    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.
    i had a rhino for 7 years and ran the crap out of that thing,all I ever did was change the oil. Hopefully the wolverine will be just as good

    i like where the battery is at easy easy access. All the drain plugs for differential fluid and engine oil is the same size and easily accessible..... and the stock full skid plate is where its at.

    I LOVE THIS MACHINE!! I was very surprised at what it can go through. It has plenty of power, Never felt sluggish. I love that in 2 wheel drive the rear end likes to slide and in 4 wheel drive you have total control with hardly any slipping. Comfortable seats, virtually no cab heat, extreme visibility, and effortless steering with the EPS. My only complaint is that the rear grab bar and rear storage box got very hot from the exhaust. I mean hardly can touch hot. You could put your lunch in the storage box on a cold winter day and it would be hot and ready after a ride, or if you have more than an hour to the deer feeder. I hope your deer like popcorn lol. Anyone else noticed the same thing?

    maybe some kind of bed mat would help with that.

    I too found that the rear grab bar and rear storage box got very hot.........to the point where it cooked a container of worms I had in their, as I was going fishing. I think a heat shield would be very beneficial!!

    Thanks for the feed back. There is a tiny heat shield under the bed, but it apparently sucks. . A pad might help inside the box but probably need to custom fit. I don't see a solution for the grab bar getting hot.

    Bumping to top...I thought since many of us have had more seat time now, we could revise our likes/dislikes? I am reviving both threads. maybe the mods can make them stickies so that new comers can have good info right at the top?

    The Wolverine is my first side by side after riding lots of razors I knew the razor wasn't for me .this wolverine is like riding a Cadillac in the woods I can ride 70 80 90 miles and get out and feel great. The best thing is it's great for hauling razors out of the woods and not vice versa. I would recommend the Wolverine to anybody that's looking for a side by side I don't need a thousand CC's in the woods to go 25 miles an hour. I rode 80 miles not long ago took less than 5 gallon of gas. I find the 60 inch wheelbase great for straddling the ruts on West Virginia trails while the 50" bikes are way off camber on some trails my Wolverine feels as solid as a rock. If something happened to my Wolverine I would buy another one tomorrow. As Forrest Gump says that's all I have to say about that.

    All the previous plus the fact that I still have full control of when I engage 4wd and the locker.

    ive never owned a Yamaha before this one. if mine got stole or totaled out or whatever id go down to the Yamaha place and buy another one just like it. this thing has what I need to work on deer lease/ hunt with/ play on. I wouldn't want a different machine for the stuff I do. I was a Honda man still like there stuff but I like the wolverine over the pioneer. smoother riding, more nimble, better looking, power steering, waaayyy more storage in the cab, a bit more power, faster. that's all I can think of its a good bike and im totally satisfied with the purchase of it as it is a rather large purchase to me.
