Overview

Description

Powerful. Tough. Steadfast. The characteristics of a Wolverine are well known. Tackling the roughest terrain and adding to a day of fun and adventure is all in a day's work for the Wolverine. You have a Yamaha side by side that can go anywhere — in comfort — all day long. Try and provoke it, we dare you.



Power: The Wolverine's muscle comes from the 708 cc engine that features the industry's most durable CVT Ultramatic® fully automatic transmission, while the Mikuni fuel injection system provides choke-free starting and excellent fuel economy.



Design: Roomy 2-person seating with an automotive style layout makes for an ideal adventure partner and full length steel skid plates add to the Wolverines durability to ensure no obstacle holds you back.

Key Improvements For 2018
  • New, warning buzzer for engine over heat, parking brake & seat belts
  • New, front anti-sway bar
  • New, easier to use seat belt design
  • Door springs have been eliminated for easier entry & exit
Engine Features
  • 708cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve, single produces serious torque & horsepower: includes auto decompression system for fast, easy starts
  • Electric starting: includes auto decompression system for fast, easy starts
  • DOHC 4-valve cylinder head design: 2-intake (39 mm) & 2-exhaust (32 mm) valves provide maximum breathing efficiency; cylinder head design provides a compact combustion chamber; shim under bucket valve actuation for extended valve adjustment intervals
  • Aluminum cylinder body with cast iron liner: aluminum design reduces weight; cylinder can be over bored in the event of an issue (2 sizes of overbore)
  • Short skirt forged aluminum piston with Defric coating: fast throttle response; reduced reciprocating mass means less mechanical vibration; Defric coating reduces friction for improved power output
  • Ball bearing style crank crankshaft: fast engine response
  • Gear driven balancer shaft: reduces engine vibration for improved rider comfort
  • 44 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system with TPS & ISC: TPS (throttle position sensor) is used to more precisely calculate the fuel injection quantity for optimum power & excellent throttle response at all rpms; ISC (Idle speed control) helps ensure a steady idle even during warm up; other fuel injection benefits include; choke-free starting, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • High capacity air box with "no tools required" washable foam air filter: no tools are required to access the washable foam filter; high mounted intake duct helps prevent water ingestion; no tools required air box drain
  • Yamaha's industry leading "Ultramatic" CVT (fully automatic) transmission with reverse & downhill engine braking: dual range, high - low transmission with reverse. Low range offers more ?grunt? for towing or hauling heavy loads or when tackling technical terrain. CVT automatically selects the optimum transmission ratio, meaning you are always in the right "gear"; Ultramatic design offers downhill engine braking for confidence inspiring control; engine braking reduces brake wear & servicing, plus increases rider confidence & security; Ultramatic design features a special centrifugal clutch which keeps constant tension on the V-belt to reduce belt wear since the belt does not slip as the clutches engage; high mounted belt cooling ducts help prevent water ingestion; V-belt housing has a "no tools required" drain plug; automotive style, gated, 4-postion shifter (high, low, neutral & reverse); automotive style parking brake lever
  • Super convenient, servo motor controlled, On Command 4WD drive system: On Command drive system features 3 modes: 2wd, 4wd limited slip & 4wd differential lock; On Command drive system lets you select the best mode for the conditions... not the machine; 4wd differential lock provides equal power to all 4 wheels for maximum traction and "bite"
  • Straight rear drive shaft: straight design rear driveshaft layout eliminates U-joints for reduced friction, reduced noise & reduced vibration; front & rear CV drive shafts feature heavy duty rubber boots to protect the CV joints for extended service life & durability
  • High capacity cooling system with electric cooling fan: maintains consistent engine temperatures for optimum performance; rad is positioned high in the frame for protection; over heat warning buzzer
  • Wet sump lubrication system with air-cooled oil cooler: air-cooled oil cooler with protective screen helps maintain consistent oil & engine temperatures for optimum performance & extended engine life; spin-on type oil filter
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI): produces a strong spark for fast starts; precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • Marine grade connectors on key electrical components: spark arrestor prevents stray sparks from exiting the exhaust; stainless steel design helps prevent rusting, steel muffler is painted
  • Stainless steel exhaust header pipe & painted steel muffler with cleanable spark arrestor: spark arrestor prevents stray sparks from exiting the exhaust; stainless steel design helps prevent rusting, steel muffler is painted
  • Air Injection System (AIS) injects fresh air into exhaust port to fully burn any unburnt fuel, reducing exhaust emissions.
Chassis Features
  • Rugged box section design steel frame: compact design provides nimble, responsive handling & excellent terrain-ability; special lower frame flares help protect rear wheels in tight conditions
  • Full length steel under frame skid plates & steel axle skid plates: underside of unit is fully protected by rugged steel skid plates; oil drain holes for both engine & rear differential for easy oil changes; skid plate enhances terrain ability by allowing unit to slide more easily over obstacles
  • ROPS roll over protection structure (ROPS US OSHA/ISO3471): 5-way spring pre-load adjustable, long stroke, KYB shocks with dual rate springs; 246 mm (9.7") of front wheel travel; anti-sway bar controls / limits body roll for added confidence & comfort
