Hey Guys! I learn a lot from you forum. I have a 2011 Polaris 850 XP EPS Touring but I am having a hard time finding a front bumper for this ride. I ordered a Front Bumper from Moose and they said it would fit my ride but the two front bolts on the grill are to close together for the mount. My two mounting holes are 9.750" between centers. I like the Moose design and would like similar if possible.

Thank you all for the welcome. I feel like this is the second best thing I have done since I started quadding 2 years ago. First buying a Polaris then joining this forum.

Thank you Bruce. I haven't been into quadding that long, 2 years, so I will probably learn a lot in this forum. Have a great week.

I'm not sure that I understand your dilemma. I just installed a Moose guard on my XP (non touring) and you do not use any of the grill bolts to mount it. Well, let me say not any of the ones that you could get a center to center measurement on. You do use the two in the bottom that hold the "pan" but they are both in the same axis.

There should have been a couple of brackets supplied in the box with the bumper. You have to remove your front plastics, enlarge the existing holes in the aluminum support in front of your radiator and mount one of the supplied brackets to it. The bumper then mounts to that bracket through two of the triangular shaped holes in the grill.

Thanks Tomahawk for your reply. I understand your post on mounting a Moose front bumper. My center to center holes on the bumper are about 1" on each side narrower so if what you are saying to narrow the mount holes I would probably just have to drill new holes on my quad if there is room to do it. I also thought I would take it in to a weld shop and have them cut the two long pipes and mount them in the right place. I just hate it when they say it will fit my machine then I have to redo their product. And you are right about the bottom mount it will work as built. Problem now is I talked to the dealer who sells them and sent them pictures and they asked for me to return them and I have shipped them back. They paid for the shipping both ways. I have got to take care of this as quadding season is right around the corner. Temperature here in Phoenix has been 110-114. To hot for me to go out. It has been pretty dry until the last two weeks. The monsoon season which started in June has just hit and hard.

Welcome to the Forum. I am sure you will find as much help as I have. Group is real friendly and informative.
