headscratch Problem installing nerf bars...

I have the Pro Armor fat nerf bars...I got them on the 700xx, and all hardware is loose. The left side fell in place perfect and the mounting hole for the lower arm fits perfect. The bolt will slide right in and is good to go. Now move to the right side and the front arm bolt is no where close to the hole. I can push on it and move it enough to see the bolt but not line up. So I backed the bolts off that hold the foot pegs on..a little closer...ok so now what ?? I took the left side off and then the right side fell in place..this is getting old quick..getting pissed.....Now back to the left side and got it on and bolt through the nerf bar.....Back to the right side again..now it does not line up again....Damn it...beer time..........So I sat back and looked at all the parts really good. I can tell where the two nerf bars fit together one side is a little bent towards the front of the quad. I put a drift in the tube and moved it some but it fell back to its normal position. All the hardware is loose and all the holes line up but not when the two are joined together...So what do I do...am I missing something ??? I do work 3rd shift and have been up since 8pm last night. I guess I am getting tired and just missing something...Please help !!.....I am going to get some rest and try this again later on...

Mine fitted the same as yours did. It was the alignment of the front two tubes where they connect together . I tweaked the two parts to line up properly in the vice. Its kinda fiddly and theres not much space on the frame and watch you dont crush the tubes , there kinda soft.

Do you have the steel peg that bolts to the frame bolted to the nerfs yet? If you do, that is most likely the problem, those were the last bolts I put in. If you have all the bolts started, you can get the bolts through those steel pegs with a little persuation from a rubber hammer!

Crash....got the Nerf bars from KB Motorsports...did a search online and found them....They had one set left they were the silver ones but I would just paint them black..Ordered them last Wed...go them on Thurs...Talk about fast shippment. They came from Kentucky and I live in Alabama. i just got a buch of sites and started calling them to see who had them instock...paid 322.00 for them but they had them and I went ahead and got them..I have been reading where everyone has been put on backorder for several weeks now...So I paid the extra to get them. They look great and I painted them with a Metallic black paint, which made them look good..as soon as I get them mounted I will post a few pics...

Mine did the same thing. Took 4 hours to install nerf bars, had to drill the right nerf bar hole bigger to get it in. Told that by e-mail to Pro Armor & they never replied. talk about good service. If I didn't pay this much money for all the Pro Armor stuff I've got on there, I'd f***ing cut there parts in 6 inch tubing & send them back to Pro Armor so that they couldn't sell them back. Never seen anything like this Pro Armor crap in the quad or dirt bike world.

I got my bumper from pro-armor but I will not be buying the nerfs, I think they look great but you shouldn't have to retrofit custom nerfs.

Sounds like Pro-Armor is having some quality issues from all the bad feedback I've been hearing just during the past week alone.
