Thats a big one, everytime my girlfreind wrecks on my 400ex it would bend the stock grab bar bad. I finally bought an aftermarket one and she found a way to bend that too. :lol:

For the most part they all have, its just a matter of how bad. Creases in the plastics most common. Raptors are easy to roll. The key thing is that the frame is not bent or the welds are not cracked. Lots of after marked parts are their because the factory ones broke. I rolled my raptor, the bars bent the plastics creased, thats all. I hit a tree the bumper broke. For the most part if it was recked bad it would be very obvious!

These are indications of high force impacts, not nessecarily wrecks all of the time (excluding from list what others had already mentioned)

bent steering stem
bent tie rods
bent rims (some could be caused by hitting "things" in the trail)
broken brackets or mounts..such as lights (rear or front)
bent radiator or mild to heavy damage to the cores and heat sinks (fins)
bent axle (not all the time)
bent rear rotor
good sized dents in muffler
bent hand clutch
bent hand front brake
zip ties are an indication something happened as well
my few cents
