From the farthest point forward on the plastic (right under the tuning fork logo) to the winch hook hanging from the roller fairlead is 10 inches. From that same point the the shackle attachments on the front of the bumper itself is 6 inches.

If you go to my pictures section you can see my Yamaha a arm guards. I haven't had a problem cleaning them out, they are open on the outside ends which let you hose them out pretty well. :cool:

Ordered my guards, skid, and mirror from EMP this evening. If they're in stock, I should have them Friday and will get them put on this weekend.

any updates on these guys? Torn between the OEM at a discounted price with my dealer or the EMP if either are really necessary. Its likely a stick will get up there and poke it moreso than something else I presume.

I cant seem to find the specs on the OEM thickness.

My Yamaha A arm skids are 1/8 thick.

My OEM plastic one broke off.

Was looking at the aluminum ones. Is there any chance of them bending into a CV boot and taring it to shreds?
It would be difficult for the aluminum ones to bend into the CV boot. The angle and force required of the object hitting it would likely destroy the boot anyway if the guard were not there.

That's a hell of a price...I have never used Ricochet before, because they have always been overpriced, but that is really a bargain. I have a full set of Yamaha front and rear sitting new in the box at home that I am holding for a guy who is interested in buying them. The yamaha ones are definitely better build quality than the EMP, no doubts there. I Imagine the ricochet will be on par with the yamaha ones.
