I was at Silver Lake Sand Dunes Saturday ( say that fast 3 times :hey: ) with my XX and after ridding for 3 hours the flag mount broke off the rear grab handle. I went back to the truck to load it up and parked next to me was a guy with a 700XX and his flag mount broke off too. Does anyone have the Honda aluminum rear handle and does the flag mount look like it will hold up.

I have a stock rear grab bar and have done lots of sand trips with no problems with the mount. My flag is just about toast though... starting to splinter at the base.. not long now before it snaps.

No I think I will get an after market aluminum bar and beef up the flag mount by welding on a thicker piece of aluminum.

I bought a spring mount off of eBay and that works great! $20 shipped I think but I haven't broken a flag since either so pays for itself quick and it would take the pressure off your mount because the spring will do the flexing

I had the same thing happen to me at silver lake. Everything was fine until I went through the trees. Now I have a PRM desert bar. The flag mount is 1/4" thick and has no problem with the big flag. I hope to be there this weekend weather permitting.
