Cool thanks. I think they are the same as my other 2 sets just rebranded for tusk. You can find them on Amazon for 30-40 each
They work good for about a year or so and then start to not sinch tight any longer with tension at the lap area.

Well that’s disappointing if so, I paid double that. They popped us as a “something you might like” when ordering the (broken) rear window.

I also managed to get the 10-80 shift gate installed tonight. Took a 10min job and turned it into a hour plus trying to do the jeep shift boot mod. The screws just weren’t long enough for the new shift plate and the rubber boot Anyone know what thread pitch they are? I assumed standard 6mm but they didn’t want to thread.

I kept the factory bolts because they were just long enough for the shifter plate.
Honda parts diagram shows 6x14 bolt, probably 1.25 or 1.5 pitch. They don't list the pitch. Take one to Lowe's and match it.

After searching for a P520 for a few weeks without any luck. I stumbled upon a 2023 Talon 1000R live valve. Wasn't really looking for one but wanted a 2nd machine since most of our rides are just the family and it can be a long walk out some places. I wont claim it was a steal by any means but It was marked down enough to convince me. However since I wasn't looking for a Talon, I'm not even sure where to start having done zero research into the "must haves". I assume skid plates, vent lines, are pretty high on the list. Is the intake pre-filter still needed with the new ones?

And for anyone wondering, it will "JUST" fit on a 7x10 trailer, lol

Took it out for its maiden trip to Ocala National Forest. Rode ~52 miles. Really liked the push button I-4wd. Super simple, push the button and forget about it.

Not sure we moved fast enough to take advantage of the live valve suspension. The washboard areas were still pretty rough until you hit 25 or so. For anyone whose been to Ocala, 25 is pretty sketchy in most of area.

We kept it in low all day and this thing wants to go! It is super easy to do 20-30mph if your not careful. Took turns driving with the wife and she scares the hell out of me, lol

Time to take it down to the track at Motor Enclave
