Racer Tech is known across the UTV industry as the first company to design and produce truly RIGID mount bumpers. While every once else makes cheap bumpers that look cool, we build cool looking bumpers that actually WORK when you need them to do their job!

This RZR XP 1000 MX Bumper is no exception. When you look at the design and construction you’ll see there is no other bumper that compares to its modularity and complex, yet simple design. The bumper ships in two main pieces, the lower section which is all laser cut sheet metal and serves as a skid plate, and a tubular upper section. This makes for the best approach angle, best strength to weight ratio and extremely aggressive looks. The skid plate base rigidly ties in to the bottom of the chassis in several places and the upper section bolts to the base. The upper section is also tied structurally in to the main chassis with our optional rigid mount arms assuring an intact radiator in the event of a crash.

This bumper also comes with tabs mounted to the back side of the upper main tube. These tabs allow you to add our “Tab Bar Upgrade” at any time if you need to add a light bar or flag mount.

Additionally, The Racer Tech MX Front Bumper works with any winch mounted above the front differential in the standard location. It allows for a fairlead to be mounted to the skid base and gives proper alignment for cable movement. Our RZR XP 1000 Front Arm Brace / Winch Mount System is designed to work specifically well with this bumper.

This bumper is available with or without the optional Rigid Mount system. Without the Rigid Mount upgrade, this bumper is literally as strong or stronger than every other bumper on the market. It mounts in the exact same locations as our competitors but with a stronger design. You can add the Rigid system later if desired as well. When adding the Rigid Mount system to the MX bumper, clearancing will be needed in the removable grill section of the front fascia. This is simple with a cutting tool and we've designed the mount to go through a void in the mesh to make this job as simple as possible. Some aftermarket grill inserts may not work with our Rigid Mount system for this bumper or my require modification.

This is currently listed as a XP 1000 product but we have confirmed it DOES fit all 2015 RZR 900, 900 XC and 900 S.

Bumpers are in stock in bare and black right now.

Re: Racer Tech - NEW XP 1000 / 2015 RZR 900 Front Bumper!

Bummed.... just ordered the Baja front and rear bumper bundle as well as the A arm brace from racer tech. Wanted ever thing powder coated silver to match my voodoo blue xp 1k.
This morning I get a call from RT saying that the bumper bundle only comes in black. I was not given any other options but I assume the lady was implying that I would have to order everything individually to get the color I wanted. I also planned on getting the RT cage in silver as well once I recovered from the bumper purchase.

No where does it say on the RT site that the bundle price is only good for black powder coat. Ithe won't let you choose a color either though....

I also stated that I hade a friend from KY I recommended to RT who had already purchased their spring kit, a arms, a arm brace and soon a cage as well. I was thinking this would help my situation but made no difference. The lady was happy to cancel my order. She was very nice, just stoich about the situation.

We'll enough bitching over a 5% bundle discount. I guess I was expecting too much for being a previous customer and referring my friends. My usual experience had been the more you spend the more accommodating a business is. I will still buy RT products just disappointed.

I'm sorry you feel this way. We DO appreciate your business and referrals. Please understand, we very clearly state within the product listing that the bundles only come in black. This really has nothing to do with previous business or referrals but everything to do with the simple fact that we've previously disclosed this information to the consumer before their choice to purchase.

We have reasons why we do everything the way we do. In this case it's pretty simple. We offer bundle pricing as a service to our customers to reward higher dollar purchases with better pricing. To afford the loss of profit we have to do higher bulk of one color to save money on the finishing. Black is a universal color so that's what it is.

We've been doing bundles like this since they day they started a couple years ago. Everyone who's wanted custom colors has purchased the items individually. Thousands have done it and many have made previous purchases and referred friends.

Again, I'm sorry if you don't think it's fair. The harsh reality is we need to maintain our income to assure we'll be here many years from now still offering our customers the best products at fair prices. If we gave everything to everything to everyone based on what they assumed they deserved we would be long gone by now. ;) I really don't think this is greedy even though some might. To me it's just smart business.

Now we really don't have anything on the site for this since there hasn't been enough demand. But, since the bundle is already an "as-is" proposition, you might do better to talk to the sales rep about a "bundle" deal for a custom coated cage and bumpers at the same time. If we don't have a special package already made for what you're looking for that might mean we'd be inclined to work with you if you were able to step up your end a little bit. Since the cage would already be going in silver we could coat the other parts at the same time and save the extra trip and setup costs... They might be willing to give you the bundle price on the bumpers with a custom color then... Maybe wait to order the bumpers and order it all at once(?)

Thanks,

Re: Racer Tech - NEW XP 1000 / 2015 RZR 900 Front Bumper!

Thanks for the explanation. I did not see the note about the bundle only being offered in black. That's my fault.
It must not show the note on a mobile device. I still can't find it. Lol. I should be working not ordering parts while at work.No worries now I know.
Thanks

Edit: After looking within the product description for XP 1000 bumper bundle it does NOT clearly state that the bundles are black only. However it does not give an option to select a custom color either.

Lesson learned.... Read carefully and assume nothing.

You're right.. I'm sorry about that. I guess if you want it done right you need to do it yourself... I just went through the entire site and made sure all bundle pages had a note about this so it won't come up again.

Sorry again for the confusion and thanks for bringing this to our attention and being reasonable.

Imagine that! You actually admitted there was something wrong with your website and didn't delete the negative post.
Did you take down the old style install video yet?
Thanks for getting JT to step up, even though I still think it wasn't his fault.

Why did you change the upper mount arms? seems to me it was better the old way. JT agreed.
Believe it or not I get the "being reasonable" part.
I'll admit I started out wrong.

Re: Racer Tech - NEW XP 1000 / 2015 RZR 900 Front Bumper!

Are you really going to start with this dealer order mix up crap again?? I'll answer your technical questions but I think we've beat a dead horse enough here on your order. Thank you for admitting you could have handled it better in the first place.

The new style is stronger because it applies the energy of an impact more directly to to a stronger part of the chassis. The rigid arms aren't as far to the outside but it's just as strong w/o the bend in the arms like the old design had. Plus is allows us to use one mount for all style bumpers we sell now. The old setup used to only work for the Baja style.
