|xinu||The rack should be able to support at least as much weight as the grab bar it bolts on to. As well the rack also bolts to frame where the grab bar mounts. I'll include some pictures and you can judge for yourself.|

I get tired of lugging all my crap around in a backpack on long trail rides. It would be nice to have something like that to strap all my stuff on and possibly a rifle.
I dunno if it would handle the weight and size of a deer though. But you never know.

Nerfs were also the very first thing I installed on both my 700xx's. Even with mild riding on the trails around here, I still ran over my foot a number of times when slipping off the peg.
I like the rack you installed on your 700xx. I always wondered what that rack looked like on a 700xx. How durable is it? Any issues other than the seat is a bit harder to install?

A lot of having nerf bars is also confidence. But like you siad, it depends on how you ride.

|xinu||I think I understand the safety benefits of nerfs as described in previous posts. Knowing how overly safety conscious Honda is, I figured if Honda didn't provide nerfs in stock configurations then they probably would not be required for the average rider. Maybe the utility market is where most of Honda's safety effort is concentrated and not so much on sport quads for obvious reasons. I'll have to think about it a bit more.|

|M_Quick||Yea 5WOP3 that’s exactly what I was afraid of. And its well worth the piece of mind having them. I probably don’t ride near as aggressive as some, but w/out nerfs I'd probably never left the ground, lol.|

oh... and i disagree with stuff getting stuck in them. I've never had that issue. I must be going to fast.

Was the 1st thing I added to my 700. I cant afford to be off work with a busted up ankle. Although after 2 sessions of riding I dont think I have ever sliped off the foot pegs.

|traitor08||Personally I do not like nerf bars. The down side is they catch a lot of debris from front tires, small branches and stuff get caught in the webbing, if there wider than the Atv you hit them on a lot of stuff. But the good is your ft aren't gonna get ran over if you slide off the peg, and they can be used as slides if the trail is so tight you have to slide around a tree.|
