    Mud flaps done now

    It takes me a while to get things done....it happens when you're older. There isn't a rush and I was working on my daughter SUV repairing a no start which was the transmission selector switch neutral circuit combo. Its done and I got to this yesterday.

    FYI This protrudes 1.5" out at the top from the existing fender guards and follow down and almost flush with the bottom ridge of the frame area. I did not want it sticking way out like ears of an elephant. It would catch too much wind and likely result in other issues. It doesn't affect narrow areas I need to squeeze through either so I can still fit through. I power washed the mud I had on it but it needs a soap wash for sure.

    These are rubber flaps I bought on Amazon and 18" long. This mod covers the area below the top fender area which is recessed a lot permitting the tire debris to be flung forward in mass. I should not have been like that.

    Ideas for any other enterprising people to employ.

    Guys something to consider when mounting your rear flaps, and I learned this the hard way last year, it that if you have a water crossing that is seat deep you will flood your CVT and to get access to the drain plug you need to open that rear quarter panel which means you need to remove your rear flap. Make sure your flap is easily removable with the tools you carry!

    Mud flap mod should only attach to the side panel itself by use of rivets etc.. then when you take out the two bolts in front of the rear tire to remove the side panel the flap stays attached to it and there is no need to wrench on it more than it was factory!

    Nice install with the factory style push pins, looks very clean! I'm probably going to do something just like this in the near future since i recently installed 1.5" wheel spacers.

    I used the top bolt for the flaps. I had to buy a longer on for the gas tank side as I couldn't get it started. They 6mm if needed. Yes the rest are all plugs which I had a box used for the Kingquad 7xx panels. They are fairly large plug. I don't expect all the splash will be stopped but it should make a huge improvement and especially around the gas filling area which gets mercilessly covered as well as the inside of the doors.

    Thanks for the details. Looks like it should help. I need to find a solution that I like... I'm not fond of the stock fender flares and need to add some mud protection. This is literally from puddle splashes over the past two days and nothing more.

    I've always liked how clean I can stay in the X4. My buddy has a polaris 900S and it looks like he's been drug behind the machine rather than riding in it. I'm quick to point out how this doesn't happen on the yami! haha

    I was out for a ride yesterday. Although I did my best to avoid as much wet spots as I could. Its never possible when they're out there. Splatter was essentially restricted to the rear area and into the channel in the OEM guard which over laps mine at the top. Some water and mud picked up came out and down. But the flinging forward was greatly minimized. My rear tires are still wider than the flaps. front tire can do damage as well but only in cases there the wheels are turned. I did not hit enough for any effect from the front tires. Some dirt on the top of the OEM guard since its not far enough out but that doesn't come forward against my arm, back, control of the console, or door

    Please with this solution and look.
