Mine has never popped open yet but the fit finish & lock is not up to Yamaha's quality , Yamaha needs to improve that rear storage compartment . I carry a cheep tow strap back there but to put anything of value back there no way .
I have rode hundreds of miles with my tow strap , clevis , and snatch block in mine. Its alot of weight , and have not had it pop open. I would say , make sure you are clicking the latch all the way , as mine you can feel it get tight as you turn it , then turn harder and it clicks. Maybe yours is not "clicking" as tight as mine ? maybe that could be adjusted , I will look when I am home later.Ive seen the complaints people have made against the rear storage not being water or dust proof, and never really put much thought into it. It does have a drain plug and figured I could put it to some use one day, one way or another.
So I got my winch installed the other week and figured I would buy a few items. This kit came with everything I needed, including a nice bag. It fit really nicely in the rear storage area.

I get back from my 1+ hr ride and I see the storage compartment open and the accessory kit is gone. What a joke. I lock it and pull it to see how this could of happened and it opened up way too easily.
Just a heads up for anyone with a 16. We need to find a way to keep these closed!!
i agree , it could have been made better....:rating02:Maybe my door is defective. I made sure it was clicked all the way tight and was still able to pull it into the open position. Will look deeper into it. Either way, I would say this is my biggest complaint on the machine so far. Its amazing, but this rear storage is silly.
Was thinking about that. Will give it a shot. ThanksMy 2016 wolverine rspec had the same issue with the glove box .. would bounce open on rough terrain. I have the feeling it may be the same stupid set up. Fixed mine with a lil heat and some bending
My tabs don't even fit in on the top, there's actually a gap between the box and the top finish, its really bad. The Polaris a family member has, has a real sturdy knob with a metal blade on the inside. If I can figure it out, im really considering seeing if I can buy one and replace the knob, at least that way I could be confident that its closed.I must agree that thing is not confidence inspiring. I have to squish the sides in while I close it for those two little tabs on the top edges to tuck in and locking it closed it feels like the knobs gonna break off. At least if it has that much tension its not gonna pop open... I hope.
I heard the new Can-Ams are coming standard with on board Fire Extinguishers. :icon_ goofy:This is not inspiring to someone who's buying a new quad this summer. It's going to be a Can-am or a Grizz... Step it up Yamaha.
Either way during negotiation, get the Yami dealer to throw in a 12" bungee for the rear storage, or the canned ham dealer to throw in a fire extinguish with the purchase.This is not inspiring to someone who's buying a new quad this summer. It's going to be a Can-am or a Grizz... Step it up Yamaha.
