    Something I really like about the Wolverine is that I don't need to do many upgrades or improvements to it because it comes from the factory with so many features. Roof, EPS, KYB shocks, arched a-arms, LED lights, reverse lights, ... it's almost all there. Upgrades I see in the future will be to the clutch, maybe exhaust to get a few more ponies, something to get around the speed limiter, and TIRES! I had the ITP wheels and 26" Rip Saws from my Pioneer and they bolt right on to the Yamaha with the same 4/110 bolt pattern. Had to get new lug nuts because Honda and Yamaha use a different thread pitch - 12mm x 1.50 (Honda) vs. 12mm x 1.25 (Yamaha). I would have liked to use 27" tires but I already had these so 26" is fine. The stock tires are also 26".

    The R-Spec SE comes with aluminum wheels and they're pretty nice but I think I like the ITPs a little more.

    Very cool the wheels were a direct fit! I agree, the oem wheels are sharp, but I like the ITP/ Ripsaw combo more for sure.

    I'm gonna try to get the meeting time figured out this week. It'll be Friday in Mackinaw City, just not sure when.
