My Wolvie has the 450 and I love it. I do wish it had more power sometimes but if you're just trail riding the 450 is plenty!

We had one of those too. It was great for when you needed 4x4 but still wanted mostly a sport quad.

Really the 450's only make a jump and then after that the 700 powers all the way through. Probably mostly due to the 1st gear being some what lower than the 1st gear of the 450's.

It's a great quad. I want a sport but I gotta trailer it about 1.5 - 3 hrs from here to find a nice track for it. The Wolverine is just the perfect balance between a sport and utility, IMO. I can pop it into 4x4 when I wanna look for trouble in deep mud, but I can also keep it in 2x4 when I find a nice track to ride on. 2006 Yamaha Wolverine 450. My favorite! Used to have a 1999? Yamaha Warrior and the first day I took it out I got stuck with that damn 2x4!
