Not really a true statement. Wolverines are shaft driven 4x4's, with an automatic clutch and a 5 speed transmission. A lot of the components are the same, but it's not swappable.look for wolverine motors also, they are the same engine.
Other than a yamaha dealer, I don't know of anywhere else to get a new one. For the price of a new engine you could get a streetbike motor installed in it. You wouldn't have reverse, but it would sure get up and go quicker.Does anyone know where/who I can buy a new engine from?I just want the engine by itself.
