New Pro-Armor Bumper

I ordered a new pro-armor bumper for my 700xx today. Paid $112 shipped which I think is a pretty decent price.

Does anyone have the same bumper with some pictures?



I'm also looking for a set of nerf bars and I really like the pro armor ones, also black with heel guards. I won't be racing but I've heard they are a must have if you are doing a lot of trail riding. I've ran myself over before on quads and that was just with an hold honda 125 4-wheeler when I was a kid.

I'm looking for nerfs in the 250-350 price range. Any suggestions?

I'm definitely getting a 13t front sprocket because just riding my 700xx this weekend I can really see the benefit of beingable t get more low end and also it should really allow me to go forward in idle.

Any suggestions on which to get would be great.

Thanks guys.

Pro Armor has a bad reputation for not fitting very well. I've personally never had them but from what I've read, I will never buy from them.

My pro armor ones fit fine, the two top bolt bolt holes that are right in the plastic under the seat is the only problem i've had with them fitting, but they are nice, and I have used and abused them a little bit and they are holding up strong.

Mine has been send back to pro armor in DECEMBER the same bumper because of weld cracking and never got any answer back from the dealer.I called like 5 times and the dealer told me that pro armor never return their call... My next bumper will be an IMS as Matlock and I will modify my frame to use a 450r model.

Built, reliable and hard trailriden!

I have the same one, but not powder coated. The welds broke after about the 3rd or 4th ride. This has been a problem that is NOT exclusive to Pro Armor either. Many think it has something to do with the frame of the XX flexing. I had a friend re-weld mine and it has been fine. Pro Armor offered to give me a discount on another part, like a skid plate. To me, that was better than sending it back. Of course, not everyone has access to a shop to have theirs repaired either. I also have the nerfs, and they did not line up very well at all. It took a lot of tweaking to get them bolted up. I was extremely frustrated when I was installing them, but have liked the end result, as they look sweet and have held up very well. I like the fact that you can replace the foot pegs, all nerfs should have that option, IMO.

I have them on order i got a great deal through atv galaxy because I ordered two sets at once to bad pro armor is setting on thier @ss and have been on backorder for almost two months

as far as fitment goes you might have to fudge a bit to get them to work but they are a good quality product. in a mass production aftermarket line like this there is always variations they dont fit every one to a bike to make sure it fits just right

I saw the dominator bumper on someone else rig and decided to get that one instead. I bought it from Motor City Performance Cycle off ebay and they let me switch to the dominator instead of the xc. I have access to a shop if the weld breaks. I'm going to find some rubber washer material which will hopefully help keep it from breaking.

I had the black Pro XC bumper and the welds broke in less than 5 rides. The replacement they sent will not line up on the bottom hole because it's off by about 1/4". I haven't bothered to call Pro Armor because the last one they replaced took over a month from the time I sent it out until I got the new one. I will NEVER buy anything else from them.

Bummer to hear about Pro-Armor. I've heard both good and bad, since I've already got the bumper on the way I'll take my chances. I am going to do a little creative mounting and add some rubber gasket material that will hopefully help me out.

I've heard good things about the Pro-Armor nerf bars so long as you can get them installed (I've heard they don't line up well).

I really like he look compared to the other stuff I've seen.
