has anybody ever seen this? its a grab bar with wheels made into it so when you go all the way back you have wheels that roll instead of grinding your bar. Its a custom fabricated thing. I saw a video on i think youtube of a few 4 wheelers doin some wheelies and stunting and one was a raptor and he had a homemade grab bar with like roller blade wheels i think made it to it so he could roll in the 12 o clock position. i think this would be pretty cool so i want to try i just dont know where to start with the fabing up the grab bar to house the wheels. any ideas? or if you know where that video is give me the link. you would know if you saw it. its a really long one and he shows his grab bar.

Get some poster board and your imagination to build a mock up and then build it out of metal like i did.

I don't think this design is really affective. Its a good idea and it probably safe compared to the stock grab bar. But it looks very heavy and bulky also the wheels are rubbing the sides so they won't spin freely and if you were riding on the wheels it will probably slow you down. you would have to put spacers on the bolt to keep the wheels away from the brackets. With some expencive lighter metal, better wheels and bearings, and some spacers I think it would work good.

If he has that huge bar... how did he smash the tail light out?

I made one its simple and it works great. I made it originally so i wouldn't grind my exhaust off.

I got a buddy who made one. He needs to make it longer though cause his 660 Raptor would bog out due to no fuel in floats. When he puts it on the grab bar its straight up

i just lengthened my stock bar and put a 3/8" bar where the bar hits the ground

I am wanting to make something similar to this but put a small tire in the middle so I could also put this to use in the dirt. Wonder if this is possible??? If any of you creative people with the right tools would like to make me something like this for a raptor 700 that would mount up in replace of the stock grab bar, lets discuss! I dont have the tools needed to make this or I would. I would pay someone to do this for me!

Thanks
