I see so many choices for A arm guards for my 2019 P700.
Can anyone recommend one brand over another?
Light trail rider, prefer aluminum.

I had the Honda OEM guards and they were pretty darn tough! Here’s one I bent going over some rocks at Windrock, a little hammer action and it was good to go again.

Keep in mind, there have been documented issues with A-arm guards causing braking issue.
I remember that. Wasnt it the guard was hitting the brake at full turn basically pushing the cylinder in so you had to pump the brakes to get it back primed.

Yes, Honda has mentioned it several times in service information. I've seen it on Pioneers and ATVs.

Can anyone point me to where I can purchase the OEM Arm guards?
Like these. Are they only sold through the dealership?
My pioneer did not include the outer CV boot guard as pictured.
I have seen the outer CV guard on the 2020 model. Any chance the dealer ship just didn't install
Them on my 2019?
I'd like to get the CV boots protected ASAP. Lots of brush and sticks where I ride.

I found the Honda accessory catalog on line.
It has the OEM a arm guard listed. I'll use that PN.
One thing that caught my attention- the catalog says A arm guards come standard on the deluxe model. Look at the very bottom at the * asterisk symbol
. It signifies that accessory comes standard on the deluxe model.
Mine did not. Any deluxe owners take delivery with them installed?

I looked again your shock springs were black so it would be the base model deluxe came with the guard and powder coat colored springs

Here is my 2019 700-2 deluxe still on the dealership floor.
Springs are silver colored. There is another one exactly like it in the pic also.
Neither one has A arm guards.
Here is another 2019 deluxe without them. Either the dealership isn't installing them or the 2019 deluxe did not include them. Inquiring minds want to know...
