    ATV Tire Pressure

    Tire pressure can play a key role in the traction, ride quality, and handling of your ATV.  It’s something that should be checked before every ride for safety and to help achieve optimum performance.

    Knowing what tire pressure to run begins with knowing the recommended pressures for your tires. For example, the Yamaha Raptor 700’s tires have a recommended operating pressure of 4 PSI, with a minimum pressure of 3.6 PSI, and a maximum seating pressure of 36 PSI. These numbers will vary from tire to tire and can be obtained by checking your owner’s manual for original equipment tires or with the tire manufacturer for aftermarket tires.

        Yamaha Wolverine Green

        As we wrote about in February, we are expecting Yamaha to come out with a pure Sport Side-by-Side in the relatively near future. We’ve been hunting hard for information to back up our thoughts and a recent trademark filing by Yamaha has thrown a little more fuel on the fire.

        On April 9, 2015 Yamaha trademarked the name YXZ SS. While it doesn’t seem like much, we think it could be the name of the vehicle we’ve been waiting for. Let us explain why.

          Yamaha Raptor 700R Engine Break In

          The first thing most of us want to do when we take home a new ATV is squeeze the throttle and start going fast. While that is a good way to get your adrenaline fix, it’s not the best thing for your ATV’s engine.

          To help consumers get the most out of their machines, Yamaha is putting together a series of Sport ATV tech tip videos. The first video, which you can see below, smartly tackles the dos and don’ts of breaking in a new engine.

            2016 Yamaha Wolverine

            Production of the new Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec Side-by-Side vehicle is in full swing this month at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Ga. Yamaha dealers are receiving units this month.

            The all-new Wolverine R-Spec sets a new standard in off-road capability and class-leading comfort. It is designed and engineered for exploring extreme terrain and features an all-new nimble chassis with a compact design, look and feel. The Wolverine’s comfortable and secure cab has seating for two, and its injection-molded composite fixed-position cargo bed is both lightweight and durable for long, rough rides.
