Rear Grab Bar diameter

anyone know the diameter of the rear carry bar on the Raptor? Im looking at options to mount my license plate(Arizona requires it). I was going to buy 2 rubberized P clamps but wasnt sure of the exact diameter of that bar.

Check out this thread.

I used the factory Yamaha plate mount that comes on our Canadian models and fabbed up some new brackets that mount it to the rear grab bar bolts on the sub frame. When I had it mounted on the grab bar it made it difficult to reach the seat latch. Where it is mounted now is perfect and has easy access to the seat latch.

Part numbers are on page 2.

Take a open end wrench and slide it over the bar for a snug fit. Probably 3/4, and that is the size of the bar.

i saw this thread and considered it. Getting that bracket was going to be a pain tho. I also wasnt thinking about the plate blocking the rear light if i were to mount it on the bar without the canadian bracket. I ended up just drilling the back of the nerf bar and mounted it there,hopefully its acceptable to law enforcement.

Sorry i havent been on here for a while. I dont have a picture of mine but i found a picture and drew where i mounted it. I did nothing special, just marked my holes and drilled the back of the nerf bar. Hope this helps you.

Don't rocks, sand, mud and other debris hit it? I mean that's why you have the plastic protection. I'm sure a broken branch will tear it out with screws still in it.

Nope nothing will tear it off as its not hanging below the bar and its sitting flat against the plate. I guess rocks might hit it if all stars align but its in a safe spot as 99.9% of debris will be flung backwards. Ill try and get a picture of it tonight
