The Yamaha Timberwolf 250 is a smaller all-terrain vehicle that provides the rider with increased maneuverability. The Timberwolf 250 is equipped with a front and rear cargo rack on which the rider can use bungee cords or rope to strap down tools or supplies and transport them to remote locations. The Yamaha Timberwolf is a 2x4 all-terrain vehicle -- only the rear wheels receive drive power from the engine.
The Yamaha Timberwolf 250 is equipped with an air-cooled four-stroke engine with an electric starter. However, on cold weather days the electric starter may not create enough spark to start the ATV. The driver can use the pull start back-up that is standard on all Yamaha Timberwolf ATVs. The Yamaha Timberwolf has an automatic transmission and five forward gears, plus reverse.
Struts on the front of the Yamaha Timberwolf provide the ATV with the ability to absorb the jolts that can occur while riding over uneven or rough terrain. The struts possess the ability to move almost 5 inches to absorb jolts. The rear suspension consists of a swing arm with a single shock absorber to help keep the rear of the Yamaha Timberwolf from bouncing out of control. Avoid high speed or sharp turns because this ATV has a short wheel base of 44 inches.
The Yamaha Timberwolf 250 is a compact all-terrain vehicle. The total weight of the ATV when dry and clean is 438 lbs. The ATV is 72 inches from the front bumper to the rear bumper and approximately 40 inches wide. From the ground to the top of the seat is 30 inches and 42 1/2 inches from the ground to the handle bars. This smaller size may cause some discomfort for taller riders. The Yamaha Timberwolf ATV gas tank can hold up to 2 1/2 gallons of regular gas.
