hey guys - I am ordering trailtech xbars.. with the vapor, and dashboard....

Should i get black bars.... or polished bars.... ? ? ?
I mean the dashboard and vapor with be polished - so it would match with the polished bars,,... or with the black bars the dashboard and vapor would like stand out more...
Which do you all think ? ?
quick responses are appreciated... i told Steve at techquad i would call him right back

here are a couple pics of my bike...

Re: TrailTech X Bars... - help needed fast...

The bars that are on there now are more of a grey color than polished... even tho they dont look like it....
I will also have those exact same spider grips on these new trailtech bars... just fyi...

So black bars with dashboard... or polished bars... ? ?

I say go with black only because you have nothing else thats polished that i can tell. Might even think about getting them painted the same color as the nerfs. just my humble opinion.. WOODY

Re: TrailTech X Bars... - help needed fast...

yea they make them in red - and that was my first thougt too - but the red isnt the same red thats in my bike... its a darker red... i think i might go with black.... Black was my first thought... but then Steven was talkgin about the polished...
Woody - your right i dont have anything else that is polished... i thought about getting them powder coated also... so you think go with the black ? / maybe in the futur powdercoating..

hey i think the black would be way better . i've had the blk before w/ crome clamps they give you. the black goes nice against the white and accents all the other blk on the quad.

the trail tech red may not match perfect to the candy apple the raptor has

Re: TrailTech X Bars... - help needed fast...

Thanks again for all the suggestions - i went with BLACK - ill post pics once i get everything installed

Woody - I am kinda confused about that link you posted up - Where will it put those "8 lights" ? ? Bcs even with the Vapor and dashboard - i will still have the display on the top of the radiator - that like shows R or oil light and stuff like that...
so on our atvs where will it put those 8 lights... i wonder ?

Re: TrailTech X Bars... - help needed fast...

Just reqad over the page again and I dont think it worth it. 1) we dont need turn signals indicators 2) dont really need high/low beam indicators. 3) we already have a temp light and a Reverse light. So its a waste of time sorry lol thought it was cool at first but no so much now LOL. later WOODY

Re: TrailTech X Bars... - help needed fast...

HAHAH - -we think alike - bcs i gave TRAILTECH a call ... they said it is pretty much worthless for the raptors.... but anyway - it does look cool - just wouldnt do much for us... ha ha

oh ya - Everyone - I ended up going with the "high bend" - - anyone think this will be TOO high ? ? since i am installing the dashboard also ?
I am 6ft 5in tall.... steve said that if it is too tall, then to give him a call, and he will let me return them for the mid bend...
