Arctic Cat Wildcat Fender Flares
Anyone know of an aftermarket set of mudflaps or fender extensions?
Eatin RzR's, Shittin Commander's, and now humiliating Maverick's
well if sidebysidesports has fender flares good luck finding them on their web page
I'd upload pix but the attachment upload tool says I'm exceeding my quota by 2.69 megabytes. Makes no sence cuz the top line of the upload mgr says "2.61 MB of 7.8 KB Used". And, I see no method of deleting my previously up loaded pix. WTF?
Can someone splain this for me?
Google plastic fenders. You will find all shapes and sizes.

BUMMER for Those Who Decided
It Was Time To
Ok, I'm kinda slow at figuring out the drill but had to sign up for the premium memebership to add more pix.
Here's my little floppy mud flaps made of of real thin nylon (.040). Got about 2 hours and $10.00 in the deal. Those little screws with the build in washers and drill points on the tip sure make it easy to mount things. (Just screwed to the innermost point on the stock fenders)
If these don't do the job of reducing the mud in the cockpit I guess I'm gonna have to put a tarp across the cockpit with only my head stickin out
What have you done to the lower link bars?
Back when I had the small diameter stock tires the links got bent banging on rocks. I slit some PVC tubing and put it on the bars...then cut a piece of steel tubing in half (legthwise) and mounted it on the down/forward side over the PVC using hose clamps.
The idea is to add a little strength and padding to be able to take a hit without putting a crease or dimple in the link. I could still get bent but maybe it'll take a lot bigger hit to do so.
The plan had been to go to "U" shaped links to get them up and out of the way but with the 33 inch tires the ground clearance is so good the problem no longer exists.
Going to large diameter tires has made an entirely different machine out of the WC. The camera angle in this movie link does not begin to show the gnarlyness of this thing call SOB hill at 10,000 feet but 5 jeeps all had to winch up. With the big tires the Cat takes it like a Sunday drive at about 1/8 throttle...uhhh oh yeah it, was just last Sunday.
Here are some fenders (1st aftermarket I believe) that are listed on ebay.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Artic-Cat-WILDCAT-1000-Extreme-Fender-Flare-Extenders-MudBusters-/130712459822?hash=item1e6f11da2e&item=130712459822 &pt=Motors_ATV_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr
Someone really needs to make a front fender somewhat like the Can-AM Spyder has on it. I'll have to chalk them up as functional vs. good looking flairs.
OK, I just bought them... The guy Dave who makes them is cool and props to MudBusters to be the 1st to bring fenders to market! They even beat Arctic Cat getting fenders to market!
Just don't laugh at my fenders and I won't laugh about you being muddy.
Those mud busters are really nice, but it seems the fronts should extend forward and down a lot more. Half my mud comes in from what gets thrown forward and at speed I drive into the the airborne spooge.
I'll be looking for a report on how well they work for you.
I hear you on the not coming forward far enough... But I believe everyone is going to run into this problem making fenders (that don't look totally ridiculous) to stop that mud. The problem is that the front of the front fender sits behind the rear of the front tire....
This is where the CanAm Spyder style fenders could come into play.
I know what you're talking about... the 50 MPH mud chunk you see in front of you go from 20',10', then 5', then splat on your goggles.
I'll report back with the details. However, I can tell you I'm already happy with the purchase as my wife is way more happy to get them installed than I am. She doesn't dig the mud as much of the rest of us crazies here in the forums!
