    I have passed along your recommendation. We've actually manufactured a tip-up hardcoated windshield with a washer/wiper motor for one of our OEM clients, so I know it can be done.

    Also, sorry I've been away for a while. Been on the road doing the tradeshow thing.

    In post #13 above, I mentioned that we ran a 1,000,000-wipe test on our Quantum hardcoated polycarbonate. Found out today that it was 1,400,000 wipes. Not that it mattered in the end...

    Speaking of tradeshows, next one up is the American International Motorcycle Expo in Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 21-24.

    Motorcycles, scooters, dirtbikes, ATV's and UTV's.

    We'll have our UTV stuff on display. Come on by if you're in the neighborhood.

    A bit off-topic...
    Bought a HD sportster in 2007 and got the QD windshield from HD for like $400. Biggest waste of $$$ ever. Stopped several times out in the desert...so pissed from the buffeting YET still getting hit in the face by bugs, that i was determined to toss it out in the sage. Thinking of the price finally stopped me. Finally hacked up the brackets to raise the shield, ruining it aesthetically, but making functional.

    I then did what i should have done in the 1st place and bought the PlexiFaring 3 from National cycle for like $150. TOTALLY transformed the bike with a calm pocket of air surrounding the rider. I could, literally, ride in 40 degree weather with just a jacket due to the absence of wind. Some of the best money I've ever spent.

    Good job, NC!

    Are we getting any closer for a windshield for the 1000?

    We first introduced that windshield in 1970. Other windshield designs have come and gone, but the Plexifairing just keeps going and going and...

    Glad you like it. Ride safe.

    Management is aware of the demand for windshields for the Pioneer 1000, as well as options for a tip-up or fold-down polycarbonate windshield as requested in this thread.

    Unfortunately, the engineering department is backed up with a huge workload of OEM projects right now. Aftermarket projects always take a back seat to OEM projects.

    I'm just as anxious as you to get this done.

    And there contract is up too.

    They have a nice windshield but I really dont think the market picked up on it like hoped.

    I haven't seen one in person or even a picture of one outside what's shown.
