Hi Everyone! I'm in the process of selling my suburban house in San Diego and looking forward to moving out into the countryside of San Diego County. My 4-wheel offroading days go all the way back to the late seventies with the fun but brutal (balloon rear tires and no suspension in the back) yellow Honda Odyssies. Things have advanced considerably since those old things, and am looking forward to owning a new Yamaha Wolverine Spec-R.

I've been following Can Ams on their forums for a while now. I love their features and layout, but not their prices. Also some owners are disintegrating belts in less than fifty miles. From what I've been reading, Yamaha doesn't have that problem. They seem to be well built, and cost much less than the Can Ams.

I was able to spend a day with the mechanics at my dealership last Friday adding accessories and prepping my Wolverine for delivery on Saturday morning. One unsolicited comment from their primary technician was " I'm not sure why everyone is so concerned about changing a belt on the trail, in the years I've been here I've never had to change one and don't know of a owner who has changed one either" I was surprised because I've gone 3-4 years on a snowmobile belt but have no experience with ATV's.

Have you heard about the 18 month warranty extension for purchase of 1,000 in Accessories? Or purchase the YES warranty? A no deductible warranty and transferable if you sell your vehicle! With both offers you can get up to 5 years of warranty for about $340-440.

The Yamaha Ultramatic cvt is known as the most reliable and trouble free in the industry. The wet clutch keeps the belt engaged at all times so there is little wear on it.

Thanks for the warm reception guys. Yeah, I're been reading about Yamaha's belt tensioner and lack of shredded belts by owners. The guys on the Mavericks forum are advising newbies to take off hard from a start then back of on the throttle to help save the belts. It's my belief that these buggies are too heavy to be running belt drives, but Yamaha seems to have them dialed in the best so far. It would be nice if others would incorporate an automotive-style automatic like Honda has done. Time will tell. Now I'm off to the "General Discussions" thread to stay updated. Thanks again.
