Anyone else a little bothered buy how then and flimsy our factory plastics are, or the amount of crappy plastic clip there are hold in them in place?!!

I have already got tons of scrapes a lots of cracks, and broken panels, and the cost to replace back with stock then and flimsy is ridiculous!!! I hat to say it but my friends RzR has held up a lot better than mine and we always go out together riding. He has some deep scrathes but nothing is cracked and broken like mine.

I do not know if the aftermarket are better and cheaper, but it looks lik i will be doing a Exso cage and aluminum panels!!

First thing I noticed was how easy to scratch and cheap the plastics was. Mine is scratched from one end to the other

Dealer scratched mine up on assembly but no broken plastic.
I don't care I bought it to have fun and scratches will happen
Nothing stays new forever

Yea the plastics are crap on these things. I have mine pulled off and getting painted with automotive paint to try and help with the scratch's. Also had to replace 2 pieces of plastic already also.

Are the plastics on the Mav a cheaper grade than what comes on the Commander?

seems like it to me hell my friend sat on the front of it and you could see them denim jeans marks!!! I know mine will get scratched up a lot but dagum I have had a lot of other atvs and nothing is like these plastics!!! My old 250R has be flipped and rode through the stuff for 20+ year and it fairs a hell of a lot better than what the plastic of the maverick are in only a week!!

My front right small panel that says Maverick on flew off in the wind during transportation. I was pissed. I understand that plastic will scratch and I'm fine with that, but it shouldn't crack until it's been in the sun for a long time.

Agreed scratching faster than any of my quads ever did and of course i took the damn decal off the rear fender the first time i pressure washed the mud off it.

The black doesn't help anything with scratches. Every little swish shows up like a sore thumb. Swore I'd never have another black ATV after by 07' Raptor but it just looks so great while its wet or clean. Just hard to keep it that way.

Well lets see hear, 09 rzr s, 11 rzr xp, 02 ktm 125, 04 yz 250, 02 ktm 380, 08 kx450f and I'm sure I missed a few. The rzr plastics, especially the rzr s painted plastics held up twice as good riding the same trails. My stuff gets hand washed after every ride so I'm pretty sure I know my can am plastics ain't holding up like the popo

Agree 100%. Rzr plastics (I had black with all decals pulled) held up way better. Some of you guys are so cool it doesnt matter I guess but I would also prefer them to hold up a little better.
