    2019 Yamaha wolverine

    My new machine has a throttle that is so ultra sensitive I cannot get a smooth ride from it. The slightest movement on or off it either surges or brakes and starts to buck especially down a rough grade, you can feel it load the transmission and release like someone braking your car when they apply and release the brake. Something is going to break. I really DISLIKE this machine and presently would not recommend it. It’s hard to get in and out, the ride is rough, just not impressed. I have over 15000 miles on machines, I’m not beginner.

    My question would be, if you're not a beginner as you say, and have much experience, how do you end up with a machine that you dislike so much? You never drove it, or sat in it before buying it? Also, if it's new, there is a certain break in period, as things are new and very tight. They all loosen up and smooth out with a few miles on them.

    Throttle Maxx helped me out quite a bit with the bucking. Try disconnecting the front sway bar, this improves ride quality a lot. If you don't do high speed riding you can disconnect the rear sway bar too. Most of my trail riding is below 20 mph and with both sway bars disconnected the ride is very plush. Tire pressure also makes a big difference, I run 10 psi front and rear.

    You posted this thread in the older Gen 1 section. There is a different section for the newer X2 and X4 machines, just an FYI

    How many miles have you put on your 2019? Sounds like a dealer should look at it.

    Have the dealer check it over. Maybe they didn't check it and something is out of adjustment. If you've never drive an ATV or SxS before its a different experience. Test a different machine at the dealer for comparison as well. They all have at least two on show/demo, 2 & 4 seater.

    Do you have an X2 or X4? Everything about my X4 is super smooth. Maybe it needs to go back.

    My understanding is you do not have a throttle pedal, it is a rheostat switch. It is a drive by wire computer type thing. The dealer should give this some attention. I do know that the auto industry is now having aftermarket opportunities with electronic piggy-back controllers of the accelerator, and wonder if someone will be getting into the UTV market for such issues, but would guess that only dealer can deal with this now.

    Yes, that's right I think I remember reading that about the X2/X4's. I kinda gave him shit in the other thread, because I think the 708 is a 'real' throttle pedal and I forgot they changed that for the X2/X4s.

    With all the computer stuff, it's certainly worth checking out. Also, if you could try ANOTHER X2, and see if it behaves the same or not... I'm sure you'd be able to tell very quickly.

    Weller ECU flash actually modifies the throttle output for a little smoother operation.

    Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, but sounds like a troll post. Everything new takes some getting used to. I don't think I've ever purchased anything new and felt comfortable with it right away. Time will tell.
