I sold my 2014 Polaris XP1000 and bought the Wolverine. The attached picture does not do justice to the size of the rocks to be crossed. When using the Polaris (last month) the clutch squalled over & over again when trying to go slow through it. The Wolverine just chugged along (with the rocks hitting bottom about same amount) The Polaris is great if you live someplace with desert or dunes, but is like pulling a wagon with a race horse, it will do it but not well. The Fit & Finish along with the clutching is miles ahead on the Yamaha. We did a 200 mile shakedown trip in the Snowy range last weekend. Used 8.5 gallons total (probably 100 miles low range 5 to 20 miles/hour & 100 in high running 25 to 35 with a little on road. At 8400 feet it would still hit limiter at 54 MPH but at 11,000 feet would only pull 50 mph (both on flat ground ) I will probably do clutch kit and go to 6-ply tires by spring. Very happy with the handling. I could run down pot hole filled road as fast a wanted and it just went straight and no big jolt. Very happy with that.
One of best thing I like is that you get maybe 20% of the mud inside that the RZR got (I have the fender extensions). On the RZR if in water or mud and turned the wheel, it filled the cabin even with full windshield. The Wolverine got a lot on the sides (& the Door Latches ) but did very good job of keeping the mess out of the cab (have folding windshield & rear rollup).
As others have said, it goes places in 2-wheel drive that the RZR needed 4-wheel. Obviously it has less power, but where I ride (Mountains or by Drumming Wisconsin Trails) 30 MPH is all you normally use. I do not regret my choice.
Another GREAT Polaris warranty issue. I had the RZR in Moab and it was 100 degrees outside. Even with full tank of fuel, the fuel pump would scream (would drown out motor noise at 30 mph) but still ran fine. Had never been below 1/2 tank since bought new. Took to dealer and they told me Polaris won't replace pump until it fails no matter how load it gets. You could just turn on the key & it would scream till pressure got high enough to shut off pump (did not even have to start motor). So you have to get stranded before they will talk about it. Sure glad I bought their high dollar extended warranty.
