I had it on my 2016, it held great, try not to tighten it so hard.

I found it more effective after I sprayed (periodically) "Rain-X for plastic" on the MR-10 lexan.

I installed it a little bit off the bottom middle to the right so if I have a passenger, he/she becomes automatically an intermittent wiper minion.

I guess that for Lefties it's going to be more comfortable on the top left pointing down.

All poly windshields aren’t the same. Some have an extra hard coating and are relatively hard to scratch and some don’t. Seizmik did some videos and I’m sure others have well.

If you have a softer or noncoated version, any debris on the windshield is likely to scratch as it cleans with a windshield wiper.

When I bought my new 800 Ranger I bought a Polaris Poly windshield, I went out one morning and there was dew on the windshield from overnight. So I went and grabbed the rubber squeegee I use on my house windows and squeegeed it and took off for a ride. By the time it dried and I stopped to get a beverage. I noticed I had scratched the crap out of my two week old windshield. Useing a rubber squeegie. If you buy poly it MUST BE hard coat or your wasting your money.

If you install a poly windshield it will scratch the first time you get mud on it and turn on the wiper. You can install a wiper on anything. If you want to be able to see safely, cough up the bucks for a glass windshield. You won't remember the price in 6 mos. If you waste your money on a poly windshield you will either be disappointed, or you will eventually buy a glass windshield and you will never forget the price of the poly windshield!
