Smile New to polaris, need brush guard help

Hi all
Scotshunter1 here from Louisville, ky. Got rid of my old arctic cat and got a new toy, 2013 sportsman 400se. I came across a front bumper/ brush #2876102-418 which is supposed to fit a 2013 sportsman 400ho. The info that came with it shows pictures of and older model set up. Has anyone installed one of these units if so I would appreciate any info about install before I lose all hair trying to install it. The new polaris beats the ac hands down and I am sure I will be asking help again in the future.
Many thanks
Scotshunter1

Typically, the Polaris bumpers install hassle free.

Does the "se" = "Southern Edition"? From the looks of it they would be the same as the standard 400, 500 & 800 mountings from 2011-2013. As i believe the only real difference being the tire diameter and rear racking.

Angry Front bumper/ brush rack for 2013 sportsman 400 se

Many thanks for replies
The instructions that come with rack shows radiator in lower position which must be on older models , they raised and tilted radiator on 2013 and the bolt holes on frame are different from instructions.the radiator plastic grille is in different position and does not come off as per diagram, it's one piece with frame for h/lights. The rack is excellent , I just wish it would fit , the company I got it from is polaris dealer and says pure polaris says it fits the 2013 400.
I am determined to fit this rack one way or the other lol. Hopefully someone may have some info. Had no problem with rear bumper only 4 bolts but this is a bear. I am waiting on email reply from polaris but I won't hold my breath.
Thanks guys

Are you having fitment problems installing that brush guard on your 400?
That doesn't sound too promising for me. I have the same one on order for my 2013 500 HO I recently bought...

Smile Brush guard fit problem

Hi MC2crazy
I just got back from polaris dealer and talked to their tech guy about fitting rack #2876102-418 . He has had this problem before, it will not fit 2013 models , they changed the radiator position so none of the fittings will work with it , during my installation attempts I scuffed it up pretty bad, threw it and banged it a few times lol. Luckily I managed to sell it to a guy with a 2010 model has the proper holes to fit it at a slight $loss. It will not in any way fit 2013 . I purchased model #2878669 rack and it took 15 mins to fit perfect slightly different configuration but guards radiator and light areas good, I wonder how many more people bought it because of dealers saying it fits 2013 model. Cancel your order and check out the new one I put on
Good luck
Scotshunter1

I'll have to call them to see if I can change the order. The price is the same as 2876102-418. That makes sense... part #2878669... the other parts I ordered are 2878670, 2878671 and 2878672. 70 is the rear bumper. 71 and 72 are the front and rear rack extenders. 69 would be right in the series.

I hate ordering large items like this online...
