2010 Yamaha 450 Wolverine??

Recommended Posts

I have a 450 Wolverine with 500 miles on it. My question is are these known to not have a lot of pick up? It just doesn't seem like its fast out of the hole or top end. It has plenty of low end torque. I thought maybe the CVT belt might be worn....but it only has 500 miles on it.

Those always seems to me like a utility quad dressed in sport quad plastics. It's not going to be a rocket ship, but should be able to get up there in speed as most utility 400 and 450 quads I used to own a Yamaha Kodiak 450 and it was fine and had good low end but wasn't a speedster of the starting line. Now if it's slipping, that's another thing. Do you have it in 4WD or 2WD, if I recall there is a selector.

Measure the  belt width and compare  it to  a  new belt to  know  how  much wear  is on it .. 500 miles  of  hard  pull  will wear it  more  than  easy riding. The weight  it is  carrying  also  affects   its acceleration  and top  speed.  My  260  pound  butt on a  buddies  quad  with the  CVT transmission definitely  is  slower  than  it is  with his  150   pounds.

I didn’t have it in 4wd. I’m just wondering if it’s me or something wrong? It runs great just think it would have more pick up. I’m not comparing it to my 700 king quad but they are night and day different. It doesn’t seem like it wants to spool up quick.

      It’s kind of ATV related question as I need new trailer tires to tow my 4 wheeler. 
      Does anybody have any experience with loadstar 12” trailer tires ? 
      There is not to many choices for trailer tires here in Ontario and I was wandering if somebody can recommend me something.

      Well its finally happened, its time to replace the belt on my 2011 Polaris Sportsman 500 H.O.   Is there anything specific i need to know before getting into it? Is there one brand of belt i should get over another?   I'm still on my first Polaris and plan to keep it at least another 8 years.

      Suspension Question? Shocks for 250X
      I bought the wife a 2019 honda 250X,it does not have adjustable shocks,I'm thinking of maybe getting one  as well,for her she does not notice it as much as I  do but the ride is not as good as my 1991 250X with adjustable shocks.
      So I'm looking at maybe getting new shocks if I get one for myself,I find these.

      Exploiting a loop hole in the law, turn 4 wheeler into rev trike
      for a long while I have been trying to get a real 4 wheeler street legal.
      the problem is with the state laws, if it has 4 wheels, its a car and has mega more rules.
      If it only has 3 wheels, its a trike and can be made from cobbled junk parts held together with duct tape and they will plate it
      I wonder if anyone would have insight on changing a 4 wheeler over to a single rear wheel?
      [ I can't afford some $40-60,000 canam or super bike modded into a car, rev trike kit ]
      I want something I can truly ride year round on and off road. Ive rode enough old Honda 3 wheelers that I know I do not want a traditional motorcycle trike. So the single wheel has to go out back.
