1996 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4 Struts and Shocks

Recommended Posts

Hello I’m new here and was wondering is anyone knew of good replacement part numbers for front struts and rear shocks for this atv? I think I’ve found a new rear shock, that looks like the original but there is no dimensions or anything and was wondering if there are any afterMarket new front struts available. I know it’s a long shot but any help would be appreciated.

I’ve sort of done that for the struts by looking them up on parts diagrams not the actual stamped part number on the strut.  All I can find are used on eBay not sure they’d be much better than mine.  I will do that. Thanks for the advice

Alright guys. I need some help with this rear shock. The one I thought would work is two inches too long.  I’ve removed the old shock. It’s 360 mm eye to eye or 14-1/8”, set on the highest setting. The eyelets are 12mm or .459” the spring which may nor be a big deal is .366” sorry didn’t get a metric measurement. And the body of the shock is 1.5” and some change. The width of the top eyelet is 40mm and the bottom is 45 mm. The biggest problem I’m having is finding that length matched with a 12mm eyelet.  I could get  one with 10 mm eyelets but then I’d have slop in the anchor points in the quad using 10mm bolts.

Update on the front struts from Canada. They work great but are 7/8” longer than what was on there. The tires lean out slightly at the top but it’s fine. Had to bend the bottom edge for more clearance from the cv axle.

      What's the best kids atv out there? I've seen everything from the ones released by the major manufacturers to all those knock offs. Kawasaki has a KFX 50 that is pretty nice for under $1800...

      Anyone purchase or check out Rockymtnatv lately? Well I was just browsing over there and they have a pretty cool section called Ten Dollars Or Less. Some interesting things to check out if you are in the market.

      having an issue with the unit when running under a load up a hill or in high gear, seems like the belt is slipping, there is a clapping sound coming from the primary clutch like it releases and snaps back in. i don't think I should have a noise like that. this is a friends unit and he has already replaced the primary twice with the same result.
      not sure where to look next

      The stock driver seat cushion is separated at a seam. I took the seat apart and found that the material has torn and cannot be re-stiched. I'm trying to find a replacement seat. Any suggestions? Hoping for a used seat but couldn't find one on Ebay.

      I cant seem to find what this part is called. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I must be misinterpereting the parts catalog or something? I dont see it in the rear axle section. I think it may be in the rear brake assembly section? click link to view picture.
