Grab Bar breaking? Check this out!!!

I am designing a stainless/aluminum grab bar that should hold up much better than any grab bar I have ever tested on a quad. If there is anyone interested in buying one you should post it here. They are super strong and I have never broken one yet through various amounts of testing. They are extremely strong! If you are interested and are willing to help me out I can start up a website selling these bad boys. I will try to get pictures up soon! If you are interested pictures are on my account. and you can contact me at [email protected]

Welcome to the forum.

I am looking for a rear grab bar that is lower than the stock one.

so far I have not damaged the sub frame from hitting the grab bar. the grab bar only bend up slightly once but still didn't break the subframe. This is from pulling wheelies and purposely hitting the back.

I may be able to make a custom dropped grab bar, how far do you want it dropped? and what reason so I can design accordingly

there is always the risk of breaking the subframe tho, do not try to hit the grab bar on the ground! I only do this for testing purposes

I am also thinking of making one with a built in license plate holder/ registration plate if anyone is interested in that? I know it can be a pain to mount registration numbers on these sport quads.

also I may design a 2 up seat that goes over the back hooking to the grab bar and the foot pegs, is this something that would sell? or be of interest?

The point of using weaker (softer) materials is that they will deform and absorb energy so the important parts don't get damaged. Think of a car shell. Wheels, bumpers, engine, pannels all of that will become damaged and fall off in order to prevent damage to the inner structure. Same thing is with rear grab. You don't want a really tough one because the force will transfer forward and break or damage the next weakest thing which is probably sub frame or bolts that are holding it. Hit it enough times and you'll end up with a banana raptor. Just my opinion.

2016 Raptor 700R, Street legal, HID kit, 15T front, AIS delete, Jogaca suspension, Adjustable rear link, LSR 2+1 A-Arms, Axcalibar axle, PC5 w/timing and autotune, full Dasa exhaust, Talon 36T rear or stock 38T
