    I picked up my R on Saturday morning and immediately got a few accessories on it. I'll put a complete list in this post and update as I go. I also have a YouTube channel and will be uploading videos after I edit them. Link is in my signature.

    Initial thoughts: Quality/fit/finish is top notch. I'm coming from a 2017 RZR XP1K and where I'm used to self-tapping screws there's a nut and bolt with a rubber isolating washer to keep things quiet. In the 20ish backroad miles I rode I'll say the power is on par with my XP1K, but MUCH torque-ier (not a bad thing). With this being a Honda, I'm hoping/expecting to not have to fool with the repetitive maintenance items that require way too frequent of attention with RZRs (wheel bearings, bushings, u-joints, carrier bearing). I did remove the annoying door nets within 5 minutes of getting it home.

    Accessory List:
    • Honda OEM Lower Door Inserts
    • Honda OEM Lower Door Storage Bags
    • Honda OEM Trailing Arm Guards (I thought these were a must with the way the trailing arm mounts to the bottom of the knuckle to try and save the powder/arm)
    • SuperATV Flip-Out Windshield
    • PRP SB4.2 Harnesses and HondaSXS seatbelt bypass
    • Waterproof Fuse Relay Box for all electrical accessories
    • Rockblockz Fender Flares
    • 37" Light Bar
    • Swamp Donkey Overhead RGB Radio
    • TYT-8600 Two Way Radio (transplanting from XP1K)
    • 32" Maxxis Carnivores on Factory Wheels
    • 30" Dual Animated Booger Whips
    • Dual LED reverse light pods
    • Rock Lights
    • 4500 lb SuperATV Winch
    • L&W Fab Winch Mount
    • L&W Fab High Clearance Billet Radius Rods
    • L&W Fab High Clearance Lower A-arms
    • Honda OEM Steel Front Bumper
    • Honda OEM Steel Rear Bumper
    • AED Off-Road Fabrication Tree Kickers
    • Switch Panel from Honda Pioneer Switch Panels and Accessories
    • Honda OEM Rear Cargo Bag
    • Honda OEM Cage Corner Storage Bags

    Looks great and welcome to the "Ride Red" side.

    Check out the Switchpros wiring setup myself and 99svt used on our talons. Super easy and versatile. Eliminates all the relays fuses, etc. and still has all the protection. I was hesitant myself but very happy I spent the extra for it. https://amzn.to/2IsDi1n

    Thank you.

    I scoped out the Switchpros setup when I was reading through your thread and didn't go for it due to the cost. It certainly looks like a nice piece, but I already have the WFRB setup so couldn't justify the cost.

    Here's a link to the product I'm using, but I'm not sure if the guy is back in production yet or not because I think it's a side business of his: Waterproof Fuse Relay Box

    There are also similar products on eBay if he's not producing them right now: waterproof fuse relay box | eBay

    I passed you Saturday morning and was wondering where the unit come from and now I see you got it from Westside. I'm impatiently waiting for mine to come in at Newburgh. Good looking machine.

    Looking good! Be interesting to hear your ride thoughts when you get more time on it. Those lower doors look great

    I didn't. I think my first ride with it will be Memorial Day Weekend at Brimstone for WKE 2019.

    I'm keeping it clean while I run wiring and install accessories and then I'll cruise backroads for 100 miles to get the first service done for Brimstone.

    Video #1 is up on my YouTube channel for the introductory video. I’ll be adding several more in the coming weeks for various accessories.

    You get all the bugs worked out of the installation process and I will ride over at the end of the month and you can do it all over again LOL

    I continued the wiring marathon this past weekend and got the two-way radio, reverse pod lights, rock lights, SATV flip-out windshield, and wheels/tires added.

    I'm just shy of 73" wide with 5+2 offset wheels (undecided on how I'll like the width until I get trail time) and the 14" wheels do clear. I'm going to keep an eye on the wheels to see how well they clean out mud/rocks so I don't wind up with a "machined" wheel.

    They’re takeoffs from a RZR. 29x9x14 and 29x11x14.

    Did you find a connections for the reverse light? Do you have it so it comes on when you put it in reverse? What rock lights are you running?

    No, I ran power from up front using my waterproof fuse relay box. I’m going to have an entire video on my wiring setup probably this week, but here’s a link to it if you’re curious what it is:

    Waterproof Fuse Relay Box

    I have it on a dash switch so it’s a manual on/off setup.
