Anybody have any suggestions on Tailgate options? I hate the idea of having to pay $200 bucks for a plastic, non-folding, tailgate!

I have the SuperATV ordered. It doesn't open as is, but I will figure out how to make that happen once I get it. I need at least a section of it to open in order to get the dogs in and out. I designed the rack for my General, so I'm betting I can do something with this. :unsure:

I like it. The plastic kawi. models look like they cover the 2 back tie downs. I want to be able to access them. leaning towards the super atv also.

I have the Kawasaki one and it doesnt cover the tie downs at all. I think I’m going to upgrade to the one with the storage door.

Got one ordered and on it's way as of last Friday. It will make extended trips a lot easier to load for. Gaming ways to mount Rotopax cans on it.

I have the plastic tailgate. I actually got it for $140 because the Kawasaki brochure had a typo on it. I’m sure there are still some out there. Dealer honored. The only complaint was the hardware kit. Super poor design and quality. Otherwise it looks super nice.

We went that route too. Couldn't get the threaded rods to catch without doing some mods. Rod retainer circlips fell off pretty much immediately. Its not a bad unit looks wise. From a functionality standpoint it is not really doing it for me. Taking the loss and doing the Tusk extender.

Yep for me it was the adaptor bolts. The design was flawed making them to easily snap. Kawi sent me a set free of charge. New design is much better. The clips I didn’t bother installing.

I have the KRX box and mine is fine. Maybe they addressed design flaws, reading about them here. I’ve taken mine off and back on twice.

What did they change? I have the trunk, and snapped one of those stupid bolts very easily, so I came up with a work around. Just curious how they made it better.
So the adaptor bolt is now solid all the way through. More “heavy duty” so to speak. Mine were hollow. It didn’t take much torque to snap them.

I was holding my breath when I installed mine as I had read about the problem. LOL, they will snap off when I go to install the Tusk replacement.
