Thanks, I had a BLAST. The Warrior only had 3 issues, 2 which I did not expect:

1. Carbs are dirty/out of tune. This I knew. It would shut off while coming from a higher RPM to idle, almost like it was getting no fuel. This went hand in hand with an engine that would die if I went WOT from idle. First half of the day it did this a few times. Second half of the day it didn't do this until I would be nose down a steep incline at idle, and only happened twice. I also should not when this first happened, Choke would be the only way it started, and choke would have it idle high as it should. The second half of the day it actually acted RICH, in the choke was not needed, and choke would actually kill the engine. I started it yesterday cold and it did not like choke after 10-15 seconds. I'm thinking dirt finally got through the jets?


2. Axle carrier bolt threads stripped. This I did not know I had done, but when I adjusted the chain last week in prep for this ride, I overtightened the bottom carrier bolt, and stripped bolt the bolt and the nut threads. It held up for 3-4 hours, but finally let go a little after lunch. I was able to run to a hardware store near by and get some washers and a new nut, and tighten down on some healthy threads and it got me through the day. I will need to find a permanent solution. I also added locking split washers to the top carrier bolt because that kept coming loose on it's own, maybe because of the bad bottom one. Either way, it stayed solid for 3 more hours after.

3. I blew the rear brake line/seal somewhere. Around the same time the rear carrier bolt went, I lost my rear brakes. Fluid completely missing, and it leaked somewhere around the lid/reservoir for the rear brake fluid. You never realize how much you need the rear brake for hills until you don;t have it


I did not take many pictures throughout the day, I was busy riding or fixing the Warrior on the trails, but here is what I got.

Start of day; right after we paid to get on the trails







2 Hours into the day, took one of about 7 piss breaks (Large coffee was merciless!):









Lunch time, after i ran and fixed the rear end:








End of day, before loading onto the truck:






Helmet later that night at home:

Going back out on the same trails as a few weeks ago tomorrow. Going to be a little colder and muddier, as it is raining today. Should be fun. Will be 4 DRZ riders, me, and a utility quad (rental of some sort).

I've handled out all the issues that broke from last ride and found some other stuff out.

1. my rear rotor is WARPED to hell and back. I have no idea how I did not realize this, but its so warped it managed to take all the pad material off one brake pad, and most off the other. It is also rubbing into the metal bracket of the pad with no material. I just hammered it as straight as I could and I'll replace after this ride. I did not find this out until yesterday, so not time to fix.

The rear brake pedal also takes a few pumps, at random, to get pressure. I am not sure if this is the master cylinder or what, but I think I am going to just replace the entire rear brake system this winter.

Also, the carb has 'sorted itself out'. I will find out tomorrow about the random dying thing on the trails, but it is starting normally, and idling fine on it's own.

We will see how tomorrow goes. I have a lot of winter projects on this thing to do, that is for sure.

Probably going to need to buy some rear tires for my Honda Odyssey FL250 soon. I think it might have the original rear tires on it (if not, they're at least 25 years old).

It doesn't have rear suspension on it, so I need something with some give. What's a good brand (and place online to buy) of knobby type tire these days?

So the Hammerhead took a good roll. The cage worked as designed, but looks like I will be buying some replacement parts.

Is synthetic cable really that much better for a winch?
Was plowing the snow this last storm, and the cable finally broke.

There is no comparison, synthetic rope is far superior to metal cable for standard winching.

Herein lies the problem, synthetic winch line will break in a short amount of time too if used for plowing... been there and done that. Instead, get yourself a 20' tow strap that has gates on the hook, at somewhere like hobo freight or similar, and cut the strap in two. At each cut end, create about a 1/2" x 4" tab and use a lighter to melt the cuts so it doesn't fray. During winter, remove your winch line and replace with the strap for plowing. I've been using the same 1/2 of tow strap going on 5 years now with a fairly heavy, front mount 60" plow blade and the strap is not ready to replace. When it is time to replace, I have the second 1/2 already.

FYI to my setup, the action on the plow was a bit too quick and with the plow being heavy, I added in a removable roller to my front bumper. That roller was purchased from a boat vendor and is a trailer keel roller.

My 20 year old Wolverine is still kicking ass in snow. I had to take apart the carb last fall and clean everything. It wasn't easy, but it runs beautifully now... most of the time.

I think I may have a thermostat problem. I have no issues whatsoever when plowing, but I also never get out of 2nd gear or go faster than a few MPH. However, the last time I ran it at about 30-35 MPH for a few minutes, everything bogged down. It barely crawled home, but the overheat light never came on. I'm not really concerned since it does just fine plowing and I never take it on extended excursions anymore.

Here she is. Those are the original tires and they are filled with plugs. I need new tires.

Not sure where else to put this so I'll leave it here. Vid taken last week. There are some long switch back trails that were fun to go wot and connect drifts together. If I end up keeping it, I'll throw on some legit coilovers in the new year.

Whatís powering that thing? Looks like a blast!

I picked up a 2021 General XP4 Pursuit Edition a month or so ago to plow the driveway at our new house (honey itís 100% needed, I swear!).

But have also been taking it out on the lake. Was the perfect amount of snow at the time for drifting.

It has a 2008 GSXR-1000 engine. Engine only has 1500 miles, maybe 500 miles on the buggy.

If I decide to keep it, Iíll be doing legit coilovers with external coilovers, a quicker steering rack with power steering, and OMP seats. Might enter it in a few hill climb races and some stage rally stuff.

I have to say, ive owned almost every sport quad yamaha has ever made, the warrior was probably my favorite after the 660 raptor. When the world ends from nuclear war, it'll be cockroaches and warriors running around lol

Haha indeed. Though mine has small amount of blue smoke on startup after sitting a few weeks. I've never ridden anything besides this and a Polaris Trailblazer ATV wise, so I don't know much else. I fawn over the Raptor 660 and 700's though. I'll probably keep the Warrior in the family for my son when he is ready to upgrade, and get myself a 700 at that time.

On a related note, I got selfish and sent the rear shock out for a rebuild and revalve. It's a 660 rear shock and I have a feeling it is not healthy after running a few days on it. Was an as-is used purchase, and even with 75% preload on it, felt soft. It was odd; the Raptor shock made the warrior rear sit up about an inch or 2 higher with no weight on it, but it felt like it sat an inch or 2 lower when I was sitting on it. Made it feel weird at times. Hoping the revalve and adding extra pre-load will remove that sag.

We getting railed by snow. My neighborhood has some fellow UTV/ATV guys that run the streets when they are snowed in, and I wanted to join in the fracas, but my ATV has no rear shock

That's why I love my Wolverine. It's basically a Warrior with 4WD. In 20 years of ownership, I've been lucky. Had to change the battery a couple times and clean the carb last year, but that's about all I've needed to do. This thing is solid.

I may be biased, but I don't think there has ever been a better sport/utility quad made than the Wolverine.

So, I've pivoted and I am going to try and get a 2-up Quad so that my wife and son can do weekend trips to our local off road park with me and our friends. I've been browsing and there aren't a ton available, because I am sure it is not a widely sought after feature on a quad. So far I have seen:

Polaris X2 or Touring (name depends on year it seems)
Can Am Max
Arctic Cat TRV
CFmoto Cforce Touring


Any others I am missing? Looking to spend around 4K so the Can-Ams are generally out of that range because Can Am is the status symbol of the ATV world. I did find a nice 08 Polaris 800 X2. I am worried that might be too much machine for a novice rider? It's the right price though.

IMHO the 2-up quads are pretty heavy so having 800cc isn't a bad thing. Weight is really a penalty if you're in the sand and really need to throw it around. I would think on a trail it shouldn't matter as much? We've got a Kawasaki 700 and you definitely feel the weight. It's definitely not slow though.

Sort of what I was thinking. The Polaris is 55HP/51Tq at peak, and weighs roughly 900 wet. The Warrior is 19HP at 400 lbs wet, so the Polaris is more powerful overall, but doesn't seem dramatically much more so per pound.
