    Here is a pic I found online of the premium roof after a roll over. As soon as looked at one in person and knocked on it I knew it din't stand a chance in our trails. It feels like painted plexiglass.
    Suggestion, as you're making your own. I was sitting on my deck having a cold one. I big Kubota came by on the main road with it ROPS secured to a steel diamond pattern roof. Sides were bent angle down about 45 degree, otherwise straight out. No supports just on the ROPS as you know are on there rear behind the drive. That steel is use for truck boxes etc and chrom like finished. It would be very strong and I believe the weight would work out.

    Giver her some thought!!
    Cheers and enjoy riding.

    Nice purchase! If I were to sell the x2, I’d probably go krx too.

    Thing is 68 inches it to wide for many situations. those who have ATV 50 inch trails, wider trails that 60 inches just clears. Its not for everybody for sure and most of us don't need the more than double the HP or 3 time a Gen 1.

    I'll hang on to the old lady here. No harm in a test drive but no divorce!!

    Agreed. Making your own roof is the way to go.

    Hey JRA congrats, hope it works out well for you.
    I am curious about the power/driving modes, let us know what you think of that system as you put it through its paces.

    I got a 4x8 sheet of 1/8th aluminium sitting in the shed I picked up last year for $25 for just such I project. I didn't need it at the time but the price was to good to pass up.

    2034 miles and 223.5 hours.

    What got this whole thing started was filling out an online trade form when I was bored at work. They offered 9500.00 at 18266 OTD for the new machine, which I knew was to good to be true, and I couldn't get to the dealer fast enough. They dropped 3k off the rip claiming they thought it was an X2 and I walked away. He stopped me and we got to 7500 for the gen 1 and got the KRX to 17,784 OTD. I this point I still refused to unload the Wolvy or put anything more then a 100 deposit that was refundable over the phone until they could get me an interest rate and payment I was happy with. They called the next with pretty good deal and we set up the deal for Friday AM. I found the bad bearing while removing any part that wasn't listed on the appraisal and figured they would to. They did and a tie rod then tried to drop another 500. I told them I'd load it back up and then we got to 7300 and they install my accessories at no charge.

    I wish it was smaller for legal reasons but in 150 miles of very tight trails it never stopped me. I believe the body is narrower at the A pillar then the Wolvy, it's just in the amount the tires stick out. My gen 1 was 63-64 wide anyway. On the trail 2 inches on each side isn't noticeable.

    Not the best pic, but it's the difference in width.


    And just a little FYI, test drives end in divorce.
