Had one take a stick after I first got it. Should give years of service if you keep the bike clean. I've got the original boots on my Prairie from '02 and they have seen some severe conditions over the past 8 years and 3000 miles

What concerns me is the pop pop crack crack noise. That is not a good sign. If it were just torn boots with no CV joint damage, it would not be making noises. I would expect CV joint damage to boot... not to be punny.

It all depends on how long he rode it with the damage boot but the pop-crack could be due to lack of grease, basically they won't know for sure until they grease and install the new boot then take it out for a test ride. Those boot should be check at the end of each ride since they tend to get damage real quick.

yea, but i would only buy rears... so it is a waste of $$$ for the front and rear... I also like PRMs' main frame guard better then anyone else's because it is a FULL frame... not a two peice..
The other thing the worries me about the Company posted above is that the walls are soooo high. It looks like if i preloaded the rear suspension for a drop off the plate would rub on the tires.
Have you had any experience with them Nash?

That's what I and DaGirl have on our bikes and they work great! The heigth of walls were the main reason why we bought them. Have a lesser chance of a branch/rock to slide into the shaft area.

Mines clickin' as well, Gary and I were up in Oklahoma when mine broke the bands on both sides, so far one worm band clamp and a ziptie have kept them holding!

Mine only click on concrete though... not in the dirt.
