2016 grizzly 700, rack tube diameter?

I'm going to mount a few small LED bars on the front and rear racks and i can't find my calipers. Can anyone take a quick diameter measurement on the outer tubes of the racks? I want the LED bars hanging down from the tubes and easily adjustable, so pipe clamps seem the quickest, cheapest, cleanest way.

I'm 99.7% sure they are a hair over .75" I believe .76"

I got mounts for my light bar from axis alloy, they are fantastic products but you get what you pay for

I just went and measured mine with a caliper, 0.90 was what I got. I mounted my light bar using the clamps below with a small piece of rubber inner tube wrapped around the bar to keep it from moving around. Its worked well so far.

Thank you for measuring! 0.9 means 25mm clamps should work with a bit of rubber to snug it up.

3/4". I went with 22 mm clamps and they worked great. 25 mm was too big for mine.

Excuse me. I meant 7/8" not 3/4"

That's alright, 0.9*2,54 is 22 and a bit mm, so 7/8" I realised 25 mm wasn't going to cut it as that's almost a full inch. (1"=25.4mm)
I ordered a few of these:
Universal 1 Set Black Motorcycle Handlebar Mirror Mount 10mm 7/8" Aluminum Clamp | eBay
They should make mounting a breeze and they're aluminium AND cheap! I'll keep you posted, it'll take a while because of economy international mail from Hong Kong.
