There is a grease fitting on the U-Joint in front of the front drive shaft bearing. Automotive standards on electrical wiring, brake lines, and oil and coolant hose routing and protection where needed. It took a few days to reroute and add protection to all three Polaris models I had. Kawasaki and Honda also have a very good build quality. The Wolverine is more like buying a car, just add fuel and drive it.

Nice to hear Bob! I had to re-route my winch wiring but that was no fault of Yamaha but the careless mechanic in the service department.. Looking forward to hearing more about how you rate the Wolverine.

that's what I noticed, too. the overall machine is tighter toleranced with better quality parts than my Polaris.

Awesome. Now if I could just get you to come to central PA and put it in for me��. Never tore into a cvt and don't think I would if I didn't have someone right beside me who was knowledgeable

I know, we should have done a video when we installed it. Getting to the cvt takes longer than putting the new sheave in it. The vent tube and frame support are directly beside the cvt. I have some pics at home if I can remember to post them.

Timmi, sounds like a road trip! Bring your Wolverine and make it a weekend! And then he can do a video!

It's really not all that much work. I am just used to my 570 where everything is out in the open. The engine in the Wolvy is right at the back of the cab with cvt tubes and a vertical frame support blocking access to the cvt. We even had to remove the seat belt bracket. The frame is just wide enough to get the engine into.

Thanks Timmi! Is that the CVT intake just below the seat back frame? If so, looks like your but would have to be wet before the CVT sucked water?
