My other bike is a 07 650i, When I put my skids on my 09 I have to take off the bumper. While its off I will check if it fits the 650i. Cant help you with your fitment question though, sorry.

Here is my front moose on my 09 750, Hard to tell in the pics but the bumper fits up close to the factory one, a very nice piece, and it feels solid, does not move without the quad moving.

Where did you read that it fits all years 650? The moose site states only 08-09 650...

bluebeast hit it on the nose, ive been comparing oem schematics, and looking at your pics makes me think the grabbar would prob be in the way, but i think i could could cut that off, cant tell from your pics where it mounts, im guessin at the bottom& below theplastic oem bumper cover? in 4 connections? if that is the case i can make it work by just removin the grab bar, i want it more lookin at your pics, was gonna get the brushguard that you have on the 650, but they dont look as strong and my oem bump has bent with very lil pressure, since the moose goes over, i thought double protection! does it look like it would bolt up to you, just eyeballin the front of both?

thanks , ill b watchin for the update, i bet they will if the grab bar is cut off, i also noticed the headlight covers/ housings are seperate on models w grab bar, but a one piece including the grill on newer models, im thinkin bout ordering that as well, looks like it will cover where i cut grab bar off, and its only like 30bucks.

ok looks like it will not interfere wit the grab bar, but the lower 2 mount holes do not line up. they are farther apart and lower on the older brute. did not get the rear bumper in to check fitment yet.

Note. you will have to modify aftermarket aluminum front skid plate to use the moose bumper. not a big deal just cut 2 small notches out of it.

what size big horns are on your brute ? I'm going to go with new tires , have the stockers now on my 07 Brute 750i ? I'm heavily leaning towards the bighorns . I don't want to lose the wheelie factor , they will be mounted on the same rims as yours (without the plow on it) .

I'd also like to get this mosse front bumper also , I figure if I end up with tires where I lose power and can't wheelie anymore , than I'm going to get one of these front bumpers, I also wondered if they'd fit an 07 BF 750 since it wasn't listed on Moose's site.

Did you notice any loss of power adding the tires and the front bumper ?
I have a warn winch and a Moose power module on mine now with stock tires and it wheelies like crazy and I keep up with sport quads no problem.

I have 25" Bighorns(origional not to 2.0) and the moose bumper on mine and I can still wheelie no problem. Lost about 3km/hr top speed witht the tires though. Fixed it by adding the dynatek CDI.
