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.

shonie777 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.

I thought the same thing. Probably makes good handles for a passenger. Wonder if its strong enough to put a deer on.

shonie777 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.

Helmets didn't come with them either... just saying... lol

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

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.

I have had my foot land in front of the peg. Which quickly results in the tire grabbing your foot and yanking you off the quad. I won't ride without nerfs. I just posted mine for sale though because i'm tired of my 23" tires rubbing them. 22" tires would have been fine, but the 23's rub. Great bars in the classified section. Check my sig for direct link.

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

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.
