    Any thoughts on the Polaris flip down poly windshield?

    I'm looking to outfit a 900xp with a front windshield, roof, and rear windshield. I like the idea of having the wind in my face in the summer. Is anyone using the Polaris flip down/removable upper windshield? How do you like it? Any reason to get the nicer fixed glass shield?

    Do you trailer your machine with the windshield on?

    I have had the flip down definetly fold down to trailer . Wind pushes it out where they fold and gasket comes lose . I like the flexibility of it very hard to put in and take out of rubber mounts on hood . You can even remove top portion easy when it's summer and don't need it

    I don't see much info or pics of it. The one I do see almost looks as if when folded down it has 2 points faced back towards driver as it's not straight fold...kind of looks dangerous. Am I seeing that correct?

    If you want wind in your face buy a half windshield...or save your $50. bucks and drive with no windshield its exactly the same. As far as full windshield it must be hardcoat or glass. Economy poly will scratch if a bird s*** on it.

    The Polaris flip down is hardcoat. I live in Southwest Florida and really just need windshield for when you get caught out in the rain (about every summer time ride) and on those cold winter nights (50 deg) . So fold down be perfect for the way I would use it.

    Do you have any pictures? Does it seal good when closed? Is it tight and secure when folded down? Does the rubber seal get in your line of sight or bother you when driving? I need a windshield for hunting season when it is 20-50 degrees out, but want something I can easily remove during the summer when it is 100+ degrees outside.
