I bent my stock front bumper from a rollover, tried to get it straightened out, but couldnt get it right. I looked all over the internet looking for a replacement, but everywhere i looked, the bumpers would just bolt onto the stock bumper, which is weak in my opinion. I looked on the Yamaha site, and found this one. I ordered it up, took 2 weeks to get because it was back ordered. When i opened the box, the first thing i saw was how beefy this bumper is. The tubing is at least 2x thicker then the stock bumper! Measurements shows the stock bumper being 3/4", and this one is made of 1 1/4", and much thicker sidewall. It weighs a bit more too, showing its pretty heavy duty. The finish on the bumper is real nice too, seems like a better paint then their other stuff.
Super smooth. Everything lined up perfect, like it fell into place. This is a quality piece. Took all of 5 minutes to bolt up the 4 main supports and tighten them down. There are 2 headlight supports, holds the lights up really good, better then the stock plastic pieces did. Then there are the mounts for the fenders. You can use the standard plastic push rivets, but in my parts bin i found some of the bolts that are used to hold the floorboard to the fender, and these hold the fenders to the bumper really good, no more flimsy fenders. I plan on running without a front rack sometimes, and i was going to make supports for the fenders, but now the bumper holds the fenders so securely, i dont need to. There are also 2 mounts in the center of the top tube, for mounting aftermarket PIAA or other lights. Overall, this is a great bumper, one of the better buys ive made.
$194-250 depending on dealer, got mine for $194
