After I installed my Pro Armor nerfs, I became even less enamored with the "frame" guards on the machine. After you take off the stock heel guard, the plastic just kind of hangs there. It also gets the living crap scratched out of it when you ride. I hope somebody comes up with something to install in it's place. The problem is that piece ties into the rear fender and that little piece under the tank that has the 700XX logo on it. Usually you can get aluminum or carbon fiber frame guards for a quad, but that is going to be a problem on the XX. Hopefully someone figures something out. Just thinking/hoping out loud here.
