I think there is a mixed bag on here. But I ended up buying one from Extreme Metal Products. They have one that has straps so you can pull the top portion off quickly on warm days or if you really want that cold rush. haha It was pretty reasonable I felt.

I have the Moose folding windshield. It is a nice piece but after seeing a Yamaha one I think I would spend the extra money for one. It is a little bit taller and the hardware is nicer. I will probably replace mine at some point with the Yamaha. Being 6'6" that extra couple of inches would be nice.

I have the Yamaha factory windshield and it is pretty nice. I will be switching to a folding laminated safety glass windshield next year though. ArmorTech is about to release theirs. I had a lexan windshield on my rhino. I hunt at my deer lease every weekend from october to february. We have a mile and half ride from the camp to the property thats wet and muddy. I have to wipe the winshield down at least once a weekend. It didnt take very long for it to scratch and get cloudy. The new hard coat they put on may be a little better.

I don't understand the windscreen that comes on the Viking. How does that little piece of plastic do anything useful? They purposely make it shitty so that you have to go buy a better one after market.

haven't people on the forum built their own windscreens? I bet it wouldn't be that difficult of a DIY project.

The Viking doesnt come with any. That little shitty one is purchased after. And from what people say, it makes a difference at speeds.

I'm wondering why a windshield is needed in the first place unless you have a cab enclosure. Perhaps trailing on trails with heavy brush it would help and/or in real cool temps at high travel speeds. But other than this I don't think I'd want a windshield, especially the poly ones that will scratch eventually from cleaning and use.

Just wanted to throw this out there. Went riding today on some very dusty trails...I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend a rear window if you put on a front windshield. After only 10 miles or so, we all looked like we had been rolling around on the road. If you will be riding on dusty roads the vortex will suck the dirt in from the back side BIG TIME!!!!

Thats not really true, i had a Fullsize 2010 Ranger 500, with no back window at all, and i tried both, full & half windshields, and both sucked in dust, The half seemed to be worse IMO.

The dust problem is reduced considerably if you have a coup,e vent ones hi on the windshield. It lets some air push into the cab and keeps the vacuum down for sucking in from the sides. My observation anyhow. This was with a arci at prowler.
