They make a huge difference in the woods, branches and limbs slide right by instead of whipping you in the face or arm. I emailed Vet Nets to ask about window nets for the KRX. Kirk replied back:

"Hi Paul-
I normally stick to 4 seat machines- just seems to be more interest and since I stock what I sell I make a bunch up at one time to keep them affordable- I just don’t want a bunch sitting around for a year- however you’re the second person to ask in 2 days- we can easily do them- I’ll put out a feeler post and if we get any interest I’ll see about making 20 sets or so and see how it goes- appreciate the feedback."

I will make my own if this doesn't work out, but I'd rather get custom nets. If any of you are interested in a set, please send Kirk an email at [email protected] or call 817-938-6109

PRP has them on their website, $149.00 a pair.

Those (PRP) are out of stock and have huge gaps in the front. I could make nets that cover better than that. That's where the branches enter! Thanks for the link, I was not aware of it.

How do they do in the briars? I haven't tried them but it seems they would have a good chance at catching a broken limb and aiming it at you.

They excel in the briars. The local 4-wheeler trails are overgrown with blackberries. This is why I tried them and now swear by them. As you go by the briars just transfer down the machine, over the nets, and never intrude into the cockpit. When you don't want the nets I just roll them up and snap them up at the top. Ditto for transport on the trailer. Honestly - from me to you - I'll never not have nets. There's no downside. If you don't want to be bothered they roll up top.

I've never hit a big enough limb to be a problem. Usually if its that big, you know its that big. This takes care of everything else. I've run mine over a year now. East coast tight woods trails lots of briers and branches.

[All experience on the Wolverine X2 since August, 2019. Don't have nets for the KRX yet. Different shaped machines.]

Following after glancing at a faint scar in the palm of my left hand from a creosote bush stick caused by the subconscious reflex of trying to stop roll over. I was very lucky that day. A clean fitting set of nets would be nice insurance to have.

I came from a Honda Talon x4 and they come stock with the nets. i, at first, thought it was a cheesy thing to have, but i can assure that they were the best thing that machine came with. ive been looking for some for the KRX, but have only found the PRP ones which seem to be out of stock. It will definitely be an investment once i can find some.
