windshields

I am a new Teryx owner and looking for ideas on a windshield. Any good aftermarket ones? How about customs by the owners?

Kawasaki actually has two designed for the Teryx, A quarter windshield, like what is on the LE versions, and a full windshield.

There are a couple other aftermarket windshields out there, they are pretty costly.

Here is one for example:

After spending a day in the rain and hail and another two days of riding in cooler temps I am looking into a windshield for sure. I would like a two piece that the top can come off and on pretty easily now the search is on. I like the trail armor one though.

That is one clean setup there. I want the ability to take off the top half for warmer months but I bet that works killer nice mod.

I just picked up a base model Teryx and I ordered the full windshield from Kawasaki and I am glad I did. I have been pleased with it so far.

I have an idea to build a windshield I will throw out there for criticque. I want to buy the plexiglass from TAP plalstics and have them bend it down 90 degrees at the bottom so that instead of going straight and sitting on top of the hood it will turn down in front of the dash. I will have to mount it between the roll cage posts and not on top of them to make this work. I will trim it to match the profile of the hood (where the hood screws to the dash) and remove those screws and screw the windshield to the dash in the same holes. I will put a thin foam tape type seal between these to water tight the connection. If I oversize the holes in the plastic a bit it may give this connection enough flexibility to keep it from cracking. I want to make this a split windshield so the top part folds down like the golf cart ones. I need to check out the golf carts to get better ideas on how to do this. I think I can attach this windshield to the frame with the same billet bracket that my flag attaches to. I think it might look cool with the billet brackets and the roll down to the dash. Another idea is to make this lower rolled section out of dark smoked glass and only bring it up a few inches on the roll cage so it doesn't block visibility. It may add a touch of class. The balance of the windshield would be two pieces of clear with the top half folding down onto the bottom half. I am hoping I can accomplish this with double sided snaps. Hope this is all understandable and I welcome any criticism.

I think is sounds like a great idea! One thing to keep in mind, you do not was to seal the top and bottom of the windshield. You can do the bottom, however, you need to be able to allow air-flow over the top. Without doing this, you will create a vaccum within the cab and will find that having a windshield is actually worse than not having one.

Keep us informed, I am interested to see how it turns out!
