Notice on the Arctic Cat web site that they are offering a Trail blazer accessory kit on 2021 select models.
Looks like it includes larger tunnel bag, handlebar bag, taller windshield and front bumper


This may be old news.

I think this is a step in the right direction for cat and "customization" and I think I'm gonna opt for it on my RR when I order it but does anyone know if this comes as a separate kit you install and keep stock parts or if they ship the sleds with this installed?

I was just on cats website and now when you click on the kit it shows you what it looks like on the sled.

Kind of old news as the "kit" option was in place back in the fall when I ordered my 2021 as I was picking up my 2020..... but not discussed much at all it seems.

I have been trying to get this exact question answered..... and the best response that I got directly from Cat is that some items will come factory installed, others will be dealer installed. Standard items replaced by these items will not be included.

SO that tells me, the stock small bumper and stock small windshield will not come with the sled...... same with the smaller standard tunnel / belt bag.

My buddy got me a price from sun and snow and asked about this for the RR, John told him that as far as he knows it’ll be factory installed and no parts come with it as well. It’s a decent deal either way but nothing I really NEED. Wish they’d make the tunnel flares like the limited has an option on the RR.

John told me the same. He wasn't 100% sure, and that is why I questioned Cat directly.

I would rather have the tunnel flares and goggle bag over the handle bar bag. I'll never use that.......
But I already have the mid-size windshield, 2 different Pro MNT bumpers, and the large and mid-size tunnel bags..... so not sure why I ordered my 2021 RR with it..... But I did... LOL....

The bumper was really the only thing I’d need, I just ordered a tunnel bag/saddle bags for a gaspe trip I’m doing in March so I’ll have that if I need more storage, I won’t be home to go out there and order my sled until middle of February so I’ll probably still change my mind 80 times on it by then.
