Looking at getting a windshield and roof for my 2019 1000-5. After reading several threads about windshields and roofs I am concerned about back flow that the wrong combination might create. I carry 4-5 passengers most of the time and basically want to have some protection from bugs and rain. Not as concerned about dust but obviously the less dust the better. I like the wind in my face and the airy feeling of having no windshield or roof but realistically need some kind of limited protection.

Welcome to the club from South FL!
Honda OEM Hard top and SATV Flip up windshield. The hard roof makes it it a bit louder in the cab compared to a bikini top, but it holds up real good on the trail. And the SATV windshield is awesome, best of both worlds

Pics!!
Thanks for your thoughts. Really excited I found this resource. Lots of good ideas on here.

Welcome from Washington.

SATV flip windshield and SATV transparent top work pretty well for an open air feel, there is a little bit of dust but not too bad. SATV transparent roof is pretty good too, allows light in and is easy to clean.

I am installing the back wind gaurd on due to the summer dust kicking up and there is more than previously thought. I have included the link to the back wall/dust cover I'm going to try. I will let you know how it works once I get it and have it installed +picture.

Definitelty get a windshield that either flips up or is otherwise vented. I have a Tusk aluminum roof and Tusk glass full windshield. The full windshield is great in the winter. The rest of the year, I pull the windshield off because of the amount of dust I eat when the trails are dry.

I have had a 1000-5 since 2016 and have been searching for the perfect combo myself. I have the OEM hard top and full soft doors and rear panel. I also alternate between a full glass window in the winter and a flip up poly windshield in the summer. Both have their place. I have searched high and low for a flip up glass windshield since I bought the machine with no luck. Until last week I found that "Hard Cabs makes their own flip up glass windshield that has been available since May of last year. They look great and will be ordering one soon. Also will sell my other 2 as this new one should fill all my needs. In hot dry summer days you need air flow. Winter I don't want any. The rear panel is a must summer or winter as it stops dust and snow from circulating back in from behind you. So far all the add-ons have worked with the OEM hard top. Hope this helps.

If you want the airflow you might try one of these "bug busters" or similar wind screen...

and an "alien shade" or similar roof...


EDIT....never mind, just reread the op and rain protection these are not.

Are you happy with the Tusk Roof? I do quite a bit of hunting and really need something that doesn’t rattle. Could you plz send a link ?

SATV 2 piece flip windshield and an Alien Shade roof. No dust when the windshield is fully open. When partial or closed here comes the dust!

Just got my 1000-3 and am also looking at windshield options. Got this mostly for hunting. Even early season hunting at 5000+ ft elevation it can be near freezing in the morning, and then 90 degrees by afternoon. So need something for morning, but want it to open when it's hot.

It looks like most of the flip windshields are Poly, I don't know if that is a long term problem to see thru. Seems like many people recommend glass. But what about some windshields I see that fold down? Do they bang around on the hood? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I've got the honda two piece hard coat. Its had 3500 miles and many hits. I dont have issues with scratching or swirling. I busted it a while back and will be replacing it with the satv flip up. The honda windshield doesn't allow as much airflow as I'd like when it's hot and to open or close the honda two piece you can plan to stop it's a bit of a pita.
