Brought my new Talon X2 LV home on Friday. Haven't had the chance to take it out yet since we have to travel miles of road to get to a trail and our roads are covered with road salt... not something I want to subject my new ride to. The lake I'm on will be safe shortly, so I can get out on it in a week or two. In the meantime, I have been going over the machine and noticed the front compartment under the front hood, and around the engine in the rear are very open to the wheels/tires. Seems like there should be more covers or panels to prevent mud from spraying up into these areas. Do you guys do anything to help with this, or are there companies that make something for this?
Thanks

I installed MudBusters. The ones I installed are for an "R" model even though I have an "X" LV. I did have to cut around the rear LV solenoids so the plastic didn't hit them. The reason I went with the "R" instead of the "X" is they are larger and give more coverage.

There is another brand out there also. I believe they are called RocksBloks. I'm sure someone else will chime in. Just my 2cents.

Thanks for your help and for the pics. Nice machines.
What have you done with the holes in the floor boards? My Yamy had rubber plugs in them.

Mud Busters makes a heavy duty plastic version of this as well for the rear fenders. Look up DEI heat kit for the cover that goes accross the firewall area, helps to block heat and comes with 2 pieces for the front and a stick on piece for the rear.

Awesome! Hey, was looking through your photos. 2 questions: What mirrors and mounts are you using? What fender flares do you have? They look much better than the RokBlokz. More coverage.

Hi, I also used the MudBuster fender flares and mudguards. I have an X and went with the smaller X fender flares because I ride narrow trails in AZ.

I left the holes in the floor boards to help with drainage when the machine is washed. I covered the holes under the seats with Flex tape (bought at Home Depot). Lastly, I covered the opening under the hood at the passenger side firewall with a light gauge rubber and push rivets.

Hope this helps!

Sorry no covers no mud buster or rocblocks to me it's a off road dirt sand mud or rocks can go anywhere it wants its going to anyways I just rinse it and use it mine is over a year old and it looks ok to me View attachment 3266 View attachment 3267
I doubt I'd be worried much either if I only rode in sand. Mud is that wet dirt stuff that sticks to everything. Nevermind...if I have to explain it....
