Looks like I'll be selling this thing after trapping season. Im tired of coming home everyday soaking wet and covered in mud/water spray from the front tires. I will Def say that this is nothing less than pitiful engineering on Hondas part. With the amount of R&D put into a project like this you would think that this would be something that would be addressed. I can remember when their 4-wheelers had the same problem, then the next year Honda added the stock flares to correct the issue. I sure hope for Hondas sake that they do the same with this unit. I have Rangers and Rhinos both at the deer camp and neither have this issue with stock tires. I love the Pioneer, but there are other bikes out there that perform equally as well that dont have this issue. Ive searched high and low for flares that will fit/bolt on, and toyed with making my own. The bottom line is that we shouldnt have to "rig" something up to keep from having the cab filled with overspray. I am pushing 600 miles on this unit since November and I have driven it through all of the same mud and crud that I experience each year deer hunting and trapping, but this is the only SxS that Ive owned that has this problem. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
