    What to do???

    So I finally want to trade the Rhino in and went and looked at a 2016 Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE yesterday. I took it for a short ride and while I do like it, I wasn't crazy impressed with the power. I told the salesman that my Rhino has more power and could go faster and he gave me that look of disbelief. Until I told him about the JBS clutch and Dynatek. All in all, he's giving me $5900 for my buggy with a difference due of $6600. And I get a winch thrown in. And he doesn't want any of my LED's or my 5 point harnesses. I think I have myself talked into it considering the next big upgrades for the rhino would be shocks and power steering. That alone is half the difference in price of trading mine in on the wolvy.

    But my Rhino sure is clean.........







    Even got the aluminum all cleaned up..

    I heard about that yesterday. Think of the money I'd save with this one though.

    you're already saying it doesn't have enough power for you, what else might you find that you want to improve that could cost money
    you'll get the same deal now on a Wolvy as you will in a month

    I'd tend to agree. I'm holding my breath for September as well. IF they drop something with more ass in the Wolverine I may be in the doghouse for a bit.

    are we having this discussion on facebook also?

    more likely a parallel 2 or 3 cylinder, Yamaha has a bunch of those


    IF it is even a multi-cylinder.............

    Man I hope so.....the FZ-07 has an inline twin (689cc) that puts out about 65HP......which is right where I feel the Wolverine should be, would be a PERFECT mate to it. That would put it up with the Wildcat and Rzr 900 (close)in terms of power to weight. Man....what a kick in the seat THAT would be.

    That would be sweet! The only thing that stinks is that would bring my price tag up to around 10K plus my buggy. I'm thinking a new model year Wolverine is going to be around 15-16K, wouldn't you? 2017 R-Specs are going for mid $14k now.

    Copy that Brother, $14-$16 is a safe bet depending on model/options. I may keep my eyes open for a smashed up FZ-07 now hahahaha. I wonder how tough it would be to squeeze that motor in there.
