Besides cost, What are your opinions on window choice for trail riding? I know glass won't scratch as easy but will it hold up without cracking on trail riding?
I ordered my glass tip out windshield but not here yet. I had the tip out on the Ranger and I imagine this will be the same. It is not designed to remove easily as it required unbolting the hinges and support arms. The windshield has 3 positions. Closed, full open or tipped up a few inches to let air in. I really like the glass as it does not scratch like the hard poly. Only downsides I experienced with the Ranger are some added weight, cost, and the fact that everything that hits the hood, ends up coming at you. Still I think its the best option. I put 1400 miles on my Ranger trail riding. No problems and not breaks or chips.I was thinking about the one with that flips up but wondering how hard it will be to remove. I noticed there is some drilling to get in mounted but haven't seen one yet to see how it actually mounts in.
Polaris has a break rate of approx. 60% on its glass windshields. Some of the larger dealers have glass companies come by twice a week just to fix them. Granted most of the breakage occurs during shipping. Glass does do a better job of not collecting dust, and when it does you just wipe it off with whatever you can find with no fear of scratching. Both have advantages and disadvantages.How often does a glass windshield crack or chip anyways?
i used to be like you but i have more money than timeWell Alaskan47 that is what the 100 horses are for. lol. i bought the full poly for the durability of it. but if gets scratched too easily i will build one from the frame i have. I'm not going to spend over a grand for something i can build.
I like the tip out window but I got to say my wife can not unlatch it and it is even harder to latch. The dealer said there is a metal plate under the dash. I am waiting for the dash to crack opening and closing this. It snaps very hard.Got my glass tip out windshield today. Hopefully have this rig all buttoned up soon. Waiting on the opening door upper Windows when they come out. Already paid the dealer for them so I want Polaris to spank their pony and get em up here!
