Well...not exactly. I stood my 1000 straight up and drug the rear of the bike for about 10ft. Broke the right hand aluminum bracket and the grab bar was pushed up into the rear storage box and broke the handle. I went hard that day. :th_smiliebanana2:

It bolts onto the frame farther up near the gas tank. Would it be alright to tow someone behind atv for sledding without harming the frame or anything?

It can take a light hit straight in but will not handle much else.
It's pretty though.

I wouldn't tow with it. Right behind the rear diff, even stock, there's a spot to hook up a towstrap. Use that before the aluminum grab bar.

Here's the ball hitch I put on mine. I've had to tie myself to a tree with it several times to winch a quad out of a ravine or get one unstuck on tracks. It's the only place to tow from.:smilietwocents:

Bumper

In west virginia at Hatfields my quad is maybe 2 months old waiting in line for gas and I found out what it was for! Some guy whips into the station on brute Force and slams into the back of my atv.
I agree with others it dented from low speed impact of another quad.
Every time i look at it , it agggrivates me. lol
I will find something better to put back there sooner or later:aniwheeler6:

He didn't have insurance I take it? Lots of damage or just a little. I woulda filed a report and made him pay for a new one. Maybe he woulda got a fine too.

Never tow people with rope, chain, or straps.
A ridgid tow bar is required. Anything less is a breach of common sense everywhere and the law most places.
