Super ATV rear bumper BIG issue

Went to install a new super atv rear bumper on my 2017 XP 1000 and ran into a major issue.

I removed the radius bolts and mounting plate. Cut the heat shield and drilled the frame just like instructions said.

Then went to install lower bumper and found that the supplied bolts M10's are smaller diameter than what the stock radius arm bolts are. My stock bolts won't fit thru the bumper holes or the spacers. Of course the supplied M10s have to much slop in the radius are sleeves.

My suspicion is super atv doesn't know the radius arms on the reflex blue 2017.5 are the same size as Click image for larger version

I really don't want to drill the bumper, the spacers and go find longer stock diameter bolts.

Or am I missing something?? Can bolts that don't fill the sleeves be used?? Doesn't seem right.

Pic shows my stock diameter bolt not fitting thru bumper. Other pic shows diameter of largest supplied bolt and slop in sleeve.

Re: Super ATV rear bumper BIG issue

I think they just aren't aware the bolts have been upgraded to M12 on the newer machines. I think you're limited to either drilling the holes out in the bumper plate, or finding/fabricating a sleeve for the M10s they sent you.

I just drilled out my bumper to fit the new bigger 12mm hole bolts. Good luck holding the nuts on the inside now that they are bigger too. I gave up and still have not mounted my rear bumper on my 2017 XP Turbo

Re: Super ATV rear bumper BIG issue

Thanks all. Confirmed my suspicion. Guess I'll drill the parts out and find the longer M12 bolts. I bolted it back up stock to ride this weekend and yeah it was a pita to tight those back up. Just a really frustrating waste of 4 hours. Super atv should be much better than that!

Re: Super ATV rear bumper BIG issue

Hold backup on what nuts? I welded these 1" long threaded inserts in and don't have to fight that battle anymore.

That's what Polaris should have done in the first place. Where did you get those?

HESS Motorsports. They offer both the M10 & M12. The 10s cost about $75 after shipping, but well worth it
