moose cv guards....grrrr

so i just got my moose cv guards that i got off ebay. i got them for $20 now i know why, these things flat out SUCK. they have ZERO protection. i am almost 100% sure that i installed them correctly because the bolt holes only lined up that way. i cant believe moose would even endorse this product
looks like im gonna have to weld on extensions to get REAL boot protection. im very disappointed.

Yeah, those don't look like they do much boot protecting.

no kiddin! when i look back at the ebay listing he's got them covered up so you cant see where they are cut down at a slope. and then he has a whole different set when he took a front on picture of them...no returns, imagine that, now im just gonna have to make lemonade out of a lemon

Those look like the ones for a drum brake machine,did you specify the later year disc brake ones when he sent you the email ?Mine aren't notched quite as much,and I still have my brake caliper protectors on that fill in the cutout area when the tires are straight ahead...Although at full cock they don't cover the boots as well as I'd like them to,they do give a lot more protection that the oem plastic ones did just covering the front only,and the oem ones were cut out the same amount as the new ones...I don't think it's possible to protect the boots at full cock as then when you turned the other way there would be mechanical interference problems with the calipers hitting the covers.....

Check to see if a welded on extension is going to stop you from a full cock turn...

I am going to put the stock plastic OEM guards back on the Rubi over the a arm skid plates I made for it..They work great,and cover the axles,and cvs as well as any after market will on the front...Plus I don't have to worry about bending them...

The Richochet a-arm guards I bought for both my quads were kinda low on the coverage also,,,they fit, and went on perfectly, but like yours left a little cv boot uncovered,,,I did like you on my old ride the 700, and modded the stock covers to go with the aluminum aftermarket ones. Shame they don't make them to fit the way their supposed to for the money you pay.
There's a money making thing for someone on here who has the means and know how on machining,,,make us all some good aftermarket skids that have great coverage, and clearance.

It would be almost impossible to completely cover the axles,and cv boots out to the brakes due to the fact that the front has to rotate,and you have to maintain clearances at the brake line areas,the suspension needs clearance to cycle from full extension,to full droop as well as have swing room for the knuckle assembly to rotate to full handlebar cock..the only way I can see to cover up the outer boots as well as the axles would be to make a 2nd cover that attaches to the rotating assembly and comes around on the outside of the a arm guard which means it will stick forward significantly when straight ahead,or turned towards the outside in order to clear the a arm guard at full cock..If you were to extend the cover up front,and closest to the ball joints,then when you turn hard,the cv boot could prolly rub against the cover on the inside..My factory plastic caliper mounted extensions actually have a forward pointing bend/lip made into them to clear the a arm guards,and cover pretty much as much is possible to cover without interference...
