Last 3 rides were 93,102 and 98 miles. It took a little over 4 gallons to fill it.
Rides super smoothe. EPS makes driving it effortless. You can steer it with the gas pedal at high speeds in turns. Air filter easy to get to and easy to clean. Spin on oil filter. Seats comfy. Diff Lock. Plenty of power. Looks cool. Plenty of storage glove box, center console, cubby hole under the speedometer and its big. I looked at all brand side by sides for a whiiiile and went with this'n and glad I did. Also, the low and high range are nice. Suspension and the eps though are what i like the most. You dont get wore out from driving this thing.
I'm the same as of a lot of you on here with all your comments. Had a Teryx before and was no shortage of up grades done to it and I can say I'm very happy with my purchase. It was Kawie country around where I live, it was a great buggy that never let me down Japan. I have taken my brother and buddy for good rips in it and they both were amazed on the suspension, comfort and handling compared to their teryx's.
Easy to work on compared to a can am, way better quality too. Rides super nice, and comfortable. Yamaha reliability!
Good to hear all the positive things guys! Hopefully this information can help a prospective buyer in the future.
Suspension rides unbelievable, heat inside the cab is nonexistent, eps is great, has a more functional bed than a rzr
The seat and view. In my maverick I always felt like I was sitting in a hole and couldn't see out.
another thing that sold me on the yamaha instead of can am or polaris was that yamahas seem to hold the title for being dependable and durable. just the thought of having something that was not dependable kept me from buying a can am or polaris. now i don't have experience with can am or polaris just hundreds of hours reading about them haha so maybe that counts for something however i have had experience with yamaha some and i have seen a four wheeler yamaha makes absolutely abused and never had maintenance on it just had gas put in it and that thing ran and ran. i was a honda man but the pioneer 700 just looked boring to me so i couldn't do that but honda yes they got durability going for them. but for me at this point in time the wolverine was the best choice and i haven't thought twice about it. i entertained the teryx idea shortly but it felt like a tank and i drove one at the dealer and it just wasn't as smooth feeling to me so i had to get the ole wolverine and am glad i did. hope this isn't to far off the subject with my comparisons and all.
Yamahas Ultramatic is fantastic.
When I ride Hatfield McCoy, most of the locals have Rhinos and they seem to be really solid. My good friend has a Rhino with over 10,000 miles. All he had done is tires and we replaced a broken wheel bearing.
