Wanting to see if there are any homemade or custom bumpers you guys are running. I am a mechanic/welder and think I could do a light weight, strong, cool bumper push guard combo. I lack creativity and need some ideas on what works for everyone. Pics would be helpful. Not want to steal you ideas...Ok yes I am trying to steal your ideas but I will give you credit.

I built a jeep front rear set that would hold enough air to fill 1 35" tire to 10 psi.

Do a search on the web for "Yamaha Kodak Bull Bumper" and you will get some ideas of what Yamaha and others offer. They might give you some ideas.

Also look at Rival bumpers. If you're in Canada, royal distributing has best price on them. Very similar to the bison bumpers.
Personally, my 2 choices for bumpers for these bikes

I looked at a couple of bumpers but they looked like they would interfere with my snow plow that I have with the fount mount so I didn't peruse them any further

I put the Yamaha Fr & Rr bumpers on my '20. Didn't want anything too heavy or that reduced approach/depart angles, or were wider than OE as I ride tight trails. For the money these aren't too bad and fit is pretty nice. Took maybe 15 min. to install the pair which was nice as well.
