[0:00] What’s up, guys? Are you looking for a little bit more protection on your Polaris RZR XP 1000 or XP Turbo? SuperATV has you covered with our Low Profile Fender Flares. Today we’re going to show you how to install them.
The first thing we’ll do is remove the push pin from the bottom of the factory fender flare.
Next, we’ll grab the Low Profile Fender Flare and line it up with the factory flare at the bottom. Let it sit there, then we’re going to grab one of our M6 x 30 mm screws, our chamfered washer, our big flat washer, and our Nyloc nut. Install the chamfered washer to the screw and slide it through the factory hole.
On the back side, we’re going to slide our flat washer on and then start our nut.
[1:43] Right here, you’ll see this little panel. This is part of the SuperATV Full Skid Plate. All we did was remove the inner-most Allen and then loosen this outer-most one. That lets us reach down and get to the hardware.
If you have a SuperATV skid plate, you’ll have to do the same. If not, you won’t have to worry about it.
[2:03] So what I want to do is make sure my fender flare stays up against these tabs as tightly as possible. Then we’ll lay it up here on the factory fender flare. Make sure the corner of the Low Profile Fender Flare is lined up with the factory fender flare on this corner—so it should look just like that.
Now what we’ll do is go through and drill all these holes to a quarter inch. We’ll get a quarter inch drill bit and make these holes, then we’ll install our braces.
Once we have these corners lined up, we’ll take our drill bit and go right through the center of where these holes are.
[2:56] Once our holes are drilled, we’ll take our brace plate B, which is the smaller of the two. Install two of the clips—they pop right in very easily.
Next, take a M6 x 30s with a chamfered washer. Slide the brace plate up into the fender until it lines up. I like to slide one screw in the hole in the Low Profile Fender Flare. You just have to feel around until you line it up with the clip.
Then do the same thing with these two holes, by lining them up.
[3:55] Now take our other brace plate and two of those same screws and slide it into position. Once everything is started, get the flare where you want it and then snug up all of the hardware.
Down here, you’ll need a 10 mm wrench for the nut. We’re going to take our Phillips head screw with a fender washer and install it to this last hole on the Low Profile Fender Flare. Just thread it right in.
If you want, you can drill a small hole just to start it. Make sure you get it good and tight, then go back through and double check all of your hardware.
[5:06] Now we’re going to move on to the rear. We’re working on the back plate on the passenger side.
The back plate conforms to the factory fender flare on the rear. Line this up as best as you can and look it over to make sure it’s fitting tight. Once it’s lined up, go ahead and drill your quarter inch hole. Then keep it held in position, exactly where you just drilled.
Take a drill bit, or something of that nature, and hold it in place. That way it doesn’t shift on you. I like to do the front one and then come back to this one so we can adjust a little bit if needed.
We’ll line it up where we want it and drill another hole right here.
[6:16] Go ahead and drop a Phillips screwdriver in there. Now we’re free to go ahead and drill the rest of our holes because we know it’s not going to move. So we’ll do this one here, then come back to the rear.
Now we’re going to drop our hardware down through the holes that we previously drilled. We’ll only do these two holes right here.
Next, get the back plate that we used to drill the holes with two of the spacers. We’ll use the longer of the two Allens in the kit. You should be able to push these through the back plate and maybe even thread them a little bit, so they go all the way through. That’ll hold them in place for you.
[7:45] As of right now, this is what you should have. Like I said, it’ll be held in place like this.
Now we’re going to grab our passenger side rear extender. Slide it up into position and line it up with the two screws we just installed. We’re gonna use one of our fender washers for each screw, and also one of our Nyloc nuts.
Slide the fender washer on and then slide the nut up into place, just like that.
[8:37] Now we’ll start back here with the rear-most hole. We’re going to grab the shorter of our two Allens and make sure our holes are lined up. We’re going to slide our hardware through the back plate and through the extender.
Like I said, you may have to thread them through. They should be tight. I’m going to take the impact and run it through. This makes it a little bit faster than on the bottom side.
Now we’re going to take a fender washer and a Nyloc nut. We’ll slide the fender washer onto the threads, and then the Nyloc nut. Do the same hardware procedure for this hole.
Line up one of the spacers with the hole and slide our hardware through. Then line the back plate up with the flare. Slide the fender washer on as well.
[10:09] Now we’re going to align the edge of the extender with the edge of the flare. It should look something along the lines of this right here. Once it’s held in place, drill a hole.
To make sure we’re still lined up, I’m going to put my hardware through. We’ll be using the shorter of the two Allens and then we’re going to use a fender washer and a Nyloc nut.
Now that it’s snug, we can come to this hole and drill right through.
[11:20] With that hole drilled out, we’ll slide our spacer in through the back side of the flare until it lines up with the holes. Take our M6 x 40 screw and slide it through the hole. Slide one of the fender washers on the threads. Then take the Nyloc nut and start it.
We’re going to tighten this hardware first and then work our way back.
Now that all of our hardware is installed and tightened, we’ll repeat the same exact steps for the driver’s side.
And that’s all there is to installing SuperATV’s Low Profile Fender Flares on this Polaris RZR XP Turbo! For more information on these or to pick up yours today, check out our website. Thanks for watching and we’ll catch you on the next one.
