ANyone know of such a product? I dont want the huge $$ Kawa fenders. But I have seen flaps on RZR's so wondering if there is one out? Man these things will absolutely drench ya. I took my door windows off and holy batman! A front 2" mudflap would be a help. Also has anyone upgraded to bigger tires yet? Like a 33"-35"? I plan to someday but I dont like the selections currently. I like the Carnivores, wish they made a 34"...

I got the Kawi fenders. Expensive but do a great job. I have not seen any other offerings.i have not come across any 33,35 tires yet. I purchased a kawi spare tire / wheel but still on backorder. I wanted the matching wheel. It was cheaper to buy the assembly. I also plan to go 35's In future

I got the Kawi flaps on my KRX. Expensive, but they do really well when added to the flared fenders.

AJ's has a great fender flare setup. Every bit as good as the Kawasaki offering, but at a fraction of the price. I put just the fronts on mine and they are outstanding. They are also very easy to install. No tearing the doors apart just to get to one screw...

I like those AJ flaps. Exactly what I was after. I will check em out. 1 question, will they hold up when I rub banks and trees? Happens often. Lol. Things are tight up here in PNW!

I have no idea. They are held on with the plastic rivets and 4 small screws in each. Other than the screws, which you really could do without, I would guess they would likely pop off, just like any other plastics held on with those plastic rivets. I'm thinking about extending lower on the bottom with some regular mud flap material just to keep a little more mud off, particularly up under the door handle. I've found that mud really likes to pack up in there. I think another 2-3" of mud flap might cure that.

Just installed JBS performance. Highly recommend for just $79. All pushpin mounting, so easy to remove when not needed

The kawi fender flares look best, all the others look like you just bolt on a piece of conveyor belt.

Once you install factory flares, there are also small mud flaps that mount on the bottom, but at $50 a pair from the factory that seems excessive.

I can see a DIY mud flap, but not the fender flare.

Ive' been looking and agree, the Kawasaki flares look like they belong, the others I've seen look like something someone made in their garage, IMO. I think I'll spring for factory.

Guess it's all personal preference. I don't like the looks of the OEM flares at all, not to mention that they cost about $300 more for a complete set, ($500) and it doesn't look like they provide quite as much protection. I bought just the fronts for mine and cost just over $100.
I have also put my AJ's flares up against a rock or two, and they just fold over, then pop right back when you get away from the rock. Can't verify, but I don't think the OEM's would react the same way.
It's good to have choices. (y)

They do look pretty good, just not $500.00+ good. I'd put anyone's conveyor belts up against tho$e $$$$$ flippers. And I get removable mud flaps included!😜

Most photos are of the front flares, does anyone have a photo of rear flares (AJs or Kawasaki)? Are the rear flares/flaps not needed?

We don't have much mud here in Colorado, so I only purchased the fronts from AJ's. They give me all the mud/splash protection I need.

I am on the other side of the Rockies in Utah. We don't get alot of water either, but lots of runoff and/or water crossing trails. It makes for either slow going until the tires are dry, or enough mud flinging to make cleanup a real chore.

I will be spending 4 days on the trails in Moab, starting Saturday. I will give you a first hand, Utah update on how they work out there. Guessing it will be the same as over here on the front range. :LOL:
Don't know if you saw my picture above, so I will post it here again. I had just installed AJ's flares, and wanted to test them out on some muddy farmland access roads. We hit some mud holes fast, others slow. Some were really soupy, others just wet, sticky clay. The pictures speak for themselves on how well they work. I hate cleaning up mud as much as the next guy, and avoid it when possible, so I am extremely happy with how they worked. There was practically no mud inside the cab, and I was clean. Can't expect much more than that.
