Here is a couple of pics of my new add ons. The shocks are the biggest thing I've done so far. The HMF pipe and programmer with EHS lid and UniFilter make it go. It was dyno tuned by a guy from Piedmont MO at a measily 45 hp at the RW.

Looks nice and 45hp isn't bad, and from the looks of it the HMF is just a slip on. I may be wrong, but it looks like oem head pipe what little i can see.

No the pipe is a full HMF system. I just used the OEM heat shield on it.

What nerfs are those and how was the fitment.
Those are PRM nerfs powder coated black. They fit pretty well. I think I had a very small issue with a little extra powder coat but that was it.

Well so far I think I need to put in softer compression bushings. It came with red bushings and the dunes were a little choppy. To me I didn't really feel any flex. I just put the Fox floats on too so maybe my feel of the shocks being so smooth was partly the bars. I need to put in the yellow bushing and see how it does then.

Looks like you did a good job on adding the shield. I have same pipe system, and pretty happy with it so far. I couldn't get the 3rd bolt closest to the muffler to line up on mine. So its just supported under the gold piece.:nuts:

I had to move the clamps around a little to put the heat shield on but I got it on there. I just wish I would have put on the back portion of it too. It tends to get a little hot there between the shield and the frame.

Yea that's why I only have two of the 3 bolts showing. The bend in the black piece is closer to a 90 degree angle, and the HMF pipe is more like 45 degree's. So my other bolt is on the black piece, I could of drilled a hole in black shield, so it wouldn't appear to be missing a bolt. But it don't vibrate and it's no show bike.



This picture I am pointing to where the clamp is underneath on the black heat shield. Like I said I could of drilled a hole in the black shield, and move clamp down, to make it look right. And one day I may, but IDK when lol.

I have the PRM Side Bars and love the fit. I just wish PRM had added the heel guard to rear fender connection to their nerfs like they did with the side bars.

Not sure that the side bars are any different than the nerfs for mounting to the rear fender. Mine have tabs that mount to the fenders.

Thanks for your review on the flex bars. I recently rode a Suzuki with them and couldnt tell much either with the red bushings. But to be fair these bars were adjusted too far forward for me so I was pushing them ad the wrong angle for them to work. Another question, how do the Sand Star fronts compare to the stockers or a single rib? I already have the rears and ran a set of barrowed single razor fronts on my last dune drip but am thinking these would be best wen I buy.

Thanks

OK, good to know if a little late. The lack of the fender connection was my deciding factor on which to get. This just means that PRM did a bad job of accurately showing the product in the picture.

The Sand Star fronts turn better than the Razr2's did. If I could do it over I wouldn't buy SandStar rears again. They kill too much horsepower. SkatTraks would be a better choice. I just like how the fronts don't have any rolling resistance.

I wasn't sure when I bought them so I called to make sure that they had a mount for the rear fenders. We tow too many miles with the quads sideways to not have fender brackets.
