Just wanted to get some opinions from you guys thats been runnin these machines for a while. My friend just insists on me gettin some skid plates and a spine stiffner. I mostly ride at the local rides here in louisiana- mudd parks, mudd holes , ruts... etc. Hardly ever trail ride. Im runnin a 800r outlander xt with a pcv and hmf, 28" outlaws. Puttin 45 hp to the ground. Do i really need these upgrades or would it be worth it? I could see puttin the spine in if i had some extreme mods done to my engine, but i think it would be fine like it is. Any opinions would be great!!
