    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 think unless your using the low power mode a lot it will be useless. It's a good idea and works well but once I'm used to a throttle having it take twice the travel for same result feels really weird to me. I hit it on accident while rigging up a roof and thought the parking brake stuck. It would be good for letting a novice drive though. I thought it may help on muddy climbs to keep the wheel spin down but these Carnivores need to spin pretty hard to keep cleaned out. Power is really smooth on these and it's rumored to be limited in low range anyway. It feels like Kawi may have some ecm tuning protect the belt. I'll mess with it some more and see if there is ever a time it helps.

    You're not driving the roof corners and the wheel edges at the same time through trees. Enjoy and please continue to update us!

    Years ago I made a roof for my ‘05 Rhino out of aluminum diamond plate, with drip edges on the front/back edges. Later I painted it with some black Rhino liner. (I thought it wa appropriate. LOL.)

    Those FENDER are much larger than my oem factory fenders. I never noticed those on Wolverines before. Is that an option or SE included set on an X2?

    One thing I noticed and wary of after reading the KRX video is the wheels not only way outside the narrower chassis. Is there is not Mud, splash protection for machine nor driver. It was an issue even with my Yamaha fender that came with it. I had to extend the width, however not enough. If its a wet sloppy trail both machine AND driver are going to need Power Wash Down!!! The Wives would like giving you a healthy blast I am sure!!

    That's a Rhino in the above post.

    I can confirm the factory fenders are worthless. They have an OEM wide fender but it's 500 and looks easy to break. There are a few aftermarket solutions and I'm planning on just making my own flares.

    Thanks !!!
    Thought I missed something. I'd wonder if they work on a Wolverine.
    I did make my own from rubber truck mudflap all in another thread. Minimal cost, < $25 as well
