I ordered their Cobra Fang front bumper and their basic rear bumper for my 2015 sportsman SP. They sent them bare and I had Kreative Koatings out of Athens, Alabama powdercoat them to match the Orange accents. They look so awesome!! I highly recommend ATV Guru. I'll add a link to their site below. Now just to mount and wire the 10" single row light bar.

Those look amazing! How long was the wait?
Thank you! John was very quick to get everything to me. The wait was about 10-12 days I believe. Both the front and rear bumpers came in quickly!!

I think every bike mounts a little differently. My 2014 570 does mount to the bottem holes on the front for a total of 6 mounting points. To be honest I could do without those just because after my fiasco with the Vikiing Branded bumpers I wound up with one of them stripped and it is beyond a b*tch to get a nut behind there!

Ah i see. For the one i recently made i could not figure how to get a nut in the bottom. I ended up tapping those little round pieces of tube and that worked out well

Put on my ATV Guru brush guards last week. They are a work of art. Got lots of compliments at the club ride last weekend.

Yea they are a great company. Mine took a little longer to arrive, probably 4-5 weeks. But fit great. He did weld a couple tabs for my light bar, but were not in the spot I was expecting, and were not the correct width. But, sometimes stuff can get lost in communication. It took maybe 10 mins to modify light mount to work, no problem.

John from ATV-GURU was Awesome to work with. I was originally quoted 3-4 weeks (Maybe Sooner) to ship but he got held up on parts for the front brush guards so 3-4 weeks became 5, then 6 and then finally 7 weeks before it shipped.

Yes - I waited 7 weeks and 3 days to get my ATV-GURU Brush Guards (Front and Rear) for both my 2017 Sportsman 450 H.O. and 2017 Sportsman 570 EPS. Brush Guards fits Perfectly and Super Easy to Install.

Think of it this way - I know some people here will never wait 7 weeks for an item and would just buy something else - say the Polaris OEM Brush Guards for convenience. But let's look at the BIG Picture here. Say 3-6 months from now when you're out riding and another bike pulls up next to you with the ATV-GURU Brush Guards. You look at his and then look at yours and say to yourself - Why did i buy the Polaris OEM Brush Guards again? Just Saying!!

I didn't know Atv Guru was still making bumpers. Did you guys talk about a design or is there only the one option?

ATV-GURU all the way. They are a solid stout piece. Had mine for 4yrs and they still look great despite some fender benders :devil!

He has several options, some with grill covers, some with extra horizontal bars, some open design, etc...

These things are Tough and made to fit and looks Awesome.

Plus the AUXBEAM 12" LED Light Bar fits perfectly to give a nice recess look, so it won't get damage in a hit.

I would have no problem waiting 7 weeks for the guru.well worth the wait.But out of the 5 that I have ordered Iv never had to wait more then 2 weeks.And besides the hooks and led brackets I have the rear width shortened up by 1.5" from each side. The last set I got fedex lost the rear and sent it back to john. I was leaving for H&M in 2 days and he shipped them there for me. Good guy,good service,good bumpers.

When I ordered mine - I sent an email asking for a change in the design and he was happy to do it. Highly recommend them - very good guards.

I've had mine on for nearly 2 years and I still get compliments from friends! I've got a buddy with a 2017 sportsman 850 that's waiting for John to finish up the design for those. I'm ready to get them mounted on his quad!!!
