Nerf's

Installed Nerfbars on my XX this w/e and on my wifes 250EX.

Honda Racing on the XX. Went on perfectly..no banging, bending, or forcing anything. The straps are a bit of a PIA to get on around the frame but are just the right length and fit perfectly. Overall pretty sharp.

Tusk on the 250..didn't line up, a lot of banging with the ol rubber mallet..Gave up and took them over to a friend's house that is a electrician and used his conduit bender to get them right. OOps missing some hardware as well- off to the auto parts store to get a muffler clamp U bolt and some misc. locking nuts. 4 hours later it's on and looks OK. Made of mild steel instead of aluminium like the Hondas, so will have to keep an eye on it to prevent rust. Look and work ok, but i won't be buying anything from Tusk soon.

IMO the Tusk brand isn't worth the price with all the trouble you get from them. I've heard some pretty nasty install stories from them.

I've heard the Tusk are horrible to install as well as the Pro Armor ones. You're not the first to say the Honda Racing ones were a breeze to put on, I just wish they had some with built in heel guards. The AC Racing ones I put on my 400EX went on pretty easy, just the webbing was a bitch to do. That's what I plan on putting on the XX when I get it.

My stepson and I installed a set of Tusk red aluminum nerf's on his 250ex a year ago and it went very smoothly, no banging or bending. They look great and have held up better than I expected.


Does anybody know if the Honda nerf's come in black?

Don't think so. However, the silver nerfs and silver yosh pipe made my silver wheels look 1000x better lol

Honda Racing Nerfs FTW!

It's a sticker. It comes off with every rock you hit.
