hydro dipping the front and rear fenders is very expensive..I looked into it....plus then you have the other body parts...

True, but it's also more durable and you've got better graphic's options. Kinda one of those things, do it once, or do it every couple of years and end up paying more. it's on you.

To answer your question.... the 2011-2013's (2012's fr sure) should have the same body plastics!!

holy crap !!! it's been nine weeks and i get four responses today. Thanks to all for the input. It's sitting in the garage, still wearing it's playdough soft green plastic. Thinking about the mossy oak graphic kit but still not sure what to do with it. Thanks again.....Ray......

Hydro Dip it dude. By the time you buy the vinyl you are already 2/3's the way there in price. Plus if you buy new fenders from polaris you are just buying fluid dipped stock fenders.

Keep us posted if you get it. I've got a red 12 and was looking at this as well.

i am wondering how long the vinyl grafics will last...they look nice in Pic....and they are 20 mil thick..and use 3M adhesive...would just suc if they started to lift..but then again I have a 02 sport that still has the warning labels an other decals on it..an wear like iron...I would love to get the kit an go camo...I hunt alot and the camo would be nice..its Sage green now..so its low visibilty in woods..but camo would be better....

DO IT! Only downfall I had with my last atv being camo was it being truly camo'd in the woods. I lost it a couple times :)

2011 has a substantially different front plastic design as 12+. Has to do with a built in front storage on 12+ and a removable front storage on 11 only.
