yet to get stuck...though I know I will. I've not come across any terrain it had trouble with where I ride...sand, loose dirt/gravel, mud, water, railroad tracks, power for climbing, etc.
I'd recommend it hands down to anyone that wants a decent, moderately powerful machine. I particularly like it because it is fairly light, nimble control, size is good for fairly tight navigation and plenty of power...and I'm 6' 2" and 210 lbs.
Like I said at the beginning...I LOVE IT!
