2008 Yamaha Wolverine 350 - Wheel Play

Recommended Posts

Im new to your forum and i have searched to the best of my ability and cant find a thread for my problem so im gonna ask. As stated above i have an auto wolverine 350 that i bought for my girls and the left front wheel has play in it. I thought it was the bearings so i had the seals and bearings changed out and it still has play! What could be the problem? Tie rods? Axel or what? Im at a loss and its driving me crazy! Any help/ knowledge would be greatly appreciated

The steering is fine i can hit at least 30 and let go and its straight as an arrow. It when i put it on a jack and shake it back and forth it has play. How i noticed it was looking straight at it from the front and the left front wheel is bowed in so i jacked it up and shook the wheel and could tell. When the wheel is off the sprocket itself has a little play but not like it does when the wheel is on. If that makes sense?

I can tighten that center bolt as tight as i can get it then give her hell and when i jack it back up it has just as much play in it. I dont understand something?

the nut that threads on the spindle, should be a castle nut, the spindle should have a small hole all the way through it, and should have a cotter pin that doesnt allow it to back out ....

Yea roger it has the castle nut with the cotter pin. After complete install of of wheel i can ride two passes and the castle nut is starting to back off and the wheel has play. Do i need to have a bigger plate washer on it? I cant figure out how to post pic from a tablet or i would post pics for u. Thanks for helping!

i would try a thicker washer, but remember the cotter pin that needs to go through. i would suspect that part #6 is not seating properly or is worn and sloppy maybe.

Yea thanks for putting that up. That was the digram i was trying to put on here but my photo bucket isnt working. That is exactly how i have mine set up. Its all stock. Maybe the axel is bad but the guy who did the bearings didnt say it looked bad but idk!? Thanks for the info. Im gonna go ahead and take it apart again see what i can find. Ill keep this updated

      It will go into neutral, 1st, 2nd, and reverse but nothing after 2nd gear. The shifter moves freely going up completely nothing but when you shift down it works. I’m not sure if it’s tranny issue worth messing with or if I should just buy a new one.  Overall besides that the thing runs like new.

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Hi All,
      I did a total restoration on a 2003 Yamaha Raptor 80. Rebuilt the engine and tranny.. Started it up today and it runs great. Took it for a ride and the transmission worked perfectly. Adjusted the carb a little more and went for another ride. It ran awesome, pulled into the workshop shifted into neutral ( Neutral light came on) and shut off the bike. went to roll it and noticed she would not roll. Turned on the key and neutral light was on... After some troubleshooting I found that she is in first gear with the neutral light on and will not shift into neutral... It seems to up shift fine into 2nd and 3rd and then back down to 1st. I am hoping somebody can shed some light on what is happening... Thanks for any help...
