Maybe mine were just the exception to the rule then. I have no doubt they are solid...buuut the fitment was poor and the instructions provided (I know, how hard is it really to just figure it out) were incomplete.

I don't have a workshop or workbench or room for much more than the atv trailer in garage so I installed while on the trailer...if I had a simple vice and some basic space to properly bend them it would've been fine...but I don't have that so I just did a lot of cursing instead.

Here's a pic of the front of the bars, where they are supposed to connect with an aluminum sleeve

You're supposed to slide the tubes together, then bolt to frame and foot pegs. This puts tension on the bars to prevent rattles and vibrations.

@DEZPERADO I definitely tried many different ways, but sliding / connecting the bars before mounting to the pegs just wasn't working for me.

Regardless, OP should get Nerf bars and if he goes with gytr I hope he has better luck than I did

Ha! That is funny with the webbing. There were zero instructions with that and I put them on how I could. Just in case anyone wants to know, the work upside down quite well.

i never had nerfs before. when i got this bike a few years back it has AC nerfs on them, i am very happy with them. i did replace the webbing(didnt need to) but i prefer black vs the color they had on it. i use the crap out of mine standing on them and resting my feet on them like im sitting in a lazy boy. ive been throwing around the idea of getting a new/newer raptor and if i do i think im going to go with the houser nerfs.

Run metal heel guards, nerfs just hang you up and nets turn to junk after few seasons.

2005 KFX700 good bit of mods
2001 Raptor 660R too many mods
