Quick Clean Boot Guards
If you are tired (like we are) of
getting dirty just to clean your CV boot guards then Xtreme Products has
the product for you. These boot guards are hinged in the front to allow
you more access to the axles. All you have to do is turn your wheel,
loosen one bolt, and the plate drops down allowing you to clean..
We called Joe at Xtreme Products get a set for our Project
Grizzly 660. A couple days later and the plates were at our door. The
kit came with instructions, hardware, and some cool stickers to put on

rear rack. You will need help for this. If you are not able to pick the
bike up you can do it all with the bike on all four tires. When we
picked the bike up we noticed that the stock boot guards was already
broken and in need of being replaced. With a few turns of the wrench the
stockers was off.
The new guards on our Grizz are held on by 2 u-bolts per side. With the
plates in place and the bolts loose we could check our fitment. To do
this turn the wheels all the way from the left to the right watching to
make sure nothing rubbed the plates. With the plates lined up the bolts
You can see the difference. The plastic guards just did not have the
protection. Now we can feel better riding knowing that we have greatly
reduced the risk of a tore boot. Plus when we come back from a deep mud
ride clean up will be a breeze. Below you can see the before and after
HOW IT WORKS...
a ride all you have to do is loosen the front bolt. With the bolt
removed the front plate will lower giving you access to clean and easily
check your boots. Once done you lift the plate back up and reinstall the
