    love to ride my Wolverine 450 and\or my Z400 and go wheeling in my Jeep.

    Whoa..!!! Say what..? "if its elec start and has pull start take elec off and it should help." what's that gonna do for making it faster\more power..? Less weight..? That's just a BAD idea if that's what you meant..?

    Hi.. Just my .02 worth.. To get more power out of anything is ALWAYS done with\by the motor.. You don't hear of anyone changing or modifying their gears do you..? I hope not.. so having an automatic trans isn't gonna make or get you any more power. ps. a 350 powered aint a real powerful machine to start with.. I'm sure there are a few HP mods or parts for them.. but I'd never mess with the tranny, auto or maunal.
  5. Call the local Yammie Dealer. Sounds like the hose got blown off when you pressure washed it.

    Questions for you..? You say it's "started going slower revving out quicker".. It sounds like either the engine isn't running well or it's in the clutch\transmission..? Does it start easily..? If it idles good.. what happens when your in park and you rev it up..? Does it rev slow or fast\normal..? When does it seem to have this problem.. in gear and iding or in neutral\park..?

    I've got a Wolverine myself and have had the same problem. I am guessing it's not a cold weather related issue. It sounds like your carb is plugged up a bit. Get it started and make sure it's in neutral or in park.. then with the handle end of a screwdriver.. tap with a medium pressure on the bowl of the carb.. and then try gassing on it.. give it some RPM's.. up and down as your tapping in it. If it clears up.. Your gonna need to pull the carb or at least the bowl and clean it out if tapping on it solves your problem. It did for mine. Mine still acts up sometimes.. It doesn't like the whoops..! Hope this helps..
  9. I had no idea when I bought this '06 Yamaha Wolverine that it was much more than just a quad.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6uNcjNfrBA
  10. Yup.. sure is. it's a bit heavy (600lbs.) but incredible machine.
  11. Nope.. not even close..! There was some deep soft sand at the bottom of the ledge and being at such a steep angle the wheels turned on me.. and the little bit of momentum kept the backend going up.. If I had of gassed it (4x4) the front end would have pulled me out of it. This time it was all good. Very slow-motion roll.. It was actually fun. ps. NO brakes were used in this short clip.
  12. Went riding on the dunes in N. Bend, OR. this past weekend and came home with some more awesome memories.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHQySUAr-Rk
  13. Nice toy.. I had a LTZ250.. was fun for putting around on.. but traded it in for my '06 Yamaha Wolverine 450 4x4 It needed servicing so I turned it over.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHQySUAr-Rk
  14. Hey Flynn... did you ever purchase a camera..? what did you buy.. if so..? -Bruce
