These are on my girlfriends 500, but i cant find on the internet what there for. Must be for some kind of mounting system but what? Anyone know what gets mounted on these?

That's part of the Polaris Lock & Ride system for attaching accessories such as storage boxes, backrests, gun scabbards, etc.

Thats what i thought too, but all the accessories i can find that are lock and ride fit in the holes but i cant find any that have the railings like that.

Did you buy that used? The rails look like they were added on . Perhaps something slid on them from the side and locked on. I would remove them the holes should accomadate the lock and ride systems. Intreasting ....

No need to remove them...the Lock & Ride stuff should work. I have the same system on both of my '06 SP500's and I have a Lock & Ride rear box that mounts just fine.

My 07 and 08 have them also, from factory. Never gave it a second thought. They don't interfere with mounting anything.

That's just a stock Polaris rack. There's nothing special or mysterious about it. For several years they ALL were made that way.
