I noticed that my glove box lid will pop open randomly while riding hard, and the latch doesn't stay shut well at all. Anyone else having the same problem or know of a fix?
Good points! Can't figure why they did that either. Also the middle console cover should have been made a millimeter or two thicker. Hopefully Yamaha will look at the rants and raves when designing the Wolverine 2.0. It would just make a great machine better.I've been following this forum for quite some time, and decided that this topic was the perfect reason to join. I HATE the glove box in the Wolverine! Mine pops open, as well, with very little effort and this is simply unacceptable. If anyone from the Yamaha design team follows this forum, this should be the subject of a recall. It's not just annoying, it's a safety issue. Objects can easily fly out of the glove box and strike the passenger, let alone distract the driver when his or her attention should be on the road.
While we're on the topic of the glove box, I'm finding it really hard to picture in my mind the precise moment when a bunch of rational people sat around a board room and decided it was a good idea to leave off a 15 cent rubber gasket to seal the box. Surely, someone would have said, "But won't water get in?", to which someone replied, "Well, let's just drill a hole in the box; you know, right where the front tire splashes into the wheel well." Like I said, I just can't picture it - but it happened! And don't get me started on the holes in the storage bins in the console and space in the dash above the cup holders.
Also (and finally), on the subject of the glove box: if you look at it from the wheel well side, under the dash, you can see that there was enough space to easily make the inside dimensions at least 2 inches larger in every direction! It just seems a little lazy to me, that's all.
There, my rant is over! I feel better now that I got that off my chest.
