I guess the rear mud guard kit has gone the way of the dodo bird also? I see TerrorATech makes an aluminum one... Anyone tried it?

I have it and it works great. It was easy to install. It was originally made for the European tags so it is a bit larger than others but it serves its purpose.

Thanks in advance for any comments.
I just installed the new Bags Connection City Bag on my 800XC and it is a perfect fit, well made and looks great. Got it at Twisted Throttle.

Rox risers are good, Rocky Mtn ATv has a good price on them.

On an unrelated note, has anyone here installed the Tiger Safari Tank? Thoughts?

headlight/brake modulators?

A proud new 2012 XC owner here. Has anyone installed headlight and/or brake modulators?

I had both on my wee before its premature demise at the hand of an inattentive lady in a 740LE, and they helped a lot to make myself more visible..

Apparently they didn't help enough...

I have the auxiliary brake light (flashing) unit that inmate pilot3 builds; it works very well and is pretty much plug-and-play.

Modulating headlights hypnotize oncoming drivers and draw them in like moths to a light bulb... I'll never run one, but to each his own...
