    There are lots of questions regarding "what were they thinking" on these things!

    I have a few small minor scratches in the upper have of my honda split windsheild. But the bottom is so scratched that with a little bit of dust and sunlight its pretty tough to see through. I am kinda hard on it ill admitt that. Lots of over grown trials with low hanging branches. Depends on where and how you ride, i wish i would have went glass.

    They call it a "two piece hard cost". It's a flat out lie! I'm pissed about that one.

    I'm in the process of buying everything for another P1K3. I have the glass windshield currently but would like a split screen on the next one. Just concerned about scratches. We drive through a ton of branches then the snow covers the windshield and we are constantly using the wiper to clear it off. I'm thinking I need to stick to glass? Thoughts?

    I ran wipers on my hard coat this winter on 5-6 snow runs. I didnt get any scratches from the wipers. But make sure the windshield is spotless befor thinking about using them

    Nice. I'm a big UK fan. I went to EKU but both sons went to UK. Have you been on any of the public trails in my area. If so, which ones were good enough to try? Thanks

    I can't tell by the pictures how that windshield stays up?? Do you have to stop and tighten something or just flip it up like the Polaris ones with the gas struts??

    I am sure @JTW will confirm, but I believe it is gas struts.

    Yup.. it's got struts. Just a simple lever to hold it in place.. or release it and give it a shove to open.

    Super atv flip up windshield is the bees knees. One ride it began raining to keep up with my group I had to run 60 mph is all it took for us to buy a windshield. I have towed at 65mph with it flipped open without an issue plus i like the vent option. But be aware closed or vented at speed the cage shakes it's a little concerning at first. In tight trails I haven't hit it on anything yet but our last ride it grabbed the web of a banana spider it swung into the cab I almost rear ended a rzr 1000.

    Pioneer 1000 | DFK.cz have one on order, had this system on my Yamaha Viking and love it. No more removing my Honda front glass when its hot out just open the DFK.
    I currently have the Honda 1000 5 full top, front glass, full doors, rear piece with slider window. top is notched for 52" curved light bar so that it doesn't have to be on top "mounted to windshield" front rack is also mounted to front windshield. all will be for sale soon

    How much does the setup cost and can you get just the windshield and will it work with oem roof? That's exactly the windshield I want.
