Did some upgrades

So I added a Kolpin Matrix rear rack bag, IPT Mud Lite XTR's 26x11x12 on the rear 26x9x12 on the front. I mounted them on ITP SS212's. I also added the fender flares. Next is a winch and then I don't know.

Looks good! From the rear view those tires look menacing. You also definitely needed those fender flares. What's the width in the rear now?
I don't know if you've ridden it yet but I'm interested in your opinion on how they feel.

It is 49" across the back, I have not had a chance to run the new tires yet. I just put them on this evening, but I'm hopeing to get it on the trail this weekend. I'll report back after the first ride for sure.

Fender flares look great! Where did you purchase them? Think they’d look good on the blue special edition version?

I’ve heard mixed reviews on the that bag. How are you liking it? Zippers holding up?

I ordered them directly from a Yamaha. Right off the website

It’s junk I would not recommend it. Very flimsy material and not well built at all.

From what I've seen, the cargo bags seem like they're hard to clean. I'm in the market for a cargo box and I think the Yamaha rear box is going to be the one.
